I got the nod yesterday to go ahead and submit my resignation this week. I just need to pick the day…tomorrow, Thursday or Friday. But it needs to be done by the end of this week, because I’m headed to Atlanta in the beginning of August for 3 days of training for some of the work I’ll be doing for Chris. The plan for my health/dental is settled. The training is set up. After the training, I’ll be working about 10 hours/week for him….and then roughly 2 or 3 times a year, I’ll need to travel to their clients corporate offices and conduct a 2 week training program for end users (usually corp. attorneys) on how to utilize their software program.
In between those training sessions – – I’m working from home for them. Plus working on my other ventures, as well. I want to keep my toes in nursing..so I’m deciding what to do about that. I could go to work for one of those temporary nursing agencies and do a few shifts/month. Or I could talk to my current employer about staying on as a ‘visit nurse’ and give them 4-5 days a month where I’ll help out with patient visits and help with some of the overflow. I haven’t decided yet.
But the resignation is coming up before this weekend. I’ve been talking and yaking and babbling about this for how long? It’s been my goal. It’s been what I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for. And now, today – realizing that it’s actually going to happen this week – – I find my self waking up with a very nervous stomach.
Nervous because of change? Because my boss is going to have a fit? Because her boss is going to freak? Or because I’m just a chicken shit and have an urge to print out my resignation and slip it underneath her door and bolt? All of the above.
In the end – I’m sure it will go just fine – the concept of it is just making me nervous today.
