New Job

I start my new job tomorrow. Well, I start the hospital orientation tomorrow. That part lasts 2 days and then I have general nursing orientation for 3 days. Next Monday I actually start working on the floor. I'm nervous and excited. It is different from anything I have ever done as a nurse so please keep me in your prayers. I think it will be fun but I also have a lot to learn. I'm nervous about interacting with all the new people. I'm also very anxious about being away from Makenna. In January I will be working more than twice what I would have worked if I still worked weekends in the ER. I know it will be very hard to be away from her that much. My milk supply has also been a little low this last week so I hope it will last and that my supply will pick up. It will be a big change for all of us but I hope I'm doing the right thing for my family. I feel like God has opened up this opportunity for me and I know he will help us work out all the kinks. It will be nice to be off most weekends so I can spend time with DJ. I'm also not used to getting up early and I will have to get up about 4:00am so pray that Makenna will start to sleep better. I think this new job will be a great opportunity for me. I guess we'll see soon enough.

I thought you were still going to be part time? Who's keeping Makenna? Good Luck. You will do fine. Just takes getting used to.

Not sure what I did but when I reloaded the page the "one knee crawl" video came up- too funny!

As for your new job- you'll be great. You will be in my prayers-but you will be great and you will have weekends off so maybe I can see you too! :)
