Don't Curse the Nurse!

Sharing support with stories & humor


on January 1, 2020

It’s the first day of the New Year and I feel like, gosh Susan, you should have something poetic to say, but…..I don’t.

I had the day off. I didn’t stay up until midnight yesterday drinking champagne, so I was up today by 8:30 am (for a nurse, that’s sleeping in). That was my party, staying up two hours later than usual because I could.

Today I had Black – Eyed peas, beans and cornbread with the folks as a New Year’s good luck kind of thing.

Then I came home and mowed my yard.

Yep, that’s the exciting thing I did for New Year’s Day. Ha!


I am on page 42 of Melinda Gates book The Moment of Lift. (Thank you, big sister. Good choice)

My daughter has educated me enough to have some competency on Instagram.

And I can hold my plank for three minutes.

So, there’s that.

But hey, there’s a new nursing in the blogging world! Say hello to Anna.

        Oh, it’s funny you mention that pull-up business… I have a vague-ish goal of trying to do one this year. Another blogger gave me the idea of jumping up to do it as opposed to just doing it from a dead lift (which wasn’t happening for me whatsoever!). Jumping didn’t work either but I plan to try it again.

        After I read your post I googled the 3-minute plank; apparently there’s a changing-pose version too:
