Happy St. Patrick's Day

         Instead of green Iowa is celebrating with a fresh layer of snow this evening.  Can we say bummer.  I can.  Anyway Happy St' Patrick's Day J-land.  Cheers to you.   Now if you know me you know I like a good beer once in a while but I can honestly say I have never had a green beer.  I have no plans to break that tradition.  However.....I am going out for an Irish meal and a nice Widmers.

           This was the busiest weekend I have spend at work in years.  It was emotionally and physically exhausting.  In fact....I just woke up!  Usually on my night off I sleep until about 1 and that way I can go back to bed later.  Well I woke up and checked out the clock, 4:15.  And I ache all over like I have been hit by a truck.  What a week.

       I had such wonderful patients though and had the rare pleasure of taking care of the same group all 4 nights.  One patient told me, In this nightmare I am living right now you are my only bright spot.  Isn't that sweet!  Made me want to cry.  I am glad I made this difficult time a little easier for him.

        Well, I have to get ready to go.  Another exciting entry aye.  Have a wee bit of fun today you all.

Enjoy your Irish Dinner out Julie.

You must have been really tired to sleep so long.  Bless you!
You are such a lovely woman to so many poorly folk in your working life.  You are simply the best!

Enjoy yourself.

Hope you get some more much needed rest!
