It Never Hurts to Ask

Posted in Journal tagged , at 6:32 pm by Jenn


A few weeks ago when I learned that Max the dog would not be able to travel with me to Chile this summer I started asking around to see if there were any part time jobs in the area.

Lo and behold, there was a part time position open with DaVita (my old company) less than an hour away from my parents house, part time through October!  What a find.  I contacted the Regional Point RD and it seems like a perfect fit.

I’ve applied for my MD license (RD’s need to be licensed to practice in most states) and now I just have to wait to see when I start.  YAY me, and YAY Max!  Now I can justify staying in the states a while longer (earning good money) and Max won’t have to fly all by himself to Chile in the fall as cargo – costing me money – he can fly as excess baggage.  It will also give me peace of mind knowing that I didn’t just drop my dog on my parents door step for 4 months!

The downside to this is of course that Scott and I will be apart AGAIN, but we’ve had lots of practice in that area so it kind of seems normal.

    I’m glad you and Max will be traveling together. I was worried that he would be going such a long way by himself. And congrats on your job!!! Sounds great!

    I’m just now catching up on my blog reading …. You are SUCH A GOOD MOMMY! I’m so happy for Max that you made this choice.
