How fun! A whole post devoted to someone I love to talk about! 1. Who is your man? Luke Preston Cantrell 2. How long have you been together? Starting "talking" in the Spring of 2003, started dating on October 17, 2003, and got married December 9, 2006. 3. How long did you date? Dated 2 years, engaged 13 months. Like my friend, Heather, we were long distance all but 10 months of this enitre time period. 4. How old is your man? 26! We have each others half birthdays (His : oct 5!) 5. Who eats more? About equal. I eat large portions in one sitting, and he's a grazer. 6. Who is taller? Luke. 7. Who sings better? Definitely him! 8. Who is smarter? He says we are equal...but he is just a tad bit smarter. And because he doesnt read this, it's ok! 9. Whose temper is worse? We both have our moments! 10. Who does the laundry? Me. 11. Who takes out the garbage? I take it to the outside trashcan and he takes it to the road. 12. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Luke and me. If we are sleeping together, it is him, but otherwise we both sleep on the same side! 13. Who pays the bills? Usually Luke, but we sometimes do it together after our paycheck family Dave meeting. 14.

Depends on who remembered to grab the restaurant envelope! 19. Who is most stubborn? Equal. 20. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Me....or him...depends on who's wrong :) 21. Whose parents do you see the most? Mine. They do live 4.5 miles away. But Nov-Jan, it was definitely his. 22. Who kissed who first? He kissed me first 23. Who asked who out? He begged me to go out with him (again, he doesnt read this so I can say stuff like that :) 24. Who proposed? Luke! After driving 16 hours to meet my plane at the Orlando airport. 25. Who is more sensitive? About equal. 26. Who has more friends? He has a few best friends, and I have alot of good friends. I think those are both good options.

1. You occasionally park in the space with the "physician's only" sign...and knock it over. 2. You believe some patients are alive only because it is illegal to kill them. 3. You recongnize that you can't cure stupid. 4. You own at least 3 pens with the names of prescription meds on them. 5. You believe there's a special place in hell for the inventor of the call light. 6. You believe that saying, "It cant get any worse" causes it to get worse to show you it can. 7. You wash your hands BEFORE you go to the bathroom. 8. You believe that any job where you can go to work in your pjs is a cool one. 9. You consider a tongue depressor an eating utensil. 10. Eating microwave popcorn out of an unsused bedpan is perfectly natural. 11. You've been exposed to so many xrays you consider it a form of birth control. 12. You've ever heard a pt with a nose ring, a brow ring, and twelve earrings say, "I'm afraid of shots." (Same goes for women who have just given birth in reference to the tape on their arm getting removed. I mean, seriously? You've just given birth and tape removal causes you to scream?) 13. You've ever told a confused pt that your name is that of a coworker and to call if they need help. 14. Your bladder can expand to the size of a winnebago's water tank. 15. You have seen more penises than any prostitute could dream of. (And in my case, more boobs than any man could dream of!) 16. You believe that not all patients are annoying...some are unconcious. 17. Your family and friends refuse to watch medical sitcoms with you b/c you spend the whole time correcting everyone and pointing out upside down xrays (I mean, I cant help it that Izzie has her stethescope in her ears backwards everytime she uses it!) 18. You don't get excited about blood...unless it's your own. 19. You've sworn to have "Do Not Resuscitate" on your chest. Soon. 20. Discussing dismemberment over a gourmet meal is prefectly normal to you. 21. Your idea of fine dining is anywhere you can sit down to eat. 22. Your idea of a good time is a cardiac arrest at shift change. 23. You believe in the aerial spraying of Prozac. 24. You believe that Shallow Gene Pool should be a recognized diagnosis. 25. You believe that the government should require permits to reproduce. 26. You've ever had to leave a pt's room before you began to laugh uncontrollably,
Add on...27. If you are posting on your blog at 0309, then you might be a nurse. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Just wanted to write a quick note wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!! I made pink cinnamon rolls for breakfast and brought Luke some Mississippi these are known as Caramel Delights, right Ms. Amy? :) Several years ago, Luke and I got into a discussion about Girl Scout cookies and I was adamant the coconut lovelies were called Samoas. I informed Luke I was the Top Seller in my Brownie Troop, so I definitely knew what they were called. We called his mom, who informed me they were called Caramel Delights. We were at my mom's house, and she informed Luke they were called Samoas. In fact, we still had a box with the logo on the side in our attic. Short story long, when cookie time came around that year, my mom sent Luke a box of Samoas from TN, and his mom sent him a box of Caramel Delites from MS. What are they called where you are from??
Things that make you go HMM??

This is your life....

I just found this gem of a blog off of my friend, Audra. It is my life. She is right when she says pregnancy doesnt discrimminate, and sometimes I ask myself, HOW? If you would ever like to see what a day in the life of an OB nurse is like, please read. And dont repeat any of these patients mistakes!
On another funny note, Luke and I made it to Jake's bball game last Saturday. My mom pointed out the kid who had been mean to Jake, making fun of him, the usual bully things. I started laughing because he is so little, and Jake is big for his age.("Johnny" is the one in the maroon jersey on the left) My mom then tells this story:
Jake: Well, I know why Johnny is mad at me.
Mama: Really, hunny? What happened?
Jake: Well, the first time I met him, I said "Arent you so cute!" And then I picked him up.
That is the funniest thing I have heard since a patient told me her husband tried to nurse, to verify the baby wasnt getting anything!

Happy Mardi Gras!

Well, let me back up! We watched the Super Bowl at Mike's house, a guy in our small group, and what a game. (Well, the last quarter anyway.) I had no loyalty to either team, so I usually base my cheering on which quarter back was cutest. In this case, I had 2 Bad Choices! Yes, Tom Brady is quite a looker...but look at what a dud of a dad he has turned out to be. And Eli is a cutie...but he hails from that other school in Mississippi! I guess in the end, I am glad the good guy took home the bacon! Here are some pics from the party...Unfortunately, I didnt think to take on of myself, and I wore a really cute red, white, and blue headband (for the winner...whichever it turned out to be !)
Now, on to the next party! Happy Fat Tuesday to everyone (and yes, I know it is Thursday!!) Luke and I celebrated a little early with a King Cake! Yummy! Luke brought one home the day they came out in the stores, and I got to find the baby! I am going to attempt to make one tonight, so we'll see how that goes! Yesterday, we were glued to the tv watching all of the tornadoes around us. I was planning on making some sort of Cajun shrimp something, but that'll have to wait until this weekend. Work was CRAZY last night!! Imagine 20 + postpartum women in the hallway and all the babies in the nursery!! And of course with the weather, every preggo woman within 50 miles went into labor!! Glad I am in the nursery and not the ER :) Love you Audra!!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
