The Princess Nurse and her Prince

Here I am at home in my favorite red gown. My prince adores me and he’s waiting on me hand and foot. He just polished my tiara. How do I look? Ok, maybe I don’t look exactly like this, but a girl can dream, can't she?

I am a princess nurse who is very tired when I come home from work at the hospital. My prince appreciates all of my hard work, and he spoils me rotten. I work 16 hours every Saturday, and my prince serves me breakfast in bed every Sunday morning. He makes me French toast, my favorite. My prince supports my dreams of returning to school, and he takes me shopping for books whenever I want. He is kind, considerate, and patient, which is a good thing because I can get cranky when I’m having hot flashes. My wish is his command. He works on keeping the passion alive in our marriage.

When I’m not at work or at school, I kickback and relax by blogging or by reading a good book. Like I’ve said before, I’m not Martha Stewart, and if you enjoy a spotless home, don’t step foot on my property. My house is cluttered, but this doesn’t bother my prince. He just steps around the junk that’s lying around the house. It’s also a good thing that he likes to cook because I can’t boil water. The last time I tired boiling water, the pan caught on fire, but that’s another story. The kitchen is his domain, however, I do have visitation rights to the refrigerator whenever I want a can of Coke. He won’t even let me clean the kitchen when he’s done preparing our meals. The best thing about my prince is that no matter how old and wrinkled I get, he always thinks I’m beautiful. Love is blind.

I think I'll keep him. I'm the luckiest princess nurse in the world.

except for the kitchen being his domain, he sounds pretty much like my own prince.
now, if i can only figure out how he can sleep a nanosecond after saying goodnight, we will surely have more fun in the eternity that is left for us to share :)

My Prince is in the kitchen, all right, I call him "Emeril the second", but that's all you and I have in common, Nurse Ratched. Hmmm???

Hmmmmm. Your husband makes me look bad. Although I can dial for pizza.

And, I'm curious like julie, rn is: I look forward to seeing the cover of the "hard boiled virgin" too.

What a sweet guy! Something tells me that you give him back just as much in different ways.

I am third in line who wants a book report on "The Hard Boiled Virgin". Wonder if that is when a woman puts herself in boiling water to get back her virginity? (I won't ask you to boil the water.)

I've been married for 35 years, so I must be doing something right. On the other hand, your guy puts me to shame. Lucky girl.

How to tell if a virgin is hard-boiled: Place her on her side on a flat surface and give her a little nudge at one end. Does she spin around smoothly without wobbling?

Can you give me directions to the Prince Store? I seem to have found my way only to the Horny Toad Store, and kiss them as I may, not a damn one has turned into a Prince Charming.

You're a lucky princess to have found such a high quality prince. Reading your blog makes me think you deserve him. I wish you many happy years together.

Mother Jones - you better laminate him, cover him with bubble wrap and arrange for mummification when he croaks, all the other men need to be able to see their idol on display and in perfect condition...give 'em something to shoot for.

Despite my cynical heart-of-stone and completely wicked exterior, your post has moved me enough that I will say this:


Hope you get better soon. The web can't do without a crotchety old Nurse Ratched for too long.

I would still be married if I had a prince like yours! He's a gem and you deserve him and I agree that you must be just as good to him! :)
