Maybe It Is Time For That Microdermabrasion...

10 year ago today I went into the MTC to then go on a mission to Geneva Switzerland. YIKES!

You Can Take The Girl Out Of Oregon But...

I'm wondering if I'm the only person in Salt Lake that is excited today is a cool, overcast, rainy, Saturday. I guess the skiers are happy too.

I know I just happy to have my new down comforter. It's warm and toasty and I love the kinda crunchy sound it makes when I wrap up in it.

Mish-Mash of an Update

I've been in Salt Lake for a little over a month now.

I've started my job at the University of Utah hospital. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and I'm learning a ton. I'm in orientation still which means I spend 8 weeks adjusting to the floor before they let me free to take care of patients on my own. I'm sure the patients are happy about that.

I just spent the last 3 days in a nursing orientation that was lots of 30 minute - 1 hour lessons on all sorts of hospital stuff. The MRI part was the best. We saw a video describing the dangers of the magnet and then actually showed wrenched and buckets smashing through bricks to get to the magnet. Sadly, I couldn't find a video online, but here are some pictures, including a chair and an oxygen tank, plus a video of a chair being removed.

So life is good, meeting new people, finally all unpacked and into my cute apartment, had a delicious birthday dinner with a beautiful lemon cake AND a dark chocolate cake too, and I'm in a ward where I am among the youngest people there, that's unusual at 33.
