Come on tough nut....you are from Colorado!














That's what an old friend just said to me on my Facebook, in reply to what I wrote as my status message, "Kirsten learned sitting at a high school football game in 30 degree weather is NO FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Ummm...maybe my blood has thinned in my old age?

As if! I am only 37. Have been saying that a lot lately.

But yeah, sitting in 30 degree weather is just not for me! Even back in my Colorado days it wasn't. I have skiid one half day in my life. I was plowed into by an old man on the bunny slopes, and that was it for me! I went and slept in the car whilst everyone else mastered the blues? and greens? or was it blacks? of Monarch...whateva!

The three years in North Dakota didn't serve me well either. -70 degrees Fahrenheit, snowed in on Christmas day. Yeah, how romantic. Gag! That's about when you want to get out!

I was wearing thermal underwear, two shirts under a sweatshirt, under a coat, with a really thick, cable-knit beanie, scarf and gloves, two pairs of socks, and my warmest shoes...and I was still freezing!

A polar bear I am not!

hey! you asked about when I knew I wanted to be a labor nurse? basically that is the whole reason i went to nursing school. i was a doula to friends and found myself reading everything i could get my hands on about childbirth. i never doubted my desire for L&D but also liked the ED--guess i love adrenaline! ;)
