I better write all this down RIGHT NOW while I'm thinking about it.
Today was my first day of core nursing classes (the ones that really count!). It was also Gabe's first day of daycare!! Turns out Mother Nature has a sense of humor and the wind chill was below zero when we left the house, oh so early, in the morning.
We did get out the door only to forget Gabe's boots, which didn't matter because it was too cold to play outside at daycare but still bugged me. We got Mike dropped off at work and headed to campus. I got a good parking spot (benefit of being there at 7:30). I hauled my backpack, laptop bag, Gabe, his snowsuit, and his backpack all inside the school.
I dropped him off and he barely said bye to me! He was the first one there so he went off and was busy playing right away with all the cool toys.
Then I skedaddled to my first class, Pharmacology, which was at 8am. I get there and we sit around for awhile and at about 8:15 another instructor comes in and apologizes that we were supposed to get an email that there was no class today, that it starts NEXT Wed. Grrr!! So now I have 2 hours to kill on campus while I wait for my next class to start. It was a long two hours.
The next class is Nursing Fundamentals, we get settled in, do the obligatory paperwork, and jump right in. It was an alright intro and seems like it could be interesting. It is basically a theory class about the profession of nursing (subtitled "How not to get sued" by me).
I am done at noon and head over to the daycare to pick Gabe up. When he sees me he immediately bursts in to tears because they were just starting lunch and I interrupted him LOL!! There were three other kids there at that point, two girls and a boy. They all waved and said hi. I did finally get Gabe to calm down and we took his lunch to go.
At home he tells me that it was a boring morning because he was by himself for most of it (I think the other kids came around 10). He did enjoy playing in the muscle room, where they play when it is too cold outside. He waffles between telling me he's glad he went and wanting to never go back again!
Monday we do it all over again, but only for the afternoon since there was a last minute schedule change by one of my instructors :/ So we'll be on campus together from 12:30-4 and then head right to pick up Mike.
I have about 115 pages to read this week for Fundamentals, my online Psych class will probably start posting things tomorrow or Friday. So I'm off and running! Although I won't really be running because my backpack weighs a ton and is already stuffed to the max!
