A Girl’s Gotta Try

December 19, 2009

I know I haven’t updated most of this week, and lame as this is I am writing now to tell you about how my blog/Twitter friend Ashley is giving away a laptop on her review blog. I would really, really like to win this computer. Not for myself, because once I went Mac I don’t think I can go back. But for my husband, because his laptop causes him to curse at least once a night, if he can even bring himself to use it. I had to use his computer myself when my hard drive crashed awhile ago, and I don’t know how he puts up with it. Sadly, a new computer is not in the budget for either…

#87: Complete NaBloPoMo

November 30, 2009

Today is the last day of November, and the last of my daily posts. I’ll be honest; there were times that it was a strain. I went through a lull in motivation about halfway through, but then I learned to plan ahead a little bit and came in strong for the finish. I challenged myself to be creative, to just write something even if it wasn’t great, and I did it. As cliche as it sounds, I do have a sense of satisfaction in completing this task. Posting every day isn’t something that is a priority for me to continue, but I have gotten into the habit and I think I’ll be a lot more frequent than I used to…

My First Mobile Post

November 20, 2009

This is my very first time posting from my iPhone. I’m all grown up! Really though, I don’t like mobile blogging much, but today it’s about all I have the energy for. Currently I am on the train in the medical center headed to my car. I have been at work for approximately 13 hours and it’ll be another hour before I’m home. When I get there, I want to spend time with my husband and not in front of the computer. Today was a hard day because we were short staffed. My mentor told me that today was one of her worst days in her entire career, which is 43 years. A rounding nurse practitioner told me, “You guys…

Friday Mash-Up

November 13, 2009

Some randomness for your reading pleasure: *** One of my very best friends, Megan, is somewhat new to blogging. Well, the truth is that she blogged sporadically for awhile, and then stopped updating. So I took her off my list of links, which apparently offended motivated her. After some hearty encouragement on my part, she took it up again. She has assured me that she will be updating frequently, and she is a woman of her word. Basically what I’m trying to say is that YOU SHOULD BE READING IT. I don’t encourage just anyone to blog. Megan is a better writer than I’ll ever be; at once witty, inspiring, thought-provoking, and hilarious. She and her husband are currently living…

This Is The Way We Were

November 1, 2009

“Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?–every, every minute?” –Emily from “Our Town” In life there are a lot of big things that happen–for example, when we moved out of the city when I was 10, when I went away to college, when I traveled to Europe, when I became a nurse, when I got married–and those are the things that we take pictures of, that we write about, that we remember. But those aren’t the things that really make up our lives. A week ago my husband and I went to see the play “Our Town”, and quite honestly I can’t get it out of my head. There’s no big premise to it, no crazy plots or…
