Long Days, Short Nights

Well, lately I have been working some excruciatingly long days at the hospital, and my hours of slumber have been getting a bit short.

It’s funny…. Everyone is getting ready to go to school, and I’m not…for the first time since kindergarden. I went into Staples last night to get some paperwork photocopied, and I was completely engulfed by parents and their children, running around like chaotic chickens (sans head, or course). I was overwhelmed, but I caught myself getting a bit jealous as well. I was one of those kids who was COMPLETELY wrapped up in getting cool new binders and pens, and searching for that amazing ‘first day’ outfit.

And now I’m standing at Staples – in my hospital scrubs –  getting work stuff photocopied.

As I got back into the car (with Max, whom my Daddyo brought when he picked me up from work), I realized, this is what life is like after high school and university/college.

Thank God for puppies, friends, family, and martinis.
