week in review: battered

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for my weekly post (because I rarely get around to posting twice.).


I feel decidedly unproductive this week. Pretty sure that’s a result of exhaustion.

I worked 45 hours. A mentally exhausting week. One of my patients is in the hospital, again, and I’m worried about him. He also needs open heart surgery (not related to this hospitalization). Two more are going on hospice, one of whom I’ve known for four years. Both of my nurses were out on Friday, and there’s a stomach bug going around.

Work has been brutal.

So, on Saturday, I did nothing. Literally. I didn’t even get dressed until 5 p.m., and that was only so I could go pick up some yummy chicken alfredo tortellini from a fantastic local place. Also ice cream. Because this week. There might have been a cheap mixed drink in there, too (Sunkist + cake batter rum = adult snow cone).

I did my photo assignment for my Journalism Tools assignment, plus an Infogram assignment. Did a little bit of work on my Twitter assignment for the other class, but the JT class ends on Friday, so that was my priority. My final assignment was an e-portfolio website, which I spent about 5 hours on on Sunday, but I finished that thing, layered banner and all! So, done with that class. Now I can focus on my Social Media class.

I only wrote one book review, The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle, but I also wrote about what I read in September. However, I actually read a ton this week! I finished The Indigo Girl, and I read all of Merry and Bright, Select, The House at 758, The Midnight Dance, and His Majesty’s Dragon, plus half of Throne of Jade.

In general, I just tried to take it easy, because last week’s shooting in Las Vegas really threw me for a loop mentally and emotionally. It breaks my heart to see this world so broken. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected.

Also to those affected by Hurricane Nate. My family lives just outside the mandatory evacuation zone outside of New Orleans, so I’m hoping they made it through okay (they’ve been having cell service issues for weeks, so I’m currently unable to get through to them).

That’s it for me.

  1. It sounds like we had similar weeks. Balancing the uck with self-care and good take out, although you polished off more books than me. I’m envious. Right now I’m debating between eating or reading. 🙂

    I hope your family is OK. I’m sending all the good vibes.
