Thanks for all the well wishes...the last couple of days have been great! I've been busy preparing for our upcoming roadtrip, but it's been much more relaxed without having to fit w+rk in!

Very nice. Is there still a "Class of 2014" roster around here somewhere?

I'm pretty sure you'll find plenty of things to do all day! When life settles down a little, I'd appreciate a few bullet points (or paragraphs!) of "lessons learned" about your transition. I could turn it into a guest post on the blog or add it to the next edition of the book.

BTW I still get annoyed when rush hour sneaks up on my afternoon plans...

Most certainly!

We made it back from our road trip to visit family and let me tell you...It's GREAT to know that I can sleep in late tomorrow and not worry about going to w#rk!!! I think I'm going to sleep very well tonight!

Well, I am getting ready to start my 3rd week of ER and let me tell you...it's been GREAT!!! As expected, Thanksgiving was a busy week but since then things have slowed down quite considerably. I am really surprised at how fast time goes by though...even faster than the weekends did when I was still w*rking...and that's odd to me. I certainly hope this doesn't continue but if it does, I am VERY glad I decided to do this so young!


This week should be pretty slow and that's the way I like it. I will head to the grocery store here shortly after they have fully restocked the shelves after the weekend. I fully expect to see about 4 people while I am there. Of course, I will be back home long before the schools start letting out!


Anyway, thought I'd drop a little update in here, which I think I will do time to time.
