Oh hey there Monday. Fancy seeing you already. I have missed you guys and want to catch up. What better way than by sharing a cup of coffee this morning?
If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that I am running on fumes. I work full-time in the clinic, study for boards and night, and wrangle my two crazy kiddos. My brain is getting exhausted and I am ready for a break. I would tell you that there are just never enough hours in the day to get it all done and that I am counting down to some time off. 3 weeks to go.
If we were having coffee I would tell you how amazing my sweet girls are. Emmalyne still chews on her blanket when she goes to bed which is pretty funny. What is funnier is that she prefers her blanket to be old and crusty and not fresh and clean. In fact she sniffs it and doesn’t appreciate it when I put it through the wash.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that one of my closest friends from college spontaneously stopped by our house with his new wife last night on their way back to North Carolina. It’s amazing how rekindling an old friendship fills your soul with joy. We picked up right where we left off and I am thankful to have him back in my life. He’s trying to swing me over to loving ortho so I can work for him one day when he finishes his fellowship. He has a lot of work to do to get that to happen.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am pretty homesick. It’s hard living across the country from your family and it’s even harder with the holidays approaching. I long for the day that our family can be back together and I can join in on the the festivities with my parents, brothers, and sisters. I look forward to my kids running and laughing with their cousins. This is one of the most challenging parts of military life.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that primary care is not what I expected. I always thought I would likely end up in primary care upon graduation and I am realizing that it is likely not for me. My heart belongs to the Emergency Room.
I hope your Monday is short and your day full of joy! If we were having coffee what would you tell ME?
