The weekend is almost here. You know how sometimes when you take a short nap in the afternoon, and then wake up it takes you awhile to figure out what day of the week it really is. Well that was how it was this afternoon. Talk about feeling disorganized. It has to be it is when each day is pretty much the same when you don't get up to go off to work each morning for five days a week. Hey, I plan a few things to do and get done each day. Plus I am very flexible about everything.
My husband at his workplace yesterday, was pulled aside by the two women top people and was told that he is being suspended for one day, but they can't do it because they are so short staffed for nurses. How trival the reason for this, he checked off that a resident had their teeth brushed, apparently they checked and told him that really didn't happen. Well, my husband actually brushed this resident's teeth. See we figure there is an agenda. They want to fire him because he has been there 16 years and is making over $32.00 an hour, plus he never gets off his work shift on time, it is usually at least 1-2 hours longer. So first the set-up reprimand of their not being satisfied with his charting. He hasn't had problems with his detailed charting before. Till now this. Like we both know, they have an agenda. So he has to get up and running and find another nursing job. It seems that sometimes it is more comfortable staying in a job, no matter how bad they treat you. He has to decide. Maybe for him, this is what he needs to get moving on looking for another nursing job. I feel that he has to find something so there isn't so much stress. For example, last night he comes home, around midnight, and he goes to bed. He tossed and turned and flipped and flopped. Finally around 3 am, he gets up, so I get up. He calls work and talks with the nurse there, and they discuss something. He says to me he has to go in to do some more charting to make sure that his charting won't be questioned by these two women administrators. So he comes back home close to 5 am. Now he didn't get alot of sleep, and he has a few more nights to work in a row. I can't imagine working under such conditions, that no matter how hard you try or on your days off, you can't stop thinking about work, and wondering what they will find that they aren't satisfied with and call you to come in on their beck and call. So with this all said, he has to move on and seek a new nursing job. Enough said, so that is why most days, I need to take an afternoon nap right now.
I have House Hunters International on right now. It is fun to watch because it is a distraction from the reality of being involved in my husband's sucky work life. It is nice to watch people who seem to have alot of money and can go somewhere that is beautiful, peaceful, and stress free. I so wish that we could do this. I would in a moment, move somewhere like what I see on House Hunters International. If only I was able to afford such a dream. If only wishes were everyone's reality, how awesome everyone's life would be.
