Well right now I'm sitting in my cousins family room in San Diego, CA contemplating the biggest move in my life since I came to this country at the age of 12, 20 years ago to the date on 11/14/1986.
I have been afforded a golden opportunity to be able to move to Southern California. I had a couple of job interviews today and if my background check comes back ok, I will be the newest PICU RN at Rady's Children Hospital in San Diego, CA starting in January 8, 2007.
It's a big step for me both personally and professionally.
Chicago has been my home ofr 20 years and although I've had my share of bitching and moaning about the weather and all, Chicago is a beautiful city with a unique personality all it's own. Both mine and Shane's immediate family call Chicago home and so we will be leaving them behind with our move.
And after practicing as an R.N. in adult care for the past 8 years of my career, I find myself at the edge of a great adventure, not only will I be changing specialties but I will be handling a completely different patient population, I will now be taking care of children. It's both nerve wracking and exhilirating at the same time.
And then there's our friends here at CLSB. All the wonderful and unique individuals Shane and I have met the last 3 years. All the great people who have helped us out, hung out with us, come to our home for a get together or 2, you have each been an integral part of our live and we will truly miss you.
We're officially leaving for San Diego on December 30, 2006.
Also if anyone can help us out with moving our stuff into storage on Saturday, December 2, 2006 ar 9am let us know and we would really appreciate it.
