OMG It’s been f o r e v e r

2 Comments

Hello,
I’ve been exceptionally busy since November 2019, when the powers that be decided to have me come back to the brick and mortar and do my job here in person. Let’s move forward to NOW! OMG! I’m now classified as an essential health care professional and in February this year, I was informed I now work on the IPU-inpatient unit. So, to clarify, I’m at work, NOT quarantined like everyone else! and I work on the inpatient unit! Today, I’m on call in my office because I have to catch up on the required E-Learnings. Required because they (powers) said so! Honestly, it’s all common sense to this Veteran! OH right, right! I was in the Army and learned this stuff there! Civilians, however, obviously need to learn this stuff! ugh, So I’m required to sacrifice -okay, insert drama llama here- hours to do this! and NO, I can not retrieve access to the company’s website from home to do this! SO! I’m in the building, but that’s groovy! it’s me by myself on the 1st floor, the support staff person in the basement- which is cool with me cause she goes from cranky to worse in a new york minute ugh, and then the inpatient unit is staffed with the Cool Peeps this weekend! *It’s not like any of them read my blog, so I can say the Cool Peeps!! The b team is cool too, but this is the A-Team this weekend! Boom BABY!

MY ANP aka Nurse Practioner bought masks for a majority of us, and I have bought 3 of them, 2 for me and 1 for Patrick for when he has to go out and do things. These are the bomb, 1-you can actually breathe with them on, 2-they’re lightweight, 3- there is a light metal that allows you to ‘pinch’ it close to your nose for complete correct coverage and 4-did I mention you can BREATHE with these on! They are much better made, high quality and low cost, all three masks are costing me, 12.00, that’s 4.00 each!! I will share the 411 on who makes them and if they are accepting orders outside of the local area!

They actually donated masks to the business but OMFG! GET THIS SHIT! someone (powers) decided that the INPATIENT UNIT workers, nurses, therapists, techs, and other related staff, did NOT need masks! WTF! let me spell that out; WHAT THE FUCK! they instead went to the maintenance people! who do not do face to face, one to one with people!! who the fuck decided that they need these masks!

Thankfully, Kelly knew who the mask makers were and ordered an amount for us to purchase from her! I’m grateful to her!! Truly!

Because supposedly, get this, we were given cloth masks that don’t adhere to any safety guideline and informed that we are to acquire 2 of them, and wash them daily! Blah blah blah! ugh

and here’s the drama llama for this post!

Images so far with Isis

Isis is taking her supurrvisor position very seriously! As you can see from the photos:

 

And she needs to stretch a bit more!

She likes the beanie baby I gave her too! 

Patrick went to talk to our elderly neighbor earlier today and she let him pick me some of her lilies! So pretty on my desk and another pro for working at home. Fresh flowers! lol 😉 

Isis returns to check on me! 

And Dudes! She is completely stretched out and asleep on the back of my chair. I’m afraid to get up as I don’t want to accidentally knock her off. Oh man, I shouldn’t have had all that water. LOL 😀

Patrick is no help, I texted him for help!! 😀 Except for fixing me lunch and coffee!! so yeah 😉

And the number 1 reason is?

Leave a comment

NO health issues tonight, I did not have to take any of my nitroglycerin tablets, I had no Anxiety attacks, my blood pressure has stayed at a normal level and I feel good! OMG! I haven’t felt this good about work in a long while!!  Seriously, my number one reason is my HEALTH!!! I have too many stressors in the building still. One of them will be quitting soon. 😉

it wasn’t this good, but damn it was pretty close! Having the kitties helping me out and rubbing on me, was a bonus, I don’t have at work!! it’s true though, the cats do help with my stress and blood pressure levels! I’ve taken measurements of my bp before and after playing with the kitties.

 

Woot!

YAY! I am finally able to work from home! We’re doing telehealth now.

I have lots of pros for this, I’m working from home! I get to spend time with Patrick longer before running off to go to work. We’re saving Gas Money!! The kitties are spending more time with mommy! Case in point:  Isis is helping me out! Or is she Hiding out? lol 🙂 either way, I get to watch the kitties and my blood pressure is doing really well tonight, hasn’t spiked once!

I’m in the comfort of my own home!! Always a bonus, and I’ll be able to drop to sleep as soon as I pass off and not worry about falling asleep when driving.

Yeah, I need to fix the lighting in here better. It is giving me a slight headache. But so far that is the only con! Well that and Patrick coming into my office and going what’cha doing? LOL I have been informing him of when not to come and bug me. He’s really good about that, but the kitties, they don’t care! plus who’re they going to tell? they keep my secrets! lol Basically the door stays shut or his door gets closed!! Cause the kitties don’t like closed doors, they are opened when I’m done with a consult. 😉

I hit the ground running! There will be no NaNoWriMo tonight, I’ve got documentation to get done if I want to leave on time tomorrow morning and I need food! I can feel my blood sugar crashing! Plus I’m getting snarky and cranky!! Need FOOD!

So Up first!

how I’m feeling before I have something to eat!

and to focus on to get through documentation!!

 

it’s that season…

Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year and I feel bad that I haven’t been treating (videos, pix, songs, etc) ya’ll like I have in the past, but it is what it is with my health issues.

I’ve finally decorated my desk tonight and have been cleaning out my office-sending stuff I care about home with Patrick and the rest, I’m going to throw away. Ppl here wouldn’t appreciate them. Ya know, cause I’m a Witch! oooh, scary! lol 😛

The Pumpkin is sitting on a spider and the Harvest Fairy is up front giving us the Blessings of the Harvest season! Yes, Fairy NOT an Angel!!!

I made it! ;)

First third shift and I’ve been cleaning my office to stay busy! 😉 Now if only they would spray for spiders!!! ACK! I almost screamed when one nearly went over my hand!! I’m not amused!! 😦

Normally at this time I’d be getting ready for work and now I’m finishing up what documentation needs to be completed before I leave. Emailing the next shift what is and hasn’t been completed, and emailing the support staff a few things that need to be done during the regular eight to five shift.

So I think the forcing myself to stay awake the past three days really did help me acclimate to the new shift. I’m still trying to figure a time to eat, tonight I did so when I could and I couldn’t wait any longer. Another nice thing about this shift, my lunch doesn’t get stolen. HUH!!! O.O
and oh yeah, the stress level was waaaay lower!

And okay in the weirdness file, I only had one pot of coffee tonight too!! someone mark a calendar! That has to be newsworthy. LOL

So a few more hours and then I’m going home and going to bed!!

Hope ya’ll have a great day!
