i am at work right now. we only have one couplet [mom & babe] so i have time to come on here to play. we just tucked them in for the night and unless they need something, I'm good to go.
i slept on and off most of today, but there was an air show going on at the base. those frikkin planes sounded and felt like they were doing nose dives straight for my house! i would be just falling asleep and suddenly, cuz you cant hear them coming, there's a huge BOOM and i would jump up outta bed and say WTF out loud... my heart beating so fast cuz i thought a plane was gonna crash into my house... only to suddenly have the boom disappear just as quickly as it arrived. then I'd sigh a breath of relief and mutter to myself fuckin air show..... I'd lay back down, just fall asleep once more only to be jolted up again by another magnanimously loud BOOM that rattled my windows.... this went on all fucking day and no matter how many times i told myself its just the air show, as soon as my tired brain began to fall into la la land, it forgot and I'd be scared awake again! so tonight i really had to drag my butt into work as i am sooooooo tired! thank goodness i had dinner all sussed out in the crocker. Diane had the spaghetti ready after my shower and it was yummy. i have had numerous amounts of coffee here and it's only 1130 pm. i have till 0730 am to go! YIKES..... the caffeine will probably catch up to me by morning and then i wont be able to sleep for a different reason!
i guess the ER was complaining that they have been so busy they deserved to get free pizza. one of the managers got wind of it and brought in pizza for the whole hospital at her own expense. [we're a small hospital]. so we just had us some pizza on the house! that was very rude of ER to say that and very nice of the manager to buy it. i will have to send her an email thanking her.
did i ever tell you guys that the unit i work on here, is haunted? well, it certainly is. i can tell you of the countless nights i have been here with each and every nurse at some point, and strange noises, doors slamming, toilets flushing, room lights going on & off, phones ringing in empty rooms and scariest of all, babies crying. WHEN WE HAD NO PATIENTS and the 3 of us were all sitting together at the nurse's station. yep. one night we all heard music coming from the back..... so we went to investigate and in the jacuzzi room, the lights were on, the CD player was playing very loud. we turned it off and left. we got half way down the hall, it began playing again. this kept up for quite a time. here is the layout of the unit i work on.... sorry if its small but i tried to draw it precisely. you will get the basic jest of it, though. unless there is a labor, we usually sit up front at the nurses station near the nursery. we usually hear noises in the back where we do labors. but we have also heard people in the kitchen too. we have had to call security to check things out many times, because we thought someone was on the unit. one nurse was walking back towards the labor area and the room at the end of the hall was empty, but she saw someone in scrubs walk across the doorway, and she came screaming down the hall.... we called security that time. there are nights we have no patients yet we will hear the toilet flush in one of the rooms. or we will get a creepy feeling like we are not alone. and we have ALL heard the phantom baby crying in room 5. we have a locked unit, no one can get in unless we let them. but we have been sitting here and suddenly the front locked doors would shake really bad as if someone was trying to get in, and we can see the doors in the monitor we have for security purposes, but no one is there. ohhhh yeah, babe. its creepy i tell ya. well, gotta go... baby is calling me...
