This has been the longest, hardest summer in a long time. I've not had a vacation since November when I took two days off and flew down to see my sister. Compared to all of my trips last year, I'm feeling, well, cranky.
My counterpart on the night shift has been on medical leave since May for knee arthroscopy and was due to come back to work the first week in July. She got a 4 week extension with a revisit to the doctor and won't be back until some time in August (if she doesn't find a way to squeak in more time). All of our contingent staff is covering her days off and there is nobody left to cover any time off for me. It probably wouldn't bother me so much if my colleague hadn't told me how much her shoulders hurt from painting her bedroom. I kind of figure if she can paint, she can work.
Yep. Cranky is the right word.
Today though, I managed to secure a 4 day weekend. I only
Have a great weekend. See ya Tuesday.
