Spring Is In The Air
Ahhhh! Spring! Or if you live in the South, we go directly from winter to summer. It's HOT! Anyway, I haven't posted in quite awhile because I've been so busy. What is it about springtime that makes people move or change jobs? In the last few weeks I've lost half of my technician staff. Luckily, it's all been for good reasons like promotions and college. I had one tech get accepted to pharmacy school. I like to think I was at least a partial influence on that decision. So, I've been busy trying to re-staff. That is so difficult! A good tech is just so hard to replace. We all know how it is; you get so comfortable with a tech that you can anticipate each other's next move. They know what to expect out of the pharmacists and we know what to expect out of them. It's symbiosis at it's best. When in tune we run like a well-oiled machine. Now I have to replace some of that machine's parts. The whole training process starts all over again. Fortunately, word got out that I needed techs and I have had a flood of phone calls from other stores' techs that have had their hours cut, so I have a good pool to pull from. So, that's what I've been up to not to mention some physical ailments that have been taking up my time. I'll try to post again soon, but for all my readers, I just wanted you to know that I'm still here. I spend alot of time reading other blogs as well. So, everyone have a great spring!
