I've spent the last week at work trying to restrain myself from either banging my head against something hard or stabbing myself in the eye with something sharp.
This rotation is just not my speed.
I haven't felt this bored (and belittled) since my Dermatology rotation in medical school.
At least I have an amazing weekend planned. I can't wait to share it with you. Especially since it may be my last weekend of intern year. As in the very last time I have two days in a row off. At least until my next vacation at the end of June.
I decided the best way to keep my hands away from sharp instruments is to join in with Karen and Jennee in seeing how I'm doing on my resolutions. It's the end of a week, and nearly the end of a month, so it works on all fronts.
My 2010 To-Do List
-Lose 5 pounds by May 1st, then another 5 pounds by September 1st.
I've been working out one hour on Wii Fit Plus nearly every day. At first, I was doing really well, but all my munching during board study and eating out during vacation set me back. But I'm down 2 pounds since the first of the year. Even if it means I'm hungry a great deal of the time.
-Be able to touch my toes.
Still can't quite do this. But I'm focusing on Yoga poses on Wii Fit that work on flexibility. And I'm getting closer. I can do it if I "bounce" just a little. But that doesn't count.
-Get my passport.
-Date night with Hubster once a month.
I'm going to guess that catching up on The Office every night doesn't really count. And the family ski trip doesn't really count either. And neither will our family activity tonight. So I'm going with no. We did not have a date night this month.
-Pass the boards the first time.
Boards have been taken. Still waiting to see if I passed.
-Use my crock pot (at least) once a month.
Done for January. I made barbeque chicken. It was very good.
-Finish moving in.
Haven't touched a single box in the garage. But Hubster finally took the suitcases (that we used when we moved here!) out of his closet and put them in the basement. So we've made a small step in that regard.
-Finish moving into this blog.
I've been moving in slowly. I figured out how to do a three column format, which made me do a celebration happy dance in our office. I found a background I really love. (Don't you just love the look of weathered wood?) I'm slowly adding side bar items. I'm working on it. I really want a blog make over. Maybe for my birthday?
So, overall, no big successes. But enough small successes that I feel I'm doing okay. Even if everytime I look outside and there is still snow, I just want to curl up under a blanket with a bag of marshmallows and not come back out until it is warm.
And if you have any tried and true crock pot recipes that might tempt a picky eater who doesn't eat red foods, please send them my direction.
