Well this week was the first week at my new job as a nurse at Inova Fairfax Hospital.  It technically wasn’t work… just orientation, but I did get paid! Tomorrow I go in for my first 12 hour shift with my preceptor!  I am excited and nervous.  I will let you know how it goes!


My sweet husband surprised me with a dozen red roses in celebration of my new job!!
