A weekend but not a day off {wiws}

The price we pay for working at the hospital this month. When I drove to work during Christmas Day or thanksgiving or day after thanksgiving or any other holiday in between -- my mantra was: somebody has to take care of the sick kids. It's a holiday but the hospital doesn't have vacations. Somebody has to work today. It's me and it's ok.

It's not a holiday weekend but it's my call weekend. Tied to my pager since Friday 4pm. Fri night was an awesome night call. I might have tossed and turned but I got no pages from 11p to 530a.
Sat night was a different story.
Beeped at 11p
1a
4:30a
6a

And for a pregnant lady who couldn't find a sweet spot to sleep, it's a double whammy. I was up for an hour after the 1:30a page. I just couldn't find a comfy position to sleep. boo.

Anyway I'm still a lucky gal. I got off at a decent time both days after seeing kids in the morning. I had lunch with my family. And best of all, I got no calls during Mass!








Ootd deets:
Pregnant Mama: gap maternity dress circa pregnancy with D1
Wedges by kork ease

D1: old navy polo, gap shorts




Look at them! A pose for show!
Isabel: dress from Lola Lisa {consignment store here in Indy}

Mass behaviors:
D1: A {no snacks during Mass for this boy!}
D2: D {Derrick gave her this grade} she was taken to the back of the church twice due to tantrums. and she did throw the pager on my face! Ouch
D3: pretty quiet in the womb

And for this Sunday:
Question posed by our priest: who do you say Jesus is? What does your life say about him?

Something for us to ponder. And be more aware this coming week, huh?!

  1. It always feels like a blessing to make it through Mass on-call without being paged. I always get distracted, though, worrying that a page will come or fretting that my pager might broken if I don't hear anything.

    Still, I'm glad you made it through Mass sans pages.

    You have a beautiful family!
