Today was a nice, relaxing day. I have a short break between now my spring courses, so I was able to finish most of my patient care work in the early afternoon, and even had time to call a few of my older patients to see how they're doing. I love hearing their familiar voices and hearing about new stories. We usually spend a few minutes talking about their health, then the rest of the conversation is about various other things..
- "My granddaughter got a new boyfriend and he is such a moron, kids nowadays just have no respect for us old folks anymore!! Make sure Grace finds a nice boy someday."
- "A new lady just moved into the room down the hall where Glady's use to live. She's terrible... she keeps banging her walker into the wall and causing ruckus. It's times like these I wish I were deaf"
Did you know that old people are the biggest and funniest gossipers. Especially the women... holy cow, nursing homes are worse than high school for some of these women. I don't call them to hear about the gossip, they just .... tell me, and it's hilarious I tell ya. I don't even know how to respond half the time.
Another great thing I enjoy about working here is that we don't have to wear those awful, bulky, heavy white coats that are so flappy and get caught on door handles. It's been fun to be able to dress up for work. In residency, our coats were so large that it didn't matter what you wore underneath. Sometimes I wore the same pants for as long as a week at a time. Talk about lazy.. and unsanitary.
Despite how beautiful bright and vibrant colors are, I still haven't been able to find the courage to wear them to work. Maybe someday. Maybe in the spring! I admire all the fashion bloggers who can put together vibrant colors mixed with unique patterns and look fabulous. I guess as of right now I'm more comfortable with dark, neutral and "safe" colors. Yes.. I'm boring :) But hey.. whatever you're comfortable with at the moment, right? Watch, a year from now I'll be strutting around looking like Lady Gaga.
Aaron and I were able to grab a quick drink at Starbucks and walk around the clinic campus for a bit. It's nice to be able to spend time with him for a little bit during work hours. Sometimes we go to work together in the morning- he goes to study on the university campus and then we meet up for lunch. It's always nice to get that extra bit of time to spend with each other
