Opal Fire

Opal Fire (A Stacy Justice Mystery, #1)Opal Fire by Barbra Annino

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read the comparison before, but I definitely agree, this reminds me of the Stefanie Plum series. Either way, I enjoyed it. It wasn't Earth-shattering, but a fun read.

Ray of Sunshine

I had off work today so we spent some time enjoying the clouding weather out back.  She turned around just as I snapped my shutter.  She's my ray of sunshine!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! Living on the East Coast, I heard little about the Japanese interment camps of WW2 during my schooling. The book goes back and forth between the 1980's and the 1940's and each transition flowed. The book incorporates several emotions. You'll get a story of finding your identity, loyalty, love, and grief. I didn't find it politically overbearing and definitely recommend it!

Sayonara Breast Pump!

Well, for the most part, I'm done pumping!  The past couple of days I realized how nice it has been not to pump at work anymore.  I'm fortunate that we're still breast feeding about twice a day, but I decided once we hit a year and I started my new job I wasn't going to pump anymore.  I feel fortunate because I feel like I was able to multitask while pumping, but it's definitely nice to eat or do work without being hooked up to the pump.  I'm also LOVING wearing dresses again!  I love dresses, but it was always so hard to pump in them so I feel like I haven't really worn a dress regularly for a year. 

I work one night a week and Joe had to put Bri down to bed that night, so I'm still pumping when I come home, but I can deal with that.

And here's a picture from this morning
"No Mommy, you are not going. I'm going to block the door and I'll go ahead and call your boss."

First Week Down!

I successfully finished my first week at my new job!  I took 4 weeks off between residency and starting my new job.  I enjoyed the time off, however I think I mostly spent it preparing for R2D2's first birthday.  The last week off we did have the opportunity to spend two nights at the beach.  Oh, my, goodness, taking a toddler to the beach is a whole new experience.  Thankfully the weather was nice because she did not like being cramped up in the hotel room.

However, I digress.  I'm loving my new job.  I feel like I'm finally doing what I have trained so long for.  That being said, I am so glad I have had all of that training, it is certainly necessary.  I'm loving meeting new families and getting to know a new set of patients.  It's also great that I have several other doctors here if I have questions.

With having a little more time on my hands, I have ventured back into the kitchen.  I hope I'll get back to posting more recipes, but we'll see.  Now with a little one, I'm spending my free time with her and not so much on the computer.
