Tomorrow I'm taking the dreaded NCLEX (nursing board exam). Please don't ask me how I did, I'm so worried I won't pass. If I do, I'll make sure to let you know. If I don't, assume I'm taking it again in a couple of months. It almost makes me nauseated just thinking about it. I've really tried to study hard this week. really. I'm already using the babies as an excuse though, how can I really focus on studying when its so much more fun to do the following:
write this post
do research on project nursery
plan quilt patterns
make lists of baby names
google "is _____ normal at 16 weeks pregnant?"
plan how I will make my own adorable baby books
periodically ensure I'm not missing out on any killer ksl deals
peek at the 6 different books I bought about raising twins
filter out pants I'm no longer wearing and put them in storage
read about how celebrities w/ twins still have all the "normal challenges" even w/ their live-in baby nurse
make a list of all the disney movies we should own

These are important things too, right?
I've been trying to do my best to prepare, even if my best doesn't seem that awesome right now. So all I can do is pray that this will be enough because I'm so sick of studying. I don't even know what on earth I'm doing. Who will hire me? How long will I be able to work anyways? Why nursing? I should have stuck w/ being a high school home economics teacher, I'd be organizing a cake decorating contest for teens right now...

I totally know how you feel - I'm taking the GRE next weekend and wake up in the middle of the night worrying about it. I'm sure you'll do fine! I just keep telling myself that it is re-takeable.. ahaha. Good Luck!!

You will do just great, Katie! I didn't even study, and I passed. The test is designed to make you feel like a failure, so if you keep getting question after question that seems bewilderingly difficult, you're probably doing great.

P.S. Building that Disney movie collection is a killer. It's so lame that they only release their movies every 10 years or so and you can't buy them any other time. Abby has been desperate to see Beauty and the Beast for the last year, and (finally) it's coming out on DVD again. You have to grab them when you see them.

Good luck Katie! I will be thinking of you. Just take your time and use common sense. Good luck again.

Good luck! You'll do great! I'll pray for you too. :) I love your little prego belly. What a cute momma!

Yikes! You will do great! just concentrate and I'll pray that you get the fewest amount of questions and that you'll pass. One question at a time! Good Luck!
