Work, work, work

Sounds like it's all I do, but as it turns out it's not what I do. Having gone to a relief position (required to work 24 hours in 2 weeks), I am one of the first people to be cancelled when we're overstaffed. Highly irritating since our manager had taken to overstaffing the unit and our census/acuity has been low which means we don't need as many nurses. Last night staffing mistakenly cancelled me for the entire night when it should have just been for the first 4 hours of my shift. Since they had to call me back, I ended up getting time and a half (part of our contract) which means I got paid for the entire shift anyway. Woo hoo! Tonight I got cancelled for the first 4 hours again, and probably should have been cancelled for the entire shift, but they made a mistake which was again to my benefit. So yeah, I can pay my rent and bills for another month.

Cash rocks, especially when it's paired with extra time with the babies.

Or....you could move to Seattle and not have to work, be able to afford a house 2-3 times the size of yours and have complete health coverage- everything at 100%......but hey, that's just me......

I have 3 words for you, rain, rain, and rain. I could also add a few more, cold, sleet, snow, no beach, no toffee crack.

There's no sleet here. I have not seen a speck of sleet. And you love the snow. It's perfect. It snows, stays around for a few days until you get tired of it, then it melts. There is most definitely beaches. What is toffee crack?

Rain? What's rain? I have no idea what your'e talking about.

See, you poor deprived person. You don't even know what toffee crack is. That's so sad.
