We've moved! It's been a lot more stressful than I ever imagined. I really needed to request more days off than the 2 that were "absolutely necessary"... because really, the reason I needed them off was because I had other plans! All day Friday was spent moving (exhausting!!), and then Saturday was spent cleaning the old place, and then attending Ben's wedding. So really, we didn't have time for anything else. And now the entire house is covered in boxes, I can't even make it to my side of the bed, and I find myself scrambling to find the time to do everything I need to before working every day. It's pretty rough.
On the bright side, work has really turned around. I'm working the other side now, and it's a LOT easier. (As a note of explanation... the way it works at this place is, the entire building is divided between 4 nurses, so each has a corner.... NE, SE, NW, and SW... which he/she is responsible for. I've been training on SE, which is the hardest one, and am now working NE.) So anyway, the patients are all stable, the medications (the main job of the nurse, here) are easy... as in, not too numerous... and I basically take an hour for lunch every day and take my time and still don't get stressed. Some days I have to hustle, but really, work has become the relaxing part of my day lately.
I have pictures, and as soon as i dig out my USB cable for my camera, I will post them. And as soon as I get pictures of the place all finished and unpacked and set up (which may be several months yet), I will post those, too.
I hate moving.
