Work. Real Life

As much as I wish that I didn't have a 40 hour a week job that takes up every other weekend and saps all my energy ... that is not the case. I would be lying if I said that I didn't envy those creative people that get paid to be awesome for a living and inspire the rest of us. But on the other hand, I feel very fortunate to have a good paying job, especially these days, when there are so many folks out there that are looking for work. I need to remind myself to look at the glass as half full, not half empty. Since I have started photo a day, I have accumulated a little pile of pictures taken at work. I spend a lot of time there, so it only seems right that it should be included in this little documentation of daily life. It has also helped remind me of the reasons I love being a nurse, many of those are hard to photograph though, ... adrenaline rushes, saving lives, finally getting through to someone, working with awesome people, those "ah ha" moments, and sometimes just having an intubated and sedated patient (after all, I am an ICU nurse). Well, here they are.
