Now that we’ve come to the decision of moving (which took nearly 3 months to do), it’s time to iron out the details. Moving trucks, apartments, new job, new school, new gym, good neighborhoods, commutes, distance from airports, etc…. It’s a pretty daunting task to come up with a new life when you’ve never really visited the area. Next weekend, Taylor and I are planning to fly down to ATL and drive around and get to know the city, check out some apartments, do some touristy things that we won’t have time for once I’m working. It’s the weekend of our anniversary, and it would be nice to do it without Rosie (so much harder to non-rev with a kid), but finding someone to watch her for the weekend would probably be harder than bringing her along. Taylor and I get so little alone time these days, and it’s only going to get worse till we move.
I dusted off my resume, and added in the details of my current job. Even though I’ve only been in my position 7 months, I’ve acquired some good new skills (OR scheduling, cost accounting, charge entry, physician recruitment and relocation, and the lingo/procedures specific to thoracic surgery) and fine-tuned some others (transcription, purchase requisitions, procurement, more complex call schedules, etc.) I’ve been my department’s Joint Commission Accreditation and safety specialist, and know all the ins and outs of NPSG’s and SCIP and all the other acronyms.
It’s a tedious process, especially to focus on finding a new job in a new city, all while being exhausted from a hard day at work.
