Ok, I finally made it

Yay!!!!! My last day of work was Thursday, as urology advice nurse. I was sad to say goodbye to the people I work with, they are all very kind, and they made a nice potluck and a card, and everything. BUT, I am glad to be done, it will take me while to get it out of my system, I find myself thinking and worrying about work things, why? Because that job was way too intense and overshadowed my life for the past year. I guess I learned a lot about urology, and I learned about what I am good at and what I am not. I also learned that I can overcome some things I am not good at, but not for extended periods of time. I don't do well with several things flying at me at once, but the practice of thinking on my feet was good for me.
Now what? I think there are plenty of things to keep me busy for a while, I will need to get a job in nursing so that my license stays active, but it can wait a bit, no hurry. I must complete 960 hours in the past 5 years to satisfy the practice requirements. I have worked half time for the last 2 years, 20x98=1960 hours, taking into account vacations etc. I am well over the 960 hours just in the past year alone. So I can take some time and give my family some time. What a joy that will be.
It's a great morning, I hope that everyone has a wonderful day. We have a broken step that needs fixing, grandpa and grandma are coming over to help. We are all kind of fighting a cold/flu bug and I seem to be winning so far, but what a pain!
Take care all, God's blessings and joy be with you.

Hi Patty Jo, sure that is fine, link away! I'm glad you enjoy the ramblings, I enjoy writing them. Thinking out loud, with the added bonus that someone overheard you. Have a great week.

Bunch of sickies - bah, bah, stay away you nasty germs. You have one week to fix everything, then it's superbowl time - no sickies then; K?

Well, I for one am doing my best, I am shoving pills down my sweet husband's throat every time he opens his mouth. I am making homemade soup, rubbing his poor tired feet and basically babying him for all I'm worth. If he is not well by this weekend, you can just call it an act of God and take your lumps like a big boy. However, knowing him, he'll drag his tired body to the kitchen, heat up some beandip and click the TV on anyway, you're welcome to join him, wear your HEPA mask, capice? (because of the bugs, not the bean dip)

You are a urology nurse? That is extremely interesting.

I used to have to see a urologist. I hated him. More than most people probably hate their urologists. I told him he was another Joseph Mengela. Should give you some idea.

I could only imagine that your job would have been very demanding.
It's nice to get some time just to be with the kids. I know I enjoy it. This sounds like a good move --- good for you! :)

Oh Sharon, that's too funny, Mengela eh? I can relate. However, I am really a nurse who just happens to work in urology this time around, I have done a whole lot of other jobs besides that and I can't really say I have any one specialty, jack of all trades, master of none? Thanks for your comments, I appreciate them!
