hug me

I've found what will make my life complete: The Hug Me Pillow:

If you really love me, you will buy me this for Valentine's Day. Here's what the website said:

The perfect snuggling companion, the Hug Me pillow provides comfort as well as piece of mind.

  • Unique shape provides firm sleeping support
  • Microfiber shirt is incredibly soft and conveniently machine washable
  • Woven from 100-percent polyester
  • Use as a body pillow or neck roll
  • Pillow is dry clean only, shirt is machine washable

Is this crazy or what? I just had to share. And by the way, I'm kidding.

I love wearing scrubs. Except for last week. After working really late one night on notes and wanting to sleep in, I decided to wear scrubs to work. Then a patient asked me, "Why are you wearing those blue things? You looked so nice the last time we came in and today you're wearing those." Great for the ego.

Granted, the scrubs are part of the uniform. I get to chose if I want to wear scrubs or 'real' clothes. And since we get our scrubs through a uniform service, some don't fit as well as others. And I'm not allowed to wear any other scrubs. Like my cute OU ones or my pink and black with my black crocs. I want to wear REAL scrubs!
(look how long my hair was--this is my trying to look like I'm doing something important look)
There have been times in the past that I don't allow myself to wear the scrubs since I tend to want to "fill them out." ie: gain weight. Since they're not 'real' clothes it's hard to tell how much you really weigh. Although, tight (and I do mean tight) scrubs aren't cute. Some of the scrubs are folded nicely in my closet because I can't wear them.

But these were some of my baggy ones. They weren't tight.

Really? Are you really going to tell somebody that? That they don't look nice?

Almost as nice as the pat on the stomach while asking, "When's your baby due?"
Nope. Just fat. Thanks, though.

Both things that should not be said. Please don't tell your health care provider that if they show up in your room with scrubs on. Why not complement them on showing up for work? Or thanking them for showering before coming to see you. There are other ways to make conversation.

And, on another note, why do Sweet Tarts continue to make green ones? I thought life was better when the yellow stopped showing up. Don't they know no one eats the green ones. I have a nice pile right here by the computer. I would like more blue ones instead. Maybe I can return them to Wal-Mart and ask for a refund. Reason for return: too many green Sweet Tarts!

Life at Omni Owasso MOB has been a bit crazy since returning from Miami. What ever was keeping the patients away in December must have left. We've been CRAZY BUSY. So I haven't been posting much, since my evenings are spent finishing up notes at home. I've been up to at least 11pm most nights trying to get things finished.

Anyway, I have a great quote from the past week:

A new patient brought her teenage daughter to her new office appointment. We were discussing the lab I was going to order: CBC , Chem 14, TSH, lipid panel, ect. . . When her daughter asked what the thyroid gland is.

So you know me, loving to teach. I begin to explain that thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system and helps regulate your metabolism and hair.

And she said, "My thyroid must be curly." (She had curly hair)

I just love kids!

theme song for my valentine's day

Is playing to your right! I just love it. So much in fact that I'm kinda gettin' tired of the song. But who gets to sing about single ladies? I love that Beyonce still remembers us.

And if you're not single anymore, you can still sing along! And dance. And maybe throw your hands up! Burn off some of those holiday calories!

And I don't celebrate valentine's day. I think it's a farce Hallmark made up! I don't participate. But I liked the backgrounds! And my theme song.

So there ya go!

miami pics


So the game wasn't so fun.

But I had a fabulous time in Florida. 80 Degrees. Flip Flops. Capris. An afternoon on a boat in the sun. Life can't get much better.

Let me tell you, I spent Monday in bed. One, because we hadn't slept much, and Two, because I was still pouting about the game.

I meant to get on here and write all about it. But I was in bed.

At least I don't drink or do drugs when I get depressed. I just sleep. Could be worse!

I'm working on getting a slideshow put together and will post it ASAP!

And maybe next year. I just heard Sam is coming back! WOO HOO!! But I won't be going to the bowl game. I'll be at home, saving my money, throwing a REALLY big party!!

And a quote from Ed, "I'm still a Sooners fan!"
