The last two workdays, the ones that I had off, were awesome. I so very rarely get a full day off between working 5 days a week and weekend call days and I got THREE FULL DAYS OFF IN A ROW. Excuse me if I’m a little excited. This meant no hospital, no call, no phone answering. Okay, I cheated, I answered texts but I did not answer the phone. I’m proud of myself.
But these last two days were a rehearsal for the six days I will have off soon for the Magnet conference. I will be out of state so I can’t take call. I know my relief will do brilliantly. After all, she just got two days practice being the evening charge nurse.
Almost time for the curtain to rise on the Magnet Conference, t-eight days until I leave.
