So this week has been unbelievable in a good way.
Earlier this week an opportunity arose for a job as a clinical researcher (research on medications, their interaction with patients, giving shots at flu clinics, drawing blood...stuff like that).
Today yesterday I accepted the job after much thought and feeling like I have been in a huge mental dilemma.
You see, I just started at Hospice last November. Love love love what I do. But being on-call so much is very draining to me and my family. 62 hours of on-call in a 7 day period is too much for anybody! I absolutely LOVE my co-workers and am going to miss them terribly. I hate getting use to a new job also. But this offer I received is an 8-5 job, no on-call and no weekends unless I volunteer to give shots at a flu clinic and I get to travel 3-4 times a year all over the US and maybe even out of the country with the option of being able to take a family member with me. How awesome is this! It is quite a bit less pay but in a way I feel better about it being this way. I am completely in God's hands for meeting our needs fully. The benefits are awesome also. I am still in awe of how great our God is and how He knew my path would take this course when I wasn't expecting it!
A couple of weeks back we broken down and bought a camcorder. Boy do I wish we would have done that sooner! It's not letting me post the video directly on my blog so it's on youtube. Julia is making a huge mess at dinner!
