Good Morning, Viet Nam LJ!

I'm awfully chipper for being up at the ungodly hour of six aye-em this morning, going for a blood draw reboot. I found the place this time, and it took about 2 minutes. It helped that this time there was a line of officers. I'm glad I went in civies, they let me cut since they could see it was my day off. It's always odd to see 3rd shifters in the morning though - like I'm looking at them upside down.

So I got my blood drawn by an almost-competant nurse (all FIVE vials!) without passing out or even getting dizzy. Go me! And then I stopped off at Stargasmbucks and got myself a nice tall coffee treat for being so good. Which I am currently sipping merrily. Chucked some bills in the mail on the way home so I won't have to go anywhere. I'm bound and determined not to leave the house at all until Tuesday except for work. I hate holiday weekends - people act like they've escaped from the special needs ward. Which probably won't happen because they still haven't fixed the washing machine, and when I went down to the first and second floor to steal their machines for a bit, I found they've all been removed. Ye gods, but management had better return or replace them quick. Or they shall suffer the wrath of me. After all, my tongue lashings are the tongue lashiest toung lashes in tongue lash town. Darn tootin. I might just be out of skivies. maybe.

However, I have plans to enjoy my single day off today by catching up on just about everything. And relaxing. And there may be a nap thrown in there somewhere.

Oh, and new Sammy Icon FTW.
Back to work today. I'm not all that excited about it. I'll have to pass meds on my first shift back after training with no one to help me. I should mention that if you mess up on meds you're immediately terminated, do not pass GET THE FUCK OUT, do not collect unemployment. So I'm a teeny tiny wittle bit nervous. There won't even be another trained person there tonight to ask questions. In my unit it's me and a part timer and in the other unit it's an untrained full timer and part timer, and with Secure Housing giving me the UBER silent treatment, I'll have to pass meds in both units. EEP.

OTOH, it's Saturday which is historically the most stressless day of the week. No programming or school, limited visitation, usually only a few home passes. The only downside is that a bad Saturday is a bad day. One week we had 5 visits, 2 psych evals, and 4 home passes and appointments. It was a nightmare. *please don't let today be that day* And unless our numbers jumped back up, we should only have about 8 kids. Much easier to deal with than the 14 we had on Monday. *shudders* It seems the county is trying for the catch and release program, tagging all the minors and releasing them back into the wild.

I think I'll take Serenity in and make the kids watch it. If I have to watch one more Adam Sandler movie I might stable my forehead. You know, just for funsies.
