I got a job!


I'm going to be working as the Medical Records/Database Specialist at Frances Nelson Health Center. It sounds very similar to the work I did for the Madison Public Health Department, but it pays less (Civil Service vs Federally funded). Luckily, the cost of living in Chambana is less than Madison's (albeit, not by much). Still, it'll be nice to be doing socially-responsible work again.

And let's hear it for benefits! I get health care coverage again (after a year of not having any). Yay!

Whoo hoo!

Heh. I need to buy new pants because mine are all too large now! Much better than the other way 'round.

Of course, now I need to buy more pants. Sigh.

Missing: sleep

Sleep has been escaping me recently. I maybe got three hours last night, which, since I usually get nine, is too little.

So, I just made coffee. With artificial sweetener (Splenda, in case you were wondering). And then I went to check email while the coffee brewed. Then, I came back, and added more sweetner. Can you guess how far across the room I spat the coffee? One large mug of coffee + 6 packets of Splenda=ppptttooooiiieee!!!!!

Need more sleep. I can't even make coffee correctly this morning. And I'm off in half an hour to grade 5th-9th graders on their reading ability. This does not bode well.
