Hi ya'll. I'm sorry its been so long since I've blogged. Mostly its just been killing me trying to get used to a new routine. I worked Monday night which means that yesterday was a blur of cat naps and the kids. I slept great last night, and today I have nothing to do but clean. ugh. Tomorrow my aunt and uncle are flying in from Texas.. which means I am getting my hair chopped off this weekend (YEAH). I work tomorrow night AND Friday night... so I'm not sure when I'll get the chance to hang out with them. My hubby is taking my uncle fly fishing both Friday and Saturday. He is so excited to go that he has been out in the driveway practicing his cast every night when he gets home. Saturday they are all coming over to celebrate my 29th birthday. It really isn't until the 25th, but since they will be here they thought it would be fun. I cant believe I am going to be 29.
My diet has gone down the tubes... as has working out. When I work at night, I don't work out that day so that I don't use up all my energy. I also eat all day, then all that night at work, then all the next day too. What a piggy! I totally have to find a way to work that out. Then I don't even workout the next day because I am too tired. grrrr. I have today to get my diet back on track, and to get in a really good workout. One of the nurses went in to a Weight Watchers meeting yesterday and called to invite me, but alas, I was sleeping. I don't know that we can afford it just yet. Maybe next month I can try it out.
Speaking of work... I am loving it. Someone asked me to tell more about what I do. Well, I am in charge of filling out the paperwork in the delivery room while the delivery is taking place. I help where I can but try to stay out of the way. After the birth, I help the mother by getting her cleaned up and moved into her new room. I get to give the babies there first bath and then teach the mothers all about changing diapers, cleaning the umbilical cord.. all the great stuff that a new mommy needs to know. I take vital signs through out the night and help where I can. I make sure that the delivery rooms are stocked with everything ... and take care of alot of the odd and end stuff around the department. When all that is done I am in the nursery, where I get to comfort the babies while their Mommy's try and get some sleep. It is definitely a dream job for me. Hubby asked me last night if it was hard for me seeing all those newborn babies knowing that I cant have anymore. Although babies are precious, I love the two I have and don't really want anymore of our own. I am just happy to help the woman who get to experience motherhood again, or for the first time. It is such a joyous occasion that I am very happy to be a part in. My time for newborn babies have come and gone... now I get to enjoy everything else!!
Well.. I am off to get this house back in order... take a long bike ride with the girls... eat lots of fruit and veggies... and find myself again!
Have a Blessed Day!
