Wow, I can't believe I've already been in Seattle for a little over two months. This contract has been tough but interesting so far, and I do feel like I'm learning every day. I was recently able to extend my contract until  the week before Christmas. In some ways, I've very excited about this extension: I'll have work until Christmas, and but I'll be able to take the holidays off. On the other hand, that means I'll be in this assignment for another three months. And it's been challenging. Did I bite off more than I can chew? Time will tell, I suppose.

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Before taking this Seattle travel nurse assignment, I had always been a day-shifter. The night shift is turning me into someone basically unrecognizable. Right now, for example: it's a Sunday morning, and I'm awake. Under normal circumstances, I'd be drinking a Bloody Mary and maybe gearing up to watch the Colts game. However, I just got off shift, and I was too tired on the way home from the hospital to stop and get some tomato juice. So, I'm just going to shower and head to bed. A travesty, really.
