off the hook

today i was tentatively scheduled to work on my unit pending large numbers of injured soldiers. i called last night to see if they needed me and we agreed i would ring again when i got up in the morning at 6am.  the charge nurse called me back at 10pm and said they were getting an admission so they did need me…off to bed i went and got up at 6 thinking that i didn’t have anything in the kitchen to take for my lunch…when i worked shifts, i always made my lunch the night before…now either i work at home and nibble all day or i have meetings where i get served silly little sandwiches.

at 6.05am when i was waiting for the water for my coffee to boil…sleepily thinking~~ shit! i have nothing for lunch…the phone rang! they didn’t need me after all!! i did agree to be on call for the day~~thanks, martin!

everytime the phone rang i was sure they were calling me to come in but nope…just puttered around on some new power point slides that will be reworked and critiqued….like these

tomorrow i am going to a conference, it has something to do with preventing infection, it will be held at church house. it’s very near westminster abbey so nice neighborhood.

i was just browsing some blogs, i look at ones of interest to me…gardening, nursing, crochet and stained glass~~for the first time in a long while i was somewhat inspired to do somethingt~~to be creative. i did notice that it was still light out at 5pm tonight~~that’s a move in the right direction!

only 27 days til matt visists!!!

One thought on “off the hook

  1. I am so glad you didn’t get called in to work…

    I went out and had a look at my ‘garden’ on Sunday…and was suddenly inspired to do something with it. No firms ideas yet, but I’m at least going to try to clean it up – I noted daffs and bluebells sprouting back there, so something is growing! Clean it up and maybe throw a bunch of seeds around and see what comes up.

    It was still light out yesterday at 5:30 when I left work…it does lighten one’s spirits, doesn’t it!
