Last day at Lake before school starts

Well we went to Lake Eufaula one last time before school started this year.  Our boat has been working wonderful this summer which has been nice. The Pfister girls not only went on the tubes but all mastered the knee board!

Nurse Nancy No More

It has happened.  I quit.  It was time.  I have worked as a nurse for 36 years, off and on, all part-time, usually only one or two days a week.  This last job at Wallace College lasted 16 years as a Clinical Nursing Instructor.  In the hospital I mainly made sure the students did a good job taking care of all their patients, giving the right medications, doing procedures right like changing dressings, iv medications, injections, putting in catheters, ng tubes, etc. Fun stuff like that.  I mainly worked on Orthopedics, Pediatrics and Labor/Delivery, since those were my specialties. Pediatrics was mainly where I worked before coming to Wallace. Out at the school I checked off students to make sure they could do the procedures on the mannequins before attempting them on the living ones : ) I had quite a few laughs doing this. It was a great job.

How does the saying go "I'm free. I'm free at last."
