Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! I've placed 2nd a couple times, but this was my first 1st, so I am very excited about it.
Back sitting at home on call. It's almost 3am, and no call yet, so I'm probably going to lose another 12 hours of work. And then when I'm off I'll be getting calls begging me to work extra.
I guess it's a kind of blessing; now just one 12-hour shift really wears me out. I'm considering looking for a day job, but even that's scary because it would mean starting something new for possibly lower pay, and what about insurance and all that? Plus I really love what I do. But then again, I'm killing myself with these hours.
I guess I just need to pray for wisdom.
Hope those who have been sick are feeling better, and the rest are having a good week. <3
