106 degrees Fahrenheit at the Homestead today. We don't have air conditioning, so I went to Paradise to do the laundry while the girls went to the community swimming pool.
While firing up the barbecue for dinner I got a call from work .
"Can you work a 12 hour shift tomorrow?" the Nursing Supervisor asked. A hint, if you are needing additional hours, never, ever turn a Nursing Supervisor down. They want their staffing problems solved quickly, and will call the most likely person who will work.
So I said yes, and within fifteen minutes I had my car packed, the dog scratched and said goodbye to the women in my life.
Three and a half hours later, I made it to the hospital. Got my room at the Monastic Dorm. Turned on the air conditioner (the room was like a furnace) and went for a walk. I watched a helicopter come in with a patient. The night is very, very warm. Even humid. I walked for twenty minutes around this small community.
Now it is back to the (hopefully) cooler room for a bit of shut eye before my early start tomorrow.
