Freedom & Sleeping Boys

I'm just hanging out at home today having an unexpected reprieve from work. Apparently not enough laboring ladies today. It's always kind of sad how excited I get when the phone rings at 6 AM on the day I am scheduled to work.
I see my hospital unit on the front of my cell phone and my heart starts to pound.


"Hi Amanda? We don't need you today, do you want to be on call?"


The day stretches ahead of me with possibilities.

Here's what we did: unpacked from being gone for two weeks, did six loads of laundry (washed, dried, folded AND put away!), went through our mail inbox pile (ginormous), cleaned the main living room, did the dishes, fed Bubbalu, caught up on bills, went through receipts and have much more planned.

Bubbalu is currently napping and Lance fell asleep on the couch after a lovely lunch of leftovers.

Mama finished a book during lunch, is catching up on the blog, and will go out for a run soon.

Life is good.



  1. You have an AWESOME job, though! I had two of the most amazing OB nurses during both of my labors- The first actually came to visit when I was in labor with my second!

    So I guess I'd like to say thank you for doing what you do!!

    And thank God for days off!!

  2. I agree with Lindsey - what a totally cool job! And how wonderful that you enjoy it so much - being eager for the phone to ring at 6 am? That's dedication!
