One week until assignment completion.

One week to go.  I’m working a solid week next week and we are done as of Friday… won’t be able to go until Saturday.  Saturday morning I will go get the trailer from UHaul. 

This past week Francisco and I said our thank you to the department as they have showed us extreme generosity while I have worked with them over the years.  When my grandfather passed they understood and allowed me time out despite the contract.  When our baby girl came early I jetted off for two months despite many problems in Mexico and finally on return they had thrown us an amazing baby shower.  We wanted to say Thank you for all they have done.  We brought in 80 Enchiladas, veggie, bean, and beefy.  Just a huge display of Tex-Mex gluttony that CRNAs, pre-op nurses, OR Nurses and techs all enjoyed.   

Francisco and I have been packing and learning just how much we don’t need with us in Philadelphia.  We will have to get a thing or two but after this experience …. I’m betting it won’t be nearly as much J. 

Francisco is still practicing his Macarons and someday he hopes to sell them. One of these days I’ll start Francisco a website for his recipes, food pictures, and who knows J.  He wants to do either a food truck, stand, catering, or ?? restaurant at some point.

I have finally hired an assistant (1099) to help out in taking care of some of my paperwork, accounting, licenses, research and all those things I remember in the OR and can’t actually get done when working 60 hours a week.

This coming month we will drive to KS.  Do a whole bunch of rental house stuff. Legal paperwork mumbo jumbo.  Go see Mt Rushmore in a rush.  Visit with Grandparents of Elizabeth and then Fly back to Massachusetts pack and head to Philly.  July 1 all things change again J.  We’ll keep you up to date!
