New Job

I started my new job on Friday!  I toughed it out in the ugly green.  What is completely stupid is that NURSES cannot wear white at this place!  ALL because nutrition services wears white.  I bet Florence Nightingale is rolling in her grave!!!

Anyways!  It is a full time position! The pay is excellent!  I'm actually working the Long Term Care unit for now.  I'm terrified and equally excited about it.  I just know that everyday one of the sweet residents is bound to put a smile on my face.  I couldn't help but smile while I was touring the unit. 

We peeked in one of the resident rooms and I saw the most precious funny sight!  Two sweet wrinkly old ladies were both in their beds watching America's Funniest Home videos and were laughing hysterically at the TV.  Not just giggling...they were knee-slapping-crying-almost-about-to-fall-out-of-bed-laughing.  It was contagious.  I can't wait to get to know these sweet people!

I can't actually work on the floor until my Tb 2-step process tests is finished.  I think I'll be on the floor by August 30th. 

the most wasted of all days is one without laughter
