I feel like I’ve been constantly at work since I came back from Atlanta. I had my first real day off since the trip today so… I have been editing the photos all morning and I found the one posted above to be interesting. I don’t have a favorite photo from this shoot yet, but there are quite a few I like so far *smiles*. I went out to Grand Cru again last night for several hours and then returned after taking my daughter home from the movies. I probably had a little too much wine over the course of the evening, but I won’t complain, the wine was excellent as usual. I truly enjoy going there. The atmosphere is wonderful and everyone there – the patrons and the staff – are fun to engage in conversation.
I haven’t made much progress with my writing, but at least it’s not at a standstill. The good thing is that with my visits to Grand Cru and coffee shops I am getting a lot more inspiration for things to write. Time isn’t wasted as long as you have gained something from your experiences.
When I was at work yesterday the pharmacist on duty (who happens to be our new manager) took time to teach me and another co-worker something. A doctor had written for MS Cotin, which my co-worker knew was Morphine Sulfate… But neither she nor I knew what the Cotin stood for… She did select the right medication when she keyed in the prescription though. Our manager asked us if the doctor had ordered for imidiate release or continuous release… and we weren’t sure… He asked us what we would do if we had to fill the prescription, which one would we pick? Well, we didn’t know… He gave us time to think it over and try come up with the right answer, but we still weren’t sure. So he explained to us that Cotin stands for continuous release…. so… The correct medication was Morphine Sulfate continuous release. I really like the fact that our new manager takes the time to teach us in a way that shows he believes we can figure things out and doesn’t make us feel stupid for not knowing the answer. He also gives an explination for why something is the right answer instead of just saying “it’s this” because otherwise we wouldn’t learn a thing. I like my job!!
