When it rains...it pours! - This is me bitching about my week...

This week has been a bad one. Maybe the worst week of 2006. As you already know I lost my wallet which was the worst thing that happened Tuesday. Monday at work was SUUUUUUPER busy. I had 2 really sick patients along with other needy patients which had me on my feet all night, in the end 1 of my patients had to transferred to CCU at 6:30am which is the second BUSIEST time of the shift. Needless to say I left late Tuesday morning from work. Last night more sick people, more running on my feet all night long. It wasn't as bad as the night before so I had a chance to start my work early, one of my IV pumps goes off and I go into the room to discover my patient unresponsive and pulseless *sigh* there goes my entire morning. I call a code (my first) and after it was over I was 90 minutes behind! Let me tell you initiating a code and helping with a code is TOTALLY different. It's like I forgot everything and I'm usually really good under pressure I don't know what happened :-( I was pretty bummed the entire morning. I left late AGAIN and instead of going to the DMV first thing I went to Kelly's to take a nap (he lives close to the DMV.)

Ready for the icing on my cake?

I lay down and take my glasses off and put them on the bed next to me. Kelly gets me food so I go into the kitchen to eat. Kyle is begging so Kelly puts him in the bedroom so I can eat without a cold nose on my leg. He doesn't bother me but apparently it bothers Kelly that he begs. Fifteen minutes later I hear Kyle at the door so I open it so he can come out and I decide to go in to take a nap. I straighten out the blanket and that's when I see my glasses chewed up beyond repair. Of all the things he could have chewed (I had my cell phone and nintendo ds on the bed also) he chose the glasses!!!! I could have kicked him but instead I laughed because of course I was tired and why shouldn't this happen? I have no access to my money and now I need to buy something I need. *sigh* I did get new glasses and my temporary license. I like my new glasses and now I feel complete again. I'm totally blind without my glasses and can't drive.

I'm going back to work tomorrow and I'm just hoping I don't regret not calling out. My mom told me to just stay home before something worse happens LOL. I'm going to take a proper rest. My feet hurt and all I really want to do is rest. TTFN

Sounds like we have both had a bad week!! I am so sorry to hear about your wallet being lost. I can totally understand about the glasses as I am the same way, I can not do anything without them. Very lucky he did not get kicked! At least you got some more though. I do hope that things get better for you!!!

Oh Mercy, I'm so sorry to hear about your awful week. I know how it feels when you lose your wallet, it has happened to me before and I just worry and worry. It's not the money, it's just the contents like cards, driver's licence, all that kind of stuff; it's painful starting from scratch. I hope things turn around for you soon enough.

And about the glasses, oh boy, I swear I will cook the doggies for dinner if they ever did that, LOL. Somone will really have to hold me back! Thankfully, it hasn't happened to me yet, but they have destroyed MANY other things before. I'm glad you could get a laugh out of it and at least, you got a new pair of glasses.

Well, I hope next week turns out better for you, have a good weekend!
