The "broken necks" are all the people who peek in as they walk by and then do spectacular double takes. Monday we were up to 21, when the maintenance man almost did a back flip and then just stood there gaping.
1. Why are YOU in orientation?
I was gone for 2 years.
2. 2 Years? Really?
3. You still have to work nights?
I prefer nights, actually.
I do basic orientation, (fire safety, lift use, policy/procedure, etc.), for 5 days. Then I start the Night Schedule with orientation . . . for one night. The Director of Nursing wanted to know if that was okay. Sure, no problem, if I need help, they won't leave me flapping in the wind!
2 days to packevery centimeter of the car, up to the tops of the seats, (I could still see out all mirrors).
2 customs check points to get through, (I would have sobbed pitifully if I drew the short straw for inspection, cuz it never would ALL fit in again).
1 border guard after asking if I had any personal protection in my vehicle and I replied 2 small dogs, looked in and asked "WHERE?!"
Always snow in London Ont., I always ask the weather as I cross in, and I SWEAR they said it in August once.
1 -360 right in front of me, the Impala was so loaded she did not even shudder or skid.
2 -5 car accidents in Brantford Ont. slowed my progress a bit.
3rd snow squall of the trip at midnight just past Rochester NY. Good time to stop and sleep for an hour.
1 engine temp. guage stopped working . . . uh-oh?
1 NY thruway booth keeper and former mechanic said the car was more then likely OK for the rest of my ride and it was probably a loose wire. He was right on both counts.
6am Friday arrived at my Home.
It took a day to get everything out of the car . . . who knows how long it will take to put everything away. (not as easy as it sounds . . . the house was set-up for emergency guests, and needs to be converted back to MY living here. example: bedroom linen in the dresser of that BED's room rather then in the main linen closet . . . so guests would know what linen went with which bed.)
