<p>I have a new job and I'm so happy and excited and at the same time trying not to FREAK OUT.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm excited about the job.  It's at a Wound Center.  Mon-Fri 8-4:30 hours.  These sort jobs are hard to find in nursing.  And the work itself is going to be interesting.  (Yes, I like wounds and gore.)   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have NEVER worked a traditional 40 hr work week with 3 kids.  Let alone solo with 3 kids.  For the last 15 months I have worked 24 hours a week, 12 hour shifts on Sat/Sun.  I'm use to being with the kids a lot.  Haven't used a babysitter in years.  So this is going to be a huge change for all of us.  But I am excited about having weekend time with them!  And I've missed so many ballgames and fun stuff over the last year.   My two younger kids have been spending every weekend with their dad and they are excited to stay home EOW.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This will be a good thing for me and the kids once we adjust.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now I just need to find childcare!</p>

<p>My aunt is a nurse and she was never home in the evenings with my cousin so I can see how that is a pretty damn choice job you got there ;)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats. :)</p>

<p>Wonderful!! Congratulations! I've been to a wound care clinic before and it was soooo interesting! I was pregnant and they used some strange things on me. :)</p>

<p>That is awesome!  If you can pay full price for childcare, give another mom a chance...look for a single mom, or post a flyer at a La Leche League meeting...pay it forward is I guess what I'm saying.</p>

<p>I would gladly give another mom a chance at childcare---it's just a matter of finding one!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also have my third showing on my house on Monday.  After months of being entirely stuck, it's like my entire life is changing at once.  Stressful, but exciting.</p>
