Bench Monday


Working twelve to fifteen hour night shifts leaves little time for much else (including sleep). But this afternoon I managed to slip out of my scrubs for a few minutes to take a Bench Monday shot.  Actually it's not a bench - it's our new coffee table.  A steal for $38.00 and sturdy enough to hold a grown woman.   The dress a spectacular four dollar find and no I'm not expecting (the dress and I are simply a bit poofy - to be remedied sooner than later).  The flowers - pilfered from our neighbor's lilac tree (shhhhh!).  I don't think they'll be missed and they smell delectable.  Our whole neighborhood is a bloom with these trees the and the marvelous scent is drifting on the breeze.  It's wonderful.  I only wish I had more time to play outside.  

Now back into my scrubs and back to work.  Tonight the kids will be dropped off at the clinic since both the hub and I will be on shift.  Oh I hope they behave.  Air mattresses, a movie then off to sleep for them (fingers crossed).  

Happy Monday!
