Life changing couple of months

Sunday, November 04, 2007

Since Pam's heart attack I have decided that I can't possibly be a nurse for the rest of my working life. Especially not in the ICU. The hospital that I work at has a nationally recognized clinical pastoral program.....where people go to become chaplains. I am going to spend the next year getting ready fiancially to stop working as much and start the program. The funny thing is, the course is 1400 hours but the tuition is only about one dollar an hour when it comes right down to it. for a 1400 hour program many chaplains can actually make about 50 k per year when they get out. (I make signif. more than that now so it would be a pay cut but that is not bad for such a short education). I have let food get to me in the interim since the Hear attack. Not in a huge binge cycle way but I think I have gained 5 pounds. I am afraid to weigh but I have started tracking my nutrition again. I'll bite the bullet and weigh tomorrow. went for a hike with Pam and the dogs today so I got the excercise in so I'm headed to the right place anyway. Jus letting you all know. I'm back. Look out.

    Life's full of changes, some we plan and some just happen. But both make us stronger and both help pave the way through life. I hope you enjoy whichever path you chose to take. And it's great to have you back!
