I've been thinking about blogging, I have a TON of photos from my Vacation with my Mom
BUt I really have been so so stressed out that I have not had any time.
I started my job on Monday the 25th. The entire week was completing forms, watching videos, and learning the new computer charting system.
I made the right choice in moving to this hospital, I think. It is definitely "behind" the Hospital I came from and YEARS behind Duke where I came from long ago. The positive part of that is that I can look smart and make suggestions for things I know work…
Tomorro I start work in the Emergency Department. I feel like the place is confusing and a little chaotic. I always feel that way though when I start at a new place. Hopefully by the end of this first week I will "get it"
TO add to my Stress, I have a friend coming on Saturday from South Africa for an entire month. I imitially thought he would spend about a week with me, a week with his friends in Tampa and a week with his friends in Miami, and then come back to Orlando for a conference. Well. It seems that he really is planning on spending a lot of time here. Even though I repeatedly explained that I was working and that my work schedule was inflexible, I don;t think he got it until I sent him the schedule. He doesn't seem to have enough cash to rent a car, which would make me feel much better. RIght now I feel like an unpaid driver. I want to be a good hostess, but right now I think I am finding it a bit hard. I don't know him that well, and so I feel a wee bit used and frustrated. still, hopefully when he arrives we can make a plan for some fun for both of us….
I feel right now that so much of my time is being spent preparing for guests or work that I have little time to myself.
I will eventually get the photos up. some were really nice….
I just want to get some rest people Please!
