Get me a job here!

Newsweek 2008 20 top children's hospital.
So I went through ALL and I mean ALL of these hospital's and maybe about 5-7 are hiring OTs right now, that is if their websites are up to date. Many of the hospitals in the med center in Houston are on a hiring freeze too. sigh. I guess it's ok that I'm not really looking for a job right now and hopefully when I'm ready to get a job, hospitals are hiring again. I could go work for clinics, but I don't really want to. Clinics are not a bad place to be. I just want to see more of a variety of diagnoses, that's all.

At least I did one of my affiliations at Texas Children's!

The end is near...

I will fill you in on life in about 2.5 days when I'll be completely D-O-N-E with fieldwork and school! Well almost done, still have to study and take the boards but whatever! 3 months has flown by, that's all I have to say.

Actually give me a week. This weekend is loaded.

Last First Day

My first day at Texas Children's starts tomorrow (last rotation!), well today, and I'm still awake. Vacation always screws up my sleeping schedule. I have yet to get up out of my bed before 10 am in the past 2 weeks. Good luck to me!

I hope everyone has a spectacular 2009!
This will be a year full of changes with tons of memories made!
I'm excited to see what God has planned =)

Horrible Football Day

It began with playing football on my church league. Back to back games. Sigh lost the first one. Sucked. Second one was going ok until my guy and I were going for a flag. Somehow I end up on the ground and rolled over what I discovered to be an ant pile! Ants all over me when I got up! On my back, my left arm mostly, and chest. Ahhhhhh...I started screaming and dancing gto et them off! I was definitely doing a dance on the sidelines. I have at least 20 bites on my arm, back, chest, ear, and even on my scalp. Awesome. Thanks Jason for leaving in the middle of the game to get me some benadryl and cortizone. The second game wasn't over yet. On one play I was blocker and this girl that was rushing, runs her shoulder into my jaw to get by. At least the ref called penalty. The ref sucked. So many calls that should have been called and too many that shouldn't have been called. Like pass interference on me. You cannot be hanging onto my hip and leg before the ball even gets to me. But it didn't called. Needless to say, we lost by one in that game.

Then comes the big one. Texas v Texas Tech. Enough said. Sucked. Horns need football 101 to learn how to catch a ball on defense and offense and how to tackle. Really guys? Last 2 plays of the game?! Freaking learn to catch and learn to tackle. Still pissed.
