Like playing "Go Fish!" I got what I wanted...

I almost called work around noon today to see if they had enough people on the schedule that I could take PTO (paid time off), stay home, and have a recovery day. Allie has nearly lost her voice to sinus/chest congestion and I have been fighting hard to keep my sinus drainage from doing the same to me. But, I didn't call, because I doubted the possibility, and I figured I was feeling well enough to make it through one night.

So, this evening, when I got up to get ready for work, I got THE call.

Charge nurse: Do you want to stay home tonight?
Me: YES! I feel like crap.
CN: Goodbye!

If I have ever said that I never get lucky, let me amend that statement now. I already have my evening/night planned out. Lounge on couch, watch TV, take Nyquil, sleep (Heavily laced with "Check LJ" of course!).
