I can't believe it. After so many years of classes, volunteering, new jobs and waiting.....I got into veterinary school in my home state. I *almost* even considered going to the Caribbean! But here I am.....late 30 something...and about to embark upon 4 years of intense study, penniless-ness, time apart from my husband and possibly cats...and I'm scared, but so excited too. This is what I wanted....right? Right??
