i'm older,they say everyone has that one thing that gets to them...the friday breakfast, and upcoming stuff.....

my one thing isn't age. i feel like finally i have gotten old enough that i cannot be as easily discounted as before....


i am 27 as of last Thursday, and i had a great day:) i got to spend it at home, relaxing with my guys, and then hubby took me out to dinner. but one little stop first......where i got this done....


i love it, and no it didn't hurt too bad....not at all what i thought it would be....

and yes, i am refferring to that little nubby part of my ear which now bears a ring:)



last week at work, they hit me with a double whammy......i got to work and found out i had to go on an ambulance transport to take a patient to another campus of our hospital. i don't mind doing it when i have advance notice....but i guess they probably forgot to let me know...meaning no motion sickness meds.....riding in the back of a bouncy trouncy ambulance for an hour total isn't my idea of fun....


they say everyone has that one thing that they can't tolerate in nursing, for some it is mucous, some-vomit.....i have yet to find mine. i can seriously tolerate changing a colostomy bag and then eat oatmeal.


so i am getting ready to leave, i was innocently called to a room to examine a specimen.


i know you are thinking that i should have known then, but this isn't a rare occurence at work, so i thought nothing of it.


i got to the room and the bedpan was sitting htere and in the hand of the girl who called me was a smallish tongue depressor.


and on the tongue depressor was a wriggling 10 inch long worm. and the worm came from the patient.


or rather the patient behind.


i looked....


blinked...


looked again...


and promptly blacked out.


thankgoodness it was only for a second or two, but none-the-less, i believe body bugs are my thing.


so, ahem....


allow me to compose myself for a minute because just the memory is getting to me....


i wish i had some super exciting events to share with you, but life has been good, normal.
I had a calss about strokes today and then went out to lunch with my boss. We had some super yummy sangria and i didn't feel at all weird that i would drink with my boss:) she is freakin awesome...
i only have 2 nights to work this week, then to my mothers house for my birthday breakfast on friday. i am hoping it will be a good morning.
i am nervous though. my grandmother and i have always been vlose and she always thought of me as her youngest daughter. she made me french toast on french bread for my birthday every single year of my life. she died 5 years ago, and i miss her every day. we only lived 5 moinutes apart and i was much closer to her than others in my family. so when she died, my mom promised to still make me that birthday breakfast. so far, she has every year.
the reason for my nervousness is, i haven't dealt with either my grandmothers death and also haven't been open with my mother about how her actions affect me and make me feel. i just can't. i always look at peole that say that and think, sure you can just say it. but....
i can't.
so we will see. next thursday my two best girlfriends are taking me out for a pedicure and birthday dinner and then sometime in the next week we are having a goodbye celebration for all the graduating residents at the hospital. the party isn't at the hospital, the residents are.
so some fun stuff coming up.
and as always vacation is in august, just 2 months away, and you all know how gluttonous we are for vacation.
my friend shannon over at it's trickey just got back from a beautiful vacation, she has promised lots of pictures so check her out here .....
so, i hope you are all having a great start to your week, thanks for always being there to listen:) i am thinking about installment 2 of dom's story.......you can go here to catch up before i post the next part....
love and hugs,
jineen

Love the hip ear ring! Sorry about the blacking out. I feel like fainting at least once a week. Haven't passed out in a while though.

Shannon said...

Ouch - on the ring! But, very cute!

And OMG about the worms. Ewww!

Try to enjoy your breakfast, let us know how it goes.

Cammie said...

Happy Belated Birthday! Did your Ear-ring hurt? My friend got that done and it was very painful for her (I almost passed out watching it!)

The Rambler said...

Oh my dear...forgive my absence from your wonderful blog.

Vacation and craziness.

Happy Belated or as we say here in Hawaii...

Hauoli La Hanau Jineen!

And btw...I sorta blacked out myself for a second when you mentioned that bug (shuddering) thing.
