Whew...what a long day.
I worked my usual 8 hours at the hospital today, which in itself wasn't that bad at all. I was busy, but I got a lot of experience in dosing TPN's and writing orders and progress notes in the patient charts. It made me feel very professional, like I was *finally* doing something that matters, instead of following around doctors and med students, or doing stupid patient case presentations.
What really drained me today was the lecture on meds that I gave at an Alzheimer's Support Group for Caregivers meeting tonight. I ended up talking over an hour, and staying there answering questions for another hour after that. It made me feel really good when they thanked me and said that I'd been very helpful, but it really sapped all the energy out of me to lead a group for that long, and try and stay animated and perky and outgoing.
So then I didn't go straight home after the lecture. Instead I went shopping and stocked up on junk food and Diet Coke, for sirenprincess's visit tomorrow night. I can't wait! I miss her, and we're going to see Pirates of the Caribbean together. I also bought gummy worms to eat in the theater, so I'm all set to see sexy pirate-Orlando Bloom swordfighting in a flowing open shirt. *wipes away drool*
It's getting late here, and I still have to fold laundry, pick up the apartment, take a shower, and play with the kitty so she'll settle down when it's time to go to bed.
Better go now...but first, a quiz, swiped from sirenprincess:
