friday brain dump

Happy Friday! Can I just say how incredibly happy I am to see this day finally arrive? This week has kicked my rear like no other, so I am especially excited to see the weekend finally here.

1. Last weekend we took a little road trip to our home away from home, Greenville, NC. We spend a lot of time there in the fall with football games, but each spring we try to go catch a baseball game on campus. We had a great weekend hanging out with my sister and brother in law, enjoying beautiful weather, and of course, cheering on the Pirates.

2. This week I got to participate in my first Muffins with Mommy at Landon’s preschool. I took him to school that morning, enjoyed a few minutes of juice and muffins, and was showered with some of the sweetest gifts that he had been working on that week. I am beyond thankful that I work in a job is flexible and allows me to be there for things like this. I will treasure these memories, and gifts forever.

3. Temperatures finally warmed up for good this week, which means it was time to bring out the water table! Landon loves water and is already asking when he can go swimming, so hopefully the water table will keep him happy until the pool opens at the end of the month.

4. On the topic of Landon, I’m pretty sure we’ve entered that beautiful “terrible two” territory that everyone talks about. Holy Cannoli. That’s all I have to say. Oh, and don’t be surprised if you see him standing on the corner with a sign that reads “free to good home.” Kidding, of course.

5. This week is not only teacher appreciation week, but nurse’s week! I appreciate our teachers more than anything, but I feel like nurses are definitely a profession that doesn’t get enough credit for the work that we do. I wear the hat of a pharmacist, social worker, dietician, counselor, health insurance person, sometimes of a doctor because we often make suggestions as to what needs to be done for a patient, patient advocate, etc. Its tough. But I love every minute of it. My patient’s have taught me so much and truly changed me as a person. I am so proud to be an oncology nurse.
