I have been working at said current hospital for four years, since getting out of nursing school. I've worked the evening shift, followed by the day shift. If you didn't know already I work as a nurse in the operating room. Although I don't want to be a nurse for the rest of my life, it's a really cool job and sometimes it's easy to forget that. I wish I could say I was leaving to do something design related but alas, I'll keep on dreaming!

Many people don't know about travel nursing. It's where a nurse works for many agencies and has jobs from all over the country to choose from. I can basically work anywhere, pick my own schedule to an extent, take little or no call, and make more money. Money is something we really need right now. We are struggling with debt and having a little leftover at the end of the month is not going to cut it anymore. We are very excited and motivated to move forward with our lives.
In the beginning I plan on working 3 twelves, not too far from home, and coming home for a four day weekend. Once we fix a few things we hope to sell the house and have Oscar and all our fur babies travel along with me.
What does that mean for this blog? I honestly don't know. I do know that I don't want to stop but may be forced to change my direction and focus. My heart will always be with design but I might just have to center on other subjects like a lifestyle blog. Who knows. And for once, I'm okay with the unknown. Don't get me wrong, I'm downright nervous but after much debate we're positive that this is the change in our life. This is the push in the right direction of a very different life we are craving.
As things change around here I hope that you can be understanding and flexible but I know I'll lose readers as time goes on and I hope to gain others. This blog will be less of a priority and traveling [whilst getting my life together] will take center stage. I can't wait to share things though and hope you don't mind :)
