It's a well known fact that if you go into nursing, you will work holidays. There are few exceptions to this, but for the most part, this is the rule.
As a result, I've worked 4 out of the last 8 Memorial Days. And this year, it was my summer holiday to work again.
Except NOT while I'm on orientation! Holla! I have to say, the whole "You don't have to work weekends or holidays while on orientation" rule is awesome!
So instead of spending this gorgeous, sunny- albeit ridiculously hot and crazy windy- Memorial Day stuck inside the confines of the PICU, I get to enjoy it at home, with my man!
Now that's a very happy holiday!
I hope that you are enjoying your long weekend as much as I am. Happy Memorial Day!
