I was SO GLAD to leave work this morning. It was another crazy night, literally, as the night ended with a patient having severe altered mental status and injuring a nurse. Dealing with that took from 6:45 am til 8:15 am and emotionally I was just DONE with this week. It was the best feeling knowing that I would now have 2 days off. Funny (but not really) thing is that it was one year ago that a nurse in ICU got seriously injured when a patient became aggressive. Thankfully this year the injury seems minor, but still! I don’t think I want to work this date next year!
Bed was wonderful.
I woke up and made a super simple, but super enjoyable meal…veggie burgers and fries. Eaten while watching House of Cards. And then after eating, Kimm looked at me with that look…the ICE CREAM look 🙂 Yep, we did it…ice cream! And it was SO GOOD…a new flavor for us…Oat of this Swirled (Ben and Jerry…cinnamon ice cream with a oatmeal cookie swirl, with fudge flakes!)
A nap after dinner, then dishes, and then…GAME NIGHT!!!
I knew that I wanted our first night after a long week to be fun…not just lounging around. So we made a plan to have a game night. We played our new card word game, Quiddler. It was fun! The goal was to make words each hand (with each hand with more cards). I won two hands and Kimm won one. We broke out the wine, the chips and dip and the M&M’s so by the time the evening was over we were laughing like crazy. It felt SO GOOD.
What also felt so good was going up to bed and getting to sleep 🙂
Meditations from the Mat (Day 155)…
~~on the mat we learn to confront, experience, understand, accept, live with and let go of the difficulties of our lives….in doing so we learn to live fully, one day at a time
Things making me happy today: done with my long stretch at work!!!, simple meal of veggie burgers and fries, game night — Quiddler, wine, chips and dip, M&M’s, BED!!!, having off!!!
