Challenges you are facing/dealing with right now: My girls are passing MRSA back and forth to each other. DD2 had a wound drained a couple months ago and has another sore developing. DD1 had a wound drained today and she was a wreck at the doctor's office. Broke my heart hearing her scream, but I had to giggle a little when she yelled, "I told you I don't like shots!!" I know, baby, I know. Duly noted.

Something positive that's going on or that happened recently: I've been in my current position at work for just about 2 years now, and am starting to get more comfortable, finally. One of the new grads has been coming to me a lot to ask questions, and it's a bit of a confidence booster!
