No you may NOT discharge that patient today - tomorrow's fine

That's what I said to a doctor the other day when I caught an extra shift on another unit. Surprisingly they listened!!!

My explanation to them was this: I had 5 pt's, on a new unit that I'm not familiar with, everything that I'm used to is completely different, I thought that I would be overwhelmed if I would have a discharge and subsequent admission and it was just too darned late in the day (after 5pm) to be discharging someone and they would just have to wait one more night.

Worked out anyways seeing as the pt was still requiring PRN pain meds because of severe feet pain related to a bone infection in both heels. Ya ouchy!

Planning a vacation....

Hubby works at a manufacturing plant for drinks (they make tetra packs of juice sort of thing and like gatorade and coca cola drinks) and works in the lab - and they decided to tell him today that in ONE week, they're going to close the plant for a week....

So now I get to plan us a get away!!! And where did I plan to go you ask???

Well great wolf lodge sort of place - indoor water park - YAY!!!

Little tyke will be UBER excited, she LOVES swimming and anything water related so this will certainly be right up her alley. And when I mentioned it to hubby he signed on board.

Now I just have to wait a week to go. OOOOOOoooooo I can't wait. I love water parks, they're fun!

It also includes the night away and dinner and breakfast so I'm looking forward to that as well.

Now to just get some of this course work finished and submitted.... off I go to do that then

Reading a whole book is hard!

I'm nearing the end of one of my courses that I had to do. It was developmental psych throughout the lifespan. For the course I had to read EVERY chapter for this stupid course. Sounds easy enough right? NOT AT ALL!!!!

I made it through it though, finished my last chapter today. Now I only have a week to complete ALL the coursework associated with it as well as 3 other quizzes.

We'll see how well I do in this one. I'll certainly be working my ass off though.

Now I have like 6 papers that I have to write, don't know if I have to use APA guidelines or not. Will suck if I do. I verily dislike APA, it's so incredibly technical and irritating; anyone else agree???!!!

Sometimes I hate coursework. Other times I feel so motivated to get it done because I know that I'm one step closer to getting my degree and being able to move where I want, getting the job I want, etc... Oh I can't wait to walk across the stage to accept my degree and show everyone that I made it. I succeeded where others believed I would fail. Oh I can't wait for that moment. And that moment WILL come. First I have to put in the hard work.

So here I come papers and quizzes, cuz I'm going to conquer your ass!!!!
