My busy life!

After 18 months of being home full time with my kids it is time to go back to work! I would LOVE to be able to be at home with my kids full time, but a some not so smart financial choices means that the sooner I go back to work, the sooner we can be debt free. Won't that be wonderful!
The great thing is the job that I got. I could have just gone back to ICU in Lethbridge picking up casual shifts, but that means 12 hour shifts plus driving at least 30 minutes there and back. I didn't really want to work "the floor", I wanted to work in emerg here in Taber. One day I was just checking the posted positions and there was one posted for 8-8hour shifts in a month in active care (that's where the patient is when they are admitted to the hospital). I liked the idea of 8 hour shifts (I can still come home after a shift and spend time with the kids, or leave after they're in bed), and 8 a month is perfect for me. I applied and got the job. I started last week and it has been really good so far. My favorite part is that I get to do some maternity as well. I've never worked with mom's and babies, but I got to help with a delivery this weekend and I loved it! I can't wait for more.
Here's a few pics of my girls...Kayla LOVES having her picture taken!
