Me Working

This is an aspect of my life I don't share too much about on my blog --- my work life. Yeah, I work outside the home here and there. I'm a nurse approximately one weekend a month. My specialty is in the mother/baby department, passing out lots of pain meds and Sprite to sore ladies who have just given birth. It's fun.

In the course of my career I have "delivered" one baby, encountered a patient who wore 7 bras all at the same time {so incredibly strange, I know}, and served Sprite to thousands upon thousands of women.  I had NO clue how much the general population LOVES Sprite until I became a nurse.

Anyhoo, a few things about this picture.
1. I took it on my break to send to Stephen Grande. He always sends me phone photos with captions of what the kids are doing at home. So I sent him this one of me. I crack myself up sometimes.
2. I am my father. Just 30 years younger and female.
3. The particular day I took this photo, I dropped my entire cup of to-go mug coffee on the floor as I was clocking in. I hadn't even taken a sip. The whole incident really hurt my feelings.

Major party foul.
More specifically, major work foul.

  2. It's scary to think you are you are a female version of Doc, but I can see what you mean! And sorry about the coffee. That is a major tragedy in my world.

  4. OH, I hope you're my nurse come March. I love Jackson Hospital. Their nurses are the BEST. ;)

  5. You are your father. I dropped my coffee at the hospital the other day and incredibly the cup landed completely upright. The cup was still about 1/3 full of drinkable coffee. The rest had exploded in about a 6 foot circle all around it. I felt skillful and clumsy at the same time.

  6. That coffee story really bummed me out. I wish you could have been my sprite nurse!

  7. awwww, I have a soft spot for nurses like you! My sis was a labor and delivery nurse for years - now she's in administration, but she was sure with me for both of my births and she made SUCH a difference. You're right, Sprite is popular beyond belief.
