Even though I’ve been back at the blog more often lately, I’m still having a hard time getting here multiple times per week. With summer weather already here in Seattle, it’s hard to say “no” to the outside in leui of this computer. Plus, the house projects won’t just do themselves.
I never want to paint again.
But I have also had a few things going on like my trip to Montana. I try to go every year in the spring/early summer. With everything that has gone on this year so far, I needed a “vacation”. Three days to Montana isn’t exactly a vacation in my book, but it was nice to see my parents and I love visiting there. So I’ll take what I can get.
In fact, I have only taken one vacation day in the last 6 and half months. And that was so I could study for my board exam. Now that wasn’t a vacation.
Speaking of that pesky exam, you know the one I took MARCH 9th…I get the results any day now. Any day. Any day now…
Not like they tell us a specific day or anything like “June 10th” (that would be too nice). Instead they post on the website that the results will be ready in June. I can’t help but let it take up some of my daily brain power. Ugh. It must be part of the torture. First a 7 hour exam. Then wait three months for the results. Then anxiously think about the results every day in June.
I check my email about 23542347 times a day. <—- That’s gotta be a reason why I haven’t been blogging as much. Chronic email checking.
What were talking about?
Montana. Far from physical therapy land and into to the land of big trucks, big sky and people who love to wave.
My no-dairy diet went up in flames when my parents bought me a dairy queen cake. #cantsayno
My parents house in general is where all diets go to die. But #yolo…or whatever.
I have also spent an excessive amount of time on craigslist as we are trying to finally finish furnishing our house. Which is expensive. Enter=Craigslist.
Except craigslist is anything but a walk in the park. Shopping on craigslist is somewhere between a recreation intramural sports league and a part time job.
To get the best stuff you have to check often, every day (or even more than once a day) and out compete the competition. Get there faster and offer $5 more.
Fortunately, which the email checking habit in full pursuit, I’ve also added in a daily CL scan for the items that we need to finish the house.
To finish off another completely random post, I leave you with some pictures from my trip to Montana including one of the cutest golden retrievers EVER.
Back soon, promise.
