Life is busy and wonderful. Frustrating and Exciting. Depressing and Fulfilled. Happy and Thankful. Joyous and Tiring. Did I say busy and wonderful?
I love my job as RN Supervisor on the weekends, and have picked up a couple extra shifts in another area of my company in what is called the Wellness Clinic. I worked there two days last week and saw a handful of older residents who came down for a blood pressure check - or just to see the new nurse who was covering for their favorite nurse who took a week's vacation.
Online education (RN-BSN) is exciting and wonderful. I'm making top grades. It's been 6 of 8 weeks for the first class. My how times flies by! We'll see what the next course holds.
Family news: Grandpa Cash was hospitalized for a few days but has returned to his assisted living apartment and seems to be much improved.
Oldest son announces marriage intentions! We are so pleased because we think his 'intended' is just wonderful, and they make a great couple. No date or place yet.
Youngest son and wife made the move from S.Carolina to Kansas where he has a math teaching position at a middle school. Good luck to them on this new adventure! It's been a real busy time for youngest son as he flew out for a job interview. Flew back and drove a U-Haul 1,200 miles in two days. Flew back to help his wife finish up the packing and drive the car to Kansas. Then, start his new job only a few hours after they arrived! Whew! I couldn't do that anymore.
Hubby has a serious job interview in two days. We're happy for the possible opportunity, but a little nervous and worried that it works out.
Oh, the depression. Well, maybe close. When I got up this morning, I heard geese honking over the house and even saw the shadow of a bunch of them in the sunlight on the living room floor. It hit me that I hadn't heard geese since we left Ohio. The memories of our last place where geese and ducks ate corn at our front door, and deer fed in the back yard brought some sadness for a few minutes. The friends and family we left behind... Of course, I remembered our precious fur-children, Sheba and Ching-Ching. Even if we still lived in Ohio, we wouldn't have them at our sides anymore. Sometimes it's too sad for words.
Happy birthday to Sandy's husband, Craig on August 17. We hope it's a great day and that you get the job you hope for today!
I've been tired all day and almost put off posting here until 'tomorrow', but I know at least one of you checks. This one is for you.
I've posted on my other blogs HERE and HERE
Take Care on the Journey,
Your friend in life,
