the day has come. i am now employed.

youre thinking, "whats with the old man?" well....he is part of my new job. i began working for north american healthcare at the coventry court facility on thursday as a marketer. it is a rehabilitation center, so this is where people who have just had surgery (ie. a hip replacement) come to recover and rehabilitate. often times (well most of the time) our patients are old. they fall and get injured, are hospitalized and then come to us. we have physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and wound specialists all on site while nurses provide care that a patient would need post-operation. it is basically a mini-hospital.
my job entails the pr, marketing, community relations and customer service of the facility. in a way, the marketing i do is like pharmaceutical sales w/out the drugs. i go flirt...i mean....see different doctors to tell them about our facility and bring them their favorite cookies and stuff to swoon them into referring us patients. i am soooo excited for this job! my boss is fabulous and hilarious. it is in anaheim (only 20 minutes away). it is 9-5 (ok, early for me, but not too early!!). and i get to be at all the big meetings with the heads of all departments, so i feel pretty darn special. it is also a great industry to get into - good thing i had good referrals (thanks katie and brooke). there is one other full-time marketer, so it is a little stressful to think that it is up to the two of us to fill-up the facility with patients, but i am soooo ready!!! game on. watch out work force - here i come.

pole. dancing.

our beloved katie is getting married tomorrow and there is no other way to celebrate (prepare on her part) than to take a pole and lap dance class. it was sooooo fun and quite the work out. i think my thighs and arms are going to be sore tomorrow. so worth it. i even bought stripper shoes for the occasion. my husband is gonna be one lucky man.

he was at my ward today.

he literally looked plastic...and shiny. and was wearing the tackiest gray suit with white pin-stripes and a pink shirt. yes, his wife and her fake boobs were there as well. and maybe i wanted to ask him how much he charged for an augmentation, but i knew i couldnt afford him, or anyone for that i need a job...
