good morning everyone... well, anyone
hate to hear about your patient karen, but you must keep in mind.... you're a nurse, not a supernatural being... you can only comfort to the best of your ability, and you simply cannot alievate all pain. lord knows, we all wish we could take away the pain of another, but god generally does not give us that ability. my thoughts are with you, though, as i can understand your feelings.
i'm up early, as jason woke me before he left this morning. all "i'm sorry.." 's and the like... perhaps i should be leary of the coffee he offerred to make me this morning :uhoh21: . nahhh.. on second thought, he's got more life insurance than i do!
i worked on an essay for my comp i class all day yesterday, and i have to admit, i think it's going to be pretty good. it has to be an argumentative essay (yeah, i've got the argueing down pat lately, believe me... ). i couldn't think of anything to write on that i really wanted to argue about, so i asked a friend for suggestions. he told me to write on the legalization of marijuana. i started out my paper against it, as there have been problems in my house with this in the past and i firmly planted my foot on the issue. i started my research, and i ended up writing a paper for the legalization of marijuana! not on the grounds of medicinal properties, but just because of the economic impact it would have on the economy if it were legalized, regulated and taxed (much as cigarettes and alcohol are). it's going to be funny turning this paper in to a little old woman, to whom i know will look at me funny. oh well, who cares? in the end, i think it's a sound paper with a logical thought process. and, no, i really don't want to get flamed for this paper.. i have to write about something and argue a case... lol... maybe criminal justice is wearing off on me...
been a good weekend on a personal note for the most part. well, for *me* it has. i've had a good time hanging out and doing my thing. both the kids have been gone, so i've made time for me this weekend. (that's the reason i didn't work on my paper until yesterday.) had a blast! drove for hours with the radio turned way up, listening to music i'd never heard before, went hiking on a trail to a beautiful waterfall, hung out with friends... lol.. and all that was saturday! ahhhh.. life was good for a bit!
anyway, as you can see... i'm about to be writing a book here, so it's time for me to go! i'm not a nurse yet, not sure that i ever will be now, but at any rate, i can't answer the qod! but, i'm sending positive thoughts to everyone who is, and who will be, one of those special people. be good, y'all!
