The Coldest Day of Finley's Life

It was a record breaker in Brunswick today! Way too cold to be out, kind of, at least on Coastal Georgia terms. Finley and I were up and about around 6:30 and ready to take on the day, but it was so cold we went back to sleep (no clinical today). She's turned into the sleeping buddy I've always looked for! No offense to Daddy J. He's just a go-getter and is out of bed way too early even when there's no job or chore the to-do list. I like to get my Zs. I think I get it from dad. We like to sleep until thirty minutes before the time clock starts the day. . .but God blessed us with spouses that know how to get our rear ends out of bed in the morning! I don't know if my mom knows what snooze is. I know Miss Judy doesn't. Seven-thirty is late for her. Wow. So our day started a little later. I think we're entitled though. We don't get snow days down here. We do get hurricane days, but those are spent boarding up and evacuating, not chillun' in front of the fire.
Now that I've justified a delay in studying I've got make up for a few missed hours. This weekend on Iron Nurse America--Battle Cardiology. I thought I could get the med-surg reading done this afternoon. Yeah right. It's all about reading "strips". Going to have to call on Big Daddy for help. Right now all those little EKG lines look mostly alike.

Getting it together

I've been in school a week and it hasn't been so bad. It's challenging and we're still trying to figure out a way to optimize study time at night, but God's revealing His plan. I think our biggest challenge for the semester will be getting Finley to sleep in her crib. I've got to call Dr. Aljabi and see when it's safe to start the process. We've started putting her in the crib to get her used to the idea. She likes it for twenty to thirty minutes. She is lovin' her bouncy chair and the peanutshell. Thank goodness for Melanie Stilli's kind gift--LOVE the peanutshell!
I feel like there is so much more to blog about. I have a spare moment and my mind is blank. I guess the good stuff is crowded out by respiratory and cardiac module info.
