happy friday to me!

January 23, 2009

I got up this morning, as usual, a little after 4 a.m. to get ready for work. As I was in the shower, I heard my phone ring. At first I thought it was my alarm, but no – I had turned that off. When I got out, I checked my messages and it was my unit calling me to say that they had too many nurses scheduled for the amount of patients on the floor, so would I like to take a day off?

At first I was, of course, really excited about this. Then, for a split second, I thought, “Maybe I should say no, I want to work. After all, if I stay home I won’t get paid.” But that thought didn’t last long. Everyone will get called off at some point, so why shouldn’t today be my day? Yesterday was my scheduled day off, and I already got all my chores done then. And I discovered some really great sales at Banana Republic, which I would love to explore in greater detail.

So here I sit at home, on my couch. I have already showered and played some Mario Galaxy. I am thinking of reading for awhile and then venturing out to do some shopping. What would you do with an unexpected day off like this?

    From Tabaitha:

    In the days when I used to work, I would get errands done. But seeing that you already took care of chores and such, I would go shopping and get a spa pedicure. That to me is the best way to treat myself to a day for just me. Given that I’m a stay at home mom now, I would probaby do the same, especially since I’m on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
