Blog Fog

busywaitingroomHoly cow, this nurse looks like she is swamped!

I can relate!

Whatever force got me to commit to six night shifts in eight days and a public health rotation on my days off must have gotten me at a weak moment!

This has to be the longest I’ve gone without blogging.

Between work, school and sleep, I have neglected my poor blog!

And I’ve also been remiss in my duties! The last Change of Shift was hosted by Mark at Medic 999, Ramona at Suture for a Living did the honors last week at Grand Rounds and this week it was Colin Son taking the reins at Residency Notes…

…and I forgot to link to all of them until now!

That is just unacceptable.

It’s pretty bad when my blogging time is affected.

But have no fear – Change of Shift is back here at Emergiblog next week and submissions are most welcome! Nurses – get those blogging fingers flying and let us know what is up! I’ll be introducing a new nurse blogger and I’m sure our old favorites (no, I did not just call you old) will be joining in! Just go through Blog Carnival or click the “Contact” button above.

Neither rain, nor snow, nor me losing my mind will keep Change of Shift from going up when scheduled!

Now it’s time to read 10 articles on school-based clinics!

I’m trying to contain my excitement.

    I’m with ya Kim. Blogging and being online has taken a far-back seat to school and work. Yep. Can you say “I Can’t Breathe”.

    School…yes, it’s that great vortex that sucks up your time.

    So far, I’ve spent more time on paperwork for school to get paid my employer than school itself.

    But, happily, I found the person who pays the bills. She’s gonna take care of me and gave me all the info I need.

    This sort of tuff gets us all sometimes. And I know I’ve said it before, but your ER does an incredible job Kim. Kudos and Respec’ are both due!
