Thanksgiving Vacation


We do not celebrate Thanksgiving in the Philippines but I am happy to be off from work comes the 25th and 26th. Yes, some of us were allowed to go on vacation leave because we are expecting less call by then.  Our team captain approached me if I want to go and vacation and he got a positive reply from me. It is not that easy for us to go on vacation leave. I am happy for being given the opportunity to have a rest day along with some of my officemates.

The vacation leave is just the right timing. I have cold this time. Although manageable because of the cold medicines I am taking. It will give me time to rest and sleep with gusto. I seldom get sick but when I do. I would like to rest for fear I might end up in a hospital. We do have hospitalization benefit but being at the hospital makes me sicker. Why? It is because I am unable to rest being at the close watch of a nurse, getting my temperature every now and then. In line with duty, a nurse has to write something on the clipboard for the doc to see the progress of the patient. If the hospital has a nursing school, pray that a throng will not come inside your room to ask you how many times had you visited the toilet. Oh, no please do not get me wrong. I have nothing against the nursing profession. Nurses are doing a noble job. I am just saying I am not comfortable being at the hospital, okies? Likewise, please do not be alarmed I am alright.

To some of my American friends who are to celebrate Thanksgiving, please take it easy on the drinks. After Thanksgiving there will be Christmas to spend your precious dollars with your godchildren.

I agree, turkey is kind of like a really strong chicken and not so good.
Hope you have a good rest and get better soon, I agree with you about hospitals you don't get much rest.

Hope you are feeling better. Always feels like such a bummer to get sick during time off.

@Michael Clyde- I guess it is just the right timing to get sick. At least I am off from work. I really do not want to use my sick leave not because I want to boast I got good health. It is because our unused sick leaves are convertible to cash. On the contrary unused vacation leaves are forfeited. Welcome abroad! :)
