Happy Hump Day!

Well, I'm on to Day 3 of FLYLady.  Its pretty simple, I'm kind of thinking of beginning Day 4 to get ahead! I still have a messy house, but my kitchen is clean!  I still have a lot of work ahead of me with getting my shit together and Finally Loving Myself, which is what FLY stands for on FLYLady. 

Well, I had a long day at work. I stayed too late!  Its just so hard to get enough patients in when you only work 8 hours a day.  There are too many patients and too many Doctors thinking that we need to see people stat!  Usually not the case.  Oh, and getting pooped on by patients that are returning to a nursing home, why did I have to evaluate them? I probably should of just skipped them cuz they were out of the hospital by the time I left form work.  I've become so unfeeling at times when working in a huge hospital with soooo many different types of patient, probably due to the harsh reality of what really happens in health care. However, I still love my job, I did have a patient who was very excited that I got them walking today when they haven't walked in about 2 weeks because they were confined to their bed in the ICU!  She even remembered who I was! That is very exciting when you work on the neuro floors and most people don't remember things after you leave the room.

Day 2 of FlyLady

I think I forgot to put a link to this FlyLady site

So, Day 2 is just getting fully dressed for the day first thing in the morning.  I pretty much have that one down because I have to work 5 days a week by 7 am so I'm dressed pretty quickly after I get out of bed.  However, weekends are a different story, I like to stay in my pjs and robe and sit on the deck with breakfast.  I can take 1 day off a week at least!

Well, I'm also suppose to keep my sink clean and shiny, and right now I have it all cleaned, the counters are cleared of dishes and are clean! So, doing well there! I just need to really get the rest of my house in shape, but that's why its baby steps!! Although, I do have a guest coming Saturday and I probably need to have things a little cleaner for when she comes.  

Writing all this stuff in my blog, may not be that exciting but it does help me want to stay on track!  I must be boring everyone though, especially if you are an organized tidy person, not like myself!

Baby steps: FLYLady

So, I've decided to begin the "FlyLady" baby steps.  Its suppose to be this really simple way of becoming more routine with organizing and getting your house in order.  I'm not someone who was "born organized" as some people are (FlyLady calls them BOs).  I wish I could have been born organized, because its hard to be and stay organized if you aren't. 
So, day 1 is Shining my sink! I need o go do that right nowl
So, off I go now o shine the sink and start some dinner for this bbq I'm going to this evening!

Lazy Sunday

I'm sitting at my parents' house playing on my computer, teaching my mom some fun tricks with her apple laptop.  I know I've been so bad at updating lately, new things in my life is my awesome new patio dining table!

It doesn't have the umbrella since I don't need one because my back deck is covered by a roof.  I wish I were black instead of the tan color that it is, but I figured I may just spray paint it black sometime. It really looks pretty good, especially considering the price I got it for, everything outdoors is on sale right now, if anything is left. It looks so much better on deck than what I had before.  I had a bunch of those folding lawn chairs that you take for camping/outdoor events, and this table my husband made out of half a wood door that was rotting because it was water damaged.

I have to work tomorrow on Labor Day. Blah, not looking forward to it.  I have to cover the Cardiopulmonary part of the hospital. I'm pretty sure it will be the ICU which isn't so bad, its just kind of a pain in the butt to get these people up because they have like 10 different lines you have to arrange and sometimes the nurses aren't always nice.  Most of the nurses are nice and helpful and excited you are there to help, but others I don't know how they like their patient's handled so I'm hesitant to get them up so then I feel like I've missed a bunch of patients.  But whatever, I'm going to have greek food for lunch!  There is greek church right next to the hospital and they have a festival every labor day weekend.  I'm going with a group of my co-workers to take a long break for lunch! Why not?! I know most people aren't going to want to do much tomorrow. I just hope there aren't very many people to see since it was a holiday weekend.
