I lost my phone this week.... I left it on the train the day I came home from Oahu. I was so ecstatic to be home that I jumped up, grabbed my luggage and somehow managed to loose my phone merely minutes before I made it home... no joke I was holding it just seconds before I got off the train and by the time I walked home... across the street... it was gone.
Oh well... can't cry over spilled milk right?
Well, its Thursday now and I won't have a phone until this weekend... it's been two days since I've been cut off from the rest of the world (I had an iphone so I always had email, text, internet.... everything at my fingertips). I had to go back to work the day I flew in from Oahu (not a good idea btw.... I've been going on literally no sleep since I came back and I didnt sleep much on the trip)...
So all that to say..... I've gone off the map for a few days and I'm loving it. It never ceases to amaze me how much I really do enjoy being by myself... away from the rest of the world. It's been good to come home and get back into my routine... and to not have to worry about phone calls and twitters and emails etc... That sense of urgency is gone, you know.... that feeling of always having to be available for people... and I'm liking that.
My job is so stressful... I really don't think people understand just how crazy working in the ICU can be... unless of course, you work there also. And I've really been leaning on my co-workers as a support... cause they get it. I'm so thankful for that. But knowing and realizing that this week has been big... not many people in my life understand just how drained I am pretty consistently... so being able to just detach... especially after a busy vacation... it's been nice.
Don't get me wrong.... Oahu was beautiful.... but I love my home.... a lot... and I'm really thankful to be back.
So... in light of the circumstances I've decided to stay off the map for a bit longer. I'm gonna spend the weekend editing photos from the trip and getting settled back into my routine... I'll start posting again next week.
Hope you all are having a great week and that your weekend is even better... and for now I will leave you all with a preview of what's to come.
Happy Almost Friday Friends!
