It's been a while since I last wrote.

A lot has happened.

I'm walking, well limping mostly. My career as a nurse has been affected, since I can't sustain long periods or distances on Mr. Righty. Currently, I'm working PRN in Quality Improvement/Risk Management, which is a RN position. I've applied for a few other positions, some in nursing, some not. I interviewed last week for a position that'll take me out of nursing, but will still have me working with patients. More on that later.


I didn't get the position I interviewed for.  I am still working PRN in QIRM, so I get a few hours in here and there. Just today I got nearly 6 in. It's better than nothing. 

So much else has gone on. 

As I was walking thru Walmart today I noticed it felt like I was walking with a normal gait. I wasn't limping. There are times limping just happens, but then there are other times it's like nothing ever happened. 

My biggest frustration is the weight I've put on. I think it's time to kick things up a notch and push myself to be more consistent with the treadmill and walking the loop our street makes. It's exactly 1 mile. Getting up the driveway afterward can be daunting, but I am able to conquer it. My first goal is to walk the loop 2-3 times a week and walk the treadmill as much. To supplement I should be walking while AW is in his GED prep class. 

The building where it's held is on the campus of the high school and middle school and it can be walked around much like a track or a loop. I'm not sure on the distance, but it has to be better than just sitting on my ass reading the whole time. 

AW, after struggling his whole middle and high school years away decided to go the GED route. This decision also comes along with his becoming a father.
