Regression to Childood?

Confession time. I like acting like a 5 year-old. It's true. Truth be told, I don't think I'm the only one. As evidenced by the sight of 3 25 year old women huddled over a coffee table with giant My Little Pony coloring pages, a box of 120 crayons and Little Mermaid on the DVD player. Seriously. I still have mine hanging on the fridge :) I like Popsicles, Kool-Aid, and rice-krispie treats. The other day I went to Target to get some plates --long story --and came home with two boxes of Operation fruit snacks. Operation fruit snacks! How cool is that?! You remember the Operation game from when you were little? They have fruit snacks of it now! They're not as good as the Lego ones, but they're so fun!! Also high on my list of favorite things is my stuffed monkey and turtle, my quilts and cuddling pillows, and nap time. I don't live with my parents --or even in the same state, so I don't sit in mom or dad's lap anymore, but I do like to be held and hugged and have my hair played with. My favorite foods are grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken nuggets, fish sticks, macaroni and cheese, and ramen noodles. Being an adult is all it's cracked up to be, don't get me wrong, all the friends and the shopping, and the shoes, it's great, but it's great acting like a 5 year-old because you can. That's my confession for the week :)

Ode to my Bed

So as I was sitting here bored last night I was thumbing through my mind to think of something I could ramble about on my blog. The thing is I have literally nothing new. The day is blissfully routine and mundane. I wake up, I go to work, I come home, shower, and go to bed. Or I wake up, lounge on the couch for an hour or so, shower and get ready and go play with friends, then come home and go to bed and do it all over again. There are always crazy patients at work, but the crazy has become mundane, and honestly unless you've worked in an ER for any length of time, you just won't get it. No offense. So as I was reviewing the fabulously monotonous parts of my day, it occurred to me. I should blog about my bed. I have an unhealthy relationship with my bed.

Seriously. I talk to my bed. Every day. I hug my bed, I miss my bed when I haven't seen it for a long time. You laugh now, but there is nothing like collapsing in to bed at the end of a long day, and exclaiming, "Hello bed! I've missed you!" When I have nothing to do for a while after I wake up I quite often don't get out of bed at all until the last possible moment. I just lay there enjoying my bed. It is SOOOOO comfy! The thought of maintaining a vertical position, sometimes just isn't with it! It's not this specific bed either. It's whatever bed they furnish my apartment with. There are just somethings you can't go cheap on, and bedding falls into this category. My sheets are the hotel collection from Macy's. I have a three-inch memory foam mattress topper, I have 6 pillows, only one of which I sleep on. It's Ralph Lauren Signature. Also from Macy's 5th floor home furnishings :) The only way to go. Apart from my sheets, I just have my comforter and stuffed sea turtle from Sea World on my bed. When I'm not in my bed, it is always made. When I'm in my bed, the three pillows on the side I don't sleep on remain standing up in place. The two from my side of the bed that I don't sleep on are placed lying down perpendicular to the others lengthwise. This ways I have plenty to snuggle with and cuddle up to at night. The final piece to complete my perfect bed is an open window. I like it to be cold in the room where I sleep so I can get all cuddly and warm in my satin jammies underneath all the covers surrounded by pillows. Hhhmmm. Just thinking about it is making me miss my bed! And I've only been out of it for a couple hours! My advice for you this week is to make your bed your own personal oasis --you won't regret it! And don't forget to let your bed know how much it is appreciated --it's rude to be ungrateful! Sweet dreams all! Mmm, bed!

Recent Happenings...

So here I am, getting all caught up on my online stalking, and figured I better post something new so I have room to complain about people not posting for a while. There just hasn't been that much going on lately. I could update you on the episode of How It's Made that I'm watching --but you should just watch it yourself --that show freaking rocks!!! Fair warning to those who like lunch meats though --you may feel differently after you watch how they're made maybe skip over that portion. Anywho -- so things have been good. Christmas and New Years were good. Spent them working :) Nothing earth shattering has happened so far this year, but I'm supposed to be going bowling tonight, so who knows?!! Haha, here's some recent pics.

sledding down the ambulance bay on backboards at work --yeah it was a slow night :)

Siobhan and her cute sisters on Christmas Eve --they were kind enough to let me crash their dinner!

Dr. Dave rockin the New Years shades

Latrice Me and Siobhan --Happy New Year!

Bowling at the Garage for TJ's farewell party --Karl, Me, Deana, Dill, and Siobhan

More at the Garage --Amber, Me, Brianne, and Tilliesa
