Filling the void.

I was instructed by someone to start posting more often. So, in honor of his request, I will post the following information on my currently uber exciting life.

Lets see....

This month alone, Ive worked 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24. And im working 28, 29, 30. (OH I took the 29th off, wedding). I was sick 2 weeks ago, and now im sick again....

That pretty much sums it up.

Hope it was as exciting for you to read, as its been for me to post. Feel free to comment!!!

The Midnight Disaster

I worked 2 overnights at the shelter this week....

I havent worked an overnight since living in Massachusetts at the residential facility.

I forgot how boring they are.

However, women in crisis, are usually a lot more enjoyable, and make the time go faster than a bunch of conduct kids who are sleeping...EXCEPT when those kids were escaping, or trying to kill each other....those nights were fun.

We have a bunch of women right now that are exceptionally high needs. Ugh. When I say high needs...think of the highest needs, most demanding person you know, and multiply that by 10, and then times that number by 9, because thats how many women are in shelter right now....

Ambulance...Regional police....incident reports...serious occurrence forms.....crisis lines.......medication...medication....medication.....All by myself, with only the crisis lines to keep me company.

Usually we are double staffed but on midnights, you're all by yourself. Im just bitching, but im glad they're over, and I cant see myself working another for in a long time.

I went to see Halloween tonight...Im a fan of Rob Zombie, Devil's Rejects is in my top 10 of all time for certain...However, As well im a fan of Halloween...

Reader Beware: If you are a fan of the original Halloween, this movie might not be for you, as it was "not" for me....If you are a fan of Rob Zombie, this movie is EXACTLY for it was for me.

Rob Zombie film = 3 out of 5 stars...
