Nurse Kristie

Well after today, I definitely know I do NOT have what it takes to be a nurse...I have too many phobias! My mom had cataract surgery today as an out patient and I was her "taxi"...the reverse of my younger days when she was my taxi...interesting how that happens. Anyway I almost got sick when they took the IV out and blood went gushing all over...yes...I am not a blood or needle person! Bless those who can do this job!

I get to discuss children books tomorrow with other media specialists! We are compiling questions for a Readers Rally for next year. It was interesting also that I received an email from ALA (American Library Association) where there was a podcast with the Director of the Intellectual Freedom Office. She had great points and I always wondered how they get the top 10 challenged books for the year...well come to find out that it is a "voluntary" poll that teachers/librarians send them when they know of one. She said that they probably get only 1 out of 4 books that get challenged for their poll....interesting....well for media specialists...maybe not nurses...heehee.
Here are the books that I had to read:


  1. See you later today! I'm looking forward to a day with media specialist friends and lots of children's books.

  2. I didn't know your mom was going to have surgery. Tell her I'll be thinking about her.

    I can empathize with the "not me, I'm not a nurse!" feeling. Since DH has been down with his knee, I've had to grit my teeth (a lot!) at some of the things he's asked me to do. The dr. drained it yesterday and it was GROSS!

    Sounds like you'll have a "fun" workday tomorrow...just like me...I have fun at work everyday!

  4. Do I need to come pick you up on my way to give blood on Monday? Hope your mom is doing better. I love the quilt.
