I am at work for my 3rd nightshift, I did not sleep very well today - not sure why, my cellphone woke me up @ 1230 and that was it - 3.5 hours of sleep! I then laid in bed and read a book! I had something to eat when I got up, got to work to find no patients in our unit tonight thus far, but because we are a pediatric ICU we have to have 2 nurses here just in case someone comes in......so here I sit staring at the other nurse
I have already been for a walk to the cafeteria, it has been under construction and has just re-opened - very nice too! They also do payroll deduction I got a cheese sandwich - well it was protein right?!? Anyhow I have logged all the food that I have had today and I still have calories left.....I count midnight to midnight so I still have 3 hours left!
I have been for a walk to see some friends on another floor and will take a few walks during the night unless of course we get a patient! I have my pedometer on and it is not looking good......so far since midnight last night I have logged 3287 steps so need to get some walking in before midnight but will still be way short for today - oh well, may go do some squats and wall press ups in the other hallway where I can be alone!
Only 10 more hours to go! Then I will have a nap before driving 100 miles back to my family....my daughter is in the high school band and they are marching in the rodeo parade in the morning, so I will miss it, but will see them perform their routine at the high school football games.....they are a very good band and this year the theme is dragonslayer! I have seen lots of blogs lately about slaying the dragon, so it is very apt that she is getting us all dragonslayer shirts!
So that is my blog and yes I am blogging to get points LOL!
