Well okay the first two weeks of my clinical have come and gone. I figure it's gotta be the worst of it ya know. The first couple of days were pretty rough on me though. The PT questioned me a lot... just random questions, "what would you do for this type of patient ... what exercises could you have this person do?" It really kept me on my ball, and while I wasn't expecting it, I feel it helped me. I always had ideas though which made me feel good... at least I learned something in school ya know. And some things were new to her because I mean she hasn't been in school for like at least 15 years, but she always gave me some new ideas too... which are actually older techniques, but they still work regardless. My clinical is at a nursing home so this is definitely a different experience for me. I go and get patients mostly right after they have their breakfast so Diane the girl I work with there and I go roam around for people finishing up in the dining room and then we bring them down in their wheelchairs for physical therapy. And basically we walk them as far as they can go a couple of times and have them do excercises... it's specific for each patient. Well anyways, it's pretty fun, and I'm enjoying it now, but it's very exhausting because I don't get home and into bed until 5pm, and then I have to be up by 11pm to get ready for work so that's only 6 hours of sleep... all week long. But I keep busy there ya know, pretty much until it's time for me to leave so I don't get too tired until the end of the day when I'm doing paper work which kind of makes the drive home difficult.
But anyways, so Thursday I went home and got like 3 hours of sleep before Bob and I went to my dad's for thanksgiving, that was fun, then we went home and I pretty much was passed out by 9... I almost made it to the end of CSI but I just couldn't. Woke up Friday at like 9 and seriously Bob and I did nothing all day pretty much. Like honestly, I can't think of one productive thing we did... well we cleaned a little, and I made cookies to bring to my grandma's. We met Jimmy and his brother Mikey at TGI Fridays, but Gina wasn't working so that pretty much sucked... our waitress was so awful... well compared to Gina anyways. Then the four of us went to best buy for awhile and then we decided to go bowling where Rick, Pat, Mike and Holli met up with us later (all individually, not as a group). I pretty much rocked the first game with a 141, and then I don't know what happened on the second game but the 3rd game I was kicking ass and then of course we ran out of time... well it's hard to bowl with 6 people and try to get 3 games done in two hours, but it only costed us all $10 each which included shoes so that was a good deal I thought. Afterwards, Holli, Mike and Pat came over and we watched the Hulk, I don't know what other stupid movie Holli watched because I don't remember watching anything besides that. But yeah, I passed out on the floor for a bit before going to bed, well I wasn't asleep that long because I don't sleep well on the floor so yeah, and I saw that Mike was sleeping on the couch and that it was 4am so I went upstairs to crash since Bob and I had to be up fairly early to go to my grandma's for thanksgiving there. That was really fun. Everyone raved over my cookies, it's a new recipe... I sort of made it up... well I took things from different recipes and thought they would turn out good and they were awesome. So I'm definitely making those again. Bob and I left my grandma's and went to Rick's house and Mindy and Jimmy were there, that was fun. LOL, laptop party! Mindy and I went to wal mart to get a couple of things and we bought the boys little gifts, we bought them each a dollar DVD, juicy fruit, an energy drink, and ring pops. Ha ha, we were watching figure it out and I totally forgot about that show! I haven't seen that show in like 8 years probably I don't know... I don't know what year that show aired. Ha ha! Lori Beth! Yeah okay and then Sunday, nothing, watched football, did some laundrey and that's basically it. Go Vikings! whoo hoo! Okay I'm done now, I have nothing else to say.
