My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Marathon Exam

For the past few months, I feel like I've been in training. Six months ago I registered John and I. I purchased review books & DVDs for each of us. For the past 2 months I
have studied almost every day for a few hours. Just like preparing for a marathon, I managed to continue eating well. I didn't want to screw up and be all sick from introducing processed foods. I maintained my swimming (doggie paddle) 4 x a week. I went to bed by 11 and got up by 7 so my body would be use to waking up for exam time.

In this past week, I started planning our actually trip, getting the car ready, hotel, packing, leaving food for the boys, and getting comfy clothes ready. I've written before how I hate leaving the kids behind and not waking up next to them.

I have had to put off much of my quality time with the boys so I could concentrate. I have delayed and deferred other activities and needs in my life.

John and I felt prepared going in to the test. Upon finishing seven hours later we both felt beaten. He thought the whole test was Pediatrics. I thought the whole test was Endocrine. I wonder if they gave me the right test. ;) It was that hard. We don't get our scores for a while.

I am so looking forward to doing something fun tomorrow with the boys.

Wow, 7 hour test? That is a marathon! Congrats! Enjoy tomorrow with your family! :) BTW did you see Oxbow Eco-Center is having a family drum circle on August 9th.

Hope you get good results. When Hector toko his massage tests, they were both different.

They were broken down inot categories, and one could be Oriental Medicine with 12%, and the next test could be 43% Oriental Medicine. there is no rhyme or reason to how they divide the test.

Two people could sit down next to one another and get completely different tests, and some tests even could be absent of Oriental Medicine, so go figure.

Best of luck!

I was thinking of you yesterday, hoping that you would make it through unscathed. I bet you did great. Enjoy your downtime with the boys!
