A New Leaf.

It’s 2014 guys! Is it just me or is anyone else freaked out?
I suppose we all freak out in our own way at the beginning of a new year: OH my God, it came so fast! I can’t believe it’s January! It’s SO COLD! All of which is pretty much a repetition of what was said the previous year, is it not? Sigh.

I didn’t start out in 2014 with anything too exciting. I had a whole lot of extra shifts lined up at work and lo and behold, I got sick. Yes, yes I did and it was awful. Not to be a whiny pants or anything, but it really does upset me when I get sick and ESPECIALLY when I have to miss work because of it! But as I have stated before, there was no way I was going to go into work, IN A NURSING HOME, while coughing and sneezing all over my residents. So far this year – knock on wood – we haven’t had any flu outbreaks! Go us! And a flu outbreak can be prevented by doing very simple things: Hand washing! Wearing gloves! Staying home when sick! Do all of these sound like common sense things to do? I think so. Yet people still need reminding, every. year.

I am back in the swing of things now, thank goodness. In fact, I have an entire 7 days of straight work a head of me! Well, no. 6 actually, as I completed 1 today. As always, I try to pick up as many hours as I can, when I can.

I hope everyone else’s year is going well so far!
