current mood: contemplative
I cannot believe that another year is coming to a close. Where has all my time gone?
I am soooooooooo behind in everything. I think that I have become the world's absolute biggest procastinator.
Actually, I am in overwhelm and therefore, don't do anything.
My old DON just called to see if I'd be interested in returning to work on a flex program. NOT!!! I read the posts in cynical nurse and thank God that I am a stay at home procastinator, grandma (Mom), wife, quilter, and self-employed nurse consultant/educator who works when the hell I feel like it and then not that often.
For 30 years nursing was my life. My job was my life. I had no identity. I was simply put a nurse. Now I actually have friends that aren't nurses and we talk about everything. I do digress sometimes and discuss gross things (to them) over meals and have to be reminded that they are not nurses and therefore can't tolerate gross subjects.
I wish that I could write something humorous, entertaining and enlightening, but ....
I did go see my PCP last week and chewed him out. He kept referring to his medical assistant as a nurse. I just hate that....one of my pet peeves.
