I'm really not one to hold grudges, but I can't get past this new schedule set up at work. I have shifted my sleeping schedule. Trained myself so I can sleep 7-8 hours between 0300 & 1100 every day (even my days off). I'm just miserable and angry. I am truly living to work right now and not much living going on. I had a hard time working this kind of schedule when I was in my twenties, things have not gotten better with time. On days I work, I am working & sleeping & miserable. On days I have off, I'm trying to keep my life intact with laundry, groceries, and giving the crazy dogs attention once in a while. Unfortunately, blogging is not fitting in there. Is part of this feeling sorry for myself? Probably. But it also truly SUCKS. No one should have a permanent schedule like this, except maybe, Keith Richards :0)
Drama is not my thing. I'm putting an end to this. I haven't heard from the job I really want but I have someone inside, hopefully, working for me. I have even offerred to take the job at lower pay, in the beginning, so I can get the training. I'm going to give them 2 weeks to get back to me. That means, two weeks from yesterday, I head out to hospitals near me and put in my application. Stinks that the economy is even affecting nursing jobs. Nurses that have been working only part time or have left nursing, are returning because the major wage earner in the household has lost their job. I never would have thought it would affect nursing, but there you have it.
I've been playing a game called... Better or Worse than the job I have now?? There are truly some jobs that would be worse. Like: Jr. High School Teacher, Parking lot Repaver, Public Gym Janitor, Pediatric ICU nurse. There are others. Can this be today's version of counting my blessings? I am thankful I have what I have. No one is starving, the bills are being paid, and I will have this job as long as I want it. I'm still putting in an honest days work and trying not to bad mouth or gripe about my current job when I'm there. The longer this goes on, more other jobs look better :0)
The short story is that me and the crazy dogs are fine, we're hanging in there. Still planning on full-time by March 2012. I will find you all out there. Hope all is well, I haven't been able to follow blogs recently. Take care and be gentle with yourselves.
