Fall is finally here! I'm so excited. This is my favorite season. I have waited so long to wear cozy sweaters and hats. I love how the world looks like it's on fire with all the yellow, orange and red. It like the world is showing that it's time for change and change is good.
I got the job at Legacy and I will start at Meridian Park Hospital on the 20th of this month. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. This is a huge step in my career (not to mention a huge pay raise). I will be working in the orthopedic medical/surgical unit. In a nutshell that means that I will be taking care and monitoring patients who have just had surgery on their spines, hips, knees, and various other joints. This job will give me an opportunity to learn and be a part of a new and upcoming ortho unit. It's an exciting place to be right now.
This last weekend I went to the beach with my parents. It was a fun trip. I haven't got to spend as much time with my parents lately because of school and work. Ryan had to work all weekend and I had it off so I suggested a trip to my parents and they jumped on it. The weather was crazy there with all the wind and rain. But we had fun all the same. My parents like to gamble. The love the Vegas. Me on the other hand am not so lucky when it comes to gambling so I really don't do it. Well my parents talked me into going to the casino with them and my dad gave me $40.00 and told me that I couldn't complain because it wasn't my money. So I hit some slots and guess what...I actually won! I was so excited. I won enough money to buy myself two new Coach purses at the outlet, a bunch of clothes and still come home with $150 in my wallet. Not to shabby. Maybe my luck is finally shifting :-)
Ryan and I have been looking at taking a trip. This last April we went to Disneyland and had a blast. So we are trying to figure out where to go this coming spring. The options right now are Vegas (which neither of us have been to), a cruise in Mexico or just staying in Mexico 0r Hawaii (I wonder if Taylor is reading this). We are looking at going in mid April. Any other suggestions of places to go? We both have worked really hard and deserve a vacation!
Since fall is here and I have been talking about change I have been wanting to get a new hair cut. I just have no clue what to do. My friend Julie just chopped hers off and it looks amazing. But I don't think that I am brave enough to do that. So I am on the prowl for a new style. Keep posted for when I finally take the plunge.
Lastly, I've been trying to post a blog with pictures and it's not working for me. It will only let me post pictures at the top of the blog, not within the text. Does anyone know how to make the pictures go within the text?
