Monday Morning Quarterbacking

Perhaps I ought to begin tracking how many cups of coffee, or how many games of solitaire that it requires for me to complete an entry in this here blog. I have a wee bit of OCD in my personality. But it is not the kind that organizes drawers, scrubs floors, or organizes bills.

It's the kind that utilizes mindless pursuits to prevent me from going completely around the bend with the screaming meemies. Pastimes that send me into a haze of happy forgetfulness for hours on end.

The nursing staff managed to push all of my buttons late on Saturday night. Why they believe that their personal problems are my utmost concern I cannot fathom. But they do. It matters not how many times nor how many ways in which I tell them that I too deserve a day off. They believe that I want to discuss their innermost struggles and dramas.

But the problem is not really theirs. It's mine. I am just stupid and insecure enough to take it from them. And they know this as surely as the infant giving the evil eye to mom who just denied him his heart's desire. A screaming tantrum is certain to ensue.

So, another weekend down the drain with guts tied in knots. No rest for the weary. Or is it no rest for the wicked? Either way, I'm a Monday Morning Mess.

Oh, Pam! You have to go to that Boca Java place and enter a blogger's blend! You need to name it "Monday Morning Mess" - that's too cute.

Awwww, Pam. So sorry to hear you had a lousy weekend. I took a brief turn into nursing management many years ago and found it was not for me. I am a fixer and the problems people have simply cannot be fixed, at least not without years of therapy. Is it too late to consider a career that involves something other than trying to manage people/ ; )

Hey Nelle! My day ended with a patient on the roof. A fire rig, an ambulance, 3 sheriff department vehicles and more studly young men filling our parking lot than I could count. Were I straight I would have swooned on the pavement.

Cheryl, you made me laugh. I have no idea why I ever thought I could manage people. It's like saying I know how to lasso the moon.

And Kelly, I am on my way over right now :o)

I just might take you up on that offer. Not only all that Cheryl, but no kidding... I pulled into the parking lot right behind a fire rig this morning with full lights and sirens. It was then that I knew. My week would not improve ;^)
