Today was one of those days. Nothing seemed to be going right, time flew by way too quickly, and one of my patients wasn't doing too well.
Nothing that I did, he was sent from another hospital in less than stellar condition.
I still insist that they should make Nursing students become a patient for a day to see what it's like from the other side of the fence. I had back surgery a few years back, and I always treat everyone how I'd like to be treated, not how i was treated, but that's another story.
Anyway, on my way home, I was thinking of a way to relax once I got home. I turned up the stereo, and sang along to The Weakerthans as loud as I could, and rocked out at every single red light I hit.
That was it. Just what I needed. And it was free!! The music put me in such a good mood, I actually slowed down just to finish a wicked air guitar solo...
By the way, tomorrow I have to attend an education day at work. This is a mandatory session, where they show us the latest policies, procedures, blah, blah, blah. I'm just pumped that I get to wear jeans tomorrow. OR scrubs just aren't that flattering, although it's like I get to go to work everyday in my p.j.'s.
They should make that a rule for everyone.
I've got big plans for the weekend, how 'bout you? Good company, good food, and maybe even a drink or two...
