We got an offer on the house. It's a fair offer so the time has come for us to make a decision about condo vs. house (by 6 PM today in fact). I'm having trouble with the choice and am very much on the fence. I really believe if I knew what I was going to be doing for a living, the choice would come easier. It's a terrible thing not to know your own mind.
I gave the decision-making power to John today. In 28 years of marriage, we've never done it that way but I seem paralyzed by indecision. It's an odd sensation. It's been almost 6 months (!) since the tornado and I don't think any more time or any more discussion will make a difference.
He'll be home in about an hour to deliver the verdict. I've got my Manhattan glass chillin'. I'll let you know!
Meanwhile, I applied for a faculty position at the Frontier Nursing University. This is a highly-regarded program that trains nurse-midwives and nurse practioners to work with the medically underserved.
|The nurses gave care to the inaccessible by making house calls on horseback.|
The program is large - they admit 600 students from around the world every year. The teaching would be done online with a requirement that I visit the campus in Hyden, KY several times a year.
I've been there before while researching an article in 1996 about the organization as a model of nurse-managed care. I loved it - the school, the school's mission, the clinics staffed by nurses, and the location itself. The small campus is nestled in the hollers of Kentucky - real "Coal Miner's Daughter" country.
It's another option I'm looking at and I'm trying not to get too excited but ..... I'm kinda excited!
