Losin it in Paradise

Decided to get a little help from my doctor

If you want to do something you’ll find a way. If you don’t want to, you’ll find an excuse.” –source unknown As you can read by tonight’s title, I decided to talk to a doc.  Being a nurse of course I don’t have a family doctor.  I just usually grab whatever hospitalist or ER doc […]

Sunday night, my last shift this weekend

Well here it is Sunday at 2am, and my last of three night shifts.  It has been a pretty crusing three shifts.  Just the usual BS, nothing major.    Car accidents, babies born, lives saying goodbye, nothing traumatic, so just the kind of shifts I deserved after my last set. We did have a bad drowning […]


Well I am back to work tonight.  Had two really nice days off, planted some orchids, and worked around the house.  Spent some time on the computer and just vegged and got my mind back in working order. I was really good on my diet this two days off.  I usually have a lot of […]

A peaceful day

Today was one of the days that I cried all the way home.  But it is also another day.  I learned an important lesson when my mom died last year.  I learned that the world does not stop because you grieve.  I remember after she died and I was flying back to Canada to be […]

Food for thought

“If you want to do something you’ll find a way. If you don’t want to, you’ll find an excuse.” –source unknown Here I am at work, and thought I would share with you the kind of night it is turning out to be.  I have had a couple days of ranting and raving and feeling sorry […]

Monday night, I survived my weekend off!

“If you want to do something you’ll find a way. If you don’t want to, you’ll find an excuse.” –source unknown Very profound!  I like that saying and think I will use it as a source on inspiration for me. I am very good at excuses, especially when it come to my diet.  Funny, I […]

Sunday is just sunday

Well I survived my melt down yesterday, and re read my blog, and surprised myself with the hatred that came thru.  But I guess it is a good thing it came thru the blog and not thru my mouth to my hubby.   Feeling are allowed but cruelty isn’t. I did end up going to town […]

A glorious Saturday off

Have today off work, slept like the dead after I got off my 16 hour shift yesterday morning.  Slept til 5pm, then back in bed by 11pm and slept til 10am this morning. Not working so not sure what to do with myself.  My hubby of course is being a pain in the ass as […]

Another long busy night at work

OMG, I am so tired.  It is only 2am and I have another 5 hours to go.  I have been here for 11 hours already.  These 16 hour shifts kill me. And of course they also play havoc with my diet.  Too easy to just pick and run, pick and run.  I did good til […]

One day at a time

Well today was a much better day.  I managed to stay away from junk food, drink my water and even exercise……..I HATE EXERCISE! I had to get up early and drive to town to teach CPR, yes I do that in addition to my regular full time job.  But that is okay, I love doing […]
