ouisa boudreaux

Everything was going along just fine. That is until I ran out of my levothyroxine. Had my uterus and all its paraphernalia yanked along with it back in October. Since then not a hotflash to be had or a bitchy word to expel unto any victim. Then I had to go and run out of those eensy-weensy little pills. Ever hear "nurses make the worst patients"? I do nothing to dispel that theory.

I am well on my way to being slapped like Ouisa Boudreaux.

Have no idea what in the hell I'm talking about? Well, what is your major malfunction? Youth? A penis? Live under a rock?

Ouisa Boudreaux is Shirley MacLaine's character in Steel Magnolias. If you still have no idea, may I suggest this nifty little thing called Google, and then Netflix.

Ouisa Boudreaux is grumpy. At times, she is downright bitchy, hence being slapped by one of her best friends.


I refilled my Rx of levothryroxine today in hopes of not being slapped any time soon. I really hope that these mild, little heat spells I've had recently, totaling about 2-3, and the major outrage of PMS-like bitchiness are due to my inability to stay on top of my refills and not the dreaded "m" word. Let's not get into the situational crap going on in my reality...

shocked to see my blog!

I was named in the top 50 blogs for student nurses to read at back in April 2011. Wow! I wish I'd have know back then. Thanks!

needed inspiration

"I have had crippling despair at times about my job, too. Sometimes the difference between what I expected and what actually occurred blinded me from my original passion and filled me with dread and desolation as if the bright sun in my heart had extinguished. Make changes until you find yourself in the place where your passion for nursing is allowed to be expressed to the fullness of your original design. Life is too short for misery when we work so hard. Remember the organic motivation you once felt and let that guide your choices as you seek to find yourself in a place of professional fulfillment."

for the love of the written word

Now that I've been out of nursing school for oh, about a year and a half I've finally delved back into books. This time around I'm reading strictly for pleasure. So far I've read (click on the titles for links to Amazon with reviews):

Remember Me? About Lexi, who wakes up with amnesia. Loved it!

Sounds Like Crazy This one's about a woman with DID. If you like psychology based novels, you'll like this one!

The Help Excellent and enlightening story!

Playing Dirty If you like smut novels...this one's for YOU!

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back This story was special. It took me forever to read it. A co-worker had let me borrow the hard copy book and after delving into the world of ebooks via Kindle, via my ASUS EeePad, I decided to upload it. Then I read it, in one day. I'd love to read a version from Colton, if he were to ever write it.

In my queue:

The Lovely Bones


Water for Elephants

Moon Shell Beach

The Watson Brothers

I have a bunch of other books I've collected over time from clearance racks, or those that just sounded good to me. I think this is a good start to getting back into the written word.
