Playing with the kiddos

Last night I watched my friend Holly's 2 kids while she did some shopping!
We had such a good time....listening to all the things an almost 3 year old says can really make you laugh!

Are these not 2 of the cutest kids you've ever seen? It was such fun getting to spend some time with them while their mom got to get out for a while!!

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!

Well....I have some exciting news. I have been recruited to join an OBGYN practice here in the Metroplex. Its a great office and a wonderful opportunity for me and something I am really excited about!!! I spent a month working there during a previous rotation and LOVED it so I know alot about the clinic and what its all about. I still have a few months before I actually graduate so I won't be working there until the 1st of the year, but it looks like this clinic will be where I start my clinical career!! Exciting!!

Right now we are in the middle of negotiating salary and benefits and all that good stuff, so I haven't signed the contract yet, but I anticipate everything will work out great!!
They called me today and things are moving in the right direction!! Keep me in your prayers!

Working Out is such WORK!!!

Over the past few weeks I've really tried to jump back into working out daily again. I've been lucky over the years to remain a pretty constant weight (give or take 5 lbs) but I know that won't last forever and more than anything I just want to remain healthy (unlike so many of the patients I take care of everyday).

The problem with all of this is that I've realized I really hate working out....mainly because I really hate sweating!! Sweating just makes you feel icky and yucky!! I dread coming home and having to put on my workout clothes and go to the gym or go out to run but somehow when I'm done I feel so much better! Working out is just one of those things I put on the list of things to do for the day but I'm trying to make it something I really look forward to. I'm hoping to soon become one of those annoying people who just can't have a good day if they haven't worked out....we'll see, I still have a way to go!!
