So, I’m now suddenly in the interesting and amusing Dilemma of being between a rock and a hard place.
I have six weeks left in NH. I’ve been submitted to three hospitals in Colorado, all of which look to be interesting places to go and explore. Today I was asked if I might “Extend” my NH contract for 6 more weeks. Tempting….
This contract is actually quite good. I enjoy the job, and for the most part, my co-workers. They do nice things for me like bring me fresh eggs and garden produce. Extending for Six weeks woul allow me a week off at Thanksgiving time, which is a rarity in itself and would make my family happy. My pay would also increase ever so slightly as they would factor in about a 400.00 bonus in over the six weeks.
I won’t be offerred a contract in Colorado for a few more weeks based on the way things usually go…(The Hospitals post a need and they want it filled, like yesterday, they don’t plan six weeks out.) So, I’m stuck. I may not get any of the three contracts in Colorado. New contracts may or may not come up.
The Cons of staying are that I have new downstairs neighbours. The Man I recognize because I have treated some of his ailments in the ER here (Yeeech not very nice ailments as it goes), the Woman is crude and I hear her swearing all the time….plus they smoke and the smoke drifts up into my top part of the house. (Yuck). Plus I have learned that I am not too fond of ten hour shifts.
But to be honest I can not decide. I’m always looking to hedge my bets. What I’d really like is to be offerred one or more Colorado Contracts and be offerred to extend at the same time, so I could just choose like a princess, but….
Well…..I’m working night shift tonight, and thinking on it a bit, but for the moment I think I’ll let it sit and see what bubbles up….
and hope that my new computer arrives….SOON, so I can upload some photos to make the Blog more interesting.
