Monday monday... nah nah, nah na nah nah...

Monday, February 14, 2011

Even though I'm exhausted, I'm in pretty good spirits:

I got off my shift on time again last night (we did have a pretty bad call in the evening, but it turned out somewhat okay).

I eventually got a nap in for about a half hour.

I slept most of the night. We got paged for a fire at the nursing home. They paged all the fire depts and our dept was the farthest out, so I didn't go. I felt guilty, but I don't think I would have been any help. The page was at 02220.

I made it to work on time. I plan to run at lunch, although the weather isn't looking real promising... windy and rain forecasted. Maybe the treadmill is in my future this evening.

My Dad came down with a stomach bug. Apparently, he tossed his cookies during the end of his shift yesterday and was so bad off that my Mom had to go get him. She said he was running a fever this morning and wasn't going to work. I think that's the first day of work my Dad has missed ever. I'm praying he didn't give it to me.

Ok, happy Monday, I have tax maps to update!

No rest for the weary...

Never got the nap... negative
Did get off shift on time... positive
Did get to eat with mom and granny... positive

There was a call at 0145 this morning... sledding accident. The girl had a bad femur fracture and it was not accessible by ambulance. I heard the call. I knew I had to be at work today, but I couldn't leave the on duty crew to deal with it. They were over 20 miles away and I was 7 miles away. I went. It was bad. She was drunk. She was hysterical. Her friends were drunk. Her friends were distracting. It was hard to deal with at this point 0230 in the morning.

Long story short... I got the patient air evacuated and got back in bed by about 0445. I couldn't sleep. And here I am at work starting at 0900. I'm here until 2100 (9PM). I caught up on my paperwork and was just getting ready to lay down for a nap and off we went to yet another call. My wonderful partner did all the work. Bless her.

I'll stop griping now. Still ready for that nap.

Slow down!

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Good grief... car wreck after car wreck this morning... slow down! Please!

I'm going to take a nap... its snowy and windy today. So much for walking around the cemetary... maybe tomorrow...

I'm going to hit either the bike trainer or the treadmill tonight. My food is ready for tomorrow, so I have no excuses except laziness! :)

Here's to a slow day the rest of the day!

    Amen to the day of rest.

It's a good sign that you have everything planned out as well as you do. Enjoy your rest, you deserve it.

Reflections of Februarys Past

Friday, February 11, 2011

First shot at a video blog! Have mercy! :)

Just realized I refer to my "ex-husband"... I am still married to my wonderful husby! I was referring to my first marriage. Sorry if there was any confusion.

    I am woefully behind in blog reading/watching so it took me until this afternoon to view this. I had to smile because you look and sound exactly as I pictured you looking and sounding.

A dude much older than me once said "The blues dont care whose got em' " True Dat!!! It was 60 here today and sunny and I actually relaxed a bit and let my blues melt with the remaining snow. Winter, she is a cruel, cruel mistress because I know within a week it will be dreary again. But hey, that's why I gots me friends, correct?

Mucho Love and Happy Valentines Day

  Life challenges you even when you really don't want the challenge. It is amazing how resilient the heart can be. For me, my heart has a great memory, if only my brain was as sharp. I think it is amazing how life will take out the trash our hearts hoards. There are challenges we have zero control over, but the one thing you can control is you. And it appears you have taken control and making the best of something your heart has not forgotten. Enjoy the weekend!

Fighting the losing battle today...

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I have seasonal affective disorder (SAD). For some reason today it is getting the best of me. I am usually careful to take my vitamin D, sit near windows, etc. I guess it kind of snuck up on me today since its sunny out. I don't know, but today is a hard day.

It is too cold to run today so I walked 2 miles. Its pretty pathetic that walking 2 miles burns 139 calories and running 2 miles is about double that. I am planning on hitting the gym tonight for a good solid run. I'm actually thinking about asking the boss if I can leave a little early.

So, friends, I hope to be back to normal tomorrow... or I guess I should say as normal as my normal can be.

    Sometimes we all have bad days. Don't be too hard on yourself. This winter has been cold and dark! I hope tomorrow is a brighter day!
