A lot has happened in my life since I have last visited.
I have retired from nursing and persued self employment. I now own and operate a ATV (all terrain vehicle) rental and tour business. It's good to get out in the back-country a lot and I am having fun with my new career.
I'm not missing nursing much. I do miss parts of it but mostly I was feeling the pressure to meet the paperwork demands and wasn't seeing patients like I used to. If I spent more pt. time then I was neglecting all the other stuff admin needed. More pts getting sue-happy and I could go on and on.
I took a long bike trip this Spring from my home here in New Mexico through Tx to New Orleans. Slipped down to Biloxi Miss. and then back home through Arkansas. This was a week after my retirement and I needed it BAD. I had worked extra shifts all winter to get a nest egg up and was TIRED.
My 20 year old daughter dropped out of college and moved back in. I started charging her rent and she moved out of the house. Ahh, to be 20 and know it all.
I still have the 2 boys (14 and 16) here and they are doing well.
thinking about home schooling them this fall and have been educating myself about how to do that.
Anyway, I was thinking about my allnurses family and how I have been neglecting you so I thought I'd post an update.
Love and Peace,
