One more work night or not?

So I only have to make it through one more 12 hour shift or maybe not depending on if they will let me have the call off. As things stood this morning there would be no call offs tonight but we will see what will happens. I am hoping to get called off all night so that I can get all of our stuff mostly packed. If not I am going to sacrifice some sleep tomorrow so that I can get that done and sleep all night tomorrow night. I am sure that I won't have a problem going to sleep tomorrow night either way. I think that my milk supply will double while I am on vacation since I will be so relaxed. I hope too that Kendra feels my relaxation and will eat all that milk! LOL. I am sure that things will work out great. I am a bit worried about the plane ride with the altitude changes with her. I will have lots of things for her to suck on to help with those changes. I even got a little bit of formula from work in case she needs to have a bottle on the plane and won't nurse but I am sure that if she isn't going to nurse that she will enjoy her pacifier and be okay. Well I am going to try to get her to go back to sleep for a little while for me. Wish me luck since she has only slept for an hour and half for me this morning. Post more soon.

4 days...

There are only 4 more days till Florida! I am so thrilled I just can't wait! It will be good times hanging with the family. I am really just looking forward to getting away from work. There are so many changes going on that I am not sure if I am coming or going or even if they will ever give me time on the floor. I am really waiting to see what will happen with one of the girls I work with to see what they are going to do with me for sure. I guess that I will either find out more when I see my charge nurse that does our schedule or I see what is currently my position posted since I would be taking her position. I think that would be the best plan to for me to train someone at the desk and then train to work the floor but we will see what will happen. So anyways back to the trip.... I just can't wait. I am so looking forward to warm weather and a break. I will miss Ephriam terribly but it will also be a good break for me and a time for Chris and Ephriam to bond together. I am hoping that Kendra and I can get them something nice while we are there. I hope that he enjoys his postcard that Kendra sends to him. I am sure that he will. Well I need to get some rest since I worked last night and have to work the next 2 nights at work before I am on Vacation!!!! Hope to post again before I go.

The Answer Is....

Okay so I got to talk to my boss about things and learning how to run the floor. She said that I can start anytime. She said that it won't take me long to learn how to do it. It will not affect my schedule in any way. I will still be able to work the same days. I wish that I would have known this last night since we had 2 deliveries and I could have gone and watched them set up the delivery tables but oh well. I am hoping to work with Helena and it be slow enough that I can help her stock some rooms or something like that so long as they don't call me off. I am looking forward most though to going to Florida in 11 days! Then I can come back and be refreshed and ready to work hard again. Well I need to get going so that I can get my kids down for naps and then get myself down for a nap. Later. [Killer Fun]

Finding Out

Tonight I should find out exactly what they are going to do with me and my job. I am hoping that I can still have weekends off because I really enjoy getting to be with my family all together. Not to mention that we have things planned for several weekends coming up. I am a bit anxious to get off the desk and work the floor some. I know that it isn't going to be always so glorious but I do some of the aide work now and I like getting up and being on the floor. I am not so sure that I am ready to train Theresa to do birth certificates but that is okay. Well I need to go a lay down since I will be going into work tonight. Looking forward to post more tomorrow about the job. Trying to remember Philippians 4:6 and 7 but not have too much luck with the anxious part.

Playing Catch Up

Okay is has been a few weeks since I have updated this blog so here is a run down of what has been going on here. Last week was pretty uneventful. I worked, played with the kids, did what little house work I could. We did go to breastfeeding group on Thursday to hang out with some of our friends. Last weekend was a little busy for us but yet still kinda slow. We went shopping for things for somethings that we will be needing the next few weekends. We moved lil' miss Kendra up to a convertable carseat. She is has a lot more room to stretch her little legs out. I was also able to pick up some things for my sister-in-law's baby shower. After our shopping trip we brought the kids back home for nap time and then we went out to dinner with Chris parents. Sunday was our usual marathon. We didn't check our messages after church and the kids were suppose to go to see their Aunt and Uncle but their Uncle was sick so they went to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

This week has been a bit strange. I worked Monday night and got called off on Tuesday which was very nice because it was almost 80 degrees out. I was loving the sunshine and having the house open. On Wed. night we had dinner at Chris' parents house like usual. Then on Thursday morning at 4 am I went into work to count linens on the floor since we have linens all over on the unit. We had to count so many things. We had something like 526 wash clothes over 400 sheets ect. It was too much. I was glad that the floor was slow and that the nurses helped out. I came home to K.C. screaming her head off. She had been up basically since about 3 am and didn't go back to sleep till after 7. Then she got up at 10:30 with Ephriam and then only took an hour nap in the afternoon and she fussed the whole rest of the day. She really cried when I would leave the room. She just wanted me to hold her and that was fine till I had to get ready for work. I needed to take a shower so she had to play with Daddy who was not much of an entertainer on his 3 hours of sleep. I by this time was ready to go into work. I worked my usual 12 hours and was on my way home when I ran into my 2nd in command boss and she informed me that I will be learning to run the floor as an OB Tech. This doesn't however entail me learning to scrub for C-Sections. The one girl that I usually work with who does them is on light duty do to a fall so she will be trained to do birth certificates. They are training our one and only LPN to scrub in her place since they don't have to pay for her to go to school. It doesn't matter much to me because I am planning on going back to school in the fall of '08 to finish up my RN. Once that is done they are going to want to train me then I am sure. We will see how it all pans out. So anyways Tonight we are hanging out at home but tomorrow is another big day for us. We are going to have family pictures done then finish up our shopping for the next couple of weeks. Sunday again is our usual madness. So that is it on my front for now. Now to catch you up on the kids on Walker Family Life.

Kendra's Baptism

This past Sunday we had K.C. baptized. She did so good with all the activity in the house. She really didn't want to sleep but ended up crashing a few times. The kids slept till 11 this morning. It was really great to see all of my family that came. I really wish that we could have seen more of them and spent more time with them but I am very thankful for the time I do get with them. I am most looking forward to all the time that we will get to spend with them when K.C. and I go to Florida at the end of the month. Sunday was a busy day though with the baptism the party and then youth group. Luckily we already had youth group planned and we just had to show up. Well for now it is nap time with the kids so time to rest with them. Looking forward to having a slow night at work so that maybe I can post again tonight.
