My First Day Back Was HELL!!!

I'm so tired! I was so damn busy today that I didn't even have a break until nearly 1pm!!! I was famished. Good thing I packed a healthy lunch of a stuffed pepper and yogurt! I got to work and from 5 minutes after my shift started until 2:30 my phone would not stop ringing. My med rooms were a disgusting mess. I had an admission to do. I had to arrange appointments with outside agencies. I had a wound care specialist coming to see one of my residents. AND I had lab reqs to do (which incidentally hadn't been done properly in 3 weeks so there were a LOT because of the people that were missed). IRRITATING. Sigh...I knew I wasn't ready to go back. Tomorrow the big wig from Kelowna is coming for a general staff meeting...and I guarantee you he is not going to like what he hears. Hopefully his visit will open his eyes and he'll realize he needs to spend a little money to make/keep his staff happy so that they want to come to work (staffing has been a real issue lately...we're constantly working short staffed which increases everybody's work load in a big way). Anyways...enough bitching and moaning...

I was so surprised at how tired I was after work today. I nearly fell asleep on the couch cuddling with Chris (who still has a week left of holidays...brat) and Harley. I tell yah you take some time off and then going back is physically EXHAUSTING. Probably didn't help that I was so busy that I didn't even have time to pee!

Tomorrow is Zumba night. Here's hoping that my friends don't wussy out and I don't end up going alone...Even if I do, it's something I need to do for me and I have fun so who gives a shit if I go alone.

My parents are coming for dinner on Sunday to meet Harley and spend some time with Chris, the kiddo and I. Should be fun. I hope they bring presents haha (I say this because I know my mom reads my blog). Poor Harley has to go to the vet on Monday for his second round of puppy shots...gonna break my heart if he yelps...poor pup.

Anyways, I'm going to go finish watching Survivor with the boys. Talk to y'all later!

  6. Going back to work after a break sucks hard! Here's hoping the rest of the week gets easier as you go along. It makes you appreciate your time at home all that much more, doesn't it????

  7. Aw girl...yeah going back to work after a vaca/holiday, does suck, especially when those folks who were suppose to cover for you until you get back don't do the job right. Wow. I hope day 2 has been better, and that you enjoyed Zumba. I go all the time by myself...so no worries ;)
