The Other Side Of The Mountain
Around here they have elevation issues - how much snow you get depends on what side of the mountain you live on. In Terra Alta they can have a foot of snow and by the time you hit Masontown about 20 miles away, it's springtime. I guess it's sort of like the lake effect upstate. My side of the mountain has become a giant mudhole, my lawn squishes in a most gross (and funny) way when I got trolloping around with the dogs. It's supposed to warm up for a few days, then get cold then back to warm. The other nurse is done on Friday but we have two part timers starting today - I'm doing the orientation class!! which I'm a little nervous about. The boss was supposed to be doing it with me watching but she's got to go to the other office today so I will be winging it. I finally got everything caught up yesterday and am now auditing and organizing the charts. I'm not on call this weekend and I'm hoping it warms up so I can go hiking up on Cooper's rock with Jackson. Miss Thing of course will have to stay home despite the fact that would make the hike more exciting. At some time this spring I want to go to the Catherdral Forest out in Aurora which is an entire forest of hemlocks but that would be a full day trip as it's 60 miles away. I'm having a little bit of a problem adjusting to this full time thing - realistically it's only 2 half days more a week but things like getting my oil changed, etc all have to wait until the weekend now and when the weekend comes around I don't feel like doing anything like that. I guess I'll get used to it.
