This week I started my new job as a CNA(Nurse Aide) at a cute little 50 bed facility. I lOVE IT! I have people who are independent and I have people who are totally dependent. I have dementia patients and I have sane people. I have sweet old grannies and mischievous old grandpas…. And a few young’uns as well. It doesn’t matter who it is, they all make me LAUGH! I know it’s terrible to be amused by someone who is trying to punch you in the face, but it’s like a toothless turtle trying to bite your finger off…
This past week I’ve trained for a grand total of 24 hours. I work 12 hour shifts so I spend two days training. Yesterday I officially worked without shadowing someone. I was kind of apprehensive but it went really well. I got out 5 minutes early. Yay!
I’ve also been learning a lot spiritually. God’s been really hitting me over the head about trusting Him. Go figure. At the new church I’ve been going to the past two sermons have hit me right in the chest. I figure it’s a sign from God that I’m attending the right place.
I have also learned that my new neighbors, a bunch of college aged guys, have friends with a pension for breaking and entering…. or at least attempting it. Me and my sister were watching a movie. We had just finished when we heard rattling on the door. The neighbors were having a party and one of their guests was trying to get in. It didn’t work so they went back to the neighbors house and got some backup. They tried to get in again and when they couldn’t get in spent a few minutes loitering and being loud in my driveway. Needless to say we called the cops and the party didn’t last much longer than that. I don’t care what happens on the other side of the fence… just don’t let your people cross the property line. Idiots. Can’t even B/E correctly.
