I love my job

I know most people can not say that but it is true. I love my job. I am at work now. I know Sat morning and I have to work. But I have my son with me, right now he is in the lab with the embryologist looking at embryos that are going to be transferred into a surrogate tomorrow morning. In a few minutes an egg donor will be here to aspirate eggs that will be fertilized and transferred into an intended parent next Thursday. What a lucky person to get to work somewhere that miracles take place. My son is not only learning about science but he is learning important life lessons like generosity, love, and above all else selflessness and hope. I can not imagine working anywhere else I love this place!

Wow it has been a long time

Okay so I know that noone is going to read this because my blog has not been updated in over a year but I am back and ready to post. I have been really busy in the past 12 months. I finished my first semester of nursing school with a B mind you. I opened my new office in June and love it. I am very busy but have missed blogging so much that I am going to try and add it back in. Can't wait to start catching up with everyone.

Wet Pants with a Message


Come with me to a third grade classroom.....
There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there
is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks
his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has
happened. It's never happened
before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the
of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as
he lives.
The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and
this prayer, "Dear God, this
is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."
He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her
eyes that says he has been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a
goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the
and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the
boy's lap.
The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself,
you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"
Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is
object of sympathy. The
teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his
pants dry out. All the
other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up arou nd his desk.
The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that
should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie.
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You've done enough, you
Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy
walks over to Susie and whispers,
"You did that on purpose, didn't you?"
Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."
May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.
Remember.....Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more
standing in your garage makes you a car.

I not only love the story --- I love this last quote!!

I only hope that in the coming years there will be many people with fish
bowls around me!!!

I am starting to think that maybe I am a little on the spoiled side. Right now I am driving down the road in my car typing a post on my blog using my laptop which is connected to the internet with an aircard. I know that lots of people have way more than me but sometimes I take for granted the nice things I do have. It is really easy to lose site of the how much you have. I am very lucky to have the things I have and I really appreciate them. not sure where this post was going I guess I was just thinking out loud.

I had a microbiology test on Thursday. The test was on three body systems and all the pathogens that can cause disease in those systems. I had very little time to study and was extremely worried about the test but I think that I did well. I guess I will have to wait and see on Tuesday when she tells us our scores.

My oldest DD dropped my other computer this week and I think did some real damage. The dvd player is not working and the screen looks crooked. Thank goodness it is still under warranty. I think I will take it to Circuit City tomorrow and hopefully they can fix it.

I sure hope tat everyone is having a great weekend and spending plenty of time with family and friends.

Rough Day

Wow I have had a rough day. I was late for work and that always makes for a rough start. One of our girls left early today because she was "sick". So instead of doing my weekly catch-up on my job(billing and coding) I spent my day doing her job, which put me a week behind now. Then we had a patient that was having a rough day so she came in the office and took out her rough day on me. She was rude and very toxic. The worst part I had already had a note on he chart to talk to her because her insurance is not paying her claims so I had to tell her that after she had just ripped my head off. NOT GOOD!
I finally get to school where on eof the girls in my class is a dental assistant and I tell her about this problem I have been having for a couple weeks now and she tells me that I to make an appt because the only way to fix my problem is to have my bridge removed and everything flushed and cleaned and take antibiotics. Oh yeah that is going to cost me. NOT GOOD!
So on my way home from school I stopped at the Olive Garden and had myself a wonderful piece of tarimisu and a nice coffee. I feel much better now and have decided that GOd never gives you more than you can handle and he was having great faith in my abilities today. So on that note I hope you are all having a wonderful evening and are enjoying your families like I am.

I have been in a weird mood the past couple days. I have had alot of thoughts about my life and where it is going. I worked really hard the past two years to get into a certain program, which I got an alternate seat in. The program started in Agust and I did not get a seat. I have since decided to go to school to become an ARNP. I am looking at about 4 years of school. I really need to do this to be able to provide for my kids.

Here is were the trying part comes in. My kids need me now just as much as they are going ot need me in hte future. I am a good mom and do more fr my kids even with work and school than most of the people I know. But somehow I feel like I am depriving my kids when I am at school. I am not sure why this is all coming about right now other than I am going to lots of different schools to see about the different program and maybe it is getting to me.

I am not looking to start a stay at home mom verses working mom debate because believe me I have done both and they are equally as hard and both have pros and cons. I guess I am just putting something in words that has been bouncing around my head for a few weeks. Not sure what I am looking for.
