Every since I found flickr I have enjoyed Carolyn in Oregon's photo's of the PNW and this one is no exception. This is exactly what it looks like and what I so a couple of months again on my first night back in the PNW my new home.
It is such an amazing place.
I haven't taken many pictures since moving here because my life has been so topsy turvy with starting a new job, buying a house and my husband still living 2800 miles away but things are beginning to settle down.
Through all the upheaval of my life of late I know that moving here was the right move. I have lived here alone 2800 miles away from everyone I know for two months and I have never been afraid and still enjoyed the beauty of my surroundings each day that I get up and get in the car.
I also really like my job as I get to actually take care of patients and have time to take a bathroom break. There have been many days as any nurse will tell you at my former job where I never had time to go to the bathroom or eat in a 12 hour shift and only sit down for all that time for maybe 30 minutes in the whole shirt.
On saturday when I worked I had a patient who has been in the hosp for 7 weeks tell me . I will miss you when you are off. It meant the world to me . Sometimes just someone who notices you do a good job makes the long hours and the hard physical and mental work of being a nurse worth it.
I have toyed with the idea of not continuing to blog in these months of late due to all the changes in my life but I am still going to for this reason. I love to meet other people from other parts fo the world and country who I enjoy sharing with and reading about their life . I like the connections you make this media.
