WOW....What a week! I worked in the pre-op area for two days and then the recovery room for the other two days and I feel like a whipped puppy! Now, don't get me wrong, I love doing what I do. I'm 56 and I can run with the big dogs and the young ones too, but for some reason, this week there must have been a full moon every evening!! And like every hospital in the country...we have a nursing shortage. Our hospital system has a hiring freeze on because of the economy but it sure would be nice to have additional help! A coworker of mine always says, "They want champagne service on a beer budget!". LOL!! I am very thankful that I at least have a job & I thank God every day that He has allowed me to do what I do....but goodness gracious....I hope it doesn't kill me before I get to retire!!!
I mean...I have all this stitching planned. I keep buying charts, threads, fabric...all just waiting for the time I retire (I certainly don't have time to do it now). I have arranged and rearranged my supplies for easy access just in case my eyes & my mind start to go!! I have antique picture frames poking out all over the place just waiting for those prized reproduction samplers that I am going to make!
This evening, don't ask me why....but I decided to clean out my sewing room. The winter blahs have been around way too long....time to go lighter and brighter! Tomorrow I am heading off to Joann Fabrics to find some floral fabric to make curtains. then I think I might even try making a skirt to go around my sewing table for a little extra flair! Of course...this all sounds really good tonight...tomorrow will probably be a different story!
