I'm working at an extremely busy ob/gyn office in Dallas that houses five doctors, each with two nurses. We also do the in house mammograms, blood work and sonograms. I answer the phones with another woman (my angel) for all of the above. We answer the phones, make all appointments and keep the doctor's calendars.
It's a constantly busy place. There are probably 30 women in this group of people I work with, only the doctors are men. I've never known women to get along so well. These people seem to honestly like each other. I've not heard any bad words said to or about anyone. I've been here for eight work days and I'm still pretty shocked about it. When I interviewed for the job, I interviewed with the office manager (a man), a woman who has been here for 23 years and the managing doctor who founded the firm. The woman who interviewed me also helped train me and she has brought me in seven sets of scrubs. SEVEN. All the women wear them here, but it's an option. I wanted to go shopping for some and she told me she had some that didn't fit her anymore and she'd bring them in to me. Blessings! Yay me. :)
My favorite thing about the job is the regular hours. I leave for work at 7:30 and I'm home by 6:00. Greatness! I've came home a couple of times to Charlie making dinner for me. I know I've never told y'all this before, but I simply adore my kids. Speaking of kids, I made our Christmas cards on-line this year and love how they turned out. Got them yesterday in the mail, and other than my picture on them, they're great. I've recently lost a lot of weight (40 pounds) and wish I'd had a more recent picture on them, but...I'm so camera shy that regardless, I just won't get in front of one. Honestly, when you look at my kid's baby albums it looks like they were raised by Mark alone, there isn't any evidence of me. Katy always says it's like I'm in the witness protection plan. ;)
Casey will be home for a month at Christmas. How cool is that?!? Well, for me anyway. I'm sure he'll be ready to go back after a few days of Mom... I miss him so much. It's just the coolest thing watching he and Charlie hang together, though. Love it. You know what? I've raised some great kids.
Other things in my life, well...leaving it all up to God. He's in control and I can get through anything. So, all praise here. Seriously, I've got the best job, I like the people I work with and I got enough clothes to go through a week and a half, I've got my kids and they're kids to be proud of. Add in the friends I have, our health and all of our every day joys...I'm blessed.
Sorry I've been gone so long. When I get home, I'm just loving spending time with Charlie and doing things around my home. L.O.V.I.N.G. it!!
I'll be around to check on y'all soon. Big hugs to every single one of you.
