In the Dark

Thursday, December 2, 2010

I’m writing this post in the dark, at 6:35 in the morning because I got out of work ONE HOUR EARLY 🙂

I was floated to the emergency room from 11-7, but it got pretty slow about 5 am.  At about 5:45 am I went for a walk to ICU and told them how tired I was and how I still had another hour to go and they said, “Call the supervisor, see if you can go home early.”  So I did, and I could!  And I got paid an hour of personal time to boot!

So I have to say I was not that happy about going to the emergency room.  It’s just not my comfort zone.  I haven’t been (in my opinion) properly trained for there.  But supposedly since I am trained for the computer, I’m as trained as I’m going to get…it’s all on the job learning.

But last night was not all that bad.  I actually learned quite a bit and feel a lot better about being floated there.  Not that I want to go weekly or anything, but I can go and feel more comfortable.

So now I’m going to take advantage of this extra hour and get some SLEEP!!  I’m exhausted.

BTW…the balmy weather we had yesterday has now changed over to plain ol’ cold!  Boo.
