"You'd find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair," said Anne reproachfully. "People who haven't red hair don't know what trouble is."

Happy St. Paddy's Day!!!!!

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields and,

Until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Just in case you can't read it, my shirt says "looking for an irish boy" ....i've already found him :)

I live the glamourous life......

For all you jealous people, I must share how incredibly exciting my weekend is going to be......

4:45 am Drag my butt out of bed, shower
6:15 am Arrive at the hospital, run around seeing my patients, write notes, make it to the cafeteria before grand rounds, rounds, do my morning work, lunch, afternoon admissions, more afternoon admissions, answer 100 questions about patients that I've never seen, more admissions, call people back on the mommy pager, grab some subway, more admissions, more mommy calls......beautiful nap from 3:40 am till 5:30am...only interrupted once... then my pager starts the craziness again....

11:30 am....out the door of the hospital, yay before noon!!!!!
12:00 home, check my email ect before I hit the sack. Briefly see my hubby for about 10 minutes.
12:30-5:30 Sleep.....ahhh.......
5:30 wake up, watch tv in bed for a hour and force myself to get up.
7:00 Patrick got Chili's to go..yay!!!!!
8:30....drag my bootay to the gym to do some ecliptical action....(obviously i'm currently putting this off by writing this ridiculous post)
When I get back from working out.....Bedtime......

6:15.....Awake.....thank goodness for no prerounding on weekend days...the overnight call people have to see everybody....
8:00 arrive at the hospital.....grab breakfast and run up to rounds....
8:30- basically a carbon copy of Friday......looking forward to Monday afternoon after 2 pm when I get to sleep again......

Yes, this is why I'm in debt up to my eyeballs!!!!!!

Match day!

I can't believe that a year ago today i was opening my letter to inform me of where i would be spending the next three years of my life. Time flies when you're busy!!!!! About to open the envelope........

Match day roses from Patrick

Obviously we were both very happy!!!!

Thinking about today, it really makes me realize how God has me in his hands even when I forget that.... All the uncertainty and worry, and He placed me right where I fit into HIS plan. I'm so happy, even when I'm tired and stressed and overworked. I had my spring advisor conference today and it really made me realize how thankful I am that God knows where I'm going, even when i'm uncertain of the future and unsure of myself.

In other words, I'm now in the process of filling out my TEN PAGE application for my permanent license to practice medicine in South Carolina. I'm not going to even say how much that it will cost...other than it is a nice dinner away from 1000 buckaroos...thank goodness for free food at the hospital!!!!!!

January first, our city banned smoking in all restaurants, bars, ect. Finally!
Of course today I find out that a judge repealed the ban because he said it is unconstitutional....
So i'm all about personal freedom and all that jazz, but what about my freedom to go to a restaurant without being poisoned by my neighbors' nasty cigarette? People can smoke all they want in their home and car ( if they don't have children, don't get me started about that!) but they can't take an hour long break from it to enjoy dinner at a restaurant?
It is sad what drug addiction will do to people, and sadder still that people allow the addicts to impose their habit on others.

new hair cut!!!!

finally! I'm terrible about calling for an appointment and being able to actually go for one! And for the first time ever, I made another appointment for six weeks from now!

and he does laundry too!

Yes....this is my husband "swiffering" the bathroom last night at 10 pm....I'm not sure why he chose to do it at that time! He's probably embarassed for this to be revealed, but why not? He also does a good job cleaning the kitchen! Without him, the apartment would be a huge mess!!!!

wrong number!!!!

So...I admit it, I'm very lazy about changing my name on official stuff. We've been married nearly 10 months now, and other than my driver's license, SS card and credit card (plus all the official doctor stuff) most stuff is still in my maiden name. And it will probably stay that way for a while, because changing your name is a PAIN IN THE BUTT!!!!!!! However, it comes in handy sometimes, such as when telemarketers call for "mary t__" we just tell them that they're calling the wrong number!
