Allow me to vent

All right, this is for you Meg to add to your anti-"my life is perfect look at my pretty blog" collection. I had a bad night at work. Is it possible to love and hate your job at the same time? I love being a nurse. I love medicine. But what has happened to our society? When did we breed the attitude of "entitlement." Some nights we're never fast enough, never babying our whiny patients enough, never enough. I am a nurse. I am not a waitress, you are not in a hotel or a restaurant.
Sunday night was the first night with decent snow on the roads and we had 1 accident that sent 9 people to the hospital, and more than one of them lost their life. At the same time, I had a patient truly say to me, "It's not my fault the weather is sh***y and you all get 9 traumas, I should not have to wait!" Really? Is that where we are as humans? Now I am just frustrated and clearly know that that represents a small population but really, it's ridiculous.
Okay, I'm done venting. Like I said, I love my job and wouldn't trade it for anything but this has just been one of those nights that wears me down and it helps to write it out. Thanks for reading my rambling. I promise more positive posts will follow soon :)

I love visits!

So my friend Stephanie came for a visit this weekend! We worked together in the ER at St. Marks in Utah and I just love her! She got me this awesome chocolate strawberry boquet on my last day
She was out visiting family in Ann Arbor and I stole her for a few days. It was so fun to hang out with an old friend (or any girl for that matter) and catch up and participate in my favoite passtime, shopping. When we were looking at buying our house I remember showing her the pictures and we always joked that our guest room would be her room and sure enough, she was our first friend who said she would come visit and really did. Anyway, we loved having her and hope to see her again next summer, love ya Steph!
