last of the random posts

I'm still in short attention span mode, so here are just a few things I've pondered lately:


Did you know that if you want to buy a haunted house there's an actual website (I'm sure there are more) that advertises haunted houses to buy and sell? Did you know that if your paranormal obsessed twelve year old finds out about this he all of a sudden becomes very interested in the inner workings of the real estate market? And that even though he's afraid to go to the upstairs bathroom by himself, thinks the idea of living in a house inhabited by a poltergeist named Big Bruno sounds like a great idea?


I had a slow moment at work Tuesday and logged onto Yahoo! only to find a list of Low Stress Careers for a more holistic lifestyle. Naturally, I clicked the link and almost spewed coffee onto the keyboard when I noticed that nursing was on the list. I would have shot them off a blistering email, but all the cops dragging in the bleeding from the head (and fighting like a maniac) suspected rapist kept me busy for a while. Who puts these lists together anyway?


On the agenda for Wednesday: Sleep. Sleep some more. Eat something really yummy and dreadfully bad for me. Do lovely indulgent things to make me feel more like a human and less like roadkill. (If I can stop looking like roadkill, so much the better).


Also on the agenda for Wednesday: Make some lists. Typical RC lists, to tell the truth. I'm mapping out my life. One list at a time. Why? Because I'm starting to look at the clean slate that is my future...and actually look forward to it.

So glad you have a day off. I've been researching violence against nurses in the workplace. It is THE most underreported types of assaults. Quite interesting. Read this nurse's April 16th post
http://nurse-ratcheds.blogspot.com/. It's hair-raising and despicable. Then tell me again about the stressless life of a nurse. Who were these people? I don't work with them.

Happy Nurse's Week despite it all!

You have had a hell of a week. Enjoy your Wednesday!
I think you will enjoy your new life....... once you get the rest thing sorted out. Like you say, lots to look forward to.

that sounds good RC. Get some sleep before you do those lists thogh will you?!

Well, I'm interested in going with the realtor to see/experience the Big Bruno poltergeist.

I don't know where you got this attitude about nursing...when you get to see guys in crotchless pink panties with drills, and sometimes tie them up. The magazine obviously has never shadowed you in the ED.

Aha! I see sleep on Wednesday my crystal ball. And napping. And calling out for supper....Wait. Is that pizza or Chinese?

I also see a realtor selling your house for billions of dollars once the prospective buyers get a gander at the mysterious wireless connection.

Have lovely dreams and sleep and rest!

At the risk of repeating myself, if you don't start looking after yourself you may not have a future to look forward to.

Cheery soul aren't I?

Hang in there RC - we're all pulling for you here in blogland...

Clean slate, I like that!
Rest and take care of you!!!

ped crossing said...

Good job you, for taking care of you. The only thing you forgot to mention was to lose the phone so no one can call you in.

Happy, restful, list making!

Kaycie said...

Hey! What does Laurie know? I wanna know, too!

Obviously, that list was compiled by someone who is not a nurse, not related to a nurse, and in fact, does not know a nurse personally.

You're right to look forward to your future. I was never happier than I was after my divorce was final, I met my husband and we formed our family.

I hope your Wednesday revives you completely, body and soul. Take care of yourself.

hope you are having a real quiet relaxing day off and chilling. Make sure and have a few more very soon.

Oh, I see I was at the wrong post a while ago. I thought you had not written anything for a bit and I was worried a little bit, but you are okay.

A clean slate sounds good, do you have any spare ones of those laying around. I would like to wipe mine clean also. Wish that I could, but then I would want to leave some odds and ends.

Oh well, you are okay then?

the last item on the list made me smile for you....

Marti said...

Sounds like a great day, RC! I hope whatever you are eating today, somewhere along the way it contains chocolate.

I am glad you are making a list and liking it. I am also glad you have a day off.

Hugs!

The power isn't in writing the list... it is the ticking off of the list!

Enjoy your day off. You've had it coming and you need it.

I am not going to tell Melanie about that website or Big Bruno will be living with us.

Take care

XOXO
