I love my new job. At the old one, I had to park across the street because our parking lot was so small. As soon as I got out of my car, I was assaulted by images of panhandlers and street walkers, not to mention the newspaper racks full of adult advertising. Yesterday, at my new job, I drove to work, parked next to the building, and, as I walked to the doorway, saw bunnies playing in the dew-wet grass, quail running through the brush, and a sparrow carrying a huge mouthful of string in which to build a nest.

On the weekends I take call from 8am-noon. Today I got called in for a two-part test. I injected the patient at 8am, took 15 min of pictures, shuttled her off to her room...and then drove down to the lake. I watched the carp play in the water, two raptors float on the thermals above, and a little chipmunk poke his head in and out of the lava rock entrance to his home. Two hours later, I returned to the hospital and did 20 more minutes of delayed imaging on the patient and happily drove home. Life is good.

ROFLMAO!!! When I read your title, I thought you had made a new drawing for us; you know, those optical illusion drawings where you see either the 2 vases or the profile of a person. I thought you'd be asking us if we saw

I figured if anyone could pull this off, it would be you! <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> I'm so easily amused (not to mention, confused!)

Glad to hear you like the new place..... :love:

I'll admit I didn't know at first where your subject line was going, but based on the differences in your job locale descriptions, it would be a no-brainer to know which one I'd want to be heading to. Natural rather than hard core surroundings make even less than perfect work days easier to take. <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I can relate to your post, Marian. When I was substitute teaching I hated to go a certain school in the inner city (well, as inner city as we get around here). Parking was a pain in the a$$, and there was nothing but concrete around - no playyard with grass. There was a blacktop basketball court and a jungle gym. The houses and businesses were kind of dumpy too. But the school I was at all last year and will be next year is on the edge of town. We have our own parking lot (no more fighting the rest of town for spots on the street) and we have deer, red-tailed hawks, box turtles, rabbits, squirrels, etc. We have a large playing field and a nice mulched playground, a courtyard, and a nature trail. I love it. And apparently a lot of our city does too, because we have a lot of kids come from out of district.

Lois, that sounds like a very nice place to work! Any chance you could get to stay on a permanent basis??
