Checking In

I know this blog of mine has been pretty dead recently, so I just wanted to "check in" and tell y'all I'll be back soon with more regular posts.

I've had a lot on my plate recently and just haven't felt like blogging. Well, I have a lot to talk about, and I feel like blogging, but just don't want to sit at my computer and type it out. It's weird.

So, I had some time today and wanted to do a quick up date of my life lately.

1. I got a new job! I'll go in to details more soon, but I am really excited about it and the new opportunity with a large hospital here in Houston's Med Center. My first day is May 6th!

2. I put in my 2 weeks notice at my current job. I decided to take a week off so my last day there is next Friday, the 29th. How my boss and everyone acted about it really made me realize that I am making the right decision.

3. I had a EGD and flexible sigmoidoscopy done on Thursday. I've had really bad stomach aches and heartburn the last few months so I finally went to a gastroenterologist and he ordered these tests. They gave me all my results when I was still kind of out of it, but John said he remembered something about a hiatal hernia. I have to call them Wednesday for all my biopsy results.

4. I've felt like crap ever since I had the procedure done. Being a nurse makes you so paranoid about every little thing that could go wrong so I've been freaking out the past few days.

5. John left today for a business trip to the UK and he'll be gone 8 days. :( I think this is the longest we've ever been away from each other except for the 2 weeks he left to go to the UK when we first started dating. It's one thing to be away from each other for 8 days, but when he's in a different country and we can't talk very much because of the time difference, it sucks even more :(  Luckily the kitties know exactly what I need!!

6. I just dropped John off at the airport 3 hours ago and I'm already lonely. I have some plans this week... shopping today, hanging out with Emily tomorrow, mani/pedi date on Wednesday and a few dinners here and there, but it's still weird going to bed without your husband. The girls miss their dad already too. Lucy has been sitting at the door crying ever since I got home.

7. John got a promotion this week at work and had to move to a new office. He's stressed because it's different and going to be a lot of work for him, but I know he will do great at it. He's with the same large oil and gas company and just keeps moving up. I am so proud of him and everything he does to provide for our family.

8. I'm still missing our wedding week like crazy. I can't believe it's already been 4 months since we were on the beach in Mexico with all of our family and friends. Does this wedding depression ever go away?? haha

9. We booked our hotel and flight for the wedding we have to go to in NYC in September. John's cousin is getting married in Manhattan and I'm really looking forward to it. Unfortunately though, there is something going on that weekend in NYC and hotel prices were ridiculously expensive. We ended up finding a mediocre hotel in Times Square, but spent what we would have on a 5 star. But, it will still be fun to be back in the city where we got engaged and see all of John's family again :)

I promise I'll be back soon with some regularly scheduled blogging and more info about my new job!
Happy Saturday!

Congrats on your new job Savanah! So happy for you. Being away from one another does stink but enjoy your time and get better as the reunion will be so sweet!

Heather said...

Congratulations on the new job!!! I'm sorry you're sad that your hubby is gone, but he'll be back before you know it :)

Amber said...

Congrats on the new job! I'm glad you got the EGD out of the way, but I hope the biopsy results come back OK!

Jodi said...

Congrats on your new job. I'm so happy for you. I know you weren't totally happy at your current job so this is such a great thing for you to be moving on. I can't wait to hear what you'll be doing next. I'm looking for a job too (I don't mention it on my blog b/c I don't know who reads). I am looking for something in a big Boston hospital - I need more excitment - the 'burbs are too boring for me. Haha!

Congrats to John too. Promotions are great!

Have a relaxing time while he is gone. Think of all the girl time you can have and all the relaxing and tv watching (your shows) you can do.

It sounds like the right move for you :)

Heidi said...

Congrats on the new job! Yay for all your hubby's hard work! I'm about be solo too...for quite a bit and I'm not ready. :(
Kitties really do know when we need some extra lovin! :)

Lindsay said...

Congrats on the new job! That is SO exciting!!

Cayla Hess said...

Congrats on the new job girl! And I totally hear ya on the co-worker thing! I left my previous job because of co-workers, and when I gave my notice and left, the way they acted was just disgusting and totally reaffirmed my decision. Sometimes when you're "not sure" it's the right decision, what is said when you leave makes all the difference! Good luck with your new venture!

Jenna said...

Can't wait to hear more about the new job!! Hopefully your hubby being gone goes by SUPER fast! :) Have a fab week girlfriend!!

Ashley Barnhill said...

Yayy for the new job! Still so excited for you!! And just think, you can do all the girly stuff you want while John's away! :)

Veronica Lee Burns said...

Goodness girl, exciting things and hard things! Keep your plans busy while he's out of town. I've only had to deal with overnight shifts so far but as long as I had things to do I was usually okay. :)

I miss our wedding too...I don't know when that feeling goes away!

jessica said...

I can't wait to hear about your new job!! Congrats!! I know that's something you've been wanting (and needing) for a while now. Also, keep us posted on those results. It's so nerve wracking having any issue! I was supposed to go to the UK last month for work and didn't need to after all. I actually was relieved because I was DREADING leaving Ronnie and the baby for 9 days! Yikes. Hopefully it flies by for you :)

Kenzie Smith said...

Yay, congratulations on the new job! How exciting! I bet you are looking forward to that week off as well :)
Glad that you went in to see what is wrong, hope you start feeling better soon.
Congrats to John on his promotion!!
