I hate my boss because she's a wretched bitch with a nasty attitude, but I like her because I seem to be her golden child. I'm still on orientation for my nursing job, like 20 other people she schedules, but I'm just about the only one who has had every weekend off since we started. (C- if you read this- I love you man!)
I don't mind working weekends. I've done it since I was 16, a long 11 years ago. I don't remember what its like to have every weekend off. Now that I do for the summer, I am quite enjoying it.
I got extra lucky this weekend with Friday through Monday off. I was looking to take a long weekend somewhere, but even though I'm making a sweet nurse paycheck, the money fairy didn't sh*t glitter covered bills out of its ass for me, so I stayed close to home where its niiice and cheap.
I did make it to the Bronx Zoo with my sister, her bf, my niece and my brother though. I totally ate like a sea cow, but I rationalize it by remembering that I did walk up and down that blasted place for six hours.
I fell asleep on the couch last night, and then woke up promptly at 6:30am, at which point I did what I do every other time I wake up super early on the couch: I went for a walk.
(Aside: How freaky is it that I wake up at the SAME time every morning when I fall asleep on the couch?!)
Getting up early and walking was just the thing I needed to get me focused on my task. I'm awake for the morning, home now, coffee brewing, healthy breakfast planned, gym clothes for after work packed. I am ready to take on the world!!!
