Employed

I got a new job! I will be working as a Care Partner in the peri-surgical unit (PSU) at the hospital in Richmond starting the day we get back from our visit home for the holidays. Essentially, I will be helping to get people ready for their surgeries and/or helping monitor them after surgery. I'm excited for this job because I'll be working with patients anywhere from 2 days to 110 years old - so it will be a good opportunity to get a better idea of the population I want to work with in the future.

On a similar note, Chris had his last day of work yesterday. We are both going to miss all his awesome co-workers here. They are wonderful and fun people. He is very excited for his new opportunity though - and he starts on Monday, so it will be a quick turn-around!

We are spending the weekend packing and just took a car load of stuff to donate over to Goodwill. There's nothing like moving to motivate you to pare down on your belongings :)
