Johnny started back to work last Friday. He's working days now which is nice in lots of ways. It's nice to be able to have dinner together and snuggle up at night. His first day was a bit rough, but I think he's doing better. I think it's hard for him to tell because he's tired, but there's less swelling in his leg/foot when he gets home. The only downside of him working days is that I get to get up with him before he goes to work at 4 am and bandage the one incision on his heel that still needs bandaging. Just call me "Nurse Carol."
I also started our (my) first workkamping gig here at Millwood Landing RV & Golf Resort. This is actually a membership park -- part of Ocean Canyon Properties. They were looking for a part time sales admin person in their membership sales office. I talked to them and viola! I'm now workkamping. 24 hours a week. My job is to greet tour participants when they arrive, get their basic information and make sure contracts are completed correctly, payments are collected and recorded correctly and all the files are up to date. So far I'm setting my own schedule based on when they have tours -- primarily Friday, Saturday, Sunday and now Monday.
I started training Saturday and worked Sunday and Monday. We're actually paid here through May 15, so I'm looking at this as "banked hours" for those times we need to go back to Austin for Johnny's doctor appointments or our trip to Daytona Beach, Florida in July.
Since Johnny's here working and I'd much rather be here with him than not, I decided workkamping makes sense. At least I have something better to do than just sit around all day everyday. And the site and utilities are covered.
We really like the park here. The only downside is there is no laundry room... so it's off to the laundromat today for me.
