Another day at work..................I have the same patients today as I did yesterday, which is nice. Makes things go smoothly. I have three patients today, so I have been busy enough to make the day go by.
We had a potluck today, and I had Ethan come up to get some food. That was nice. We had a south beach diet theme, which sucked, so it was the smallest potluck I have ever seen, but it still worked out. Ethan and I got to visit a bit, and I introduced him to some of my coworkers. Nice to put a face with the descriptions.
After that, I was asked if I would be willing to work until 11pm tonight and have Saturday off. So I am working 7am to 1130pm today, then 7am to 730pm tomorrow, then I have three days off and return for 12 hours on Monday. It will be nice to have the whole weekend off, but it is sure going to be tiring tonight and tomorrow!! I will get at least one admit tonight (please, let it be only 1!! 5 patients really sucks!), and I should have all the same people tomorrow, so a bit of coffee (chai, actually) will see me through.
I told Ethan this, and he called me back a few minutes later saying that he was offered overtime for working tonight 10pm-2am. So he gets off today at 3pm, cleans Argens, then will go home and get a nap and return with the car at 10. I will take the car home at 1130, then come back for work at 7am. Busy 24 hours for the Amersons! Good money, though. I get time-and-a-half from 3-7, and double-time from 7-11, then shift break premium tomorrow, which means that I get time-and-a-half for the first 8 hours tomorrow. One step closer to our house! Ethan has directed me to www.johnlscott.com where he saw a house in north federal way for around $300k that he is in love with. I must go check that out and get inspired to work even more.
