Another good night. Alex and I talked. I enjoyed the conversation. He is young and quirky, but he’s a good egg. Not someone I would pull into my social circle, but a pleasure to work with.
Tonight was Janet’s last shift. She is going to another state and taking a job as a school nurse. I think it will be good for her to get out of psych. I think that she needs this change. I hope that school nursing is what she needs.
And there was a good bye party. It was a huge feast. Because that’s night shift’s style. We did a pot luck and had the entire break room table covered with food. Such over kill. But that’s usually how it goes, at least on night shift.
I was glad that Debbie’s send off was first because I think it would have hurt her feelings to see how much bigger Janet’s send off was. But Janet has been here a long time.
That makes for a night RN opening on 3 north. Claudine expressed interest in taking the hours. She’s always done well on nights so I don’t see that being an issue. No idea what that will mean for the over time though. And that is something that has been going a long way to getting us things. Like Dragon’s trips. I think those are good experiences for kids to have and I want to give that to her. Getting over time makes it easier to do that.
We have another party at work coming up. On Monday we will be celebrating Panda’s birthday. Seems like everything got stacked on top of each other.
I picked up tomorrow evening shift over on 3 north. I prefer to work 3 south. 3 north isn’t bad, it’s just a different rhythm over there. But you pick up the hours where and they are available.
