Macro Monday


Here is a closer look at those keys that I loved so much.
The cumbersome old Gibons key always seemed like an antique, I always wondered how old that key was. The buildings and rooms that it gave passage to were almost 95 years old. I wonder if the key was near that age? It sure looked like it. Then there was the simple, ordinary, smaller key. These two keys could get you access to almost every door and cupboard in the place. No wonder staff would have near heart-attacks when they misplaced their keys... imagine those in the wrong hands!

I no longer have those keys. Recently though, it is as though I hold the key to all sorts of opportunities. As I mentioned in my last post, I got a new job in correct*ions. Today I went for my first shift. I started at 4:30 am. The med nurse has to be in that early because it takes almost two hours to prepare the meds for almost 80+ people. It was very busy, to the point of me wondering 'Will two weeks orientation be enough?"!!!! I know I will catch on to the routine, but its alot to soak in. I finished at 11.30. I like those hours. Getting up a couple hours earlier than usual didnt feel too hard, though I am feeling tired now! Being done before lunch time feels nice though, leaving all afternoon for my own time!

When I got home, I got a call from the hospital that I had an interview at a couple weeks ago. They have set up an orientation for begining of May. So now I have two casual jobs. I will work them both part time. Maybe I will like them both and keep them, or perhaps if one is more to my liking I may choose to commit full time to that one. Right now, I just want to play the field and see where I feel right.
It is as though the I hold the world in the palm of my hand. I just have to be patient and not grab too much of it at once.
I feel so blessed to have been given these opportunities. I only pray that I can do justice to both positions. In palm reading... is there a luck line? If there is, mine must be very long and strong.

Keith left for Edmonton this morning, he should be there by now. Soon Kayla will be home from the hospital. I hope she feels well enough to enjoy her visit with him. She has been so bored stuck at home, and was so excited that he was coming to see her. I am happy for her, I know he will make his time there as useful as possible. I already miss him though. I guess I will let the dog stretch out and have daddy's side of the bed tonight! After all, I wouldn't be able to sleep if I didn't have a warm body in there with me.

You are in an enviable position with two jobs you sound like you like to choose from. You will get used to those hours. I worked 5am to 1pm for years and got to where I liked it, especially easy commutes & being home all afternoon. I sometimes felt like Cinderella, having to go to bed earlier than I really liked but that wasn't much of a problem.

I know you will be placed where you are to be when the time is right Susan, For now enjoy what has come your way, you seem to be doing just that. I know you will very much like these hours once the adjustment to the hours has been made for it will mean more quality family time.

Take care and have a great week.

Wow, such opportunities. Good for you!!

Isn't it amazing how sometimes the world just opens up for us?

Stopping by to catch up - two new jobs. WOW congrats on both. I think it would be hard to work at a prison though.

I would like just ONE.

Glad you have the choices, nice. I like your pictures!

Kayla is still on our prayer list. Seems windows always open when doors close, whether a job, an opportunity, a romance...life is a series of checks and balances and I'm discovering every day how wonderful it is.

It must be so exciting to have new choices and things to do. Good for you for taking the bull by the horns.

I hope you find a great fit at both jobs and enjoy your days.

Boy, that spammer seems to have taken a real liking to your blog. I have been getting him/her too & usually delete them but it is easy to see why many go to that graphic word entry system Blogger offers. I guess it keeps those automated things away. Too bad there are some who have to mess up the simplicity of a good thing like the Web.
