After a long and tense waiting period, I received some very good news yesterday afternoon. I got THE job! It will be a few more weeks before I actually start working but the job is mine. This is such incredible news. This position is a major step up for me from what I was doing before. Although it is in the same career field, I will be moving up.
As I learn more about it and things become more solidified I will share more about the actual position.
My mind is racing with all of this LOL
I have lots of reading and research to do. I will be transitioning from police/public safety to the medical world. The principles and concepts are the same but the nuances are different. Planning for a crisis in medical facilities is new for me but I can learn about the areas that are specific to the medical world. In fact, I have already begun reading and researching. I have downloaded a huge binder full of material to read and review. I love learning new things. The safety net here for me is what I mentioned a few words ago… the job is basically the same, the foundation and techniques are the same. Another really cool aspect of this job is, not only will I be coordinating & planning for the medical facilities, but I will also be working closely with the city, county, and other surrounding agencies. It’s all very exciting for me. Time to get the dust off my brain!
So there you have it… the big news. And pretty much the only news LOL
Yesterday, I purchased a few knitting frames so I can make hats, scarves, booties, and other things. My daughter and her sister have been doing these things for a while. They, along with some others, made a butt load of beanies and donated them to a children’s cancer organization. I’m not thinking so philanthropically here. I’m thinking more about earning a bit of pocket change. The things I make can be added to my Etsy shop… and I bought some yarn in the school colors in the hopes of selling some school spirit swag.
That’s all I have for now… my mind is swirling and twirling. I’m outta here… I’ve got lots of reading & learning to do!
