Like riding a bike ...

except that the bike has been painted, and I'm riding it with different people ...

I am no longer a stay at home Mom. Today was my first day back. I work in Emergency as a registered nurse. This week I'm having buddy shifts to get re-orientated to my old stomping grounds (except that most of my friends have moved on - having babys, going to new jobs etc ... so there are many new faces. And they have changed some of the processes in the department.) Looking forward to the day that I actually feel like I know more than a handful of people. As for the new processes ... I'm sure I'll figure that out quickly too. It really is like riding a bicycle. I still know how to be a nurse.

Some observations:
1. They must have changed the handsoap, because my hands are not nearly as raw as they used to be at work (of course this is day one).
2. I don't worry about the boys ... because I know they are in good hands with Grandma.
3. I love my husband! It was really really nice to see Matt (he brought us a patient) and made a point of coming to find me. This won't happen often because we're going to try and work around his schedule so Grandma doesn't have to be here all the time.
4. My boys grow when I'm not at home. I got home and thought Joel looked especially tall and grown up. Sniff.
