So this past weekend was a wet and windy weekend. I made the mistake of 1) not closing up the companion way all the way and 2) leaving the computer cord on the table to get wet while I went away to work. So needless to say, the boat got wet and so did the computer cord. What am I trying to say? I haven't posted in a while because the computer has been out of commission due to wet and non functioning computer cord as evidenced by no blog posts. How do you like that fellow nurses? A nursing diagnosis for my computer. Stupid care plans. Ba!
The best news of all is my friend Carly brought me to this great big Goodwill thrift store. It even had carts and a dressing room you could fit the whole cart into! I found a nice coat/fleece, new pair of winter hiking boats which I needed to find sooner or later, and a few t-shirts and pants. That was the highlight of the week!! Heaven...
Any way, here are a few other updates. I decided to extend my contract for another 13 weeks. This will bring me into January. I will see from there. I will live on the boat weather permitting through November. We will see what December looks like. From there my friend Maggie has a room for me here on the Island for when ever I decide.
Bronx-Lebanon Hospital is still a crazy place to work. I really am not sure how these staff people actually can stay here and be sane. Oh, I forgot, that's why us traveler are there. Because they don't stay there and all the rest are insane. Saint Marys RULES!!!
I think I found a church for the short amount of time I am here. Its not so traditional like I have experienced but more relaxed and mostly young people 20-30 something. We meet in this coffee place type setting. http://www.gracenyc.org/.
Today I took a row in my dingy around the entire Island. It took about 4 hours. My arms are sore. I hope they are not too much worse tomorrow. Tomorrow afternoon I will taking out the boat with some friends. It should be a nice time.
