It’s been a great start. Do you ever get to the point of I’m going to a new place and you are super excited until a little before you actually go?
After all the excitement dies, the nerves kick in. You wonder why are they having such difficulty? Why am i needed? What are the surrounding politics and issues? Then it’s a myriad of conjecture that has you just about to say “nope, I’m good to stay home.” Yes, after multiple years i continue to get those pre jitters. This time was more because it was very temporary and only a couple weeks work. I need the work but I could just ride the debt wave just a little. If you don’t know debt and your a Ramsey fan... i sooooo applaud you and I’m jealous.
Anyways, I’m here & so happy i didn’t just give in to staying home. I’m at a GI center with just myself and another CRNA and it’s nice. Just enough work to pay some bills. Yet, I get home in time to do things and relax. We even went to find a YMCA to join while we are around the country! (Did you know they have babysitters for two hours a day?!) yes, that last comment makes me sound ... older.
Today is another day that will be busy with deliveries and paperwork that is all being pushed to Francisco and my parents as I’ll be working! It’s awesome to be able to say that I’m sorry and have to work. It’s very true as i had more available weeks and they just couldn’t use me.
I’ve supplemented with work back in Massachusetts for two weeks! That’ll be somewhat more of a challenge but still fun to see people i worked with in the past.
I can’t wait to keep you updated on locum life. this weekend I start making my presentation for Costa Rica! What an adventure the next 6 months will be!
