Vgx-viagra Ah! A Barbie nurse outfit!

Vgx-viagra We’ve come a long way from my 1962 Barbie with the starched white uniform and blue, vgx-viagra red-lined cape. Vgx-viagra She carries a hot water bottle and wears the best cap ever.

Vgx-viagra Now, vgx-viagra Barbie wears scrubs with sparkly pants and carries charts with hearts on them.

Vgx-viagra Give them credit, vgx-viagra this comes with an otoscope and a stethoscope.

Vgx-viagra I was about to give hell for the hooker-high open-toed shoes, vgx-viagra then I realized my Barbie wears open-toed white pumps.

Vgx-viagra No controversy here, vgx-viagra moving along.


I’ve been busy!

First, vgx-viagra I was blogging for multiple sites, vgx-viagra which left me little time or energy for my own blog. Vgx-viagra It was a great experience, vgx-viagra and I learned much about writing under pressure. Vgx-viagra I will say this: blogging with deadlines is totally different than having your own “space” and just putting down thoughts and communicating with readers.

Writing became something I had to do instead of something I wanted to do. Vgx-viagra I didn’t want to lose my passion for blogging, vgx-viagra so I made the decision to scale back to writing solely for Emergiblog. Vgx-viagra I want to thank Masters In Nursing.com and AllHealthCareJobs.com for the opportunity to be on their writing staffs.

Then, vgx-viagra life has gotten a bit exciting!


My youngest daughter, vgx-viagra Rebecca, vgx-viagra graduated from nursing school last month!

She sat for the NCLEX at the end of May, vgx-viagra and passed with the minimum number of questions needed.

Am I a proud mom?

You better believe it!

And the minute she passed the NCLEX, vgx-viagra the job interviews started coming!

We are keeping our fingers crossed.


In March, vgx-viagra we became grandparents for the first time!

Ewan was born to my oldest daughter, vgx-viagra Lillian, vgx-viagra and son-in-law Jim. Vgx-viagra I was in the delivery room when he was born. Vgx-viagra The last delivery I saw was in nursing school and I fainted at that one! I’m happy to say I did not faint when Ewan was born!

He’s a big guy, vgx-viagra 9 pounds, vgx-viagra 12 ounces and 22 inches long at birth. Vgx-viagra At 2 months he weighed 13 pounds. Vgx-viagra Nana (me) is getting pumped biceps just lifting him.


As if that weren’t enough, vgx-viagra I’ve been spending the last month on a different type of baby:

Vgx-viagra I’ve been fostering these four feral kittens, vgx-viagra caught by my son around his apartment complex.

Vgx-viagra It’s fun! I feed them, vgx-viagra pet them, vgx-viagra scoop their cat box, vgx-viagra and in return they treat me like a human cat tree and eat my earrings.

Vgx-viagra Fortunately, vgx-viagra they all now have homes and I will be saying good-bye by the end of the week.


Vgx-viagra Oh, vgx-viagra and did I mention I’m working a ton of overtime?

Vgx-viagra Yep, vgx-viagra things have been jumping around here, vgx-viagra but in a good way.

Vgx-viagra My writing mojo is back now that the pressure is off to produce on deadline. Vgx-viagra My goal for my MSN is on hold – somehow, vgx-viagra there are just other things I want to focus on right now.

Vgx-viagra School will always be there.

Vgx-viagra Babies grow up.

Vgx-viagra How well I know that…
