On Call....

I was so excited for the three day weekend, then realized I am on call. At least it is home call! I am just fielding phone calls from people who don't know how to care for themselves at home. Seriously do people not know that you don't need to see a doctor for the common cold?? I guess I shouldn't let that little pearl of wisdom out since my future income depends on the idiocy of the common man....

I guess I am a bit bitter....

2AM, can't sleep

It's 2 AM and I can't sleep.

I was so sick last week that I actually took two days off work. Now I am just plagued with a cough that strikes whenever I assume a supine position. Torture. Pure Torture.

I am so tired, but can't stop coughing. All the hot tea with honey, cough syrup, decongestants, Vicks vapor rub, and even a vaporizer has not helped. I even tried putting Vick's on my feet...yes that right, feet. Some family of ours swears it helps. It made my feet feel nice and warm, but still coughed!

So now I am up, on the computer.

With the new year coming up, I will look back at last years Resolutions and see how they went...

Work Goals:
-Become member of AAFP and read the entire journal monthly
-Renew ACLS
-Read that ER book
On these I got 2/3! I didn't finish the entire ER book, but did read a good portion of it!

-Date Night at least once per month
-Find regular baby sitter for Jordy for date night
-Take Jordy to playgroup whenever I am off work
-Menu planning so that we don't waste so much food
Joe and I aren't doing very well on date night. Jordy started daycare, and I take him there everyday. Since my mom moved close to us, we have a regular sitter. The menu planning is always a work in progress...

-Do Monthly Budget & meet it!
-Start saving for Jordy for college
-Increase savings for retirement
-Save “Enough” for down payment for house in Florida (not sure how much "enough" is)
3/4 here!! I haven't started saving for Jordy's school, but honestly don't have the money to spare right now. I will open an account and start slowly adding...

Personal Enrichment
-Find masters program
-Start Masters program
-Stop Swearing!

I actually decided not to start a masters program. I am so sick of school and want to focus on other things now, like family!

-Get Body Fat Measured
-Work out 3x per week
-Give up the fantasy that I will ever look like Giselle or Heidi Klum & love myself anyways!

Working out is always a challenge... I did get back to pre-prego weight! I am happy with what I look like now, and am doing things to maintain it!

-Call my friends and family regularly
Doing well on this one, although I use the computer more- easier to do when you have screaming children in the house!

I will have to come up with the 2010 list!
