Aw, Shann, I totally felt loved and wrapped up in peace just reading your beautiful prayers. What a blessing you are to all of us.
It's finally warming up around here - winter is short in these parts!
And next weekend we're driving to Phoenix which is roughly the same temperature as us right now. It'll be a nice quick break. I'm excited to see my old coworker who is a huge encouragement to me and has challenged my understanding about the medical field and how what we do as nurses can have an impact on the patient's experience. She just moved there last year and hasn't had many visitors from home. Not that I have been in Seattle for awhile but we still keep in contact via FB and stuff.
Well, I did work without having to take standby, and it was plenty busy except for Wednesday night which suddenly got busy at 5:30am. That's just when it tends to get busy for us and it's too late to call someone in and too early to get day shifters to work before their shift. So we scramble. We really scrambled last night too after 4am. I had the lady whose labor was less than an hour.
Fun, but kind of a wild ride!
We were going to hang out with our small group friends tonight but they cancelled at the last minute, so we went to the improv group again. Played different games but it was still fun. It's a good exercise for me because I always complain that I'm not creative like other people. It forces me to make things up on the fly. We are considering joining the group in the future, which would let me try things like speech writing, too. After we pay for the hundred other things we need...
I'm super tired tonight, but at least my pain is marginally reduced after chiropractic this week. My new chiro is great; she is very competent and is comprehensive in her approach. I'm anticipating getting better this year. Of course I do need to submit to doing the exercises, but that's doable if I put my mind to it. Debating working out tonight or just sleeping. We'll see what takes priority.
Glad to see almost everyone catching up. Hope you all have a great weekend.
