I came home from my little mini vacation to a busy, busy work mode.
It is only May but the days that I have been scheduled have been sort of crazy...it makes me nervous for the summer months which tend to be busy in the baby world!
I've worked days where I don't get a break until 3:00 in the afternoon...one day I didn't get a break / lunch until 5pm. Our unit isn't one where you can just say "Oh, wait - stop delivering while I go eat".
So I've been coming home a bit exhausted.
And not only that but it seems that I have been involved in some really scary deliveries lately...so much so that I find myself wondering if it is time for me to move on. Time for me to find something else to do. Time for me to retire (though I really can't do that for I'm too young and need to work for the $$). Maybe I will get a master's in library science and go work at my local library since I love reading so much!
Today I lounged around. I must be getting old since it takes me a full day to recover after a couple of hectic days on the unit. UGH!
But on a better note. We got our long term benefit / choices for our department. We can choose things such as no floating (which we rarely do anyways), working fewer weekend days, etc. Since I have been at the hospital for 25 years I could also choose to only work one summer holiday...so that is what I'm going to do - and I chose that holiday to be Memorial Day (since I don't do anything different or celebrate that day in any way). Which means I get Mother's day, Father's day and 4th of July off! Guess there is some benefit to longevity!!
