The Virus~   Leave a comment

I was tested positive for the coronavirus last Wednesday

Today is day 5 of it.

Yesterday I thought I was really sick and felt like I was dying.

Today I feel decent.

Have a small headache and a cough but otherwise feel almost 100 % better.

It is a nice feeling to feel halfway normal again.

I think I have had a decent time of it because I have been taking vitamin D for months.

And I read somewhere that people who take vitamin D are less likely to get it.

So I got it due to working with the twenty residents that have it at work (three have since died) but I do believe I got a mild case of it.

Still off of work till Saturday.

I may shoot for Monday just to have the entire weekend off.

Just have to see how I feel.

Barely living   Leave a comment

I feel like all I do is work and sleep

I had Sunday off and had a decent day but didn’t get everything accomplished that I wanted

Now I am back to work for the next 4 nights and I feel like I didn’t get enough time off

I have half a notion to call in sick one of these nights

I feel like life is passing me by and I am barely living in this life

I long for the day when I can retire


Just seems so far off ….

Tonight is night 10 of 11

I can see the end is near

I have Sunday off and that means most of Monday too

It is wonderful knowing it is almost over……

Next week I work Monday through Thursday nights and then have the weekend off

So 4 nights in a row won’t be bad

We have staff returning from having the coronavirus so that is great too

Now if we can just get rid of the coronavirus and get Trump out of the white house life will be great

Honestly it is pretty great regardless

Day 7 of 11   Leave a comment

I am on my seventh night in a row working with 4 more to go

I hate it

The job isn’t hard I just hate having to work period

I want to be free of it

I want to just enjoy what is left of my life without having to work

I know in 5 years and 8 months I will be able to retire

It just seems so far away and I feel like I am missing out on so much

Really wish I was rich

Yeah we got it~   Leave a comment

We got the coronavirus at work.
After all of this time we finally got it.

Fifteen of our thirty residents have it.

Two were just send to the hospital.

I am very afraid that we are going to lose a lot of residents to this crappy horrific disease.

I hope I am wrong.

I am working eleven nights in a row, ten pm till six am because we are short.
We have at least five staff members out so there isn’t enough people to cover all of the shifts, so I volunteered to work the eleven in a row.

I am sure it will be touch.

I just finished up night two, but it is necessary and some of my coworkers are working twelve plus hours every single day.

So I can do my part.

Hate this virus as I know everyone does.

Not thrilled~   Leave a comment

Please explain to me why things have to change.

Take blogging for instance

The format was just fine, but nope they have to go and change it.

Ticks me off.

I liked it the way it was.

AND they don’t ask if I care if they change it, they just change it.

Annoys the hell out of me.

Yeah I may be tired and maybe even easily annoyed but still.

There was nothing wrong with it before.

They don’t need to change things.


And they took away the easiness of downloading a picture.

Ugh again!

Now that I have…..   Leave a comment

Now that I have been working 12 hour shifts for a week I have to say I am not thrilled with it

I LOVE working just 3 days a week but 12 hours is a long time to work

I will plug away with it until the beginning of next year but not sure I will work this indefinitely

Just not thrilled with it

Of course I prefer to not work at all but alas that is wishful thinking
