mr sandman,

bring me a dream.


and if a dream isn't possible i will settle for some sleep. because today was rough.
4 hours of sleep isn't enough for my body.
4 hours of sleep after being called a f***a** and being damned to hell.
(seriously, that's not a word and no thanks, i'd rather not go to hell)

somedays i wonder if i do any good.

last nite i got frustrated and spoke crossly to a patient who may or may not have deserved it. she was pretty foul.

i was inpatient with my sweet daughter who is teething.

and my dinner of marinated chicken, steamed zucchini and yellow squash, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes sucked.

and let's not forget the refrigerator rolls that expired in sept 2009 that i served.


so mr sandman, help a girl out.

because i cannot survive another day like today.

ok, that's a little dramatic (even for me).
i'm sure i'll survive but it won't be fun.
and i like having fun.
fun means happy and happy is good.

i guess there is always benadryl

Oh Kayla, what a night/day. I don't know how anyone could be mean to a most awesome nurse like you. Patient must have been on drugs and had a 400 BA. ;) I hear you on the sleep thing too. Somedays I feel grateful to have 4-5 hours, and it's no wonder I have bags under my eyes all the time. Get some sleep and get your sanity back! ((HUGS))
