So happy to have a small break...

Can I just say how happy I was walking out of class today?  It was about 68 degrees, the sun was shining, the wind was blowing slightly & I was officially wearing flip flops for the first time this spring and most of all I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO GET A PATIENT!!!!!!!!  I am soo super happy that I had Med/Surg as my first rotation during the cold part of the semester.  Now instead of being stuck in the hospital for the next two days (like those poor suckers who have Med/Surg now) I am FREEE to take my books to the park tomorrow & study in the gorgeous sunshine.  I can sleep in for the next two days (would have been three but I'm signed up on Thursday to work the health fair at school) and basically enjoy this spring weather.  God is so good.  Sometimes blessings come in the form of something so small as to get the rotation you really want.  Yay!

I'm also loving that we have NO tests this week, unfortunately though that just means that after this week we basically have back to back tests until the semester is over.  Oh well, I will just enjoy this week & study as much as I can.  It's getting close!  And another great thing I learned recently was that this is the LAST semester we have to do written careplans!!!!!!!!!!!  YESSSS!  Can I just say how much I hate writing careplans?  And yes I totally understand the reason for them, but no matter the reason, I am thrilled beyond thrilled that my next 2 semesters involve NO written careplans! As London would say "Yay me!!"


  1. LOL I loath school care plans too! We only had to do two this semester, and if we got good marks on them we did nothave to do anymore, it was a nice break. Enjoy your bit of time off!

    1. Lucky!! I wish we had only had to do two!! But I only have one more to do and then I am done with them FOREVER! Unless of course we have to do them in grad school. Please Lord I hope not.

  2. Hi Candi!

    So glad you are enjoying a much needed break.

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're having trouble commenting to my blog. I wish I knew why but as far as I can tell, nothing has changed. The only issue I've had with this blog all along is that I cannot 'reply' to comments. Rather, I have to create an entirely separate comment- have been trying to fix this, but no luck so far.

    Let me know if you're still having issues.

  3. Hated, hated, hated careplans! During Practicum, we had to do a careplan everyday for at least two of our patients. We had 120 hours of Practicum, so I did a blue million of them. I never understood that because PN's don't create careplans, RN's do. I know, I know....it's to help me understand how to think critically.
    Enjoy the sun while you can.
