No Rest for the Wicked
So, even though I don't have to have a post today for the A to Z Challenge, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite posts for those of you new to my blog site.
I have been blogging since 08/06/2007 when I was heading east from Minnesota to Buffalo. My first blog was entitled "Do They Have Squirrels in Buffalo?" because I had developed quite the squirrel army on the property of our rental near White Bear Lake, and I was going to miss the daily goings-on of my little furry extended family.
That blog chronicled the first year of my Emergency Medicine residency and the adjustments I had to go through switching from a surgically-trained mind to an emergency medicine trained mind. I finally got married to the man of my dreams in that year, and we went on a belated honeymoon. I wrote about the different rotations I was having to do, and how some could be more painful than others. Having a chance to cut... in surgery the theme was: a chance to cut is a chance to heal, and I do enjoy doing things more than talking about doing things.
The year went by, and I started gaining more responsibility as I started my second year. Also, I started getting more snarky in my commentary, especially while working the children's hospital. I started doing shifts with the Mercy Flight crew and wrote about my first helicopter ride.
I ended with a final post on 10/26/2008.
Next week, I'll post my favorites from my second blog: Buffalo Squirrels Won't You Come Out Tonight?
