A return to baseline

I have spent the last two days at a nursing conference on electronic fetal monitoring.

It has been awesome.

Oh geeky bliss.

There were graphs. Flowcharts. Citations. The latest in nursing research and evidence based practice.

My inner nerd was just eating it up.

Never mind the fact that it was two whole days where I got to sit in a chair, drink tea, and eat catered lunches.

But, all good things must come to an end.

Goodbye sitting, catered lunches, and intellectual stimulation - hello ten-day rainy stretch, pilfering goldfish from the snack bag and Dora.

We're not throwing in the towel yet though, we are acting like it's spring - even though mother nature seems to think spring = 50 degrees and drizzle.

Nature walk.

And nothing says spring like a trip to the local creamery, yes?

Sharing is overrated.

While we're waiting for sunny days to head our way again, we'll be busy puddle splashing and digging through the arts and crafts bin.

What have you been up to?


  1. glad you are back ..i missed the news and the pics..glad you got away and acted like a grown up must have enjoyed it..hope you learned alot

  2. I have an inner nerd, too! Hubby is getting his MBA in financial management and let me look at a test he recently took for a class. Being the uber-dork that I am, I took the test for fun. I think I have an addiction to test-taking.

    I can't believe you spent a whole two days with graphs and flowcharts- LUCKY!! And the grown-up conversations are a nice bonus, huh? :)
