day in the life // may 2014

May 29, 2014

Last week I decided it was time for another day in the life. I recorded everything on Instagram, but here it is again all together. 5:37 am : the day begins with coffee. Liam has been awake for half an hour already so I just brought him out with me. 5:45 am : Meredith woke up crying asking to hold me. Now I have both of them on my lap. It’s going to be a sub-par Bible study this morning.  6:04 am : working on a God-centered mindset in the midst of distraction. 6:24 am : morning routine includes bottle prep. I have a helper for everything. 7:10 am : conquered the getting dressed meltdown and are headed out the…

day in the life of an infusion nurse

December 16, 2013

I have another post about my job as a chemo infusion nurse for you! This one is a little less serious, as I wanted to give some detail about what my job actually involves. This might seem way too detailed, but I assure you I am summarizing vast amounts of activity here and only hitting the high points! It’s a busy place. The following took place on a Monday, and it actually was one of my less busy days. One of our infusion suites. 7:30 // I arrive and Patient #1 is there, to get the chemo regimen ABVD. I access her port and draw labs. We were not sent new orders from the doctor’s office, so I start making…

day in the life // april 2013

May 7, 2013

This is part of Ali Edwards’ monthly day in the life project. In 2013 I am documenting a day at the end of each month and including it as an insert in my Project Life album. This month was done on Tuesday, April 30. *** 4:30am – My alarm goes off. Meredith nurses for awhile and I hit snooze three times. 5:00am – Out of bed! I let the dogs out and tidy up in the kitchen. I hear Meredith wailing from down the hall so I go nurse her again but she is awake. This means I won’t be able to do my morning Bible study, so I go ahead and get us dressed, put on makeup, stuff some…

day in the life // march 2013

April 4, 2013

I have decided to participate along with Ali Edwards’ monthly day in the life project. I wasn’t prepared to start at the beginning of the year but I think I can pull it off once a month from here on out. It happens during the last week of the month, usually the last day, but since in March that day was Easter Sunday I chose to document Friday the 29th, which I had off work. So this is a fairly typical weekend-ish day for me. I’ll be including these photos as an insert in my Project Life as well as the form I used to journal on. 4:30am – My alarm went off as usual for a weekday, but since…

day in the life // girls’ day off

November 16, 2012

This year I decided that it’s good for my health and sanity to take a random day off work every month or so. Sometimes I need those days to be “me” days where I still put Meredith in daycare and have some time to myself. But other times I want some extra time with her, and that’s what I did yesterday. 7:00 a.m. / we’re up and David’s up and we see him off to work shortly. 8:00 a.m. / Meredith still has a cough and congestion so before we do anything else we take a steamy shower/bath. Her favorite thing is to fill a cup up with running water and dump it out over and over. 8:30 a.m. /…
