OOPS I did it again…

December 28

Somehow a month has passed – where any of those days went I can’t say for sure. The last weeks of class were extremely busy with ACLS certification, as well as classes on shock. Throw into that working as much as possible to make Christmas better for the kids AND trying to get clinicals knocked out so I don’t get behind on those and the days just flew by.

There were a few stretches in there where work/clinicals went on for 96 consecutive hours… needless to say I’ve been whooped. The break from classes and homework were right on time allowing me to squeeze in more work and clinicals before Christmas.

Pushing myself so hard I expected it to be me that broke down, at some point my eyes refusing to open to the alarm clocks beckon, or just getting sick from being so worn down. Instead it was my truck…

While driving to work yesterday morning the driveshaft of my truck literally fell out on the highway.

I'm pretty sure THAT isn't conducive to driving

Being afoot has given me some unexpected time off from work and clinicals, and while I have a 500 page cardiology book to work through (that’s the next 5 weeks of classes) I am going to take advantage of the time to get some writing done. Yes Mom I will study too I’m already 1/4 of the way through the Cardiology book.

What most people don’t understand is that pecking on these keys is a therapeutic release for me, and I have been missing it greatly. So for the next few days I will be taking advantage of the new found time to catch up on posts and get the pent up stress from school, work, the holidays and yes, even broken down vehicles out.

I have been sitting on several topics for posts, waiting for the opportunity to allow my brain to put together a semi cohesive thought.

If not now, when?

    Yeah, I hear ya.

    I was particularly impressed with your phrase, “I’ve been whooped.”

    Where I come from it would have translated into, “I’ve done had the lick.”

    I know just exactly what you mean.
