A Quick Update

I keep hoping that I will get some really amazing photos to post but either I leave my camera in my car and I don't have it with me when a moose comes slowly wandering across the road...then stops and poses for me while we are driving, or just standing along the trail Jed and I were jogging--moose are everywhere and really ugly beasts!

Today I begged Jed to go running with me or do anything physically active. I feel like I have been sitting idle for two weeks. Today I was sitting at my desk feeling really annoyed that I have been sitting for so long! So luckily I didn't have to beg Jed too much--then I had to beg him to wait for me!

I continue to love my job. I love the people I work with and I am continually amazed at the service the people receive here. The funding seems so much greater and there is a lesser population so the funds are more readily available, unlike Utah with a large populations and limited funds. However, it is very difficult to staff as many hours as they are funded to receive. I love my job and everyday feel so blessed to be able to have such a great job to help me transition.


  1. Sarah! I am officially one of your blog followers....I just found out that you have a blog. What on earth are you doing in Alaska? Maybe I'll get stationed out there sometime....(I'm joining the Air Force as a nurse in January)....

  2. P.S. My blog is determinatio.blogspot.com

  3. I am glad you like your job and that you are meeting people and getting used to your new life. Have you gotten together with Nicole yet? What are your work hours like?

  4. I love moose! They are my favorite so I must be in right spot. I have a "Moose counter" on my sidebar and I just added an earthquake counter to see who will win over the course of our stay here. So far the moose are leading 25 to 6.

    PS how about dinner this Sunday?

  5. Sarah I am glad to hear you are doing so well. I am glad you have not gotten attacked by a moose. I was also wondering if i sent you some of the berievment packages if you would like to donate them to the hospital in alaska? Let me know. These are really cute. Love ya Hilpy
