A Few Fragments for You



Mommy's Idea

I'm not really full of fragments today, but I do have a few.



It's been a good week.  Some stress was relieved, some good times were had.  And on one of my days off, I slept until 5:00 pm.  No joke!  I guess my body was desperately in need of sleep!



Next week, a retirement center in my town is having a "CNA Day Away".  It's a day for caregivers to be pampered with free massages, manicures, pedicures, etc.  I can't even explain how much I'm looking forward to this!!



Earlier this week I posted this.  If you missed it, I'd love for you to give it a read.




I'm leaving you with you a conversation I had with my 87 year old client yesterday.
She takes a medication that makes her urinate a lot.
She also gives herself insulin shots in her thigh 4x a day.
This equals to a LOT of pulling her pants up and down.

So today, after assisting her with that for the 845th time, she says in a high-pitched voice:
'Mommy, what did you do today?  Oh, I pulled a lady's pants down.  Over and over and over.'
Me: (laughing) Well, that's my job.
Oldie: Yes, but that's not really something you want to share with your children. You want them to aim a little higher in life.

And.I.DIED.
I love my job!

Ha! Too funny. My mother-in-law used to be an RN on the Pysch floor. I miss her stories since she retired!

Enjoy your well-deserved day of pampering! :)

You are just a delight; it's so nice to hear how happy you are with your job. It's such an important one, too. Enjoy that well-deserved pampering!

So, Chrome just crashed on me after I came to your page, but on the "Oh Snap" page, it invited me to reload the page, and when I did, everything worked much better. Just thought I'd give you an update.

thanks for linking up! :)
