A week already...???

I can't believe I haven't written in a whole week. This on-call I am now has been very busy all day. The night is better so far--but I woke up after only 3 hours sleep and can't seem to go back to sleep. So I got up and wrote up my reports and are playing now on the internet. Now that I am in the 2 educational unit of the year--we have changed groups and all my group learnings and process is with the other 2nd year residents. And it is much better!! I enjoy the lectures again and am learning. I love my three students as well and they are doing well so far. Soon I will hear if and when I will be entered into the supervisory in training program officially. It better be good news or I will feel my time has been wasted here. I will be surprised if they don't except me--I am just worried they may say let's wait a little or go super slow. The 11th will be the big day of knowing--I hope it isn't put off any longer. I am off now to brush my teeth and face the units again to check on a few patients--and hopefully than I can sleep again for a bit.

Big Plans today and I am working out my decision

Ohhhh....we are going to see Sweet Honey In The Rock today with co-workers. I can't wait to see them and enjoy their music. The other item is I finally started preparing for baby and getting healthier in general as well. I have put on more weight since the wedding even and it doesn't make me happy. So...I am finally mentally geared up to start working on it. Taking vitamins, drinking more water, less soda and less sugared soda too. We will go exercise this weekend as well. And I am taking my temperature daily to help get ready for possible insemination this summer. Next week I will call to get an appointment for a yearly exam and whatever else needs to happen. What fun!!

Love Thursdays!!

I just finished with my 3 practicum students and another lecture/orientation session with them. I love it. They are eager and ask good questions. I can't wait till next week and see what happens when they begin visiting patients and have examples they can relate to. I wasn't sure how much I would love teaching--now I know it makes a huge difference for me in loving my job as well. What fun!!

See bald can work!

Good for her--Melissa Etheridge showed that bald can be absolutely stunning. She looked great and sounded amazing at the Grammy's. Way to go girl! And love that the Christian rap artist who walked away with 3 awards and performed live as well. Very cool. I also wanted you all to know I fired my therapist as for my 3rd session, she cancelled my appointment because she got too busy being away the following week. Say what? Done with you and on to find another. And I wasn't sure if I was being too hard on her. :) I have posted here and it got lost and then I get frustrated and don't try for a bit. I will keep at it so don't go away disappointed just yet. Luv ya!

The weather this past weekend was wonderful. I finally had some time to work on cleaning up the branches knocked down by the ice storm and the recent rain storm. Diana and I gave Doc a hair cut with clippers and he is a little funny looking with his hair not all the same level anymore. Oh well, hopefully we will get better with practice. It helps save money, but Diana won't let me clip my hair top save even more money. I guess I should be glad she is looking out for my best interest. Who knows what I would look like bald anyway?! Back to Law and Order...

Some interesting news I found today...

...Psychology Today had a short story about people who are sleep deprived are fatter. There is some correlation to appetite, cravings, and lack of sleep. And I wondered why I was gaining weight--it really is due to CPE and my 24 hour shifts every week! Now only I need is a correlation between intelligence and weight loss I would be balanced. Heehee. Diana comes home today from her conference and I missed her very much--so it will be nice to have her home again. Doc will be all over her too I imagine, he hates it when we aren't both around. Well, I better get going I have a few things to do before my honey gets home!

I am happy!

I worked an overnight last night and I am so happy--I slept! No more calls after 9 PM for me. The last call was around 9 and she could be seen in the morning, so I decided not to go and start to relax. I was even able to lie down around 10 PM and asleep not long afterwards. My body and soul needed that quiet night and some rest. It is also nice not to be bitchin so early in the morning too. :)

I am paying for this!

Okay, so I just realized this is quickly becoming my "bitch page"...sorry about that. I promise to write something more positive soon. But first as I was saying.....I need to see a therapist for my chaplain training. Okay that is fine, I have been in therapy before and loved it when I had a good match with the therapist. So I start up last week and plan to go weekly in the beginning to get established and then down to every other week or whatever works. Last week, session 1 was very good. Liked the therapist and I had a good sense we could work together well. This week, session 2 not so good. She was 20 minutes late due to traffic and she had a migraine and was not present for the session. The next session is her make it or I am looking for someone else. I am not paying out of pocket to have someone not pay attention to me--I can find people to do that for free! Thanks anyways! Okay. I feel better. I just needed to get that off my chest. I am going back to Law and Order reruns and my glass of red wine. :) Hope your day was better than mine.
