5 weeks left…

So I have 5 more weeks here in NY, then we go for the big move to MI.

Work goodbye party = Dec 3

My last day of work = Dec 15

My last Lord’s Day in NY = Dec 16

My last final (Byzantine Empire) = Dec 17

We pack up the U-Haul = Dec 18

We recently went to see the Museum one last time… they have an interesting 9/11 exhibit.

I recently put my resume up and got approx 40 emails and 20 phone calls within 3 days! I guess I didn’t get how much nurses were in demand until then. Of course they are calling from all over the US, but I’m stuck to MI. I guess I can post my resume below if anyone wants to read it.

I don’t know if I will have time to post before I go. Maybe I could post on the last events here in Albany, but don’t hate me if I don’t meet quota.
