PCT...Oh You Know Me...

I GOT A JOB.... I GOT A JOB....I GOT A JOB!!!

Sorry for the all caps, exclamation point screaming, but I am so damn excited I got a job...PCT Med/Surg at a local hospital!! I has not even been a year since I made the decision to begin this new journey in my life and I feel like I am firmly on the way.  I know it is the bottom rung of the nursing totem pole, but I am proud of myself.   So, I begin training in a week, and until then I will be spending my days doing pre-employment paperwork and vaccinations, trying to understand benefit packages and neurotically trying to find childcare for my boys.  I am not sure of my set schedule yet, so I am not sure what days I will need someone to wrangle the beasts, I am trying not to panic about it...easier said than done...deep breath...

It is getting pretty chilly here in suburban Chicago...fall has decided to cancel its appearance this year, opening an invitation for winter to rear its frigid face early...we even had frost and snow this week!! I am not ready to dig out my heavy winter coat yet, so some incarnation of the cammo jacket, puffer vest or long sweater will be my layer topper of choice...
