I am still here!

Wow!  It has been a long time!!!  As my husband reminded me tonight, the last time I blogged was Halloween!!!  SO MUCH has happened since then!!!  I will tell you as much as I can think of and leave out the stuff that isn't too important!! :)

Probably the biggest thing that has happened since I blogged last is that I changed jobs!  I put in my two week notice at Arlington Memorial Hospital and my last day there was Friday, November 16th.  I was there for almost 5 years and the decision to leave was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made.  I absolutely love that hospital and those 5 years, granted not without challenges, were some of the best years of my career.  I am now working at Baylor Surgical Hospital in Fort Worth.  It is United Surgical Partners hospital, mainly owned by physicians and a small portion owned by Baylor Healthcare System.  It is a small 24 inpatient bed surgical hospital that cranks out A TON of surgeries per day and stays plenty busy.  My start date there was December 4th and I have been a busy little bee there since. 

Several have asked if I like my new job.  Here is what I have to say.  I do like it.  I miss Arlington Memorial something terrible.  I have days where I just want to cry I miss it so bad.  I miss my friends, I miss the familiarity.  I miss knowing what I'm doing and people coming to me when they don't know the answers.  I miss being on top of my game and being organized and just....being comfortable.  I miss being in my element.  I feel SO COMPLETELY out of my element.  Am I happy?  I think so.  It is just such an emotional thing for me.  I don't do change well but this was a good move for me.  I need to grow both personally and professionally and I absolutely believe that this move will do that for me.  I don't like feeling like I am flying by the seat of my pants because most days I absolutely feel like that.  The people are different....not bad.....but different. So....I believe that God has me in this place at this time for a specific purpose.  I feel wanted and I am glad that people are excited that I am at Baylor Surgical.  I am excited about what I am doing and what I have the potential to do.  My heart is still sad.  My OCD is still having difficulty overcoming some of the logistics of it all.  But, all in all, it's good.  :)

Something else that has happened since my last post is that Rachel turned 6!!  I will do a separate post about her birthday festivities but my BABY is now 6 years old!!!!  How did that happen?! 

Sorry there are no pictures but while I am on vacation this next week I will try to do some regular posts with some pictures!! :)
