A Lateral Move

I’ve decided to create a further separation between my home life and work by dividing my working-mommy/family posts and my work itself into separate blogs. I hope those joining me for the more medical aspectsor just those curious will follow me here

Following a nerve-wracking dream of starting an NP blog has renewed my writing joi de vive and I have many, many posts lined up for both. There was always something making me feel like I didn’t have enough to contribute to an entire NP blog but with everything going on in life and the world lately I’ve just decided that I don’t care and I have to try! Life is short. I don’t like to make promises but I hope to publish at least weekly. Summer is a little slower at work and therefore more feasible! Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to post more! 


Excuses, Excuses….

I apologize for my absence, life keeps getting in the way. Work, everyday things and the recent loss of my grandmother have kinda shifted my life into this deep confusing rut. My whole family feels a little like planets flying out of orbit after the loss of their sun. My grandmother was the matriarch of a very large family. I have 31 1st cousins to put it in perspective. 

So on top of that emotional turmoil, I’m trying to decide if I want to find a different job. I love my patients, coworkers and office staff but the administration at our hospital is…well let’s just say it’s one of those places where if you do a great job they want you to do more for less and make empty promises. I could go on but I don’t see the point in troubling you with my work issues and find it hard at this point in time to stay professional.

On the positive note, I’m extremely looking forward to our family’s vacation to Ireland in less than two weeks. A little nervous about little one flying for the first time but I think she will do well. I’ve been putting together a travel bag for her for some time now.  I will let you know what worked well and what I would do differently if I had the chance as we progress. 

I promise to try to be more faithful again!
