The Holiday

Happy Bird Day!

Anybody not working?

Nope, working the evening shift.

I'm getting ready to hit the shower and head to work for 3-11.

No biggie, double time pay for working the holiday sounds much better than having the day off.

My husbands family does 2 Thanksgivings we also do 2 Christmas's. His mom, sister and her family go to the sister's in-laws house, my hubby and our family usually go to his Dads side (my hubbys dad isn't his sisters dad).

And so that we all can be together, my sister-in-law, my mother-in-law and I prepare another Thanksgiving dinner for the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This is really working well now that I have graduated nursing school and have to work every other holiday.

So, I am not missing out. I will be with my family and have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, just 2 days later than most people :)

Wishing all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Not working! One of the perks of the OR......only 1 Holiday call per year!

I'm home today.........working all weekend though. It's OK, I've had four days off and am actually looking forward to it.

I don't have to work Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, either. I'm on call for admissions on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, but I volunteered for that........I don't drink, so there's no chance of being hung over, and I'd really like the double-time pay!

Me, me...I'm home! Have an oatmeal facial on, getting ready to take a scented bath and have some great books to read, a list of television shows I plan to watch, and have to go in tomorrow. Enjoy!

I worked last night and I'm working tonight. But I'm off all weekend. It's actually keeping me from being upset about not being with my girlfriend and family because they're 10hrs away.

I worked 12 hours on T day. We had a nice feast in our department. And there was free food for everyone in the cafeteria. So everyone in the ER visiting was allowed to go eat in the cafeteria. We even had a homeless pt who came in by EMS who when he heard there was free food. Signed out AMA and went to the cafeteria and was made welcome there. Very nice for all.
