Two weeks ago yesterday I was told that I was going to act as AOIC (Assistant Officer in Charge) of my section and got a couple of hours of training the next day... only to find myself on Monday actually as the OIC (Officer in Charge) for the full 2 weeks while my OIC was gone.
It was a huge challenge to step up so suddenly to actually run Nurse Case Management. But for a few small glitches, I think I did pretty well. It was certainly a challenging couple of weeks. I was very nervous. But I also welcomed the challenges at one level. I think I did pretty good, and I learned some things too, both about what it is to be in charge and that I have a capacity to be quite flexible and work under considerable pressure.
This week I have also made great strides in getting back on track with my exercise and eating. I am really happy about that, because once I have success, it is easier to keep that momentum going.
So far this week I am 5 for 6 in both eating and exercise. I plan to make that 6 for 7 tomorrow!!
And it was kind of cool to watch Nick Wallenda walk the tightrope across Niagra Falls.
