It’s Official!!

Remember that really important test I took about 3 months ago?  The one determining my status as a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant?  Well,  I passed (pheeeew!).  I’m so glad the waiting is all over!  Don’t think that I haven’t been thinking about it, every day for the last 3 months! I can finally thump that annoying little guy that has been sitting on my shoulder telling me I should’ve studied more.

I got the results on Friday and spent the whole weekend relishing the fact that a new chapter in my nursing career is about to start.  Things are looking a lot better.  The certificate came today. Woohhoooo!!


Here are some of the things we did over the weekend…

* Tucson Green Festival which was nice and informative, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed by all the Styrofoam & waste that was generated.  What’s up with that!

* Dinner out at Guilin, a healthy Chinese restaurant with lots of vegan options.  Very yummy.

* Some low-budget, but very tasty wine to celebrate.

* A walk around colorful downtown Tucson.

* Hike on Sunday morning.

* Lots of reading.

* Farmers market trip resulting in a delicious pasta dinner.

* Some pumpkin carving with the boys.

* Lots of drawings/watercolors (coming soon).

* The discovery of a new shop called Popcycle, featuring handmade/recycled items.  Very cool.

* Lots of smiling from the incredibly kind comments on my eyeball Ts.  You guys are awesome. 😀

    Yay sista! I’m going to have to have a talk with that little “person” sitting on your shoulder – YOU are capable of doing ANYTHING you set your mind to no matter what that little stinker whispers in your ear. I’m so incredibly proud of you and I’m so excited that I will have my very own personal lactation consultant session when Ruby gets here:) I love you muchly more than you’ll ever know!
