Just when you think you're out...

They pull you back in!
So goes the saga of my leaving the nighshift at the nursing home to go back to full-time at my day job in pediatrics. I was told it would be so easy. No problem. You wanna come back, sure, according to us you never left. Heck you still are on the payroll part time anyway, we'll just work up your schedule, give us a week....
Sigh..... If only it played out like that.
On the other side...."I am leaving, I'll be done by the end of the week. I cannot work here under these conditions and do it safely." And then.."Well your coworker will be out for another full week, can you stay just one more week."
And so goes the saga of not enough hours on the dayshift and too many on the nightshift....
My solace...I have daytime appts all next week :) And I have been promised day shift by the middle of the month.
So I will continue to blog in a sleep deprived daze wondering how the career that I thought would be so wonderful and fulfilling finds me wishing I could live on the salary of a burger-flipper. "Would you like cheese on that?"
