Iron Woman

Let's just assume that I'm always a week or two behind on blogging, shall we?

I have been working like a MAD WOMAN the past couple of weeks.  In addition to overtime at the ER, earlier this month I volunteered in the medical tent at the finish line of the Ironman Triathalon that was held here one Saturday.  Ummm, that was FUN.  Why would anyone sign up, much less pay to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, then run a 26.2 mile marathon?  400 or so athletes that ended up in the main medical tent at some point on Saturday, which was fun for this girl who got to stick big needles in lots of exceptionally nice "patients" throughout the evening.  Severe electrolyte imbalances (aka extremely low sodium levels) can cause people to act a little confused and "out of it", and I'm not ashamed to say that it was borderline entertaining to see these world-class athletes giggling at each other over cups of chicken broth and asking me questions like "am I in Texas?"

We're not sponsoring Guatemalan Aidan anymore.  Two people were accidently assigned the same child, so someone else has Guatemalan Aidan.  We have another little boy now.

We went to Kentucky over Memorial Day weekend.  It will probably be July before I get around to editing pictures and blogging about it.  But I loved it.  Every second.

Pinterest is an awesome place for finding ideas for end-of-school year teacher gifts.  I'll have to take a picture of our teacher gifts this year and share it with you.  You know, so you can pin it.

Over the next few days I will be attending a rehearsal dinner, wedding, swim meet, baby shower, birthday party for a 3-year old where Brandon will be dressing up as Thor (I am not even kidding) and probably a couple of graduation parties.  Basically a lot of opportunities to eat cake.

I have a couple of more posts in progress that will hopefully make a little more sense than this jumbled mess.  Can I blame it on the last day of school?
