  2. Mamma said there'd be days like this.......what she DIDN'T say was that there'd be so durned many of them. Of all the things in life that I hate the most, interviewing has got to be right up there near the top of the list. I loathe interviews. One re...

    Used Nurse: Part Deux

  8. Same shinola, different day: I received twin rejections between breakfast and lunch today. One was from the hospice where I'd aced two interviews, only to lose out to someone who lives closer, and the other from the local hospice where I'd really, re...
  9. The tide has turned at last. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am once again gainfully employed. As a nurse. At a nursing facility only ten minutes from my front door. I know what my ortho doc said about my knee, but it's healed better than either of us e...

  12. Hello. My name is Marla and I'm an unemployed nurse. There, I said it. Now's the time when everyone's supposed to shout "HI, MARLA!" and applaud. Oh, wait---that was AA, circa 1992. Oops. *blushes* I've talked about this revolting development here on...
