    Finished all scheduled for today except for two student calls that are later tonight. DS didn't know the "potatoes" were cauliflower instead! I've had coffee with extra coconut cream, a bottle of periere with lime, about a cup of cauliflower mashed with butter and garlic, a chicken thigh with skin cooked as described above, the sauce with mushrooms, 12 oz of club soda with lime, and about 8 oz of broiled Brussels sprouts tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, and 1/2 a lemon juiced. Feel pretty good even though I'm low on everything.

    Picked up a pork loin when I was out and I'm making kaluah pig in the slow cooker for tomorrow lunch and dinner.

    Pedidoc, I've been reading along for a while now, and must say I'm very impressed by your organization and managing to stay on top of everything both at home and on the road. Working, teaching, studies, and running the household continuing to stick with your primal plans; I thought it was busy here, but I've got nothing on you . From one nurse to another: you're doing fantastic .

    Thanks Greensprout! This week is one where I know I will struggle. I'm covering the clinic Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (his mom's 80th birthday). I'm also trying to catch up with summer class. So positive comments are very welcome!

    Nursing in Canada is a bit different then here, right? The Canada nurses I know we're rural and are much more similar to NPs.

    Not so different, from many Canadian RNs I've known who've worked in the US. I think the biggest differences are how our healthcare systems function, and the fact that hospital nurses here are all unionized. Many worked in Texas and loved it. I've worked mostly as a military nurse, in both acute care and clinics, plus training and admin positions, but also a number of years in trauma centre adult emergency and surgical ICU as well as community hospital (small town) ER. And flight nursing, which I'm doing now, but from the coordination side. Still doing the odd casual ER shift when I find the time on weekends.

    Regardless, balancing it all with family is a challenge. I travel, but hubby is on the road nearly every week. We've also both deployed, so dealing with both work demands and raising 2 teenaged boys singlehandedly for sometimes months at a time can be draining. I have to say that since going Primal, it helps. I'm no expert, but I do feel better and plan to stick to this for the long term. Hubby, too, which is pretty awesome. We're aiming to live up to the "live long, drop dead" motto

    Wish hubby was on board - slowly, steadily reeling him in.

    When I'm in EP, I work as an intermittent pedi provider at the military hospital. Constantly amazed by the resilience of military families.

    I think I do better with hubby traveling than he does with me traveling. Isn't that the way of women and nurses - just make do and keep on plugging!

    I can not imagine trying to raise our 4 alone. Even with them being older, there are still issues that require both of us!

    The last time I made those I added some cooked mashed carrots. It added a nice "sweet" taste.

    I hear you there. I read a while back of some of your sons' troubles. I've seen inklings that some of that could be heading our way with son #2, but the last 6 months have seen some small improvements, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Of course, when issues do arise, often one of us is away. Which pretty much sucks. But we do our best and seem to muddle through. Hubby reacts a lot more strongly than me, which at times pisses me off. He is getting better. We're realized that for some things, we can't control them, and have made some concessions. As a result, we seem to have better communication and with the boys. Or manchildren, as I often call them. They both tower over me, but still listen, most of the time.

    Slept like a rock again - I could get used to it! Kaluah pig is yummy. I've packed some with leftover sweet potato, cherry tomatoes, and walnuts for lunch. Coffee with more coconut cream this morning - the fat holds me well. Off to the clinic today, probably lots of wheezers as the pollen count is high.

    Yum, your eating sounds great! What is kahlua pig? Somehow it doesn't sound like there's a firepit or pineapple involved in your version.

    I've got to start mashing cauliflower more often, at least while it's in season. Like now. Just bought a big one.

    I am very impressed not only with your work and class schedule, traveling, and staying primal, you maintain your journal here, which really speaks to your ability to stick with things, prioritize, and just all-around get stuff done! You are truly an inspiration.
