It's been a busy week..

I started back at the hospital this week.  I really never realized just how much I missed birthing babies until I got back there.  It felt so good to slip into those faded teal scrubs..complete with stretched out waistbands and permanent stains.  It was a bit bittersweet though too...for a couple reasons.  I truly do miss my friends at my old job.  And when I left the hospital it was to move to California.  I had so much excitement and hope..and truly thought my life with the man I'd loved for most of my life was finally beginning.  I know I've said it before...and I'm sure I'll say it again.  I never imagined this is where I would be in my life right now.  Yet I love my life...as the saying goes...If you want to hear God laugh...tell him your plans!!!

I think my house is finally all decorated.  I spent the day with my Grandma, Mom, Sister and Nephews baking cookies.  It's always so much more fun with a whole bunch of people together doing it.  Kaden decided to spend the night there.  I have to admit...I miss the little guy...he's been away all weekend! 

As we were finishing up the cookies, my brother in law made us an amazing dinner.  Steak on the grill, salmon, roasted fresh asparagus, corn, and fried potatoes...can you say yum. 

When I walked into my sisters house...she showed me the cabinet her hubby made for her...two in fact.  I hugged one..it was so beautiful...he made it out of an old window.  I sure hope she has my name for Christmas!!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday friends. 


  1. Morning Friend
    God is truly amazing.He sure knows the paths He has for us. And funny even though sometimes we don;t like them or not sure about them. They all work out in His own timing. Thank you for all your Christmas Sharing. I think you are set to NOreply comments and I am not able to comment you back.
    Blessings Friend


  2. It's perfectly o.k. to hug furniture:) I am happy for you to be able to be a nurse again at the hospital. Many of my friends are nurses there and they seem to really love their jobs. Wish we had family around for the holidays. It would make everything so much better. p.s. We love Salmon here. My girls gobble it all up, but they don't like normal things like mac 'n' cheese or ravioli. Hu......

  3. So glad to hear that you are enoying your "new" / old job, what a delight it must be to help bring newborns into the world!

    Ah, yes, one just never can tell where their life may lead...just let God be your guide and you'll be just fine..

    Hugs & Happiness,

  4. What a fun day you had! glad you are where you love, in Labor and Delivery. We never know where life is going to take us> I have learned something good comes out of all the turmoil and stresses we have to endure. Remember He says He knows the plans He has for us.

  5. Isn't it funny how things turn out, though? You think your all set and living the American Dream, then it's gone in a flash. I never expected to become a widow at the age of 30.
    I never expected to meet someone new and have another child. I never expected this relationship to start failing after 11 yrs. Lol! God, sure has gave me more than my share. But I keep trucking along...thinking one day things will turn around for me! One Day at a time!
    Glad you get to work with babies again. That must be sooo rewarding to bring a new life into this world.
    I sooo enjoy working with the elderly (some of them revert back to being children) but after being a c.n.a for 20+ yrs. It must be my calling, Lol!
    Blessings my friend!
