I am going to be in the NFL!!


I have done nothing but work, eat, and get a little bit of sleep.
You have to go back to last Monday...I worked a 12, then Tuesday woke up early, went to a Dr.'s appointment, worked 10 hours, then got Wednesday off, woke up to work another 12 on Thursday and Friday and Saturday and Sunday and then a 16 hour on Monday, and another 10 on Tuesday. And now here I am finally, with a day off.

Yes there is tons of cleaning and laundry and errands to run, but needless to say, I felt like I was just a blur, going and going and going.

I love being a nurse and had a funny story from this weekend. Right at shift change, my patient pulled out his Foley Catheter. I went to reinsert it (Google it...) and he began talking to me to get his mind off of what was happening.


As I am inserting the catheter, the man asks me "So do aspire to be anything more than just a nurse, or is this it?" 
Haha gotta love cranky old men!

I could have been offended, but why? Instead I thought about if I wasn't a nurse, what would I be?


I dream of being a football player. I think i really missed my calling...cheering fans, team spirit, awesome color combos, grass, flying on planes, and let's face it...MONEY.

Plus I could have a banging body (from actually working out). Since I am a girl I would guess I would have to be a kicker or punter or long snapper. I think long snapper is my calling. I can't kick a ball to save my life...

Or I could just marry rich...

 

Good thing he is!

Hope you guys are having a great Wednesday!

  5. Haha. That's rediculous that the man thought you should be something other than a nurse. Good for you for putting a positive spin on it. :-)
