Weekend wrap up

I don’t have a lot to report this weekend.

I worked both Saturday and Sunday, and despite 95% of my weekend being pretty darn good, the nurse that chewed my butt for THEIR lack of planning sorta sunk in, and hit me hard as the weekend wrapped up.  Somehow, it’s my problem that they failed to finish their competency paperwork in a timely manner, therefore locking them out of the testing they needed to perform.  Yet anyone who works in healthcare knows that it’s ALL about rules, regulations, and proper training to keep our patients safe.

Yet I don’t have a BSN in my signature block, so this nurse decided to let me have it.  I kept my composure on the phone, apologizing profusely for a whole lot of nothing that I did wrong, and hung up the phone in tears.  I chose to let this drain my joy…but only briefly.  I drove home in silence, and after my 30 minute commute I was calm and welcomed by my family.  Life was good again.  I dropped my purse on the counter, gave hugs to my youngest who had spent the night at her friend’s house the night before and poured myself in to my welcoming bed.  I slept for TWO hours, and it was glorious.

I woke up to my hubby and youngest cooking our traditional Sunday Supper.  A dinner I normally always prepare.  But they stepped in and saved the day.

Check it out:

Cabbage salad with cilantro dressing, paired with a yummy passion fruit cocktail!

I finished the night with day 11 of my ab challenge, a hot shower, and time spent in front of the fire.  Tomorrow I have at least a 16 hour work day on deck, so I will postpone my first run of 2015 until Tuesday.

Lastly I was featured on one of my favorite blogs today!  You can see it here!

My goal?  2 miles on the treadmill.  Who wants to join me? What’s your favorite running songs?  I need to update my play list!

Have a great week, Movers!
