Taking a Right in Albuquerque!

Meet Nurse Zombie.

Wonder what has made her so catatonic?

Could it be that she is waiting to find out if she was accepted into grad school and the tension of waiting is driving her MAD???

Could it be that the entire trajectory of the rest of her life balances on whether or not the sum total of all she has accomplished has rendered her worthy of inclusion into the exclusive world of graduate nursing education?

Does she fear being forced to bear the slings and arrows of staff nursing well after her back gives out and her bunions receive their own zip code?


Could be she just has a wedgie.


Okay, things aren’t all that bad.

Actually, they are. Once I know one way or the other I can get on with my life, but this being in limbo is messing with my mind.

Time for a vacation.

Like, right now.  Starting tomorrow, my weekend will be full of Kasey Kahne. So, what is different from any other NASCAR weekend?



In fact, I am writing this at the airport in Albuquerque as we speak. Four days of that wonderful smell of asphalt, rubber and gasoline, not to mention good looking men running around in fire suits.  Holla!  Have camera, will document!

(P.S. The photo is from kaseykahne.com. I borrowed it.)


This limbo-mind mentality is what led to an unprecedented 3 weeks without blogging.

I have so many deep, philosophical nursing topics to write about.

But, until then, just a few announcements!

  • Change of Shift. Here. April 29th. Submissions in by April 28th. For those who have asked to host I shall be contacting you!
  • There is a new carnival in town! Our own ChronicBabe Jenni has begun the Chronic Babe Blog Carnival! Not only that she is hosting Grand Rounds next week with a theme of “Ladylike”. Can’t wait to see what the guys do with that one! : D
  • And because bloggers can never have too much fun, I’ll also be at the ePatient Conference in September with Better Health! There is an MD/RN track this year.  More details as they come in! Save the dates. Click the widget on the sidebar (as soon as I put it there)!

See ya at the races!
