The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

Rainy Tuesday

It's chilly & rainy here today, & I would love nothing more than to stay in bed all day watching movies with the boyfriend. 

Unfortunately, I have to work.

And I wouldn't mind so much, except I work on a floor that's overstaffed - which means that when other floors are short handed, I get pulled.  That was the case last night, & probably will be again tonight.

Getting pulled to another floor isn't really the problem either.  The disorganization of the supervisors & the fact that most of the nurses are inconsiderate is really the issue.

My shift starts at 3:00, but the supervisors are putting final touches on the staffing sometime around 3:10.  That's when I found out I had to go to another floor.  When I got to that floor, I had to make a linen cart for the night, which takes about 10 minutes.  After I did that, I walked out to the nurse's station, only to find out they were sending me somewhere else - & no one bothered to poke their head in the linen room & tell me.


That was quite a tangent from staying in bed & watching movies all day, wasn't it?

Anyway, wish me a speedy, easy night at work!


  1. i hope your time of working will pass by fast :)

    it's not any bad weather here ^^

  2. Wishing you a very speedy evening at work. And, hoping you get some time to do something you really enjoy.

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm following you now and hope to see you around more often!

  3. I think i'll do a post about my work soon too! Because I was schedualed for an overnight... and I have NEVER agreed to that! aghhhh! I'm too new to bitch, but this is gonna suck! I totally wish I could stay in bed with Aidyn baydin and watch movies too!

  4. I totally agree on the rainy day thing-whenever it's cold and rainy I want nothing more than to stay on my couch with my blankie, a nice hot drink, a good book, and to spend my time alternating between reading and napping! I don't think that's too much to ask! :)

  5. I hope it all went well! Getting pulled to another floor really doesn't sound fun! It's overcast and super windy here today and I'd like to call in sick and take it easy. Sigh....
