Would I be good at it...

Forever and ever Ive talked about wanting to be something...off and on its been a nurse. Everyone wants to be successful, but its so hard to find what your "good" at. So far Ive found that I am awesome at drinking wine, making coffee, and memorizing shopping lists. But those dont make you money or give you a sense of pride. I think nursing is such a great career...you make money and your doing something meaningful. But what if I sucked at it. It would take me a while to become an RN and atleast a year and a half to get my LPN...I think it would be worth it, i think my brain keeps going back to it for a reason. Maybe I would being an outstanding nurse...I (unlike most) actually LOVE old people. I crave fast paced environments and actually work better under pressure. I've battled with this decision since I was pregnant with Kaylee. I could be like patch adams...except he was a dr and that is a little much...I dont know, I guess I'll have to figure it out tomorrow.

Other news...My parents were in town for the weekend and I discovered that my dad is actually pretty handy. He fixed a ton of little things that we have completely ignored, such as the continuos beeping of the alarm, the rusty grill, the broken pantry door, the semi dirty air filter (in my defense the ac guy said it was fine), and the misleading and incorrect time on the microwave (no wonder the kids have had a hard time going to bed, the clock was 4 hours fast) just to name a few. My mom was very helpful too and having her with me to run errands was incredible. Not having to take 5 kids and a shopping cart into the bathroom was very nice aswell as standing alone in line without hearing "can I have this? Can I have that? oooo ooo i need one of those!" 50 times! what jerk decided they would torture parents on their way out of the store by putting candy in the check out line?? Probably a guy. Oh and lastly Jacob got his first haircut! And I literally mean that he got A HAIR cut, that long one that was in his face...and I must say that he looks very handsome :)

SO thats about it...My baby is with my parents until Wednesday and I am confident that he will learn how to crawl, talk and feed himself in that short amount of time.

Hope everyone has a good week! all 3 of ya! :)

  1. I miss having a babe. I would have more!! I also have a hard time in the check out line, I say that I already got a treat for everyone or I say I'll get it later or I actually let them get something. The older kids are getting smart and bringing their money to the store specifically for the candy.
    You sound like you will be an awesome ER nurse!!!!! Now if we can just figure out how to work at the same ER, heh. If you love old people (which I do as well), you will do well. I remember one old lady tearing up and asking me to pray with her and blessed me, it was unexpected and incredible. It is sad when you see the same elders over and over and in worse condition but damn, it makes you work harder to help them. I can't see myself leaving the ER unless I figure out how to be a great hospice nurse. P

  2. I bet your a great nurse, I remember you being very calm and collected...I'm a tad hyper so that might be bad. Maybe one day I can go back to school and take a shot at it. Ha! No pun intended.
