Is It Friday?

The two weeks of classroom orientation at the hospital is over, and I've begun working twelve hour shifts on my unit. This week is a doosy, as we had our last two eight hour days on Monday and Tuesday and then yesterday and today are the twelve hour days on the floor.

This is my lengthy excuse for not having gotten my Friday My Town Shoot Out up. My kind blog friend, Barry
over at An Explorer's View, said some lovely things about my little book, Mama Pajama Tells a Story. He was generous enough to purchase one, and then he mentioned it on his blog. (Including a lovely photo of Springer Spaniel Lindsay reading it!) Thank you, Barry.
The photography assignment for this week was to show off Paducah's Christmas celebrations. The town is lit up, let me tell you! But I can't now, as I must dash off to work.
hug your hounds, I miss mine!


  1. Ahhh..we love the Mama Pajama of the finest sights in Paducah for us.

    Gussie and Muzzer

  2. We guess saving lives comes first Patience.

    We love the Mama Pajama card. She could replace Rudolf as Christmas mascot.

    Barry wants you to know he's a third of the way through your book. He would be further into it if he didn't need to keep stopping to laugh.

  3. Oh dear Patience, your life will never be the same, for awhile. I wish I had the back and legs to go back to work, but just can't make it.
    The last 12 hour shift I was into took me 4 days to get over. Three days on and 4 days to recover. Don't seem quite right does it? I am gonna ask the library for your book.

  4. Lucky patients having you to look after them!


  5. We read from Mama Pajama whenever we need to change our perspective after a stresssful day.

    But you have all those stories in your head and I bet they help you to recharge as the hours tick by.

    Lots of wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  6. I don't know how you do it, Patience. You continue to have my undying admiration and respect.

    You go, girl!

  7. 12-hour shifts are killers. Take care of yourself, OK?

  8. What a sweet card, Patience!
    We bet your patients just love you!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  9. That precious face is worth a whole week of photos. We will have this post to view all month long and smile.

    Kathy and Flynn

  10. Uh 12 hours of work a day would kill our mom. She would fall over dead. You are going great we are sure

  11. Soon Moma will be with her sister, who has the Mama Pajama book handy on her coffee table. One of these days she'll get it for herself. We know she will. Then she can read it to US!

    Knowing your long days lead to happy homecomings,
    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  12. Hoo boy can I ever commiserate!!!!! Hope they go well!!!!!!!! WIll be thinking of you!!!! Love PL2

  13. We hope that the working is going well! 12 hours is a really long time, especially when it means 12 hours away from the waggle!
