Sitting on the fence today: do I tell my Boss Lady that I am really put off by being denied a basic, ordinary 32hr/week job with health insurance because YET AGAIN other nurses 'need' not only to have a full time job, but OVERTIME to boot?


Do I sit, patiently, and wait for unknown entities to act, and for all things silent to my own ears to be said, outworkings unfolding, until I have just the basic 32hr/week job to keep me from becoming homeless?

I didn't even have a regular job at all before this. Now at least I know I will have 2 or 3 days a week to bank on. Then again, I was hired for a 32hr/week position on 2nd shift and no one in authority has told me otherwise.

My gut tells me they're trying to force someone out of a job and they're using me as the excuse.

That's a hard thing to call.

On one hand you could just sit prettily and watch. But then again, if you don't step up and say something (maybe something gracious yet informative - like "Homeless shelters are not my friends") then how will they know you want/need/crave the work? Sometimes agonizing over the right decision is the hardest part.

Again - a tough decision. All the best. And let me know how it goes.

Just Because

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
