My boss called this morning and said that while some parts of the hospital will be closing, our program will not. And our medical director, an adolescent medicine specialist, is safe as well.

Thank god.

I was really scared. Trying to be brave but thinking up a million obstacles to every job possibility I could think of (and apply for -- I had already spoken to a recruiter and posted my resume on Monster in the one day where there was uncertainty).

If I can just stay here long enough to get Calliope enrolled... I hope it's a great deal longer, but having her safely at this amazing, incredibly popular (admission by lottery) school will be such a relief.

Thank you for all the warm, supportive comments. They really made my anxiety-addled self feel better.


  1. Oh I'm do glad that it worked out for you. I can only imagine the anxiety associated with making such a big change.

  2. So so glad for you! What a relief!

  3. What a relief! I'm glad you didn't have to wait too long for the good news.

  4. YAY!
    I must add that I am SO envious of your summers off!

  5. Oh YAY! So glad it worked out and your job isn't in jeopardy. And like Claire, I'm SO envious of your having summers off! And school vacations, too. That would be nice once Jordyn's in school... Glad you can relax now. :)

  6. I read your blog and love it. I have nominated you for an award.
