Exhausted … But – you know, in a good way … (AKA WWU)

ER-nurse-jugglingThe way that a third-shift nurse, mom, MAGICIAN feels when she crosses that marathon work-tour finish line with all pieces successfully juggled/managed.  Sure … at the final 20 minute push-point, it meant maintaining a 1:1 behavior-medicine watch, while acclimating a new team member, triage-assessing/documenting on our next cardiac patient AND greeting/briefing day shift staff … So, yeah – would you like fries with that???

Meanwhile, at the homestead: Isabella and pups are doing great (as are all four-legged family); Little Sis is getting over her bubonic plague [read: cruddy, germy bronchitis]; and we’re enduring Michigan’s ice-age summer … Was that a snowflake I just saw???

I also managed to do a bit more beading …

And, I MAY have made a few de-stressing internet purchases … Doh!  More to come once I hibernate for a few days hours!

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
