sleepy, sleepy, sleepy

if i was a dwarf guess which one i'd be?

as i sit here and type i can barely keep my eyes open and for good reason. I have barely had 3 hours of sleep in the last twenty four hours and have worked way too much in the past three days, not to mention two therapy appts and a dentist appt.

have you ever been so tired and just waiting for the time to pass so that you can get to bed and it seems to drag on and on?

one patient is screaming out my balls are cold, another is askign for gum or coffee and yet another one wants endless supplies of pain medicine. my coworker and i were cleaning up a particularly stinky mess and i was talkig aloud, wondering what is it that made me choose this profession? what made me decide to clean asses for a living and stay up all night to do so?

so my question for you is this, what is the best/worst part of your job and what brought you to your current position?

I think the worst part is when we have group nights and kids in the receiving center, and we have to keep them in a tiny little office.

The worst part of my job is knowing that I can do something more. More technical, more "me." Also, having to answer the same questions over and over gets old too.

The best part of my job is getting off at 3pm and knowing that I left work at work. My husband often brings work stuff home. I'm glad that I don't have that option!

How did I get here? My dream job (at the time) was laying people off and according to seniority I was next to go if there was another round.
