The downside to being a nurse is that you don't often get holidays off. So while the rest of the free world stayed home or hit the stores, I trotted off to work. It turned out to be only half a day, but I wasn't complaining as I could run some errands.
The other downside to being a nurse is that because you have to work holidays, you sometimes expect that the rest of the free world keeps the same schedule as you do. I was rather frustrated when running my errands and finding that the post office, the bank, the dentist, and several other businesses were closed.
Can't win either way. Oh well :) I think it's time to put on an old movie and work on Wales.
Happy Boxing Day.
