Fantastic News!

Prayers have been answered!

Tonight I can rest well! This weekend I can finally exhale. My "laughter" will no longer be forced, and my "smiles" won't be faked.

I got a call today from my PRN job, and they want to bring me on full time until my hospital decides what they're going to do. They said they want to bring me on full-time for good...but understand my situation with the contract.


How is this even possible?! It's like, too good to be true. I'm seriously pinching myself here.

And even better?!?!....

My position is 6am-2:30 pm M-F.

WHAT?!?!?!!!! This kind of schedule does NOT exist in healthcare, my friends.

I got offered a job on Wednesday that was going to be 16 hr night shifts on the weekends plus 1 hr night shift during the week. And I was going to accept that crappy schedule....because I want to be a nurse, already!

But starting Monday morning it's real!!!

(Meanwhile..I'm still waiting for my hospital to snap-to-it and set up an interview so we can get that show on the road). But this is a HUGE peace of mind!

I seriously have NOT been myself since....graduation?! I've been worried, stressed out, scared, and melancholy. It's probably good Ryan has been traveling so much -- b/c my attitude has been almost "life-sucking".

I know this isn't that big of a deal. It's just a full time job. But this has been a battle!! So I'm counting my blessings right now!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm waiting for Ryan to fly in tonight at 10 pm and then I'm ready to kick off a fun weekend!

It IS a big deal!! You are building a home after all!! So I know it's a huge relief to have a job. And it's really cool that they understand that you will work for Oro Valley when they get their rears in gear and offer you a job!

See, I knew it would all work out! I know it's hard to believe that when you are in the middle of a crisis like this, but I KNEW all along that you'd find something. ;) Congrats!!
