Why Nursing?

Why Nursing?

One of my friends/coworkers asked me the other day – “Why did you go into nursing?” “Why Nursing?” Oh gosh, what a question. After these last few months, I have seriously asked myself “WHY?” so many times and have honestly forgotten why I went into this career. So let me try to tell you why I chose nursing. What has helped me keep going during this slump in the career? To be frank, paychecks and student loans. I got bills…

New Addition to the family!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT! Mark and I have added an addition to our little family that consists of two cats, ourselves, and part-time children! We have added a puppy! His name is Jaspar…. which I like to spell JAZZPURR!! Bwahahahah. We went to Seattle Humane Society to look at a puppy, that honestly neither of us were very interested in, and as we were walking down that corridor past all the other dogs I spotted Jazz and stopped at his cage he shared…

Weirdest patient interaction

Weirdest patient interaction

When I think back on the last five months of nursing, my most awkward moment was when a patient asked me for a hug. Literally, she put the call light on, the NAC answered, came and told me the patient needed the nurse, I went into the patient’s room and asked what she needed…. her response, “A hug”.  I blankly stared…  not knowing what to do ( yes, the logical thing to do is hug her). I’m not really a…

Here is it. juice of 1/2 a lemon 1tbsp Nutmeg 2ish tbsp of baking soda to…

It’s a dangerous business.

It’s a dangerous business.

I am restless. The doors keep slamming. I know I am meant for more than this life I am living right now. The day to day routine just going to my little jobs is training, building, and shaping me for something else. I JUST KNOW IT!  I am ready. I am going to find a path, make it if I have to, and I am going to go live my life the way I want to. I need an adventure….

Everybody and their mom…

Everybody and their mom…

Decisions, coffee, kittens, and fine dining.

Decisions, coffee, kittens, and fine dining.

So my life has been crazy. My divorce is finalized in about 10 days, I need to study to pass a test or two, work has been lacking, rent needs to be paid, a roommate looks like it may happen for when I have to move out around October, I’m losing weight without really trying ( I credit this to not having to study ALL day and being in a healthier place than I was in the marriage), I enjoy…
