Shake it Up!

A whole lotta shakin' goin' on....at work. Our nurse just gave her two week notice. In a three person office, this is major stuff. I felt it was coming. I could see (hear) the writing on the wall. It seems that two offers of more money and shorter hours were too enticing to ignore. So, the fear sets in. How long will we be without a much needed third person? Will whoever is hired fit in?

I have to be honest and admit that if something else with more money and better hours was offered to me, I'd be gone. Who wouldn't? (It doesn't help that I was screamed and cursed this afternoon on the phone by someone seeking drugs.) Not much out there for someone with no education though. And considering I have only lived in this town 6 years, but I've changed jobs 4 times, well, I don't really want to look for something else.

I'm praying that God will bring someone perfect in, and that in the meantime, I will be able to cope with doing two people's jobs. The hours are long already, being 8:00 to 6:00, and I REALLY don't want to have to go in earlier and leave later, just to keep up.

Oh, no! That's not good! I was thinking of you yesterday when we were in the surgeons office. Three surgeons had two girls doing just appointments, theirs and co-ordinating with other doctors and another just to run charts. Lemme tell ya'...they were all busier than one-armed paperhangers!!! I feel for you!
