Jen Jen the.... RN!!

I just recieved a little e-mail from our own Jen Newman, and I'm sure that everyone misses her so I thought I would pass it along to ya'll!

Wow...what a pleasant surprise to open my e-mail and see a note from you...funny that there are two Jen Newman's at intermountain, I (and I'm sure many of you) thought that one was more than enough!! Well...I miss you guys like crazy!! Fourth floor was my home away from home for two years and it is strange not seeing everyone everyday. I do have to say that I am very happy to not be spending my entire life savings on gas...especially with the new prices. Suddenly, waking up at four am seems like a strange idea.

Well, the ER is amazing. It is everything that I had hoped for and more. There is no stopping from the minute that my shift starts to the end...but I thrive on chaos so I love it. I have learned more in the two months working here than I think I ever did in nursing school. I have definitely seen some amazing things and learn something new everyday. I passed boards the beginning of June so I am officially Jen the RN.
I hope this email finds everyone happy and healthy. Hopefully one day soon I will come and float back down to happy valley....

Love Jen

I looked out the window & what did I see?

Just a little point of fact that we figured out this afternoon at lunch.... Contrary to a popular Internet video popcorn will not pop if you place it in the center of 4 or 5 cell phones and call them simultaneously. I ruined a perfectly good package of microwave-able popcorn for this little experiment.. and I feel bamboozled! Yes, friends, this IS what we do at work. And the kicker? It wasn't even night shift!

I opened my locker the other day when I got to work, and sitting there was Carla's deck of Phase 10 cards. It made me a little sad to know that it's for real this time. She is actually leaving us. The actual day of departure has been postponed so many times, that I think we all grew too comfortable thinking she would never really leave us. But- sad to say- Monday is her last shift. We will miss you Carla! You always make work fun! Make sure you e-mail us and let us know how things are going in Sunny California.

Son Of A Monkey!

I tried to get all sorts of fancy with the template of this blog... and lost a bunch. Sorry- I will try and fix everything in the next few days. If you gave me your site to put on the blog, and it is no longer there- I need your address again.
Sorry again!

Movie Night II

We just had our second movie night at Janets- those of you who weren't there missed out on fun! Everyone (with the exception of Kevin :) was invited). We watched Goonies this time. Great 80's flick if you ask me! I am sure we will be doing it again- as long as Janet is okay with letting us invade her house! If you have an idea for the next movie let me know and we'll see what we can do!
Hello all! I have added a new element that will link you to the individual blog sites of people on our floor. Tiffanie is the first person on there- take a look- it's a great site! Also- let me know your site and I'll put it on the list (I do have the address to some of yours, but don't want to list them until you say it's okay. So let me know)!
Also, I have added some trivia for the month- take your best guess.
I hope you are all having a great summer!
