At some point, some girl took my blog over. She said she would not hire nursing. She is a sneaky one, because she later snuck on, and said she would do it, but it most likely wouldn't work out, as she couldn't even handle having someone on the outside of her home completing work.

Poor girl. She was so close minded, and did not stop to think that maybe, just maybe, it could all work out!

OK, it was me!

I, once again, have no idea who the heck I am. And, once again, it is one of the most refreshing feelings in the world!

Nursing has been life-saving to me. You may possibly think that is an extreme statement, but it's true. Having Michelle has allowed me to be free. Because of her, I am able to run errands, go to lunch with a friend, indulge in my new, awful pastime of shopping, and just plain have somewhat of a life.

Lately, I have been without nursing for a number of days. I can honestly say, I have no idea how I did it on my own for as long as I did!!!  Now, I could never imagine my life without this sort of help.

With help, I am no longer confined to the house, doing the same, exact thing day in, and day out. I am allowed some variety, and I appreciate it every second of the day.

When I am home, I am able to do other things, like cook for Aviana, do laundry, clean up the house, think about what to make for dinner, complete Aviana's reading program materials (which is extremely time consuming), and even take an online photography class.

I will be forever thankful to Michelle for all of the help she has provided. I also must not forget the countless hours of comic relief =)

Michelle is 9 weeks away from having a baby. For this reason, I had to start looking for another nurse.

At first, I tried my best to ignore her baby belly ;o)  It was easy at first, but in the last couple months, it became virtually impossible!

I then decided it was time to start acting like a mature adult, so I began sticking my fingers in my ears, closing my eyes, and screaming at the top of my lungs  LA, LA, LA, LA, LA.  All this while whipping my head frantically from side to side!

I thought it impossible to find another....

Once again, I had no idea....


  1. I'm so glad you're getting some 'me' time in there. We all need that - especially when sugar hits the fan.

    So we do we get to see some new pictures? :)

  2. ....u'mmm so how's that working for you?

    'la-la-la-la' ......be careful whipping your head too & fro is liabel to cause a case of whiplash.....personally i prefer to mix the 'la-la' song with a few choice raspberries here & there :)

    <3 U my friend!!!

  3. I do that, too. But I was always made to believe it was NOT a mature, adult thing to do. Now I can let everyone know they were wrong! Thanks for the validation, cuz!

    You will find another nurse! Maybe not as perfect as Michelle, but you WILL find one!
