rockin my socks

I had such a great weekend... filled with homework, international cinema, dinner at Brick Oven, seeing a play (Tuesdays with Morey), more homework, and canoeing! It was a good little break from all of the craziness of the week - this semester is some hard stuff! But, I am LOVING pediatrics and OB. It's so fun to learn about how to care for little kids, moms, and babies. I didn't think I would enjoy it so much, but i definitely do :). This week I spent some time in Primary Children's Hospital in the RTU (rapid treatment unit) and in the PICU (pediatric intensive care unit). While it is heartbreaking to see kids fighting for their lives, it is very rewarding to be there helping them and cheering them on! I am so happy that I decided to be a nurse. Yes, it is draining. Yes, it is exhausting. Yes, it is difficult and demanding. But yes, it's worth it - I get to help people heal! Christ did that. Maybe it's another step in my journey to be a better disciple for Him. Yep, things are great! Brian and I hit 4 months this weekend... and for those of you who know me, that is a LONG TIME for me. So, congratulations to us!

school is nuts, but I like it

School is crazy and that is my excuse for not having updated this thing in a bit... it's been great getting back into nursing though and I am happy to report that I did not forget absolutely everything from before my mission like I thought I did... just most of it. But, it's coming back pretty quick, so that is a relief! I am studying pediatrics, mother/baby, and labor/delivery... 3 things I am SUPER interested in, so I am loving it! Unfortunately there is a lot of work... reading... essays.... reading... clinicals....more reading... studying... projects.... more reading... good thing I like the subject matter. I am also still enjoying my job at Jamba Juice and work the (very busy) lunch shift on Monday and Wednesday. I'm still finding time to have fun though! Brian and I went to Cache Valley 2 weekends ago to pick up the rest of my stuff and visit with grandma - she is soooo great! I love Cache Valley, it is absolutely beautiful and oh-so-peaceful. I'm going to go to bed so I can study lots again tomorrow, but I'll include some pics!
beautiful Newton!
