Hemming

The countdown to practicum is inching slowly along (7 days!). I actually had a nightmare last night, that I was at practicum, in my new place, and had forgotten to pack everything I needed. Must remember stethoscope. I am freaking out actually - excited and nervous at the same time.

I'm up one pair of scrubs, but have yet to get my existing pair all all hemmed up. So that leaves me with a grand total of 1 pair that are functional. The new pair I bought came in shorter lengths, which is awesome, since I'm short. What was kind of frustrating is that I tried on a dozen pairs of scrub pants before the scrub lady thought to bring me the short size! She was going on and on about hemming but wait - if only there was some way to tell that I am short just by looking at me. But I digress. Ok. So one pair of new scrubs, one pair on order (that will need to be hemmed - Mobbs don't come in short), and one pair of old ones (that still need to be hemmed). So eventually I will have 3 pairs, which I think will fulfill my scrub needs. One never knows the amount human goo that will end up on my hospital wear.  

And this is good news too - although I would want them in white. Keen makes hospital shoes! How awesome!

So far (in my second year Hospital Rotations) I have been flip flopping between a pair of Saucony Runners and my Merrell Hospital Shoes (see right). 
The Merrell's are pretty comfy, but not near as cute as the Keens! Maybe when they wear out.
