My Day Off

So yesterday I finally had a day off of work. Remember that new job I told you I got? Well here are the details (and therefore most of the reason I have been neglecting my little blog):

I work in a transitional care area in the acute care unit. 

A transitional care unit is where you have patients with long term needs that are not medically stable enough to do via home health or in a nursing home/long term care unit. So instead of staying in a hospital, their insurance will send them to an acute care transitional unit to cut cost.

So far so good! It is good experience that will get me into a hospital one day hopefully. :-) It has been super busy trying to get oriented and I have been doing lots of shifts. Should normalize today. Should being the main word there...haha!

I finally got yesterday off and I was stoked. I had a list of things that I needed to accomplish:

clean the floors
clean the bathrooms
clean the kitchen
clean the house in general
prepare dinner
map out a plan for dinners this week
go work out (for the first time in ages)
catch up on all you amazing bloggers I follow
start some blog posts
enroll in work benefits
look at some fantasy football options
make zucchini bread
Pick out wedding prints

The crossed out ones actually got done. I was more productive then I thought! But the important ones like the wedding prints and the zucchini bread didn't get done. Instead I added being a lazy bum watching TV to the list. Checked that one off pretty thoroughly. 

Alright, off to get ready for work. Catch ya on the flip side!

ohhh. and...
I may have some pretty exciting news soon. Stay tuned!!
10 points if you can guess what it is!


  1. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog Lauren! Mmmm zucchini bread sounds yummy, sorry you didnt get to make it, but you were really productive on your day off!

    Looking forward to the exciting news!! (^_^)

  2. You were super productive! I'm going to have to get some of your hard-working skills :)

  3. Such a productive day! I should be doing some of those items today, but here I sit reading blogs :)

  4. Nice, I wish I was home today to get some of those things done!! I definitely need to work out and there is mucho laundry to be done! ;)

  5. I'm impressed that you were able to accomplish so much on your day off! Good luck at the new job. :)

  6. WOW! That is a lot of accomplishment on your day off. I would have crossed nothing off except being lazy and watching TV. ;-)

    I am dying to hear this exciting news!!

  7. Congrats again on the new job! I think it would be neat to work at a place you can build relationships with people (as long as they're friendly...) haha. do you see the peeps on a daily basis or is it someone new each time you go in?

  8. Way to go! I'd be in my pjs and on the couch.

  9. News... baby on the way?? :) I kid.

  10. Glad you like your new job. It is a bummer spending your day off cleaning though.

  11. I used to work at a residential unit and I would fear for the women who worked at the acute unit, that is hard stuff. I just found your blog via the blog hop, I am excited to follow. Come follow along

  12. yay for being productive...oh and sitting on the couch watching tv is totally okay when you've checked off all that stuff from your list! :)

  13. Seriously that was such a productive day! Even when I plan on having the most productive day there is usually something to distract me aka tv. When I had to pick out my wedding prints it took me weeks to decide so I am glad that your a fellow slacker in that department.

  14. I love getting the activities on lists crossed out. And sometimes you just need to add "watching tv" to the list, then you can cross that on out too!

  15. Newest follower. Love your blog!

  16. that is a long list!! im impressed.

  17. You bought a home??? Either way, I'm excited to hear your news! Hugs to you!


Comments make my day!
