Yay for you, Rachel! I can't wait to hear about your experiences. (Obviously) it's one of my favorite subjects.
I think once I get settled in my new job, I can start looking into the doula thing. One of our travelers was talking to me about it; she runs a group of doulas who were mostly labor nurses. It wouldn't take me long to get the certification. I'd like to get the lactation training first, though. Usually it's a 2-day course for labor nurses.
I sat on the couch playing a mindless iPhone game tonight and came up with some new plots to add to my story collection. I've been so tired lately that I haven't had time to THINK and be creative. So that was nice. I just popped some granola bars in the oven, and I have to do the budget, but after that if I have time I'll start writing.
I'm going to try to hit more of the Challenges this time around, too. If I can place first, maybe next year I could be in the running for the prize.
Hope all y'all Americans had a nice 4th. I slept all day and then we went to dinner; then we drove around and ended up kind of double parking on a street overlooking Redondo Beach behind a bunch of other double parked cars, all of which kept their vehicles on so we could zoom out of there as soon as the fireworks show ended. It was simple and fun and non-stressful.
Back to work tonight...I think it must have slowed down because they haven't called me the last two nights after a week of constant calls. We almost ran out of rooms, and had several precipitous deliveries.
Have a good Sunday, everyone.
