Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

Bringin' Home The Bacon

So somebody else can cook it.

Yippeee!! I get to watch the debate!!! I had been trying to figure out how I was going to work four hours tonight, go to ensemble practice, and watch the debate- all within a six-hour period (assuming I would get to bed by midnight). I have been asked by the hospital to work 20 hours per week for them. I had been averaging about 12-15 per week, which sometimes was tough, but I think I have arranged the week to allow me to work the hours they have requested. Dr. Fennell has returned from medical leave, though only part time, so I’m trying to squeeze in a little time each week for him as well. It makes for a pretty grueling work week, but in my line of work, prudence dictates very careful consideration before turning away clients/work opportunities. I know that going into winter and flu season there will probably be enough work to keep me busy those 20 hours, but then there will be times in the spring and summer that I can go back to fewer hours. Though a struggle at times, it really is a win/win for me. The compensation is excellent, and it is work I can do from home in my jammies. I miss sleeping in on Saturdays, but I find as I get older that I simply can’t loll about in the bed until noon anyway. Maybe there is some urgency that I don’t have as many years in front of me as I do behind me, so I don’t want to spend it sleeping in? Maybe. At any rate- this morning there was an e-mail from Tammy, transcription supervisor at the hospital, that the work load is manageable for them today and I can be off tonight! How cool is that!!
