I so have baby fever. I'm ready for another one but my son is only 15 months. :p

That's about when I got pregnant with #2. The gap between their ages has been perfect. Their birthdays are about 3 weeks apart, just under two years between them.

If we could afford another baby I would get pregnant now.

How do you feel? Are you sore?

I can't believe you went back- but if it was the first day back after vacay, I do kind of get that.

I am all.the.sore. And I missed one day to recuperate and it wasn't enough.

I learned that when taking a BP, the diastolic is usually the fifth sound; this makes life so much easier for me, because I always think I hear a few more after the diastolic. You wouldn't think taking a BP would be that hard, but I'm having a difficult time with it. Practice practice practice.

I learned that, since school has started, I only average 3000-4000 steps a day :down: No wonder students gain weight! I'm going to try to add in a 1.5-4 mile walk daily (length of walk depending on workload).

I learned:

that according to NPR, my cats don't really love me. :)

I heard this and I refuse to believe this. Our cats totally love us.

I have one cat obsessed with me. So it can't be true. No way!

This week I learned what vasa previa is, why a succenturiate placenta is a bad thing, and that having more than a basic understanding of genetics is a very cool aspect of my knowledge.

That I am overwhelmed by the process of applying for my preceptorship. That this confusion may translate to having my placement be luck of the draw.

I also learned that there are plenty of scholarly articles discussing social skills and communication but there is a distinct lack of articles that lay out methods for learning or improving these skills.

I learned that being a patient sitter on the night shift is the worst job ever. Sitting in a chair. Watching a guy sleep. In the dark.

I learned that my boss is sooooooo much better than my previous boss that I no longer get that sinking feeling when I see her name in the 'From' field of the email.

I learned that one of my students in my academic job cannot come to clinicals due to "stomach poo poo problems". Seems legit...

I learned the medical term for sweaty underboob rash*, watched a presentation on it while eating dinner at a 4 star restaurant with my daughter (who is a WOCN) and about 20 other nurses. Just watching the servers watch us eat through this whole presentation was the high point of my week. One of them remarked on our way out "Those chicks on The View have no idea who they are messing with!"

*supramammary intertrigonous dermatitis - you're welcome

Cats are evil. They are only hoping you die so they can eat you. That's what that look in their eyes means. :yes:

Not all cats are evil. Some cats are like that, yes. But not all.

I learned this week that a fungus can infect your eye, nasal and sinus cavities and your upper maxilla. When you get it removed a huge portion of your face goes with it. ALL sucks.

I also learned that I do better with little people than adults.

I can't wait to graduate in May.
