I’ve already had a nap, too. Not only that, but as a family we loaded up the car with the recycling (milk bottles, tin cans and paper) and took it out to the bins. We also went to the drug store and got me some Sudafed. Well, it’s actually the store brand, but it’s essentially the same thing with a lower price tag. Now we wait to see if my ears will unplug in the next few days of taking it. My cold is getting better. My voice gives out if it’s dry (and that’s the definition of the winter air here), my Eustachian tubes are plugged up making me deaf and I blow my nose less often than yesterday. So things are improving.
My work schedule is going to be a bit wonky for a while. I’m going to be working 12 to 8 pm Monday to Wednesday and 8 am to 4 pm Thursday and Friday. This is to accommodate another staff who is training for a job elsewhere. When she goes someone will take over her job and I’ll be back at switching days and evenings. I can live with sleeping in three days a week.
Another change that will likely happen is that I’ll not be working Friday evenings (it’s a short shift of only 4 hours) because they want to hire someone casual but still give a few hours a week to her. That will mean she’ll get that shift and the Sunday 4-midnight shift. It’ll guarantee hours and we’ll have someone on-call in case someone else is sick.
I won’t be going to Drumheller Penitentiary nor to Bowden Institution as we’ve gone over budget for the recruitment trips. That’s ok though. There’s always next year for that. I’m still going to Edmonton and Grand Cache later in the month. And now that I have pseudo-Sudafed I’m all set, ear-wise.
Tomorrow is our day of rest and recreation. I’m thinking of watching Redwall and/or murder and mayhem while beading. This will mean that I’ll be offline for the day.
Such excitement. I know you’re on the edge of your seats.
