Life has had a lot of moving parts for me lately. Most likely too many, because for another week I feel short here on the ol blog.
Which is a bummer, because when life gets insane, it usually makes for some great blog posts. If only I had someone to get the thoughts out of my head and write on my blog for me. And also…if that person could come to work with me an do my documentation, that would be great. Charting. The bane of the existence for any health care provider. #truth
Anyways…so many things going on that I just could not get myself to my computer. I went days without opening my computer, let alone write a blog post. It’s tough to write when you feel like you are constantly running on E.
Now that spring is here, the weather in Seattle is warming up quite nicely. I feel like I am getting that second wave of energy that I have been missing in the last month since I took my board exam and been living through our remodel.
There is so much to be done with our house. I know we have “tons of time” to get to everything. But somethings are just driving us nuts. So we want to tackle them ASAP. One of those things, getting proper window coverings for our living room and bedrooms. Which means, we should probably paint first.
So painting we are doing. Yippee. Except not.
Between the painting and the full time working, AV and I are also adjusting to new jobs. Which is really exciting. We are also having our housewarming party in a few weeks, so we are in a bit of a crunch to get to a point with the painting where we can put all our painting stuff away.
I do have some posts already in the works about career advancement. I have touched on subjects before of asking for raises and navigating career growth, but I have some awesome stories about how I recently negotiated a raise. Because duh, it’s me.... OF COURSE I asked for a raise. I realized there is one big thing that AV and I have done for years that has helped us in negotiating salary and in turn almost double our take home between the two of us in two years. So stay tuned for that tip coming to the blog soon.
So until then, I will leave you with this. An update on our bathroom remodel with a quick iphone photo. I promise it’s not as dark in there as the photo suggests. Real photos coming soon!
