Fall officially starts today and I have already been going all in on all things pumpkin. Yes, I am that basic women who goes crazy when pumpkin spice hits the shelves. This year I have consumed more pumpkin in my whole life before Autumn has even begun.
Small businesses are an essential part of the economy and promote competition. They offer more selection, personalized items and face to face conversations. Shopping from a small business gives me a feeling of supporting my local community and getting to know someone who is doing what they love. I have always tried to shop small but it can be easy to fall away from this. So, recently I have made an effort to purposely start shopping small. If you are in need of an item or want a specific item take time to research who you can support instead of running to a big box store.
Many nurses work 12 hour shifts and spend most of that time on their feet. This can cause a lot of pain and swelling. Hence the importance of wearing compression socks. They are not only for patients, runners, or people with vein issues. So let’s talk about the benefits and where you can buy some cute fashionable compression socks.
Nursing report sheets are pre-made templates that allow the nurse to keep track of their patients and allows them to stay organized. These sheets are filled out at the start of the shift and can be used throughout the shift. The report sheet contains vital information such as identifying information, diagnosis, doctors, labs and medication times.
This year has been rough. There has been a lot going in the world and it has caused stress and anxiety. Also, in March 2020 we sadly lost our dog to cancer. Mitch was 12 years old and lived a happy life. I thought I would hold off at least a year before getting another dog. My husband guessed a week before I would start looking. Well it lasted less than 3 months before I found a puppy I fell in love with.
One of my goals for 2020 is to be more mindful. Back in December 2019 I decluttered some of my makeup and skin care items. The rest I am panning and emptying. The goal is to not buy anything unless it is empty and I need to replace the item. I am only replacing if it is something I actually need not just because I want it.
