Slept thru thanksgivinG!!!

  1. AHHH!!! I cant believe that I actually slept thru the whole day!!! I got called into work the nite before (gotta love OB), had a horrendous shift, came home to sleep a couple of hours before going to Dinner at Grandmas, and slept thru the alarm and numerous phone calls!!!! I cant believe I did that!!! This was the only time I was gonna see some of my family from out of town! Oh well...

    I'm sorry! I've done that in the past on more than one occasion. I hated working nites.

    Sorry to hear that. Yesterday I worked a 14 hr shift, got home at 1930 layed down on the bed (for just a second) and didn't wake up till this morning! YIKES!

    I sometimes wonder if nurses get bonus Karma points for all the missed holidays. Sorry to hear you missed things. Did they at least save you a plate of leftovers?

    Yes, I got leftovers, but I wish I had gotten to see everyone. As all of us have grown up and are moving on with our lives, it makes it difficult to get together.

    Shandy I'm sorry to hear you missed being with your family....(((Hugs))) for you.
    Bummer..... will you get to see them at Christmas time?

    I say sleep. I don't understand night shift workers who sleep a few hours and get up and do things. Not me, if I can't get my sleep, I ain't gonna see you!

    Anyway, sorry about your day. I hope they saved you some leftovers.

    I dont normally care to see ppl or do anything when I havent had enough sleep, but I thought I could do it this ONE time, lol... guess not!!! I will get to see some of them at Christmas, but several will be spending it with their other families, so, I guess I will have to wait till next year.... oh well, I did get to see many today at my other Grandmothers dinner.
