Tomorrow is Monday!

I really hate working on the weekend. I like having my weekends off to relax and spend time with the Hubby. It just kills my weekend to work on Saturday. Sunday is usually my day to set up for the week ahead, so I end up doing housework and home management stuff on the one day I have off. I think it is going to make me extra grumpy on Monday.

Yesterday was not too awful at work. The whole day was overtime for me because I had already worked 40 hours that week. That was sort of nice. The one thing which made it a headache was this new computer thing at work. They "went live" yesterday. It was not so very awful for OR because the program is not linked to our OR documentation, but we did have to do some things in the program. (Specimens, report to floor, and chart review.) Sort of annoying because some of the practice exercises did not look like the live program. Also our "superuser" was not very helpful. I hate to think what is going to happen on Monday. I suspect the front desk will be chaos, and we may have printer problems as all of are trying to print out pathology forms at the same time. The worst part of the whole day was that I could not go home and medicate with alcohol because I was on call that night. Sigh. At least I can drink tonight in preparation for Monday. Small comfort, though.

Hubby is sick with a cold today. I really do not feel like doing any nursing today, as I had errands and chores to do today. I get paid to do nursing now anyway. (I have noticed I am lot less sympathetic since I became a nurse.) I also wanted some downtime today just to chill out. I bought him cold medicine and cough drops and orange juice, and I am not asking a lot of him today. He volunteered to vacuum the floors. I think he feels a little bad about not doing a lot to help clean house this week. I am letting him vacuum. I think he sort of likes using the Dyson, anyway, so it is not as awful as it sounds.

I hope everyone has a good Sunday!

Oooh, not good having to work on Saturday, it must ruin your whole weekend and you don't get to feel very rested come Monday morning!

I imagine that the IT department will be going crazy on Monday morning!!

My Hubby is a vacuumer, too. He actually vacuums so thoroughly it embarasses me a bit to think I mostly just vacuum where people walk at. I guess we are making up for each other's strengths and weaknesses!

Since we bought our Dyson my husband does all the vacuuming. He loves seeing how much dirt gets sucked away in it. I love that I don't have to do the vacuuming.

I hate how Sundays turn into "work" days as well. My house always needs cleaning then, and DH DOES NOT HELP AT ALL! So it is all up to me. I sucked out yesterday and didn't clean, so tonight it is!!

hope he feels better soon

Funny. My husband's mother was a nurse and he said the same thing about her...though it's easy to see why! Hope the rest of the week goes more smoothly...
