As I sit here throwing out my cassette music tapes from the 80's & 90's, it leaves me wondering...how exactly do they work? Oprah had an episode where this guy explained how the tv & phones work...which is amazing. But how do video & audio tapes work? And who invented them? As you can see, I have way too much time on my hands this week. :) And you're probably wondering why does this chick still have cassette music tapes from the 80's? I have noooooooooo idea!
I took this week off from work. I needed a little R&R, plus I wanted to get all of my continuing education stuff taken care of. I'm all set for nursing, but I also have a building contractors license & a real estate license. I'm so dynamic, aren't I? Haha! Renewal is every 2 years, but it seems like I was just doing all of this continuing education stuff. Oh well...just have to get it done. Luckily it can all be done online (yet another thing that I don't understand how it works...the internet).
I also got hooked on the tv show "24." I kept hearing about how great it was. I'm not much of a Kiefer Sutherland fan, so I skipped it when the show first started. After constantly hearing about how great it was...I decided I must see for myself. Needless to say, I'm hooked & I like Kiefer now. If you haven't seen it....rent it sometime.
I still haven't made a decision as far as what my next step in nursing is. I talked with an old classmate about agency nursing. She says she got called off/cancelled a lot & usually at the last minute. I don't want that. Do I stay in my comfort zone for another year or take a chance & venture out? I suppose I could do both - I'm just waiting for clarity to arrive. I've had agencies calling & the latest is some dialysis company wanting to know if I want to do travel dialysis. Ummm, no.
Did I mention that a couple of weeks ago I was messing around with the radio at work - moving it around to try to get better reception & I accidentally set off the code blue alarm? Ooops! My bad! That won't happen again...lol.
I had a JCAHO meeting type thing yesterday. It seems like such a waste of time. The information is good, but we get so tired of it being thrown at us repeatedly. And if I hear one more time "Wash your hands", I'll scream. My hands are so dry from the constant handwashing. I've got it so drilled in my head, that I find myself washing my hands even when I haven't touched anything or anyone! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
