Rough day!

Today was a rough one. I feel like I am in my early 20's again. You know that feeling of the "day after" a really fun party. But the problem is - I haven't had a drink. Night shift is getting harder & harder to work. I can't bounce back like I used too. I was able to catch a nap though this afternoon. I listen to this podcast called Daily Power Nap. It is awesome - check it out on itunes sometime. I am trying to get it on my little widget. But it is only 20 minutes long & it does the trick. 

I'm a RN, critical care by specialty and last night started out with a bang!! My poor little patient, all whopping 120 lbs. of him threw up all over me - literally 15 minutes into my shift. Thank goodness for my scrub jacket - it took all nastiness. Well - some got on my arm - but otherwise the rest of my clothes were untouched. It would've been a grueling 8 hours if it had been otherwise. Then evening ended much better than it started - for which I am thankful. 

I'm looking forward to going to bed, but True Blood is on tonight (HBO) & I can't miss it!!
