Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen

It appears as though the staffing disaster at Hope Care Center has finally been resolved...a week before I stop working there.

Oh, hey...did I tell you I was leaving?

Anyway, after nearly four months, 20+ interviews, five failed hires (pesky background checks and drug screens) and one temp, it seems we have scored two really great gals who fit quite well into our department. Well, I guess it's Chef's department. I'm just along for the ride for the next week.

I realized tonight that I haven't had a real weekend since January. I've only enjoyed two consecutive days off a handful of times since then as well. When I entered the kitchen a couple of days ago and they were both there, along with Chef, I didn't know what to do. Finally a case when too many cooks in the kitchen is a good thing.

So as clearly we are now abundantly overstaffed, I'll take off my chef's coat for the last time next Friday afternoon. One quick real weekend and then off to class on Monday morning. The times, they are a changin'.
