life goes on.

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.

so, this weeks rotation was ER. i see somethin new everytime i rotate through that place. most are minor falls, wrecks, etc. but then there's the scary big looming "trauma cases." while curiosity does ensue when hearing that a trauma has just arrived, curiosity is put to rest so quickly when you see a human, just as yourself, covered in blood, clothes cut off, and every machine you can imagine hooked up to them. all curiosity leaves and all i can think is, they had never dreamt their day would go like this, and now their life might even be over.

its not even the physical sight of it all that makes me feel so uncomfortable, just the emotional part is what gets me. i guess that if i were taking the xrays in there, your goal is to get your image as efficiently as possible. therefore, your focus is not on them but is instead on getting the job done to help them as much as you can. which is definately rewarding and worthwhile in my book.

please wear your seatbelts. i have always been a seatbelt nazi, thanks to my mom who's been a nurse for over 30 years and seen all the nasty end results of not wearing one. i had my visual reminder today so i don't ever want to hear about any of you being ejected from a vehicle.

wow. so happy valentines day weekend to you all? hah, little on the heavy side. but please please please wear your seatbelts.

the end.

a few funnies to get you through your day

this is my stinkin cute niece Maddie. She's a little OSU fan in the making, crazy hair and all!!

check out the link. hence the real reason for enjoying superbowl sunday, funny new commercials!

this also made me laugh, since we live in such a "facebooking" world now...


An intentionally vague Facebook status update, that prompts friends to ask what's going on, or is possibly a cry for help.

Mary is: "wondering if it is all worth it"

Mark is: "thinking that was a bad idea"

Example: "Have you talked to Mark? He's vaguebooking again. I wonder if he's back with Mary..."
