I have been so busy since going back to work. I can't seem to spread my time accordingly. My house is a wreck. My laundry is piled up. I feel like I barely see my husband. I have grown to hate my job. Working at a hospital, there's really no way around working on the holidays. Due to being out on maternity leave when everyone was signing up for what they wanted to work, I got totally SCREWED this year. I always work Thanksgiving and always request off for Black Friday. I am scheduled to work Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and CHRISTMAS DAY! I'm going to miss my baby's first Christmas. No one will split the shift with me or trade. I am extremely devastated. I did ask management about it. She said that there's nothing that she can do about it since the schedule is out. I would have to split it or trade with someone. She also said that we would be drawing to see who could get low census to stay home, so I could hope that I get it on one of them! She said I didn't turn in my request off for that Friday in time to get off. I WAS ON MATERNITY LEAVE!!! I was looking for a new job before I went out, and I'm really searching hard now. I can't believe she was so uncaring about it. All I can say is, I hope she has a good time with her family on both holidays while I'm missing both of them. I'm the only one on the whole unit that got scheduled for both of those holidays. I've thought about going over her head to her boss, but I think it will do more harm than good.
But, the moral of this post is that I hope I can be around more soon. I am getting on frequently and reading posts, I just don't have time to reply when I'm getting home so late. DH and I have pretty much working opposite schedules so we are spending as much time together as we can when we can. Due to scheduling conflicts, we aren't going to be able to celebrate our anniversary this year either. I'm really hating my job! Hoping that God will lead me in the direction of what he wants me to do. I'm just waiting!
