  • Slept 8 1/4 hours with light 5 1/2 hours of that. turned over at 7 am and the schnauzers took that to mean, time to get up. Romeo pins my legs, Shilo gets on my chest and starts licking and gumming my hands and Juliet bounces on what she can reach. Quite the wake-up!

    Today, I'm working on that stack of reading in the morning and writing the background and significance portion in the afternoon. In between, I'm getting a facial - still trying to counteract the stress breakouts - skipped facial, took a nap. Dinner will be crispy chicken thighs and veggies.

    Did 3 loads of laundry yesterday. Washing new scrubs right now and will have to iron 1 set to wear tomorrow. I have my first day with a clinical group tomorrow. I'm nervous. Will spend some time tonight organizing myself. Have to be there at 0600 and need to figure out parking and what not. Also hope I can eat clean.

    I'm home with no significant travel until May 8! DH and I go to San Antonio this weekend for a friend's anniversary. I hope to start seeing my weight go down with clean home eating!

    • What color are the scrubs? Are they plain? Do you have to wear a certain color?

        I got solid color royal blue (school color) and black (my personal favorite). I prefer mixing it up with colorful scrub jackets.

        • I like mixing solid colors. I love dark purple with blue or green. I don't need new scrubs, but I am lusting some spring type things like maybe orange or yellow.

          When I was a student, they made us purchase a lab coat, white pants with a high elastic waist, and a blue polo/golf shirts. If they were deliberately trying to make us feel uncomfortable they could not have done a better job. We had to buy them from a vendor and the materials were cheap, stiff, uncomfortable, and ill-fitting. Now of course I go mad with comfort and color!

          • I look for a higher cotton % than man made. Yes they are less "polished" but they are soooo much more comfortable.

            • When I worked at Brigham and Women's they provided our scrubs - classic ceil blue, 100% cotton and silky soft. I loved those scrubs! I've never found any quite like them, material-wise.

              • JOB NEWS:

                Got the phone call late today. Associate professor, 2-year contract (their equivalent of tenure track), salary for 9-months (typical of academics August-May) more than my current 9-month salary, and if I work more than 4 units a long semester (way less than I do now). I have until Monday to get back to them. I want to talk to the Dean, because with my summer pay (I work 12 months), I need to add 4 units over 12 months to make it work.

                Just talked to Dean and extra is not a problem! I will officially accept Wednesday.

                I also found a crossfit <5 miles from my house with unlimited visits at a significantly discounted monthly rate for nurses.

                              • 3 1/2 restless hours of sleep. First day as clinical instructor for local school. Have pork chops in slow cooker ready to turn on before I go out the door in an hour. Worried about getting all the paperwork right - as long as no one gets hurt, I'm guessing it will be ok.
