If I were still working ARMATTHAEI, I would agree with you 100%. I too was a night nurse on 12 hr. shift through the weekends. Fri. and Sat. nights were the pits until 4-5 AM. Then instead of a much needed break, you had to start replenishing all the "stuff" you used to care for the ones having too much fun. 3 12hr shifts over the weekend was almost too much. Thinking of this, I am so glad to not be working anymore.

I can understand how Mondays can be hard for those that work M-F, but as a 12 hr. night shift hospital nurse, I'd rather get rid of Fridays. I feel the docs push patients that are not quite ready to go home because limit testing can be done on the weekends. (Probably an insurance thing) That means a lot of admissions for the night shift staff, because the emergency department is rocking with those having too much weekend fun. Can we say paperwork, especially when the person day shift discharges gets admitted back into the hosptial that night.

most of my days are filled either with appointments with others or myself.......


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I'm retired and can't think of a day I can do without. Mondays are child care days with my little g/daughters. Lots of work but love it. Tues. a day of R&R; Weds. thru Fri. my days to do whatever and the weekend is time with my hubby who works 12 hrs weekdays. Now that I am a winter Texan for a couple months, all days are very full with activites. As they say, I wonder how I was able to fit in work before retiring!

hi

My weekends are too short and the work days are too long. When Monday arrives I am always in a emoticon bad mood that is why I call my Mondays Moody Blue Mondays. Once I pass Monday I am a happy camper the rest of the week.
Keep On Sparking
