Coffee Talk

Long time now chat friends … how are you doing?  I thought we could catch up over some coffee this morning.


coffee talk


If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that I took a quick trip to Missouri last week.  Chris and I flew to Springfield on Wednesday and I had a job interview on Friday.  I interviewed for a position in Family Medicine with PRN Urgent Care on the side.  The interview went well and they are currently checking in with my references.  Hopefully a job offer is coming soon!  Keep your fingers crossed for me would you?  While in MO Chris and I also found a house to rent and placed a security deposit.  It’s brand new and absolutely perfect.  It checked all the boxes and we feel so fortunate to found a place to call home!  We also found the girls’ new school and saw friends.  Overall it was incredibly successful.


If we were having coffee I would also tell you that I am officially back in the Emergency Room.  I started my 8th and final rotation of PA school Monday with a 4PM-2AM shift in the ER.  I was immediately reminded why the ER is my happy place.  I got to help with a central line on our 2nd patient, drained a couple abscesses, admitted a handful of patients, and just feel incredibly fulfilled.  I can’t believe that I only have 4 weeks left of rotations.  Time has flown.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that we are potty training Bryn and it is going amazingly well.  After our adventures with Emmie we were nervous but B has been ready for MONTHS now.  My mother-in-law is here and having her has been a huge blessing.  Bryn has been going to school in panties and only has one accident a day.  My baby is growing up and I am not sure how my heart feels about it.


If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that I have been really consistent with getting my workouts in.  I had fallen off the wagon but have been back on now for a couple of weeks and feel better than ever.  It feels so good to get a good workout in and I am proud of myself for making it a priority.  My Jawbone though told me the other day I needed to take a nap since 2,000 of my steps came before the sun came up due to mid-shift and getting home at 3AM.  Ha.


If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that I have been pretty stressed out these last couple of weeks.  I have felt a lot of weight on my shoulders with everything that is currently on our plate.  Our trip to Missouri helped alleviate some of that burden but I still feel overwhelmed at times.  I am working hard to give it up to God and focus only on the things I have control over.  This is particularly challenging for someone who has anxiety and is pretty Type A.  Thank goodness for having such an incredible family who is very supportive!


I hope you have a fantastic Thursday!  I promise to try to keep in touch a bit more 😉
