The ugly side

So I went to my pre-op appointment. I was happy to be there and nervous at the same time. I work in the medical field so I am use to the gore of surgery. But when they start talking, and telling YOU what to expect it's kind of scary and an ugly feeling all at the same time.

I will have a pain pump, I will have drains. I will have pain med's and nausea med's and bandaged like a mummy. I will have to cover my bed as not to ooze on it. Yeah sounds great huh.

But in the end a flat tummy, and some new boobies. Can't wait.

Can't wait to watch.

Some of my favorite shows are coming up this summer. Perfect timing. A little "Hug it out Bitch" and True Blood. My Vampire fix till the new Twilight movie comes out.

Am I the witch?

Some days I think my kids think I am the wicked witch. I know on some days when the kids are driving me up the wall. I may resemble her look and that thing she is doing with her hands.

I try to be a good mom but not everyday do I succeed. I get annoyed by the "mama mama mama" like a hundred times in a minute. I feel like a waiter with the "juice puleese" every 10 minutes. Or the latest " more or mas" that coming from the little one.

I do love being a mom though. When they are sleeping peacefully in their beds. Just kidding. I do love all parts of being a mom just not the vomit ones so much.

So even when I feel like the wicked witch. I do it with love and not evil.

Night at the Bar

Girls from the ER.
NO NO No I am not drunk just being bad.

Me and my bestie Angie. :)


Some pictures of our hiking trip. Yes we managed with all the kids. They had tons of fun. No one fell down the mountains, and we all survived.

We went to Green Valley Falls kind of close to Julian, California. Who knew they had small pools, and water falls.

Family Fun

This weekend was family fun weekend. We set out early in the morning. Us and 3 other families. It was fun we went on a train ride through Campo of all places. The kids loved it. We had a picnic. We went on a hike. The kids had so much fun.

Kill them with kindness

Are you a kill them with kindness kind of person? I must say I love how when people are trying to get a rise out of you, and fluster you. That you keep your cool say all the "right words" and piss off the other people.

I am talking in reference to one of the Dr's. One who asked me this weekend if I speak English and if I understood his instructions? Yeah in my head I am thinking yeah dip shit I do understand English. But what came out was the most PC nice words I could say. It pissed him off. I LOVED it. To which he promptly hung up on me only after saying Thank you.

I must say it takes a lot for me to blow up on you. At work I am trying to be the most professional nurse. Even at times when families and Dr's are pissing me off to no end. I keep my cool, and move along.

So this weekend was an exercise in keeping my cool. For which I did wonderfully.

On to other things. Things I must suggest make some decision about your health like whether or not you want "all" to be done. In my house if I am dead dead let me go. Don't put me on life support. Same goes for the hubby.

Things I ponder?

So when I talk about blogging to other people do they think I am crazy for blogging?

I talk about people like I know them just from reading their blogs.

I may have lost my mother of the year award when I whispered under my breath, little f-ers when I found my wedding ring and watch in a dump truck upstairs. I had been looking all day for it.

I have another appointment tomorrow with the plastic. The big finale before I decide which Dr.

I really want to see the musical Wicked. I read the book awhile back and it's coming to SD in August.

Why am I obsessed with a good deal. I am those freaky lady's who has coupons for almost everything.

Why are my kids pros at whining? I am tired of it.

Thoughts on 30.

I know it's just a number but I turned 30 on the 6th. I was kind of sad, like my twenties are ending. But whatever. I have been married all of my 20's with children. So it's not like I was partying my 20's away.

Do I feel different at 30 no not really. I actually feel better. I am more sure of myself, and what I want. I have always been opinionated but more so now. I am stubborn I know. I am more self confident. I can walk in to a room full of people, and not feel so timid. There is good things about turning 30 I guess.

My hubby says I am finally coming in to my own. I say he's right but I finally know what I want and need to do.

So I am sure this year will be a great year. I am happy got a good job, a great husband, great kids, and a roof over our heads. I am thankful.

The Good and the Bad of the ICU.

It was a very trying week for me at work. It made me question myself, and why I chose nursing in the first place. Don't get me wrong I love being a nurse but some days are pure hell on earth. I think God is testing me to see if I will crack.

I did crack a little. After coming out of one of my patients room, I must have looked like hell because the charge nurse asked me if I needed a hug. I did and yes I did accept said hug.

I wanted to cry I think a stress filled day mixed with hormones thanks Aunt Flo. I was a mess. I seriously said I don't want to come back tomorrow.

But I did come back. Yes you only get 2 patients in the ICU. But those patients are work. I literally spent hours trying to save a man's life, the next day same thing again but different patient.

I still wonder if the ICU will be my niche. I sure hope it is. I have so much more to learn. The ladies there are amazing though. They will back you up, and save your ass. They fight like family, but don't mess with anyone or else you will get the wrath of them all. Some of the nurses there have been there over 20 years. I can only hope I can get it together like them.

It is amazing though to visit with the families. You do what you can, and yet you try to keep your distance. But you don't want to seem uncaring. Those are people's mothers and fathers brothers and sisters you are taking care of. And yes I do care.

Buying my own

In honor of my birthday, I went shoe shopping a la the internet. I bought these for work.

Ya I know the clogs are funky, but of well they actually look really cute with scrubs, and being the funky one I am I bought some. Happy Birthday to me. Tomorrow.
