whine whine whine

OK, I know I said I wasn't going to blog for awhile and I do have a Pharm test tomorrow on vitamins, anticoagulants and blood transfusions, but I just need to UNLOAD....

My day starts like this...
ok, well let me first back track....I amazed myself with organizational bliss earlier this week when I, not only, made a menu of fabulously healthy dinners (okay not yesterday, but the rest of the week), I even did the shopping for said dinners and pre-pureed some veggies to 'hide' in said dinners (an aside here, did you see Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld talk about her sneaking veggies into her kids food....can I just say, I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR AWHILE NOW, but ok, I'll give her she did give me some good ideas about how to sneak veggies in other areas other then spaghetti sauce and chili)

Anyhow, this morning, woke up at five, put away some dishes, made some coffee, watched the weather (78--woo hoo) and started prepping the crock pot for tonight's meal and I had a half a head of lettuce in my crisper rather then 1/2 a head of cabbage AHHHHHHHHHHHHH. So I had to make a 630am run to the grocery store for some cabbage.....I was in a line of people buying donuts and bagels and me with my head of cabbage (rolling eyes right now).

Get kids to school, put dog into dog run....and by the way, it's muddy and hubby, nicely put stepping stones from patio to dog run, but to fit his gait not mine...so I ended up slipping and sliding in the mud....fun fun....changed shoes, got in the car and realized forgot my notes. Went back home, got my notes, got back in the car and headed to school (40 minute drive for me).

The lecture today...Grieving. I held it together during hospice care, during helping a young dying mother choose the caregiver for her children and then totally and completely lost it when we started talking about the death of a baby and miscarriage (ummm, yes, part of the club no woman wants to be a part of). I think the teacher said something about the first time you DON'T hear the heart beat and I pretty much put my head on the desk for the rest of that lecture and sniffled through a mini package of kleenix...hope there's not much on our test about that. I wasn't alone. Come on a group of women going into nursing, probably the most concentrated gathering of empathetic people in the school during a lecture on grieving, there really isn't going to be many dry eyes.

Hubby offers to take son #1 to his soccer game (thank you hubby) I get home, only to find out the kids haven't even been picked up yet and soccer game starts in 5 minutes. I go pick up kids, get soccer stuff ready, snack made, hubby shows up....kids in room, I kept my mouth shut (one point for me). Again...AHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I am going to take an advil, watch Ugly Betty and Gray's Anatomy (if I can stay up long enough). Then I will wake up ridiculously early and study for my 8:15 test on anticoagulants and hope to heaven tomorrow is a better day.

Ya should have called me and I would come over with the wine, wine wine and listen to you vent!

It will be ok...you can't possibly be all, do all and stay tear free.

So, go ahead and whine...we're listening!

sitting in silence...not just a diploma but some type of an award! martha up there's done it already...so i know it can be done!

dodi, totally love it! i'm a bit of a tv junkie..

Dodi said...

OK, TZ... here is something that might help:

The longest word in the English language, according to the
Oxford English Dictionary,
is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

(This sounded sort of "nursey", and will be a huge help to you if you ever get a test that has a bonus trivia question!)

I'm there for you, baby.

tz said...

dodi, the sad thing is i knew that and it means black lung disease...

are you impressed now?

and funny thing, jason and i argued about it the other day...he seems to think i was making it up, i'll have to show them this unsolicited blog comment of yours.

Dodi said...

Are you kidding me? You already knew that?

OK... can you pronounce it? (I suppose I'll have to wait to see you in person to actually find that out, as you could say on your blog, "Yes. As a matter of fact I CAN pronounce it. It sounds just like it's spelled. pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis."
