Bowling In SD

Took my new bowling ball out for a spin in San Diego. Dad wanted to bowl as well which was a little technically challenging but we made due. It was a lot of fun, we laughed and laughed and Lisa beat us all. Will be giving my ball another spin tonight during league.

Transradial Access

This past week, Tommy had an interview with Channel 17 news regarding his new approach for cardiac catheterization which is called transradial approach. The patients really love this approach, its more comfortable and the recovery period is much more pleasant. This process of documenting my life is really interesting in the fact that on this day my stress level was so high, trying to fit everything in, the cases, the interview, the filming not to mention all the patients that he had to see this day. You cant see it on his face, can't feel it when you watch the interview. I so wanted to journal this on my project but the truth is, he is doing the best for his patients despite that in the end, the longer time it takes to perform this procedure, the time it takes to train the staff, try and try all the new equipment and deal with the challenges that come up during the procedure only takes a toll on him. I see it, I feel it but he will never complain. He is self-less, he puts everyone else first and himself last. I admire his dedication, his commitment and sometimes I loose sight of all the good he is doing because I am tied up in the moment, the schedule, the patients waiting and the long hours we will have to put in that day. Oh sigh.

My Dads passport came. He is now ready for Canada!
I had lunch with Debbie Hankins this week. I went to nursing school with her and we were quite close during school. We sat down and it seemed like yesterday. Wow we never stopped talking the entire time. I left my camera a home and this ipic is not that good, but the memory makes up for it.
Shopping with Dad.
Richard buys me flowers every week, last week he bought me three bouquets.!

Cocktails by the pool in Sunny San Diego!!!
I got my new leopard bowling ball drilled.
Peaceful morning
Lunch with my friend Nancy Carr at mill creek.

Just a few pics from my project life. I am really loving the whole process.

Project LIfe Week 9

Still going strong, last week was week nine. Here is how it looks in the book. I have seven slots for pictures and eight spots for journaling or what not. I have been journaling more than ever in my life. Really gets out my frustrations.

I am really enjoying the process of documenting everyday life and feelings. I may have extra pictures or a do dad to put in a spot and some weeks I have an extra insert but all in all Loving it.

I have been bowling on a league on Monday nights with my Dad as my coach. My game is totally inconsistent. It has actually sucked the last couple of weeks. I have finally figured out what my issue was, my ball was just not right!

So here is my new bowling ball. I think it will help me get my game on.!!!! But of course I had to accessorize it a little.

Here are my cute new bowling shoes, and before you ask I could not find any leopard ones but link and black totally rock.

And to carry it all in:
by cute little bag. Now I searched high and low and could not get a leopard one. I found one but its discontinued so here was my second choice.

So I will keep updated on my bowling progress!!!!
