Don't remember...

...if I posted about the fact that I got a job offer that I'm going to take.

I'll be with a local hospice, working midnights at their on-site facility (not in people's homes). They're a very, very good hospice. Having them be my first hospice job, learning my standard of care from them, is something I'm very pleased about.

The only other hospice I've seen that impressed me to the same level is just west of Flint. But that commute would be quite a killer, so better these folks, regardless.

The midnight part is not my absolute first choice, but my body does midnights just fine; it just interferes a smidge with my social world. But nowhere near enough to be a deal-breaker.

I've gone from my initial insane, ear-splitting levels of squee to a steady, happy anticipation. I'm a little nervous, since I've not had regular work in a year, and my mind and body may be out of practice. But I *like* working, so I suspect there's going to be as much relief as start-up stress.
