What a Week...

I don't even want to count up all the hours David put in at the hospital this past week. It was crazy! Let's just say that on Thursday I dropped him off at 5:30am and didn't pick him up until 7pm. We'd be doing pretty well if he were getting paid for all of those working hours, right?

Ethan and I have been resting at the apartment most of the week. I filled out several job applications (yes, I'm on the search again), but I don't know if I'll hear anything. My timing isn't so great right now. Everybody just got rid of all their Holiday help. I'm not getting enough hours doing what I'm currently doing and that's why I'm on the lookout again. I REALLY want something that can guarantee more hours. Maybe what I need is just a second job and not a replacement. Who knows.... Only time will tell.

I got to hang out with my dear friend, Rachel, on Tuesday and today. Did I mention that we hung out last weekend too? We have so much fun together. I'm so thankful I have such a good friend here that's so wonderful. I could go on and on about why she's so awesome, but I'll save that for another post.

Rachel and I hit the jack-pot at Old Navy today. They had all of their clearance marked an additional 50% off. I bought several tanks for only $1.49 each. They'll be fantastic to wear when I'm working out/running and to bed. I don't have any warm weather pajamas, so I think I'll be sleeping in some of these this summer. I also purchased some running shorts this week (Crazy, I know!!!). I haven't worn shorts in about 12 years. I'm pretty nervous, but they are only to wear while running. It's just gonna be too hot out there this summer to wear long pants. Hopefully my oddly shaped white legs won't scare anyone too badly.

It's been a pretty emotional week with lots of ups and downs for me. I always get really down when I return to STL after a nice time with family and friends in OKC. It takes me a while to get out of my funk and function normally again. I've been crawling out of my hermit shell a bit this past week (thanks to Rachel). Some days are good and some days just aren't. Being a Wife of a Medical Student is hard...... really hard. I'm ready for the part of this journey to be over. Graduation and Residency is lookin' really good right now. Hopefully we'll get the Residency we're praying for.

I understand your homesickness. I had it SO badly while we were living in Colorado. I don't know how many times I broke down in tears.
Finally Brent said "ok, let's go back to KS!" And here we are.

I wish it would be that simple for us to move back. This Med School Matching thing is gonna be a pain in the butt. We don't really get to decide where we end up next. = (
