I meant to post Friday, but I was so tired after that last shift that I fell asleep on the sofa and didn't wake up until 1030. Today is my one day off, and I got about half a shift written, so I will try to finish it up tomorrow after work and post it then.

Boy I tell you what, working more than four shifts a week is a profoundly bad idea for my sanity. Definitely gonna have to find a better balance so I can make the writing work.


  1. Elise, take care of yourself first and foremost. That's what counts.

  2. Hi -
    Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy the posts here.

    I know almost exactly how rough it can be to keep up this kind of thing whilst managing an incredibly busy and exhausting job... And I've never had to do all that whilst raising a family...

    I hope you keep up posting here, and I look forward to your updates whenever they occur.

  3. Maybe shift to posts on Tuesday and Thursday? That gives you an automatic overflow of posts if you work three shifts a week and it's one less to worry about typing, formatting, proofreading, and whatnot.

  5. I've been enjoying your writing since someone told me about the blog a couple weeks ago. I knew nurses had long since transitioned from just being handmaidens, but I hadn't realized how far. Fascinating. Good luck finding a schedule that works for you.
