In my other life…

So, for those of you who don’t know that much about me:

Besides being an avid artist, I am also a mom to six and a wife.  But my other passion is being a Licensed Nursing Assistant.  I have always loved doing this line of work, and am actually considering going to school for my LPN in the next year.

Anywhoooo…my blogging routine will change just a bit as I just got a new job!  HAPPY DANCE for me!  Instead of working in the facility I have been at for nearly 6 months, working very unpredictable nights, I will be working for a home health agency.  I can’t wait, as I think it will be a better suited situation for me.  Rather than trying to give 11-17 patients one on one time that they deserve, I will have 3 patients, maybe 4.  I can really become not only their caregiver, but their friend.  Someone additional that they can rely on for help.  And not just the usual.  I will actually have time to listen…which is how we learn the stories that matter.

I remember when I worked as an LNA 20 years ago, we got a new resident at our facility.  From talking to her, I found out that she was born 90 years before, in the very house that I lived in.  How cool is that!  She told me a lot of history about the area, things I never knew before.  Now I have those stories to add to my own memories of my childhood home.  What a precious gift!

Just had to toot my own horn about the new job and say Happy Wednesday!
