I've done a few things that for me are kind of big things and I'm kind of proud of them. They may not seem like big things to you, but they are to me!

I hosted our monthly bunco at our house. I cleaned the house, I made snacks, and I had people over. As someone who strongly dislikes planning and organizing events that involve me being in charge of hosting something, this was a pretty big deal. Especially lately. And everything went well and we had fun! The other bonus was that I thought I was going to have to send Danny and Cohen off for the night, but then Cohen ended up going to bed at our house and sleeping like a champ through bunco. Win.

The other thing is that I took care of kids at work for the first time since the boys were born. I am a nurse and we get a decent number of kids that come through as patients. Up until now, I just haven't been able to take care of the kiddos, or even be in the same area as them, without getting incredibly anxious. But, a few weeks ago, I cornered my favorite nurse and told her that she was going to help me out. I knew it was something that I needed to do to help me move forward. It was hard to step away from all of the feelings and emotions I have about "sick" babies/kids, but I did it. It wasn't easy, but I made it through. And I'm kinda proud of myself :)


  1. Good for you! Those two things are really a big deal.
