The ongoing saga continues.  Took a trip to watch Leadfoot Lizzie (aka Jamie) get her second Baccalaureate Degree (BSN).  Now to pass the boards or whatever they call them and get a job.  Thinking that whatever medical facility she hooks up with will pay for the graduate degrees.  Kind of scary when you realize that she got the second degree in just a year and a half.  

One down and one to go.

Much whining from the other one about lack of sleep and apparently three and a half more years for him to finish.


Thanks to all for your support over time and to SASS for the scholarship help.

Leadfoot,

Good luck in your job search. Play up to the HR folks sympathies. Tell your interviewers that by April you're going to have 4 hungry muzzles to feed.
