Starting a new week

I wish I was sitting next to that campfire right now.  I need a little bit of R&R.  After the stress of last week and then working hard all weekend.  I worked as the Unit Assistant both days.  That involves passing breakfast trays out.  Cleaning up, going around and making beds and passing pads (diapers).  There were alot of beds not made and I was almost ready to scream every time I saw another stripped bed!  There was a medical emergency yesterday afternoon.  I was calling and calling and out looking for a nurse and they finally came.  The lady was unresponsive and very pale.  Her blood pressure was off and her oxygen was low.  She came around after a few minutes and we got her in bed.  I think she will be alright, although it gave her husband a scare!  I was glad to get home last night.  Of course then I ended up arguing with my son.  He was being very rude and talking down to me.  Acting just like my ex.  Pissed me right off.  I told him if I talked like that to my Mom I would of gotten smacked.  He said go ahead, child abuser etc...  You can't get away with that now.  Grrrrr, I wanted to smack him, thats for sure!  He did apologize though, I guess he was afraid he would be grounded.  He should of been.  I got up early today, I had an angry dream.  I was working with my co-worker Sheri and we were dealing with some old guy.  He was getting fresh with me and somehow ended up sitting on my lap!  It was funny at that point because I was pretending to be Santa and asking him what he wanted for Christmas.  He said for me to have his kids!  Well that part of the dream ended and Sheri was walking away from me.  I still needed her help and was waiting and then decided to go downstairs to the office.  When I got there it was full of nursing students.  One of them was in my spot and my co-worker Hope said "tough sh**".  I ended up stomping out of the office and waiting in the very crowded lobby (why crowded, I don't know) for them to leave.  I also had called them a bad word before I left too.  It continues on from there, but I woke up angry!  So I hope my week goes better.  We have been getting pulled nearly everyday for patient care.  Its getting pretty old.  I know thats what is more important, I just like knowing what to expect when I go in to work everyday.  I like routine.  At least we don't have to do mandatory overtime!  The other CNA's do and I don't know how they do it..  I can do a 12 hr shift but thats all my body can handle. 

Ok enough complaining!  Time to get ready for work! 

Hi Mom!  Love you!

Sounds like they need to get more workers there. Being stressed already made your work more difficult for you. Yes, if your son acted that way toward you it would have been a good idea to ground him. I sometimes think being grounded is worse on the parents than the children but they should know who is in control. Those dreams were weird. I believe being under stress does that to a person at times and you were too tired to rest good. Hope your work goes better today. Hugs, Helen

Oh that is a nice peaceful graphic - I like it alot.  I guess parents are pretty helpless these days with discipline, that is a shame.  Nice he apologized though.  Your job sounds hectic and a 12 hour shift..ugh - I don't even know if I could do a 12 hour shift!
