Bought New Shoes AND Got A New Med Cart!

  1. Dontcha just LOOOOOOOOOVE brand spankin' new clean white shoes? :hatparty:

    I got Nurse Mates 'Karinas' and they are SOOOOOOOOOOOO comfy! I've been wearing 'em around the house for a few hours just to break 'em in and I really like 'em! I always have to try on a million pairs before I find the right ones. I had Truffles before these and they were really good, but yesterday and today my feet were KILLING me so I figured it was time for new shoesies. I've only worn Nursemates in nursing school and they were pretty comfy. I bought Rockers once and I didn't like them...I guess it's 'to each his own' It's always just such a good feeling to have some nice cozy new shoes

    AND...We got new med carts today! We were all so excited, the other depts. were looking at me and my co-worker like we were nuts! They just don't get it! We turned our old med carts into 'new' treatment carts. We always had to share one treatment cart between the two of us, so now we have two which makes things a lot easier...It's Christmas in March!! hehehe

    Congrats HErEYes! That's awesome (about the shoes AND the medcarts!)

    Jnette, WOOOT! You must be so excited.

    I get excited over the small stuff, too. Life just wouldn't be as pleasant if I didn't, ya know?

    I love new shoes...but, I just can't do white. I get way too much stuff on them. Ick (I know the gross stuff is on my dark shoes too, but at least I can't see it )

    Have fun with your new medcarts too--I love when we get new stuff. :hatparty:

    Last night at work (only my second day) my co-workers and I snuck upstairs to our new unit that should be finished in April. It is soooo awesome! I can't wait, everyone is so excited about moving.

    How silly that the little things make us so happy!

    yep, now that I have berkies nothing else will do. But I refuse to wear white anymore, it's not too long before they look old and dirty.

    Since my facility's administration is stuck back in 1950, we must wear head to toe white. They don't even like it when you wear tennis shoes with the teensiest bit of color on them. I suppose since they give us a uniform allowance, they get to tell us what to wear. Too bad we look like the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Men/Women! :chuckle
