The Rest of MY Life


This is the day that I accomplish my goal.   As of today I’ve  worked 1003 hours.  I’m happy that I’ve done it that’s for sure.  However there is a tiny bit of a letdown.  What will I do next?  It’s sort of like all the anticipation before Christmas and then boom it’s over.  I know myself though and I will be happier and happier as time goes on. When I’m 80 years old and looking back at my life it’s one of those things that will make me feel good.  Or….when that check comes in the mail EACH MONTH for the REST of MY LIFE  I get to save it, spend it or give it away because I earned my PENSION.  It isn’t the size of the prize.  It’s the point.  I DID IT.  I WAS HERE.  I worked at this hospital.  I was part of a team.  I counted.

I did it my way… la la…..Jump_for_joy

A special thanks to all of my co-workers, the cast.  An amazing group of women + one man who work their butts off making me laugh, cry, whine, love, go insane and live life to the fullest.

TIDBIT  Maybe, just maybe, this one humble experience is something that I have in common with Florence Nightingale.  On second thought NOT!  I want to JUMP for JOY!!

About florencewannabe

I'm a registered nurse trying to work 1000 hours in 2014 to earn my pension. Currently, May 28,2014, I'm 455.5 hours into my goal. I have until Dec. 31, 2014 to get 544.5 hours of work. The catch is that I work per Diem and I don't have any guaranteed time.
