Work and more Work

 The upcoming month is one of much work for me. It is good in a way, as I think it will make the month go by faster – closing the gap until I can be back with my hubby, and not so good in another way, as sometimes the nights are really long and rather unstimulating. I think that I have reached the point where the novelty is gone, so I guess it is time for me to change perspective. I am very grateful for this time, as I am having time to work on Step 11, and I am enjoying the time for instrospection.

While I am enjoying being in Labor and Delivery again, I am aware that this isn’t something I want to do long term, and yet I am not sure exactly what I want to do long term. I have this ideal of wanting to open my own practice, or go into practice with another holistic practitioner (the latter being more likely), but I am not sure right now how to go about doing that, or even if that is the next step. I have been looking into jobs again and nothing in particular is striking my bell. Well, many positions look interesting, but I don’t see myself doing any of them long term….except that is, for maybe teaching. I have applied for an adjunct faculty position at Belmont University. I am excited and nervous about the prospect. I feel confident that I can do it, and think I will find it challenging and stimulating – but it will be a big change, that is, if I am even considered for the position. Ah well, wait and see. But I think it might be night to step into another realm of nursing for a while.

Enough for now. One thing I am sure about, is that I would really like to go back to a daytime position. This night flopping is not as fun as it used to be 🙂 This said at 5am having been up since 1am on my night off. hehe!!
