Oh i am soooo sick of work. When I first started here, I wanted Overtime. They didn't let us travelers do OT because we are expensive. Now of course, there has been upheaval, the manager left under duress (And I thought she was alright at her job…) So a lot has changed. A lot of overtime is now available. And how perfect that it comes when I feel broke. (I still have about 2 months of savings in my readily accessible account, BUT….I like to have at least 4-5.
I've been taking opportunities as they come. This week though will be a doozy. I worked Sat for 12 hours and Sunday for 6. Today I do 12. I have tuesday off. Wednesday I do twelve. Thursday I have off. Friday I do 12, Sat and SUn I do 10. monday I am back for 12. and on it goes.
This usually goes one of two ways. Either I get very cranky and somewhat resistant to getting basic stuff done. (Not for the patients, but the paperwork suffers etc.) or I get so used to being at work that everything gets done and when I get a day off I am unsure how to use it.
It's also a ramp up week for training for the Marathon.
If I can make it through August, I should have a built up my savings a bit, feel more secure and be able to go back to normal hours for a while.
Have not heard from my special guy in a week now, as he has some stressful stuff coming up. So on top of all of the work, I feel stressed due to that, but oh well….it's not as if he doesn't know where to find me…and it's pretty much gaurenteed that I'll be there, except for sleeping hours!
