A Day to Unwind (and New Glasses)!
Today I finally got a day off (you know your schedule sucks when you're excited about one day off) but such is intern life - I'll be working all weekend and then do another week of ICU nights! But today I'm really taking the time to soak up as much as I can from the day, while still making it relaxing enough to feel like a day off and hopefully have a bit more energy when I head to the hospital tomorrow. Heading into the eighth month of pregnancy and still working these seemingly endless 16 hour shifts is starting to take a toll on me, I'm really looking forward to my more relaxed elective time that will come in November! But until then we'll push on, and soak up days like this as much as we can!
One of the things I'm really excited about is I finally got a new pair of prescription eyeglasses!! It's the little things I tell ya ;) But seriously, working nights, or even just really long day shifts in my contact lenses has been tough - Liv broke my old pair of glasses and it's taken me forever to find a pair I like - I have this problem that I'm too picky to like most of the "budget" frames, but too frugal to allow myself to spend too much on a pair I think are cuter! Thankfully I found GlassesShop.com, they have cheap glasses that actually come in styles that I fell in love with (they have prescription sunglasses too)! I've only had my glasses for a couple of weeks now, but so far the quality has been great and I haven't had any problems with them, I can't wait to use them for my next string of nightshifts! Glasses Shop is also having a deal right now that any new customer can get their first pair free (except for shipping and handling) so you can't lose to try! And once you're hooked use code GSHOT50 to get 50% any other pairs you get ;)
I hope you all have wonderful weekends and make sure to be thankful for the time you get to spend with your loved ones!
PS - Remember my Stokke Scoot post? It's not being advertised but the black Stokke Scoot is currently $100 off here if you've been waiting for a sale! I'm not sure how long it will last!
