Ever have one of those days?

Where every thing you did went wrong?
Where everyone you came in contact with made you mad?
Where you felt you were doing a senseless job?
Where no matter how much you do for some people it goes un-noticed by that person?
Where you wonder if you really need the money bad enough to continue doing that senseless job?
Where you ponder at why you took that job in the first place?
Where you try your best to figure out when and how you can get out of that job?
Where you know that you do not want to give up such a great job?
Where you have grown to HATE Mondays and all they bring with them?
Where you question your skills at what you do?
I have had one of those days today as well as last Monday!
It really has nothing to do with me and my nursing skills.
Nothing to do with the office dynamics as I have a great raport with the Dr and the office assistant. I also have a great relationship with most all of our patients.
I always go above and beyond to care for them as I always have in my nursing career.
However, there just seems to be a few people who can just crawl under my skin and sit there and bite me and chew and gnaw for hours on end!
The kinda biting, gnawing that you just can't shake off or leave at the office no matter how much you try to!
I wish I could say more about the situation but my hands are tied and my lips are sealed!
I just want you to know that it is giving me uneccesary chest pain tho!!
SO...I just dream of better days to come. Garden time. I dream of playing in the dirt.
I dream of the peacefulness and the way the time just floats on by as if to stand still.
The warm sun soothing my sore muscles............
Yes I am going off to my happy place now..............

Ya wanna share some of those happy pills my friend??? I promise, promise, promise if you meet me in MO I won't make you mad~ I might make you cry with me, but I won't make you mad. Please, please, please, pretty please Danny, let her come! We could meet at Momma Hooches (aka Mrs. Canned Quilter) and have one big girls get together, and I think Brenda lives close by, too.....

Sorry you've had such a bad day..I pray it doesn't move into tomorrow. I've had (and got) some of those folks under my skin too..I'm finding it's very hard to live these words but I know that we just have to understand that they are God's creatures too and, for some unknown reason, they might be having a hard day or just don't know how to have a good day..maybe they've never been shown the love and attention to give back to others. That's when it's very hard to muster up every act of kindness in our being and show it to them.
I pray you have better tomorrows.
By the way, nursing is not that gloried job so many think it is but I'll bet there was someone that felt your caring heart today.

I have those kinda days almost dailey. In my case, it is burn out, I think. Thirty-six years is too long in the same profession!

I hope tomorrow is much better! I think Terri's idea about meeting at Momma Hooche's place would be lots of fun. I don't think my goats would let me get away that long, but it would be great. Maybe ya all need to come on down to my place and help me with the milking! We might find one of my goat cheeses to pair with some of Momma Hooche's peach wine!
