It's been so nice having the last week off. I'm dreading having to go to work tomorrow night. I'll be working the next 6 out of 8 days. At least when it's over, I get another week off - I'll just have to focus on that. I'm planning to go to Sea World & also spend a few days at a hotel for some sun & fun. I promised my 8 yr old niece I'd take her with - so hopefully the weather will cooperate. We've had rain every single day throughout the month of June & so far in July also. It hasn't rained here yet today - but it's looking a little cloudy. Hopefully it will pass so it won't ruin the July 4th celebrations. The hurricanes have been staying away also - thankfully.
I got to spend some time with my family, went shopping, watched the Busch race & the Pepsi 400 (woo hoo Tony Stewart). I was happy to see Dale Jr. finally have a decent finish. It's been a long time & hopefully his focus is back.
I also took my niece to see Herbie - Fully Loaded. Cute movie! I saw Mr. & Mrs. Smith last week - good movie. Next on my list is War of the Worlds - just need to find the time to see it.
I haven't really thought much about work during my time off. I have been thinking about the timing of setting up an interview with the other local hospital. Optimally, I would like to remain on staff (per diem) where I'm at now & work there at least 2 days a month (at per diem rates) and work full time at the other hospital - but I am not relying on that to happen. I am not even sure how to go about talking to my manager regarding this. Before anything though, I need to set up an interview & get a job offer. Do I set it up now & tell them I cannot begin until August or do I wait until it's closer to August? I'll figure it out eventually. My only hope this week is that Gina & I are working on the same floor. It just makes it so much easier & fun. So we shall see.
Happy July 4th y'all!!!
