A few updates:
- I got a call for an interview for a full-time posting in ICU – the morning of December 29 after my two night shifts. The clinical manager sounded very sincere and was accommodating with potential times for the interview. “I don’t want you to have to come in on your day off AND have to fight parking” 🙂 It gives me a tad bit of time to “prepare”. Any tips? A good friend just started working the unit and says the clinical manager makes you feel very comfortable and not intimidated at all. Being a Virgo, I can’t help but write notes and think about potential questions she may ask! Doesn’t hurt to be OVER prepared.
- I’m absolutely dreading this lack of snow. Sincerely, if I wanted to have a green Christmas, I’d have gone on vacation to some remote tropical location. Christmas just isn’t the same without SNOW! Which brings me to my next point ….
- 3 days (since it’s almost midnight) until I get to head home to my parents for Christmas! I work day shift December 21 and 22, and then I am packing Albie (my SUV; he’s white… albino…. alb..ie , yeah) up and hitting the highway the next morning! Big plans for that same day: wrap a few gifts, make a trip to LCBO, meet up with Jules to head across the ditch to shop and go for dinner/drinks. SUPER excited, can you tell?! It truly gives me motivation; it’s something to look forward to.
- I find myself in a different type of mood…. Definitely not a bad thing. ♥
I did quite a bit of shopping today — headed to Winners and a few various stores to check out the selection. My main reason for going out to shop was to find a new filter for my Tassimo. No bueno, did not find any authorized resellers here that had it. However, I did manage to find 4 very cute shirts, a pair of comfy jeans, and (another) cute new winter coat. Typical. I end up purchasing things I never had any intention to even look for. I was relieved that traffic was not as horrible as I had prepared myself to face. Mind you, it was 1pm on a Monday!
I got home shortly after 4pm, and went to check emails
when I plug in my macbook to realize the charger isn’t lighting up. I plug it into a different outlet hoping it’s just that. Nope.
Check the cord: little tiny teeth marks. Seemingly not enough to fffk it up enough to not charge. WRONG. *sigh*. Karma, as the little terrorist (Oscar, my one cat) had chewed my sisters macbook cord the other week. Off to Best Buy I went to buy a newcord. $100. Maybe I should take that money out of his organic holistic kibble funds. Instead- I figured why not go to Pet Smart to buy more as I’m running low. Spoiled little sh*t. I always threaten to bring him back to the ‘pound’ where I adopted him from as a kitten, and he just sits there looking up at me innocently. I’m weak, lol.
Just for fun, here’s Odis as well (the black one):
Even though I am full of energy for some odd reason (night shift, no matter how many days it’s been since one, still messes with my system), I’m going to relax in bed. Amanda and I are going to Tutti Frutti for brunch tomorrow 🙂 Fantastic. x
