Just an idea

Today a new lightbulb has come on that I'm not sure what to make of. Not sure where it will lead is what I mean. I had been speaking to a nursing travel agency since Friday about an assignment (not that my other job hasn't come through yet, they're just dragging their feet about getting back to me while the clock is still ticking loudly). Anyways, I was looking only in the area that I had planned to move to and told the agency that I would take the housing subsidy vs. using their housing (because I thought you couldn't use their housing if you had a family with you).
Well, I was just looking around on their website and read that all of their housing is private and will fit whatever lifestyle you have--single, single w/kids, married, married with kids, pets, boat...you name it. They will arrange it and pay for a one bedroom and you have to pay the difference above and beyond.
This got me wondering whether or not my family would like to travel for a while and see the country! I know Madelaine will hate, hate, hate it and I don't know if I have the patience to home school Amelia (Scott does more than me, so he might win that position). But, if being homeschooled meant that for 3 months you got to live in Florida or Arizona or California or Washington--or even New York City, wouldn't that be worth it?? I mean besides the fee healthcare, free AAA, completion bonuses and free housing (on TOP of your wages), being able to see places you've never seen would be pretty cool I think. But I'm not my kids. So if I'm able to I want to take this initial assignment and we'll have a family meeting about it. This family needs a vacation so bad it might be a good idea.

Hmmmm, well that's certainly an option you hadn't thought of before. Could make for an interesting year....
I always thought that would be a rather exciting and interesting job. The furniture vendor my company sells mainly hires nurses for their healthcare division so as to hear their thoughts and design a product that works. Essentially be a nurse consultant and assist us dumb designers on how to make hospitals more patient and staff friendly. Ever thought of that?

That sounds like a great idea... It would be awesome to see the different places and experience so many new things... It may help you guys get that "jump" start that you need and want.

I'm with Megan! What an amazing opportunity that would be... but yeah, of course you've gotta find out what your kids would think of it. Another thing I will pray about for you!!
