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.
