Today marks my sixth day straight working the memory care unit at Happy Acres, which is a record for MC (another coworker holds the record for most days in a row, period, at 9, but freely admits that I "win" because 5 of those were in assisted living and two were driving residents to doctor's appointments).

As such, here are today's work goals:

^nobody falls
*nobody fakes a fall because they don't feel like they're getting enough attention (yes, we have one who will scream from his room that he has fallen...and he'll be sitting in his wheelchair and can't reach the remote)
^no "events of note" that have to be recorded in the urine/bowel log
*if there are, I manage to sucessfully rein in my inner 15 year old boy and NOT use my brown ball point pen, as corporate does not find this funny
*no one talking out loud to God in the dining room
*no one thinking they're God anywhere, period, unless they can keep their Deity-ness to themselves
*no screaming matches between various incarnations of the aforementioned Deity
*no impromptu exorcisms in the dining room (unless Dr. B is around, because that's comedy gold right there)
*no nonagenarians making a grab for my boobs.  Or my ass.  Or making suggestions that would get a younger man knocked sideways
*not having another coworker telling me how easy I have it because I "only work weekends, and weekends are so chill"  (of course, this is the same dipshit who let a diabetic have Froot Loops AND IS STUDYING TO BE A NURSE!)
*keeping any and all opinions of other coworkers to myself
*clock out at 3:01 and proceed immediately to Trolley Stop for chili dogs, fried pickles, and beer with my sweetie.

Wish me luck.  Here I go!!!!!

You can do it! I believe in you! Have an uneventful (but not boring) day. :)

Memory units are not boring! Anything goes.

Corporate needs to get over themselves.
