Things Looking Up and Up

I really enjoy my patients at my current job and the thought of leaving them just breaks my heart...so I'm not going to. I'm going to work there PRN on the weekends and accept the new job I was offered. Can you believe that I have already been offered the job that I wanted and was trying to build the years of experience to get? I don't know what to say. I'm blessed!

I begin my new job as a hospice nurse next Monday. I am excited and a little scared. I hope that I can handle it and really want it as badly as I think that I do. Getting attached to these patients would not be a great idea, huh? I know I will though...them and their families. I guess I will take it one day at a time and see what happens. I know that my heart is in it and it is where I feel like I should be and that is what counts.

I also get to go back to dayshift! Woohoo! I have barely seen my family for the last month or so working nights and long hours. It has been horrible. And though my husband tries hard...he's not much of a cook. I think the kids are really tired of frozen pizza and hot dogs. :o) Life will be back to some sort of 'normal' and I am so ready for that.
