Spread too thin...

Never have I thought I "spread myself too thin" until this semester.  Nursing school will do that to you.  I'm sure my friends feel the same way.  Growing a baby, nursing school, working, weekend plans, and clinical is a LOT to squeeze into 7 days each week.

As I was making my "final countdown" to-do list (yes, I sang the Rocky song in my head when I wrote it), I started to get excited and freak out all at once.
1.  I only have 50 days to finish all of these assignments and clinical hours.
2.  I only have 50 days until I am FINISHED with nursing school!
3.  I'll have a baby in 2 months.
4.  I don't know where we are going to live after January.

My goal for the next two months is to take time and enjoy my pregnancy and stop stressing so much about everything that needs to be done.  I refuse to wish away the next two months because that would mean I was wishing away the time I get to spend growing this precious baby.  My mantra for the next 50 days will definitely be, "Just breathe."
