So, I am starting this on the second day of April....so I will have to make 2 entries. One for A and one for B.
A is easy....accomplishment. Accomplishment (noun) something difficult or important that was done.
I am fortunate to have accomplished a lot in my life so far. There are big accomplishments and little accomplishments...today's accomplishment was putting together this blog. With a little help from Husband I have arrived.
My next big accomplishment will take place next Saturday when I give a lecture on the Nursing Management of Lung Cancer Patients. When I was approached to do the talk, about 8 months ago, it seemed like a sensible and doable task. Put together a power point presentation and speak to a crowd. "No worries", they said "Dr Peterson will be up there with you to whole time." Then, the deadline for the power point loomed over me.....I was able to accomplish that in a day of focus...just me and my laptop. I was amazed at how the information flowed and came out of me. Sure, I had the help of the NCCN guidelines and Lil O's pharmacy outline to help provide structure and sustenance.....but there was so much stored up inside of me. I amazed even myself. Presentation submitted for the slides to be produced in syllabus form. MK is amazing at making these things happen (she is very accomplished *wink* *wink*). I have become complacent since turning in my presentation. Relieved. But now suddenly the talk is looming near. What am I going to wear? Am I going to be as blaah as some of the speakers from the last few years (love the people, but *yawn*)? Why did I agree to this? What is chemotherapy? Are the Doc's attending going to be rolling their eyes? Am I going to have mush mouth? I tend to do so when nervous and hurried......enough.
In this moment, here and now, I am going to bask in my little accomplishment of the day......Raising Arizona in Wisconsin.
