Reason #584 why I love Alaska:

I mean, really!
Each head of lettuce could feed an army.
Best time of the year to be in AK.

And reason #585:
It has been much easier to find employment here than in Minnesota.
  I got a job! Woohoo!
  I will be working as a nurse in the hospital on the medical-surgical floor and pediatrics floors.
It still is not my dream job of being a labor and delivery nurse.....
...but, it's close to home (no commute!),
I get to be in the hospital again,
and it's a job, for heaven's sake!
I'm really looking forward to using all my "skills" again. 
You know: starting IV's, inserting NG tubes, the whole shebang. 

I have to admit, I've been getting a little teary-eyed just thinking about leaving my little munchkins to go back to work full time. 
I definitely look forward to the day when I can just be a full-time mom.
But until then, I'm grateful to have a profession that I actually enjoy
and that I have been able to find good employment in an economy like this.  What a blessing!
Plus, I don't start until October, so I get to spend another month soaking up precious time with my little ladies.
Life is great.
And have I mentioned that I love Alaska!? :)

Holy big lettuce! Wow, Holly! You make me want to come visit again. :)

Congrats on the job, too. Alaska is much better for having you back to take care of their patients.
