Smokes Galore! It’s been well over a year since last logging in…and once again, time seems to be the omnipresent enemy.
There’s so much I should be doing right now: reading and sorting journal articles for a work project. getting the house in order. carefully reading a work email. Going for a run. Planning Colette’s 2nd birthday.
2nd birthday you say? How did that happen?
At nearly 2 she’s becoming quite the fun little chica. “Mommy, COME!” “Sit on bottom!” “Oh shoot!”(oops…better than a choice 4 letter word I suppose). “Read books” (not sure if she’s asking or demanding…) Yesterday she was playing with my hair and pretending to wash my face. Today she was whisking crayons while I cooked dinner.
It’s been an interesting 33 months (9 months + 2 years). School while pregnant. Working on school work while in the hospital with the baby. Focusing on school work with a baby. Moving. Then finding work in a field and job that I never thought would ever materialize.
The job. It’s a steep learning curve: partly because I’m new to the role, partly because of the dynamics at the hospital. Despite going to school for the exact job I applied for, I never adequately prepared myself to work in a position that was so close-and in some ways so far away- from senior leadership. It’s frustrating and fascinating all at the same time.
More on all that another time….it’s laundry time.
