It’s Nurse Betty down here in Nashville, TN. It is still warm here, but the past 2 weeks, it seems that all it is doing is raining. I have had a hard time finding a break in the weather to exercise outside. But when I curl up in the bed and hear the rain, I think of Canandensis 2009.
I am working Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. All of my patients have had surgery or are going to. I come in at 7 pm, try to get everyone settled down and asleep by 11, so I can get on facebook to farm -just kidding. I do usually get to look at facebook, because 2 to 4 am tend to be realllll slow. The biggest stressor most nights for me is to make sure I get to the cafeteria before it closes at 2 am.
Last week there was an employee appreciation celebration. They fed us pizza, kettle corn, coke and ice cream treats. There was dancing, caricature artists, and prize wheels (you spin the wheel and get a tee shirt.) Everyone was dancing, singing, eating and laughing- it reminded me of camp- all they needed was unlawful weddings for it to be a legit carnival.
On the weekends, I go to see what my parents are up to, or to meet friends somewhere. Labor day weekend I went to Gatlinburg- it rained all weekend, but we had a great girls weekend. Eating and riding around the national park.
I miss camp, but love keeping up with everyone on facebook and emails. I hope everyone has a great winter. My goals for this winter is to lose the 20 pounds I gained last summer, make it to New Orleans for a Monday night game, and make a trip out west. Gang- Stay healthy and keep in touch. I can’t wait to see everyone next year. I am with Marshall- I can’t wait to get my 5 year jacket.
Thank you, Eric for allowing me to use say Hi, ya’ll. -Betty
