WITL Day 2 & hopefully writing Day 3 along the way

Yesterday was a busy day.. I had school at 7 am, I left my house at 5:45, and sat in traffic for over an hour and a half... I hate DC traffic with a passion, and especially when the weather is crazy.. We had thunderstorms in the morning with very little drizzling, and a funeral procession (wtf I know!) but the traffic was intolerable! You'd think we had a blizzard again with the amount of traffic there was... Anyways, after I made it to school we watched a few videos on Labor & Deliver and massaging the fundus (the top of the uterus) and BUBBLE HER (assessing breasts, terus, bladder, bowels, lochia (discharge from vag deliveries), episiotomy, homan's sign, inforgot the second E... And respirations... ) haha! Had an hour to drive from school (which is 45 mins away from the hospital) to the hospital and grab lunch along the way.. Sat in traffic for about 30 minutes before it cleared up... Went to the hospital and saw the new L&D suites. I can't wait! So exciting!! After school and hospital and everything else, I went to pick jj up, went to the park, called FedEx about my new iPad, and made broccoli cheddar soup for dinner. Tryin to figure out how to upload my pictures directly from my phone without having to send them to my email lol.. Ah well.. Had Zumba at 8:30pm, and it truly KILLED me last night. I felt it in my calls, my abs, my neck!... Very nice workout though! Came home, did some homework and took a shower and went to bed.. Today (Day 3) I woke up at 6, to JJ sneezing, coughing and crying... He has a bit of a fever, which SUCKS because that means he got the cold I was hoping not to pass onto him... My cold turned into pneumonia, a week of antibiotics and 6 boxes of tissues later, my cough is still there. And now JJ is presenting the same symptoms.. :( Ahh I just realized the time! I wrote for about 40 minutes. Lol going to get JJ ready now.. Talk to you soon!


  1. I hate traffic! I would have lost it lol. I got Zoe sick as well with me being sick, I was hoping I wouldnt, but I did. and now that the pneumonia is gone from my chest, I am now getting a cold back from zoe! go figure. Hope today is fun and jj feels better soon :)

  2. Well there's the CON if I move lol - I hate traffic!

    L&D sounds exciting!!! I'm jealous!

  3. Gotta say the L&D talk just kinda made me nauseous.....and that is exactly why I would never be able to be a nurse LOL
