Mini Vakay

Despite my bodily flexibility rivaling rigor mortis at times (actually between the hours of 0300-0600), I have to pat myself on the back and congratulate myself for my gravity defying scheduling acrobatics. By switching some shifts around, giving a couple away and bribing and weaseling my way through admin (food counts as bribes), I managed to get almost a week off from work. Freedom has been embracing me in its glorious warmth (or the 35C temperature) and I have been doing everything from cleaning my house, enjoying nature and not getting pissed off at people who congregate in herds and then move slower than a speeding slug, catching up on non-medical themed literature and watching many hours of Glee. Freedom also explains the dearth of blogging this week but I’ll be back next week in fighting form! Enjoy all of your days whether you’re working on not!

Enjoy your time off, Maha. You deserve it.

That is a WISE plan, Maha!!!

How are the hospitals up in Canada? I'm thinking of jumping the border come August in search of ED/ER jobs...

Yeah, Maha! Enjoy this time off! I hope you are doing great (it sounds like you are). Finishing third night in a row here tonight, can't wait until 6 am!

Thanks everyone :)

Little d - depends on where you want to work. Hospitals in big cities like Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto etc are usually hiring but I've been hearing about hiring freezes. However, rural nursing is always in demand. If you want more detailed info, feel free to email me at nur_maha@hotmail.com

StorytellER - 6am will soon be here and you'll be reunited with bed and home. Hope you have a good shift!

Sweet! Enjoy the stay-cay!

I am counting the days to be back on the Motherland's Soil...taking some time in your neck of the woods to visit Manfriend before heading out West to work for the summer. Hoping those crazy hot days jump down a few degrees before I get there.

My summer reading recommendation: Shantaram (if you haven't already). Or anything by David Sedaris.

Enjoy your vacation, lady!

Sounds like fun...vegging out is the best thing ever when overstimulated.

SO good to get away. Even the stay-cations are terrific.
