Back to Work

The last few months I've been looking for a part time job.  With the way the economy has been Marsh and I have just been feeling like we really need to build our savings, food storage, and pay off our student loans as soon as we can. I started looking in December and have applied countless places. I've had a few interviews and finally got a offered a job as a Health Unit Coordinator in the ER at the LDS hospital in Salt Lake. Luckily it's going to work out perfectly as it's only 2 nights a week and I'll be off by 4 am. Enough time to get home and get 2 hours of sleep before the boys wake up.  Plus it means no daycare since Marsh will be home with the boys.  That was definitely an issue for me.  I wasn't willing to give up my days with my boys.  It will be about a 45 minute commute, but the pay is good enough that it's worth it. I started the hospital orientation today and start my actual job orientation on Friday night. I'm excited but a little apprehensive. Coming from working in the Mom Baby Unit in Rexburg to an ER in Salt Lake will be a little bit of a change....ok maybe a lot.  Bring it on.

I have missed you blogging & check regularly. What nights will you be working? Friday night sounds good b/c then Marsh could get up with the boys on Saturday mornings while you still sleep!
Welcome to the world of commuting! At least you are doing it during off hours so there won't be much traffic at 4 a.m. :)

Good luck! I hope everything works out. That's great that Marshall can watch the kids, but that stinks you'll get such little sleep on those nights!

You'll do great! It sounds like a fun job. I hear they have quite the crazies walk in through those ER doors. Have fun! Miss you.
