just give me a minute...

i decided to celebrate the holiday yesterday, by working. i worked on a medical/surgical unit where quite a few adults confirmed my desire to become a pediatric nurse! honestly, sometimes i think adults are pathetic and consumed by things that really don't matter in the long run. it was a challenging day to say the least. one lady threw a fit because i wasn't around to get her a popsicle the second she paged. many of the patients on this unit can't walk on their own and require a lot of assistance with activities of daily living...which apparently isn't as important as someone's need for ice cream. this incident was one among many, but stands out the most. when i got home i was so pooped but since i had some alone time, i decided to take a minute (or 146) for myself. i completed a great workout, showered and treated myself to a movie. i saw the da vinci code, which i really enjoyed, but didn't get home until 12:40!!! husband thinks i'm kind of weird to go to the movies alone but after the day i had, i really enjoyed the moments of solitude.

OK, I know times get a little tough but a late night movie!!!!by yourself!!!!!Tsk!, Tsk! OK, I feel like a grandma now. Popsicle? what is it about elderly people who think they can be cantankerous without fault! Stay with the babies....
I also saw the DaVinci Code..I'm still up in the air about the "theory".
Love,

I would definitely like the pediatric unit. With me, it's the innocence (sp) that I gravitate towards.

Hey, if it's any consolation I have a mother in law that gets pretty demanding about things too! It's really silly when you think about it but to them it's sooo important.

Have a great day! b.t.w. can you get me a popsicle? :)

Wow! what a day. How'd you like the movie? Sorry about your patient. What a bummer. I heard you tell me that you went to the movies, but for some reason that didn't register with me. I'm not sure about the hour, though. You're braver than me! Hugs....
