I have to go back to work tomorrow

  1. I have been living the good life for the past 2 months since we moved to Texas. Tomorrow I have to go back to reality. I really think I could get used to not working. No alarm clocks, I have been able to run every day, stay up late, shop when everyone else is at work....oh the good life. But, back to the grind stone tomorrow. I am a little nervous, hope the nurses and docs are friendly. I know that in all the ER's I have work in before that the best way to fit in is to bring food, so I am baking brownies tonight. Any other suggestions to help break the ice on my first day back at work?

    I took time off after my dd was born in 1999. Was off for 5 months and moved 2000 miles....wanna talk NERVES here? I say, like the above poster does, BE YOURSELF, RELAX and have a GOOD TIME. It will feel good to be back in the saddle, again, if you are like me.

    I am still waiting for my mom to tell me I have a trust fund and this has all been a learning experience for me! I am ready to get back in the swing of things, and meet some new friends.

    Brownies sound like an excellent idea! I'm always one for being food!:chuckle. I guess I just like to feed people. My mom used to do the same thing...so I guess I came by it honest.

    And speaking of winning the lottery. I knew a nurse who won the lottery in NY. She and her husband were the only winners. They had a lot of kids....don't remember how many though.
    It was in 1988, and they evidently were forced to leave their jobs.
    Why? Because people accussed them of taking jobs, that could go to others who needed them! They ended up selling their house and moving because of all the harrassment from neighbors, friends, and even people they didn't even know.

    They just couldn't take the school, the little league, and everyone else ...asking for them to support this, or give them money for that. Funny thing is...she loved her job! And was also only going to work per diem...to get up her hand in the mix.

    Good Luck tomorrow...and relax...as I'm sure everything will be just fine..

    Regardless, I'd take the winnings anytime.

    I could never work another day in my life and not be bored! In fact, I'd like to personally discover just how much too much money is for one person to win. Wish me luck in that endeavor.
    JJFROG, good luck! It is always a little nerve wracking to start a new job. Bring those brownies and be yourself and I'm sure you will do fine.
    Let us know how it goes!!

    I've always worked but would like to find out what boredom is all about. Look forward to the time when I don't have to work for a living. Look forward to not having to set alarm clocks and be on someone elses schedule. Everyone I've talked to about this says "you will be bored". Want to experience that some day.

    "feed the nurses"

    if this wasn't so tacky i'd put this as a sign on our unit door, everyone not only loves to be fed.... but loves to work with new people, refreshing conversations...

    after 2 months off you'll be refreshed (for nsg. not the stress of moving) and ready to go!

    hope the move went well... along with the new nsg. friends, don't forget brownies for the new friends at the home as well.

    I survived! Actually had a really good time, staffing is good, everyone is very friendly and I hit all my sticks! Can't ask for much more! Thanks for asking.
