I have worked my butt off!!

Literally!! I have been dusting off my nursing scrubs preparing for the new job! Yay! hahaha
I was starting to get really uncomfortable in my scrub pants when I quit work 17 months ago, they were just about to burst at the seams! I was really dreading the fact that I would HAVE to buy all new ones this time. Of course I could make them myself but that is time consuming and costly too. You can really get the cutesy factor by making them yourself and I do make the tops myself and get the best compliments off of them too!! I did buy some Michael Miller fabric at the fabric store last week to make a top.....and beads to make some jewelry to match!!

So I sucked it up and went to my closet yesterday and got the tops only out and tried them on and to my amazement I had almost grown out of two of them! Now how did I do that? I mean sitting at home doing nothing but getting fatter and fatter??? That's what my mom told my cousin that I was doing! Urgh!! The rest of the lot fit just fine so they will be washed and fluffed today!

This morning I went back to the closet and reluctantly drug all those pants out and started with the ones that I knew were fairly roomy first. They were fairly roomy still!! Alright!! Then I went on down the stack....yes we nurses usually have a slew of scrubs, mine mostly from not wanting to do laundry in the middle of a 5-6 12 hr day stretch.....I went all the way to the bottom of the stack and they all fit great!! I have toned up my bottom half!! I will say that I have pumped up my top half with muscle and let's just keep it at that!!! hahaha!!!

That really made my day too! It even helped me mentally to try these scrubs on and remember that I have one of the very few public jobs that you can actually work in your PJ's!! They are very comfortable...when they fit properly that is!!! I also need to have somewhere to go to wear my extensive Dansko collection ;-)

I am quilting off and on on my Newspaper quilt that I started to quilt in 1/2010!! That's what the label that Robin made for me says anyway!! I can only do so much at a time because it's a fairly large quilt and it wears me out lugging it around and around on the machine. I plan to go upstairs and cut out several scrub tops from fabrics that I already have, purchased for that purpose, and try to slap them together assembly line style so at least I will have something new to wear on my first day of work!!!!!
Now you have got to go over to Robin's blog and read her post about what her husband got her into last night!! I laughed til I almost cried at the thoughts of this pregnant daughter of mine in this situation while her husband was about 8 hours away!! Of courseIwould kill him when he gets home if he was mine!! Go on over there for a funny funny story! Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and better yet thanks for comments. After all we all live for comments don't we??
I se you like goats and that you have a facebook page, search for The Mexico Goat. There was a goat loose in Mexico Missouri and it has a FB page. It was captured last night. the TV stations are going wild with it. T-shirts were even made.
I have a FB page too, but i don't know how to put the button on my blog.
Come back again.

I bet the ones you make have all the others drooling! Sometimes I wish I was in that line of work just so I could wear them too!

Girl you are going to be exhausted by the time you go back to work : )

Brenda said...

Congratulations on "working your butt off"! I'm sure it felt really good when the scrubs fit nicely. Best wishes for the new job.

Thanks ladies!!

Ms osage bluff quilter~ Thanks right back at ya! I will have to go check out the goat that has it's own fb page! Maybe my Saphira and Belle need thier own too!! There is alot for them to talk about, apparantly ;-)!

Ms apple pie gal~ everyone that works should be able to do so in scrubs! They are very comfy and you can really dress them up with the right fabrics too! A little fun thrown in for mostly a hard job of being a nurse! I am not sure if I have others drooling but I have had a lot of requests for home sewing for co-workers!

Ms canned quilter~ hahaha I just got a burst of "I better hurry up and get something done"!!!!

Ms Brenda~ It was a really good feeling not having to go buy the new scrubs. I had just purchased several pair before I quit work and I sure am glad that they fit me!!

Gotta love moms huh? I have one just like her. Tell you mom you had a boob job, That's why they are so tight. That will make her day!

Rebecca of Sunny Morning Farm said...

Good one Shanda!!! That will really make her think!! The trouble is I can't say anything to mom about what she said to her because she doesn't know that my cousin and I talk, it's just better that way if you know what I mean?
