I'm reserving judgment until I have a few more night shifts under my
|At least I'm putting my twitter skills to use, right?|
Do you know how much it hurts to stand still? And I'm not just talking about mentally painful (which it is - I have a perpetual to-do list that contains no less than 7,492,618 items and wasted time kills me). But I mean physically painful. Since the end of my shift Friday morning I've been nursing (haha) a very tight, stiff lower back from all that standing around.
On the positive side, I got to try out a few new nursing skills and didn't suck at all of them. For the record, blood draws are fairly easy and IVs suck. Hopefully I'll have better news on that front next time. Also, my mom sent me this:
Yup, a sleep mask. But not just any sleep mask - the Temper-Pedic Sleep Mark. AKA most amazing sleep mask ever! It is super soft with an adjustable velcro back so it will always fit just right. There is even padding underneath the eye sockets so that the mask isn't pressed against your eyelashes. Trust me when I say that no light got in these bad boys, which made them perfect for sleeping the day away after a trying inaugural night shift.
Tweet me some love Monday night if you're up - I'll be back on night shift!
