I was called into work on Tuesday early in the day because of the storm rolling through Atlanta. I am not exaggerating when it was like Walking Dead out there. It took me 7.5 hours to go 30 miles. The hospital has kept us on an emergency staffing plan where we are not allowed to leave because there is no one to replace us. So, I’ve been living at work since Tuesday.. but I am finally home!
One of the things I really, truly missed besides basics like a bed (I’ve been resting on a couch between patient assignments), is my tea! I only scrounged up two old bags of Bigelow green and some unsweetened Lipton one morning before hitting the couch. So today I am going straight to comfort and am sipping apple pie tea. Mostly because I couldn’t remember the steep times and whatnot for Laoshan Black and I was too lazy/tired to look them up initially. But still, this one is warm and soothing. And now I may actually go to bed. A real bed! With a mattress and everything!
