Rodeo+Slob week

February 28, 2013
Week 1 of 12 hour shifts started with a trip to the Rodeo with Cody and my great friend Cara and her fiance, Jeremy, who we LOVE! We had such a blast with them and I stuffed my face. I don't know what I was thinking, but I broke my clean eating diet for a day a made a slob of myself. I literally ate: a burrito, a funnel cake, my first ever Sonoran dog, and ice cream. It was a joke. I paid for it when I was up sick all night. Lesson learned. The Rodeo was good this year though, and we saw a really awesome bull rider! 

The next day I worked my first ever night shift, so I tried to just get prepared. I made a snack to take with me, worked out, showered, and napped before going in. It went pretty well, although I owe all the credit to the vast amounts of coffee I consumed that night. I was off the rest of the week and I go back in tomorrow and Saturday nights. So naturally I have been being super lazy, although productive. So far I have run errands, gone to the gym a few times, filed my taxes (by myself- for the first time, like a big girl), gone shopping, had a pedicure, gone to fro-yo with my friend Leslie and her bestie Alicia, had lunch with Cody, and gone to happy hour with my friends Haley and Cara! It's been a pretty good week or two and I am really enjoying 3, 12 hour shifts as opposed to 5, 8 hour shifts. 

I can promise I am going to soak up all of my time tomorrow before going into work, including getting a fresh manicure! 

Enjoy your week!

EPIC fail

February 17, 2013
I realize after writing a post about how I am going to be better about updating, I probably should actually be better about updating. EPIC fail. Honestly, all I have been doing is working and trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can from the experienced nurses I am with before I am let loose on my own! Therefore, I have very little free time for fun. However, I start my one-on-one preceptorship next week where I work with the same nurse on their schedule for about 3 weeks and then I am officially on my own. What is my point you ask? I am going to 3, 12 hour shifts starting a week from today! WOO to free time! I'll be working the night shift, which means 7pm-7am and am trying to figure out the best plan for switching back and forth. I have a tentative plan to "nap" the day I go in from about 2-5pm and try a coffee around midnight, then come home and sleep a full 7-8 hours after my shift if I'm working a second night, or just 4-5 hours if I'm off the next day. Hopefully it will work out well!

In the last 2 months, other than working, I have just been shopping and organizing. I made a budget for myself, cleaned out my drawers, organized my makeup and jewelry and bought some new clothes. I have been going to the gym more regularly which has been good, and Cody and I went to Sedona! I'll try to post next week as I want to go to the rodeo next weekend! Sorry I've been such as slacker!
