1. I got canceled the last 8 hours of my shift!!!! We had an 11-7 nurse come in. Our census dropped at the last minute do to an AMA and two transfers, and no other floor needed help! I got to go because I was the only staff who wasn't contract!!!!

    What a pleasant surprise. I'm carrying my happy butt to bed and then reading and watching TV and being a slug!

    Woohoo for you! I got one of those wonderful happy surprises Sunday noc - had agreed earlier in the week to work a rare night shift and when I showed up, the boss hadn't notified anyone that I was to be there and the house super had my position covered (I offered to stay if needed but was thankfully turned down.)

    Ain't it grand? And I LOVE ama's - they're usually pt's that were PIA's anyway .

    I was good, I did some laundry and went to the gym at 3:30 in the morning. But it was so nice not to be working. Good luck getting off Melissa!

    Congrats! Nothing better than not being needed for a night shift, in my humble opinion! Woot! Enjoy!

    Lucky you! Glad you enjoyed it.

    I called in sick Tuesday to clean house...it was gross and needed it bad...never mind I was just off for the 3 day weekend.
