Less than two weeks . . . .

till my community assessment is due!!! Have I been able to visit any of my community places? NO!!! Actually yesterday now, I had planned to wake up early and visit some of my community sites that I have chosen. I had set my alarm for 0900 but somehow slept through it! I woke up around noon when the phone rang. I was in disbelief when I saw what time it was! :-/ I thought at least I had the afternoon but I was super tired! I had put an energy drink in the freezer and went and laid down setting my alarm to wake me up in 30 mintues. I ended up waking up 4 hours later which it was after 1700 and had a frozen energy drink by this time!!!!! I am not sure at this moment how I am going to get this community assessment done.

Tuesday morning after I got off from work, I meet up with some of my classmates and went on a tour of the Federal Medical prison. I had been there before but it had been 10 years. It was an interesting tour but we got started late with waiting for people to show up and then the person giving us the tour was late too. The mental health unit looks like prison cells you would see in a movie. Then after the tour, I went home to get some sleep. I had a dream that the inmates had made a secret passageway to this little strip mall and held me and another nurse I work with hostage. I think that comes from a story that I was told by a doctor that worked at the prison. He told me that a couple of the prisoners had escaped and went to a bar not to far from the prison. I guess they didn't have any money and didn't know what to do so they called the prison to come pick them up. I have no idea how they could have escaped with all the security and curled up barbwire that goes all over the fence!

I am looking forward to my appointment next week with the hand specialist. This cyst has gotten bigger and hurts. I am ready to have something done! My finger looks pregnant! I have been told it is unusual to have a cyst where I have mine.

I really need to be sleeping as I have class and have to work tomorrow. I am going to be a sleepy head at work. I noticed one of the days that I needed off that we had 5 nurses all night. I asked if I could just work 19-23 and be off 23-07 and it was approved. I still can't get anyone to work for me on the 25th and the one person that could be charge didn't want to be in charge and said no. I am going to have a rough day that day!

I am going to finish my Old Testament quiz for tomorrow and hopefully get some sleep!
