SO things are looking pretty good here job wise at least.
I Interviewed today at Florida Hospital East. it went pretty well. I am fairly sure I have the job if I want it. By Mid interview the interviewer was saying the usual key "You're hired" words like, "When you get here you are going to say, blah de blah" And stuff like that. He seemed pretty cool as well.
Thing is Florida Hospital East is a Busy busy place with a few systems that are very unique. The Emergency Department sees 200-300 patients per day. The hospital where I am at now sees about 80-100 patients daily. The pay is entirely more, a whopping seven dollars an hour more which is a very very high rate for Florida. On top of that, the place is nicknamed "The Beast" which doesn't make it sound like a real fun place to work. I am undecided. I wish I could just go stroll through the Emergency Department, but I can't figure out a way to do that.
The pay would be excellent, but I guess I'd be earning each and every penny.
I have been submitted at a few hospitals in Maryland, Virginia and Florida. MD and VA are close to my family and for the holidays that would be cool.
We'll see. I hope some other things come up.
My right leg. It is horrible. The achilles is sore, and apparently using the ellipitical is not so easy on all joints. I'm having a bout of bursitis or siatica in my right hip. Nice. the entire foot has been feeling numb and painful. I'm icing and stretching and resting. Not fun at all. My trainer was off for her appointments today and I knew I was supposed to pool jog but I just didnt, I was so so tired from the interview etc, that I just kind of took most of the day off. I did about 20 mins of strength training and stretching. I feel lazy, but wow does the leg hurt. I have a very loose right hip and it does occasionally start with siaticia or bursitis, so i assume its just flaring. I am looking forward to the flare lessening with great anticipation!
I'm still not dating. I had given up on Sock guy because he didn't call me back. I was at the hosptial today to see a friend who is there, and he happened to be working. I sucked it up and said Hi to him. We talked for a while and eventually I said, You know you never returned my call. He told me a semi-cock and bull story about deleting my message without getting my number. but of course that was a lie. I believe he deleted the message, but you all know there are a billion ways to get a number that called off a cell phone. just click on incoming calls, etc. He also could have called me at work, or asked at work for my number. So, while I did enjoy talking to him, and I did give him my number, I don't expect anything from it. At least I was able to express how I felt when he didn't call back. He seemed distressed that I might be taking the Orlando job as he lives about 70 miles north of Orlando, but, there isnt anything in his town and he is so wishy washy I am unsure what the heck I should do about that. grrrrr. He was very sweet. I think right now so fresh from his divorce that he isnt really emotionally ready to get into a relationship with anyone, including going out on a regular date. It was a little funny though, I said to him I was really surprised when you didnt call me back and then I wondered what I would do with these mens socks! We both laughed.
Not much else going on. THings are pretty up in the air regarding the job. In some ways this is very interesting as there will be new people to meet and things to learn and do. Of course there is also the annoyances of packing and traveling and similarly new things to get acusstomed to and maybe mean people….
