new job, new bag

whirlwind!
yesterday was completely crazy for me -- but honestly, i loved every second of it. i have so much to organize and process right now, but i think that within a few weeks i have my own system down. there are so many things to keep track of, from educational/conference responsibilities (of which there are an amazing amount of) to patient care details to documentation. luckily, borderline-OCD record-keeping is my specialty!

this sounds totally cheesy, but i am flooded with the general sense that i am headed into the right career.

plus, i got THESE:


props to the first person to identify this useful tool in the comments :) i'll be totally impressed (or perhaps slightly disturbed?) if a non-medical person gets it!

fashion friday
i also got this:


i love the trompe l'oeil effect, and for under $100 for orla, the price was right! my old bag is starting to show its age -- i have lugged it around the hospital for nearly 3 years now, after all. plus, i am in need of a bit more capacity since i no longer have a dedicated place to put my stuff (i do have a shared office, but it's at the clinic down the street, not at the main hospital building).

if anyone reading this is looking to purchase an orla kiely bag, the spring/summer 2010 line is on supersale right now! i'm not sure i've ever seen them this inexpensive before. check it out here.

happy friday
3 day weekend = so full of exciting possibilities!

7.1.10

workout: 5 miles outside in CH with 2 at tempo
mile 0-1.5: 9:27/mi
mile 1.5 - 3.5: 8:33/mi
mile 3.5 - 5: 9:12/mi

clean eating cookthrough: actually, this dinner featured a vegetable/pasta sauce from CE that i pulled out of the freezer! we are terrible about eating things once they end up in the frigid abyss, so i was glad to use it up.


whole wheat pasta + the aforementioned sauce, served topped with feta and with arugula, tomato, and chickpea salad

reading: i don't have any exciting endocrine knowledge to report this AM as i ended up just catching on paperwork including finishing 3 consult notes. it was a busy first day!

Mock testicles!!! Sorry, I've cheated, I'm medical! In the British Medical Journal a couple of Christmases ago, they did a paper about how common chocolates available at Christmas time can be used as a substitute if the real deal isn't available (tongue very firmly in cheek)

Ha ha Katie, that is so funny!
I guessed some kind of cheat sheet for dosage, I dn't know where I got that from.
Have a great long weekend!

I have no clue what those beads are. They totally look like fertility beads to me, haha!

Ha ha ha! When I woke up this morning and started my blog reading, I did a double take when I saw a picture of Prader's orchidometer. And, I was a little disturbed that I know that. I am a Kindergarten teacher! But, in all fairness, I did listen to my boyfriend's lecture on testicular torsion many, many times :o)

I just ordered a bag from there - thanks for the advice! I need a sturdy bag since I am going back to nursing school!

Took me a minute to realize what those were. Hadn't seen them in quite a while. There's not much testicular sizing going on in adult rheumatology!!
