Sometimes Staffing Issues are Beneficial

   How sweet it is!

   You know how it goes, when you’re a nurse. You work your assigned holiday weekends. It’s fair.

   Sometimes, the department you work for has a low census, and your shift gets cancelled, because they don’t need you.

   I got cancelled for the entire holiday weekend, due to low census.  This feels like a gift from the universe (but it actually was Friday’s charge nurse who made it happen), after working my tush off all week installing The Acorn Contains the Tree and “One more than four” at Anka Gallery.

Have a happy holiday!
