Howling at the Moon

I have to meet the department heads for breakfast this morning. It is my boss's 8th anniversary with the company. I'm so exicited to leave my solitaire game and my blog surfing to join the gang for flapjacks.

The boss can get sloppily sentimental but it is always centered around her. I like my coworkers but we have too much to do right now being smack in the middle of our survey window. I'm staying at work until 7 pm every night as it is.

Besides, I took phone calls until midnight last night. They were all legitimate calls rather than the hysterical crap that some of my nurses like to toss my way for the sheer, simple fun of yanking my chain.

I was trying to watch Brokeback Mountain. It was a great movie but I'm going to have to turn off my phone to watch it again. It's kind of hard to track a love scene when someone is crying in your ear about a medication error. (Don't worry. Nurses have to really work at killing a patient. They don't give us enough tools or responsibility as a general rule).

And my grrl Verna came to the day shift. Holy God! She was in my office all day yesterday and she is very good at directing upward. Directing upward means putting your work into your boss's area of responsibility. Directing those things back down where they belong is a constant battle.

Right now, all I can think about is how I can get to the other side of my day with 30 minutes of daylight left.

Now that I'm plenty hopped up on coffee, I'm off to don my riot gear and run that gauntlet known as My Job.

I had a very good breakfast: belgian waffle with the works, very crisp bacon, and coffee ;^)

Working at killing patients. Ah. I learn so much from these nurses I know.

Keep that hopping coffee!

Yum is right Just Me. I'll be eating salads for a week in penance.

LOL Mocha! Most of us don't try to kill anyone. We sometimes wish we could but that's another story.
