I now have 2 nursing jobs. The first one I started back in January doesn't have as much available work as I need nearby. I'm just not willing to drive more than an hour to a job site. The second job is going to keep me pretty busy starting in July. It looks like I will have more options than nursing home work with the new employer. They have a lot more in home care opportunities.
Road trip week was a week of over indulgence in the food and beverage department! I didn't weigh myself because I didn't want to know! Haha. Tomorrow morning I will "woman up" and step on the scale! I don't think it will be completely horrible, as my work uniforms I recently was able to fit into are still fitting well. One thing I noticed recently is that I need to buy new underwear. Maybe not info that interests you, but I'm excited that the undies I have are too big!
I'm taking a few days to spend with my daughter later this month. It has been way too long since she and I had some focused time together. I can't wait to hang out with her!
I've been very blessed this past 6 months by dear friends and family helping me through some emotionally rough times. All the little jaunts I've been able to take have been such a gift! With work being sporadic, there's no way I would have been able to go all the places I've gone. I'm going to take a little space here to give a shout out to those who made it all possible with their generosity!
Susan, Patti and Ed blessed me with Orlando. Susan gifted me the concert ticket, and I was able to stay at her house part of the time, and Patti and Ed's the rest of the time. They fed me and loved on me well! Fort Myers was a gift from Tracy, Bob, Connie and Gary. They invited me to be the 5th wheel of their group, gave me a bed to sleep in (a friend of Connie's owns the house we stayed in), and showed me a real good time! Tracy paid for my flight and is allowing me to pay her back when work picks up. Love you girl! The road trip recently was brought to me by Deb and Ed. They are so sweet and give me a gorgeous room to stay in when I visit! Many other folks have been kind and made me smile when feeling blue. Life is getting shorter all the time, and I am going to enjoy it as much as possible! To quote a Grateful Dead lyric, "Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait".
Live with love and joy, people!
