A Day Off
Monday, September 09, 2019      3 comments

I worked seven days in a row this week. I love my job. I love my residents but I needed today badly. I needed some time just to relax. Go for a walk. Stop and smell the flowers (literally). I needed to take an afternoon nap. Listen to 80's mu... Read more

So I had a scare last month. I tested my blood sugar one morning and it was 487. Yikes! Since a healthy range is 80 to 120, I knew it was time I did something drastic. I'm kind of hit and miss with my blood sugar testing anyway. I'm suppose... Read more

I know I don't blog as much as I should. I used to love to write. Poetry. Short stories. Journal about my thoughts and my day. Now it feels like pulling teeth. Maybe I got it all out of my system when I was younger. Maybe motherhood sapped ... Read more
