Well, I’ve been missing in action for the last few weeks… life has been a whirlwind lately!

On May 19, Asali and I had a photo shoot with Jo Danehy for Sharon Miner’s upcoming book, the next in her Beloved Horse Series. Sharon contacted me several weeks ago asking if she could feature Asali and me in her next book – apparently, she has been following my blog and liked what she had read!

Here are just a few of my favorite photos from the shoot with Jo:

On May 21, I participated in commencement at California State University, Chico. Although I went through the graduation ceremony, I still have to return next semester to finish up some classes. I am officially done in December and will be receiving a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with Minors in Health Education and Religious Studies.

Following graduation, I completed the Hurst Review, an intense 3-day preparation class for the NCLEX (a national test I have to take to become licensed as a registered nurse – also known as boards).

Since the endurance ride I was going to compete in over the weekend was postponed (due to the recent outbreak of Equine Herpes Virus or EHV-1), Gary and I decided to take the boys to the Silver Dollar Fair in Chico. It was there that we met and fell in love with (and subsequently adopted) a Sheprador puppy.

Finally, today I attended a class on Hemodynamics (the study of blood flow) to prepare for critical care nursing. This afternoon, I was offered an RN position working full time night shift in the Intensive Care Unit (pending licensure, of course).
