Sticking, Treading, Skating, Brushing

Last night in Pharm we learned about injection sites, needles, and finally how to do injections on the Sponge Bob Square Pad. I loved it and really can't wait to do it on a human. Is that weird?

Class is going pretty good. I feel like I'm treading with my head barely above water and if I don't really start disciplining myself and organize my time better, I may just start to sink. It's amazingly hard to focus my time at home when I'm caring after my 2 silly girls, packing to move in a week, and have my first exam in Theory next Wednesday. I'm not a schedule-y type person or the list-y type. I'm accustomed to just going with the flow at home day-to-day and in school I have always just skated by with B's - not really fulfilling my potential - I know I could do better.

This is hard for me. It's a lot.

But I'm also loving it and am soaking it all in. I want to learn more and more and implement it all right now. I'm excited about caring for people that cannot care for themselves, teaching them, and healing them. It's incredibly empowering.

The girls are also learning a thing or two.

It's good you're excited about injections- I imagine that's a pretty big part of the job. I've always thought it would be great to work in the medical field, I will admit thought, injections are the part I've always felt turned off by.

I was the same way in school. The times I really applied myself though, I was always very surprised at how well I learned and retained material. The challenge was actually sticking to a study schedule, which I can imagine is even more tough with little ones! You can do it though! You are incredible!

You look great in that picture. Seriously. Foxy. The girls did a nice job grooming you.

I'm such a listy-type. Never was until about 2 years after I got married. I don't know what happened. But I'm now a lover of the list! Embrace the list. Love the list! I don't know how you do it all. It's very admirable.

You'll do AWE.SOME at school. Seriously it'll be super stressful with kids but they will drive you and you know you can do it because you created 2 beautiful little girls...everything else is cake compared to that. :)

p.s. I was in that same position with my girls this morning...having your face brushed is quite the experience.

I'm excited for you to experience giving and injection to a "human"! It's alot like spongebob square pad, but it will talk back to you, and that's the fun part. Some people will tell you that they didn't even feel it and you'll feel great and then some people will scream before you even come near them or faint on the floor. it's good times! You are going to be such an awesome nurse as you are such and awesome and caring person! Had so much fun tonight! We will defiately have to do that again, but somewhere with better service that's for sure! haha
