Then I went inside and had this conversation with my niece...
Niece: You're done already?
Me: Yes, I only did a mile
Niece: You were gone for one minute
Me: Well, it was 12 minutes actually
Niece: You're sweating
Me: Thanks honey bunny, I know
Niece: Why are you sweating so much if you only ran for one minute?
Me: Twelve minutes... but it's hot outside.
Niece: Hmmm... that's a lot of sweat Aunty LeAnne
Me: Time for bed 😑.
(I'm just kidding about that last one 😂)
Prior to the run and my niece's evaluation of my sweat production, I had a somewhat productive day at work. I'm putting the final touches on my poster and it will soon be ready for the "grand reveal". It's really coming together though and I'm excited for the opportunity to share the non-accidental trauma (child abuse) guideline that I worked so tirelessly on. I think that all nurses have a set of patients that they feel really passionate about advocating for. I've been a Pediatric ER & Trauma nurse (in some capacity) over the past 12 years and it's been both rewarding and heartbreaking. Accidents happen and sometimes kids get hurt... that's just a reality of the world we live in. But when a child is intentionally injured by an adult who should be caring for them... that's a problem. Anyway, once the poster is completely ready the image will be sharper, but until then...
(this is the general layout so far)
And finally... This totally made my day today!!!
(tee hee 😉)
Tell me one thing that made you smile today.
What did you do to sweat?
What are you most passionate about at work?
