My Holiday Letter for 2013. For those that I didn’t have your address I’m sorry you’re not receiving this in a Christmas card. I didn’t have the opportunity to seek, find, and address cards to everyone (if you want me to have your address, pm or email it to me); I was extremely fortunate to get cards out this year to those that received them. :-)
I hope that everyone has a WONDERFUL Christmas and New Year!! I appreciated each and everyone of you.
Holiday Letter: from the desk of Eleisha March:
This year has been full of changes and readjustments. The New Year 2013 brought me to my final semester of RN
Nursing School, and graduation in May. This was the culmination of a crazy two years of my life, I found myself with a lot of time on my hands and not really sure what to do with myself…I had lived, breathed, and basically ate nursing school for two years and all of a sudden it was over.
I started working at our local hospital in March as a CNA to learn the system, and then after graduation I took a position as a Registered Nurse (RN) on the floor. Not to be idle, I took a part time job in August with a local Home-Health agency, which allows me to learn wound care and keep up with venous puncture. This month (Dec), I started to cross train in the Emergency Room at the hospital.
In July I sold my house I built in 2004 to my brother and his family, they had lived with me since 2009 when they returned from Ireland. This allowed me freedom to listen to my gypsy blood and have mobility, and made it possible for them to all have their own bedrooms and a house to call their own.
In August, I packed my backpack again and went back to school – crazy I know. I am currently attending Central Methodist University to complete my BSN. I hope to be completed with this in May 2015.
The end of November and first of December consisted of me being on stage. I held a role in our church’s annual dinner theater, a nine night production. I was the horrid sister that no one liked, Aunt Hilda, in the play Accommodations.
After graduation, in May, I ran off for nine days to Washington State to visit my friend (Jen), relax, and enjoy some time away ~ something I had not done in two years. I spent time in Wenatchee, Stehekin, and on Whidbey Island (where I was able to visit my Uncle Paul). Stehekin is a little town that you can access only by boat, plane, or hiking; it has a post office and a bakery…if you want time away from everything to relax this is the place to go. Washington is a great, beautiful state and it was exactly what the doctor ordered.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
