It all begins again...

The beginning of a new month is upon us... a month that brings many wonderful things that I look forward to every year. Spring, Easter, and my birthday. However, this year with Jon's residency schedule -- a new month also means a new rotation. And this could possibly be the worst rotation yet. UGH! The dreaded GEN MED 2... back to 90-hour work weeks and 30-hour call days every 4th day. This month has been looming over our heads for the entire year. So, it all begins again.

Today was actually the first day of this new rotation and Jon is on-call tonight. Back to single mom-hood. I really do think I'm getting better at this though. I got sick a few days ago and it was all I could do to try to get better before things got crazy again. I was dreading today so much because I didn't feel like I would have the energy to get through it, especially since I had been so spoiled by Jon's schedule in March. But I woke up today feeling energized and ready to tackle the day, even though I was battling a pounding sinus headache, runny nose, and a sore throat. It was a surprisingly good day. I think I'm just feeling much more confident in my mommy abilities these days and it seems to be making a huge difference. (altogethernow... KNOCK ON WOOD!)

Anyway, that doesn't mean that I haven't already started counting down the days until this month is over and we can finally start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as this evil year of internship finally comes to a close. (June 17th is the day... Hallelujah! Mark it on your calendars!)

Yesterday Jon actually got a bonus day off. (Well he was supposed to be in a child-psych unit but they didn't have any patients, so he gave them his pager # and came home.) We were able to spend most of the afternoon in the park. It was a rejuvenating day and so fun for Noah to spend some quality time with daddy before he soon forgets who he is...


here's some pics:


I know, they're adorable...

Anyway, wish us luck!

I'm also counting down the days for this month. . . then little miss P will be 2 months old and everything gets easier after 2 months right? :) Good luck and let me know when you're headed to the park.
