Why a blog? It sounded like a good idea and I’m less interested in posting on Facebook/Twitter and more focused on reading everyone else’s posts. I desire a way to express myself and “think out loud” if you will… Or maybe it’s just the fact that I turn 30 this year.
I find myself in that age/experience crunch where I am no longer the youngest person in the operating room but not the oldest and most respected nurse anesthetist either. It feels like a recipe that is missing one ingredient that would just put it over the top – you know what I’m talking about – but you can’t ever seem to quite figure it out. I love nursing and anesthesia, it is challenging, interesting and I get to help patients. The job comes with great time off and the hours are good – no more overnight call! And I must say, after a year and a half, I still don’t miss getting a phone call at 2:50 am asking me for an epidural.
Kristi and I have been regularly attending the same church, Sunday school class (can you still call it that when everyone is almost thirty and older?), and small group for over a year. The Faithmates class at church has been great. I’ve been volunteering at our church’s community clinic; it’s a good change of pace.
As for my spare time, I’ve traded in the golf clubs (technically they are in the garage just unused) for charcoal and a “few” grills. Kristi would probably say it’s more than a few, but that is for another day…
