Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 294

Today's Daily 5:

  1. a smooth rental car process and driving commute
  2. another good day of clinical (this one included quite a bit of baby cuddling!)
  3. corn dogs (I know, so not healthy, but I really do like them)
  4. plowing through some homework and laundry between clinical and work
  5. a work shift that left me feeling quite encouraged

A week out of whack

Things started out so well with blogging last week, and then went downhill.  You may or may not have noticed that my daily 5 posts were bunched together, and that Thursday and Friday's posts were missing entirely.

That was kind of the way my week went, too.

I started a new job, one that I already love, as a care aide for a disabled woman.  Most of my job involves getting her ready for and into bed at night.  I did a mid-week shift last week, my first on my own, and it didn't go smoothly.  It took double the amount of planned time, and I arrived home at 3:00 am, slept for 2.5 hours and then got up to head to school for a half-day of classes.

That event threw my whole week out of whack, and instead of using the weekend to catch up the way I normally would, I spent most of the weekend at a bachelorette party for my sister-in-law to be.  We stayed up late, experienced a blizzard (yes, with snow, in June!), and then came back to the city for a lingerie shower with even more friends.

I worked last night, and again tonight (with the person who trained me back there to help smooth out all the wrinkles we bumped into last week), which means late nights. Not a great thing when I'm already so tired that I feel like I could cry.  But I'll get through them.

So, when Tuesday arrives, my only plan is to tackle some homework, and then plant myself in front of a television (or netflix!) and veg.  I'm very much looking forward to stealing a few hours for that on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, since next weekend will be fully occupied with my brother's wedding.  It's going to be lovely
