We are now in the fifth week of this contract here, and it’s been quite a ride. Kendra doesn’t say much about here work, but I believe this hospital has been the busiest. Kendra got called to the office last week. They wanted to know if she would extend into December…everywhere she goes, they ask her to extend, with the exception of Florida. She hasn’t decided about what to do yet, but we’ll let you know when she does.
She’s also been busy with her side business…she is a LuLaRoe consultant. If you aren’t familiar, with LuLaRoe, it is a clothing company….dealing mainly in ladies clothing. The company is known mainly for its leggings, but there are also tops, skirts, and dresses. She does her business on line at LuLaRoe Boutique with Kendra, RN and she also has a van, jam packed full of product where she can go into houses and do “pop-up” in home sales. She does very well at it, and it relaxes her from the hectic ride of an ER nurse. Here’s a couple shots of her modeling some of her clothes, and a shot of her van. The van also doubles as our “daily driver”.
On to other things. Among the other duties Kendra has, taking care of me is top priority…and she does it well. She is constantly on me about taking my meds, asking me if I’m ok, etc. I could not have asked for anyone better to have been by my side during this whatever it is I have. I have an appointment with the rheumatologist in October, so maybe we can get some answers and a plan of action. So far, pain has been minimal, but I’m on 2400 mg of Ibuprofen a day, too….that should knock out just about any pain I have. If I can maintain my current level, I’ll be happy and we can continue on down the road to new adventures.
It is kind of nice being where we are. We are only 3 and a half hours from our home so on Kendra’s days off, we go home, even if it’s just for a couple of days. I have missed sitting out on my deck, sitting at my bar and looking out at the water, or walking out on the pier in the evenings or in the mornings, watching the sun rise. Kendra and I have often talked of what it would be like to settle down and live in the many places we have visited over the past two plus years…but we both agree that, no place compares to the Crystal Coast. I mean, we live where people come to vacation.
That’s about all the catching up I can do right now…I’m sure more will come later.
