This just in:
*I HAVE A NEW JOB*
Okay, you can go back to what you were doing.
I just wanted to pop in for a second and announce the end of my Emergency Room career, if it ever were one. It's been real and it's been fun but it ain't been real fun, if you know what I mean. I got the job offer actually last week but since I was traveling for Spring Break this is the first chance I have had to blog about it.
I didn't think I was getting the job at all to begin with because the office staff told me that the corporate manager who does the hiring did not take to me very well...why does that always happen to me? Apparently, she thought that my family might just be more of a priority than my career. What am I supposed to say to that?? Ummm....yeah, it is. Anyway, I don't really care that the rumor is the only reason I got it is because the first person it was offered to declined the job due to a pay increase she was offered at her current job. It worked out well for me so who cares? I'm ok being second string...lots of good people were not the first person picked. The point is that I got the job.
No nights, no weekends, no holidays, an hour for lunch...speaking of lunch - Drug rep lunches are awesome! It's not all roses and wine however. Now that I have an 8-5 job I have to figure out how to get my children home from the private school that does not have a bus service. I could not dare ask if I could have 30 min to go get them at 3pm because Ms. Witchy Manager already thinks that my family is too high of a priority. So, I put the word out amongst friends that we needed help. Now, I just have to wait and see what kind of mommy-swap-carpooling we can dig up!
I am almost giddy at the thought of being able to have dinner with my children every night, not to mention the extra day off every week since it's a 3-day a week job. I refuse to get my hopes up too high. I work 4 days this week in the ER, then it's off to the land of Part-Time. Ya'll wish me luck...and thanks for the prayers. It worked ;)
