    After an especially busy day at work my husband almost always has to tell me to "slow down".. I'll go speed walking through our house because it's the same pace I've been walking up and down the hallways all day :P
    I'm 5'3" and my DH is 6'1". For the first decade of our marriage he would walk so much faster than me I had to jog to keep up sometimes. Now, I'm pulling out in front of him!!! Hehe.

    working on full speed for years...I will never forget when I got remarried and I never thought about how full tilt I always operated on...ate at full speed or you didn't eat at work, walked at full speed or you didn't get everything done, wrote at full bore or the charts got taken by someone else,...well, one night shortly after we got our forties..I decided to bake cookies at 945 pm...he comes into the kitchen and says...DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM...noo..I don't think so...Welcome to the world of being married to a nurse...we are wide open...I think it becomes ingrained as your 2nd

    you get clocked out, run to your car and realize you've never had to pee so bad in your life-you forgot to take a bathroom break during your 12 hour shift

    Swear you can hear your CNA's calling you to a room for some emergency, and you call back to let them know your on your way. Scaring poor Hubby from a sound sleep believing the house has been broken into!
