RIP Buick Century

17 senior year
school and career prep
late night Mei*jer runs 
howling at the moon
flat tires and mailbox hitting
driving miss daisy
off to Marquette
over the bridge, pay the toll
back and forth
Holland, the beach
let's all go to the buffet
pick up friends from the train and plane
the mall 
drive the kid
move back and forth back and forth
michigan's adventure 
adventures to nowhere special
running errands
classes and jobs
cracked windshield
dead batteries
don't forget to change the oil
packed to the brim 
no room for anyone
move to the city
Hit at an intersection
stuff with babies, 3 in a row
midwife conferences with bumper sticker souvenirs  
pack and pack up to the brim
storage unit for 3 weeks 
empty out at new apartment
mechanics say the end is near
adios old friend...

Summer Time and the Livin' is Easy...

Wow! I can't believe June is half-way over.

A lot has happened since I last blogged. I have now witnessed/assisted at 11 labors and 9 births. I am still trapped in grateful amazement that I get to learn what I love. And boy have I learned a lot. The last few births were doozies! (all is well now, all families have perfect, beautiful, healthy babies)

I am working 20-35 hours a week at the daycare center

I adore my roomies! (see picture above) :)

I am officially "off-call" until August and am busy crossing off my summer bucket list.

numero uno: I am currently sitting in a "budget" hotel in HOLLAND!!!!!! 3 days in one of my favorite places in the US, beach, friends, a wedding, meeting new babies, seeing "old" babies... sigh :)
