I'm on vacation :)

Been on vacation since last week Thursday - haven't done much but sleep and hang out with Kelly :) I go back to work next week Thursday and while it seems so far away it still feels like it will go by super fast.

Ana got her costumes in the mail this weekend and they only sent 2 out of the 3 I ordered - the other one was discontinued :( Well out of the 2 I REALLY like the butterfly one. The dinosaur costume fits her too small eventhough it is a large.

I'll just post these pics quickly and go on my way - not much to blog about. I sort of miss going to work but I'm pretty sure once my vacation is over I'll miss staying at home. Oh there is one thing to blog about. I hate my job I hate my job I hate my job! I remember the days when I use to love my job *sigh* here's what happened:

I don't know if I mentioned but they closed down my unit temporarily to do some renovations - let me backtrack. Before I was hired to work my unit was on another floor (the unit's permanent home). When I was hired the unit was moved maybe a few months before I started working to the floor that I worked on - it was moved because they tore down the entire unit to make it new again. Ok well in maybe July they closed down the floor we were on because they had to work between the ceiling and floor so we were all floating for a while (filling in the empty spots for other floors that needed the nurses) that lasted about 2 weeks maybe. We were set up on a temporary floor which was horrible since we were getting up to 9 patients. After a while they didn't give us 9 patients (we complained to the union) and we were getting less. Well the new floor was suppose to open in late Sept - early Oct and we were suppose to go back "home" then but rumor was going around that they had to close one medical floor in the hospital (apparently the hospital is near bankruptcy or something) but it wasn't suppose to be our floor. I'm pretty sure you can figure out what happened. They closed my medical unit and it was the worst thing that could have happened. They broke us all up and it was pretty sad and shitty.

They had openings for us on other floors and since I have no senority what so ever I got stuck working on the worst floor EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew I didn't like the floor because I've floated to it 2x and both times it was just sad. The floor is so depressing looking, the nurse manager doesn't smile and one of the day nurses has such an attitude it's just amazing how bad of an attitude she has. I use to like going to work and now I dread it :( The people I've worked with on nights so far have not been bad. The second day I was there was cool - I thought I would be able to stay there and be happy but come morning time I was wrong. I know I'm there to work not to make friends but really who doesn't want to try to have a decent time at work? I'm telling you it's horrible. The patients are different - I've been trying to read up while I'm home because while this is a medical-surgical unit I'm on it's also the neurology floor so it's more neuro then anything else. I could go work at another hospital but who's to say that it will be better? I just can't help to feel sad when I think of it, so I'm off to find something to do to keep my mind off of it. TTYL and here are some pics for you to look at.
