Good Morning -
Joe - It's good to do research and to proceed cautiously when job-hunting. When I took my present job, almost 20 years ago, it was with the guidance of a counselor. The process involved, in working with a counselor, helped tremendously in being cautious and in being well-informed when accepting the position. For me, at least, it paid off wonderfully. As shared before in past posts here, I do like where I work. It's a gem of a hospital. I just want to retire. L O L!
Tweety - Seems like you have a nice day planned for yourself. Hopefully you won't get called into work. If you do, the extra $$$ will be nice, for sure.
Lil Nel - Your shift, last night, seems dreadful. Having 9 patients, alone, is understandably anxiety-producing and worrisome. I do not miss those high nurse/patient ratios. I can't say that bedside nursing sucks. I do like clinical nursing. The situation has to be safe, though. But, we all know that. Significant changes in our society's mind-set, priorities and political climate need to take place before meaningful action takes place. (Again, we all know that.) I do wish you, and the patients you care for, well. (((Hugs)))
Had a nice day, yesterday. Church and choir was nice. Unfortunately, two choir members weren't there, yesterday. This can be frustrating. But the anthem sounded OK despite a leaner choir. For Sunday afternoon and evening, Amy and I had a date together, seeing a live comedy show followed by a delicious dinner out in a nice Italian restaurant. The live comedy show was produced by "Shakespeare & Company" (Shakespeare and Company) as an off-season production focusing on Valentine's Day, and how modern films and music, dealing with love and romantic relationships, "steal" from Shakespeare. The production was quite clever and entertaining. What is wasn't was well-rehearsed. This may be the reason why the ticket prices were relatively inexpensive. But the entertainer's lack of preparation was part of the charm, oddly enough. They said from the beginning that yesterday's comedy show was rehearsed only during the past few days. They were all "pros", though, and performed as what one would expect from professional performers (minus the scripts in their hands). We enjoyed ourselves! I even walked away with a greater respect for Shakespeare! His works, when performed with much animation (aka "shmacting"), is easier to understand and appreciate. Much "schmacting" took place yesterday! L O L! The after-show dinner was delicious. We both waddled out of the restaurant with full bellies. L O L!
Today? I'm going to take camera "head-shots" of Amy for promotion. She has a couple of auditions coming up which she plans on attending. One audition is for a mini-series that will be produced by HBO. That particular audition is for extras to be used for that mini-series. The other audition is for a local regional theater. (There are MANY local summer-stock and regional theaters near where we live!) We just found out that Amy landed a couple of roles for a couple of shows for another summer-stock theater (The Theater Barn), that are being produced later this summer. Amy is quite the actor, and quite the "Shmactor"!, for almost any kind of theater role. (She prefers musical comedies, to be sure!) I do like seeing her on stage.
Last night, I edited the video-recording that I did of my VP of Operations (aka the "D.O.N."). It came out well. (No. I did not punch in when I video-recorded her. I forgot.) I did not finish my composition, though. I was too tired at the end of the day to be "creative". I still have two nights off from work (Monday and Tuesday nights). Hopefully, during the next couple of days I can reach DEEP into my bowels, and pull out some original music.
Hope all have a pleasant day today! Cheers!
