Long week and the first purchase

I don't think LONG is the right word to do justice to this past week. Things were absolutely a zoo at work. Now, admittedly, I have a ways to go in being efficient. I'm still learning. I had been at my previous job long enough to know where to take shortcuts when necessary to get the job done. No, I don't mean ones that would compromise safety, but time savers. I haven't get enough experience to know those things for my new job. Add to that double to the number of new admissions, some very sick people, it all added up to some long days. My shortest work day this week was 11 hours, longest 13 - by Friday evening, I was exhausted - mentally and physically. I went into work for a while yesterday to try and catch up. Hopefully, next week will be a little bit quieter. I truly love my job, but wow... I don't want to repeat a week like that again for a while - I need a little time to recuperate - lol!

Today was the fly-in at the small airpark/farm where Mark keeps his airplane. It's also where we got married. It was a small crowd this year, not sure if it was wind, heat, a combination, or what that kept people away. I spent a few hours out there and decided to head home to catch up on laundry and a few things around the house.

On my way home, I stopped at a little shop here in town. They had advertised 75% of most of their precious moments figurines. And those of you who have been at our house, know that I collect PM - so... of course, I had to stop to see what the shop had. I picked up one sweet figurine, but that's not the purchase I'm talking about.

I haven't bought anything for our little one yet. Mark and I have talked about it. Although we have an idea of the type of child(ren) we hope to bring home, we are keeping an open mind because anything can happen on this journey of ours. It's tough to buy anything for a specific gender, age, size, etc because we just don't know. Today I found something that isn't gender specific. It is a little bit age and size specific, but I'm not too concerned about that. We won't take it on our first trip, but when the time comes to bring our little one home - it will be in the suitcase.  Here it is!

Isn't he cute? He's a little neck pillow and oh, so soft!
