Happy New Year to everyone. One of my resolutions is to get into shape, I use to run most days but I have’nt done anything in a while, so I needed something to give me a kick start. As I was reading blogs yesterday, look what I found on Scouts.
Now I won’t be running, as my knee can’t handle it anymore, so I’ll be walking. Started my first 2 miles yesterday.
Want to see more snow. We had the worst snow storm since 1950’s.
DH, myself and D#2 went for a 2 mile walk in it. It was beautiful to see especially if you could stay at home. But of course I had to work Fri, Sat, Sun, and Monday night. The hospital I work in went on a Code Grey (which is an emergency alert level for bad weather), we had to be prepared to stay 24 hrs in case the oncoming staff could’nt make it. They provided us with beds, food, and scrubs, and we brought our overnight bags with us for each shift we worked. Fortunately I did’nt have to stay the night, staff all got to work, our CEO went and drove people who could.nt get their cars out. Staff carpooled 2 and 3 co workers. Each shift tried to come in an hour earlier so the previous shift could get out early. It was amazing to see such teamwork and caring between co-workers, it makes you realise why you work where you do. Now there is more snow forecast for this weekend, and I’m working again!!! I don’t drive in the snow at all, so lucky enough S#1 works in the same hospital as I do on the same nights. He drives with me sitting in the back, knitting, so I can’t watch his driving. Due to the snow, the rest of the kids were meant to go back to school yesterday, but now its not until Monday!!!! Have a great day.
