November Notes, Day 1


It's been a while since I have written. (Has it really been since July!?!?)  Given that it's National Blog Posting Month, at least the traditional month of November, I thought I would start blogging again.  I don't have a planned theme this time, just thought I would write about whatever was topmost in my head that day.
Today I thought I would start by writing a little bit about myself for those that don't know me, haven't follow me in the past, or who might have forgotten since they joined me for the last blogging event... I forget sometimes a little myself these days:
I work as an Emergency physician in both rural Northern California and metropolitan Sacramento.  I like working as an ED doc on the front lines of medicine.  I hate to admit that sometimes someone's worse day is my best day, because, let's be honest, we train for emergencies.  That's what keeps our juices flowing, and some days it's the only thing that keeps us going back for more... that hope that something "exciting" will come in.
Work allows me to pursue my other interests, like travel... and cycling... and painting... and quilting... and filling my home with setting hens and squirrels... 
We bought a house up in Northern California in 2011, and for the last 4 years we've been slowly remodeling it.  Let's just say our "five year plan" is now our "ten year plan" but it's been a lot of fun, and I've learned a lot about construction and can confidently talk about such things as "header beams" and "rough openings" and "3-0/5-0 windows."
Anyway, I plan to write about random things,  and I hope you'll come along for the ride... it should be interesting.

I can't believe how time has flown since you moved from Buffalo. The times you must have spent on the road going to work and returning. What about all the rest you do above! You are super woman!
I'm looking forward to reading about your days in this month.

Has it really since July? I has been since July for me too! I just totally lost any desire to write a blog post or even to read other blogs. Maybe this November will kick start me into writing at least once a month.
