And so the pendulum swings.

We seemed to be in the business of losing employees there for a while. Now, suddenly, we've got a bunch of former employees coming back. Good ones, to boot.

Have I ever mentioned how much smoother things go with the right group of employees? Even on nights when we're short-handed, it's so much easier when everyone can work together. Then we don't end up with a time where everyone is stubbornly on break at the same time or one hall gets all the attention while the other hall's residents are left in the lurch.

Last night was one of those nights. Even though we had an employee leave early, we still were able to take care of everyone with hardly a glitch. (Well, except for the woman who was trying to hit people with her doll. But that's another story for another day.)


Quote of the day:

"What are you up to, Mr. A?" the CNA asked.

"Oh, just waitin' for my celly."

(I know. Another prison reference. I still found it hilarious.)
