A whole lot of nuttin'

That's literally what I've been doing since I got out of school.  Ok, that's not completely true, we did go to Lake Winnie  which was really fun.  But unfortunately I forgot my stupid phone so I didn't get any pictures to post on my other blog.  Besides that day though I have basically been a super slug.  Today I stayed in bed until I picked Alei up at 3:00.  Isn't that crazy?  I can't help it.  I KNOW I have stuff I COULD be doing, but it's all yucky stuff.  I mean do I really want to clean my bathroom?  Noooo.  Although I know it NEEDS cleaning terribly.  But I guess I'm just using this time to decompress after my semester.  I'll get it moving soon I'm sure.  Guess what I did do though?  I got out my Patho book & workbook, sat down at the kitchen table & then changed my mind b/c I felt guilty b/c I had other stuff I should be doing.  But even though I did get up from the kitchen table, I don't recall if I actually did the things I was supposed to be doing.
Anyway, I'm not going to beat myself up too badly though b/c my kids will be out of school in two weeks & then I'm sure I'll be non-stop.  I can't WAIT to hit the lake.  I love the lake.  But, don't get me wrong, I AM going to do that workbook this summer.  There are many concepts that I just don't get.  I suck terribly at figuring out what is wrong with a patient.  Yes I know that a certain disease causes certain symptoms, but if you give me those symptoms in a scenario & then tell me to figure out what's wrong with the person, FORGET IT, not gonna happen.  And that kind of worries me.  I read this really great blog from an ER nurse & I'm always thinking "How does she know all this".  I guess one day I'll know more, but that day seems like a long way off.  So until then I'm going to work on my Patho workbook & hope some more of this stuff starts to click.....Ah school, how I miss thee....
