What a week!
Yesterday was Match Day (the day when all of the 4th year medical students find out where they are going to do their residency) and three of my best friends matched into their top choices!!! I am so excited for them. At that point in the year, I just wanted SO BADLY to be done with being a medical student and just get on with being a real doctor already. Now I’m like…remember the days when I was a medical student and had someone telling me to leave early every day because I was so not important for anything…that was nice.
Remy and I ended up briefly joining them and a whole bunch of other people from our MD-PhD program for dinner, and I was so impressed with how well behaved Remy was. She actually ate all of her food (well….all of MY food) and the only things that ended up on the floor were her dinner roll and all of her crayons. And she only wanted to breastfeed three times instead of her usual once every five minutes. So…success?? I’ll take it. I also left as soon as I could see she was starting to get a little bit antsy, so I’m sure that contributed.
We are gearing up for a low-key weekend over here. It’s Mike’s birthday on Sunday so I’m sure we’ll do a little something to celebrate…maybe go out to dinner, though I’m not sure I want to test Remy’s patience in a restaurant twice in one weekend, so we’ll see. What are you all up to? Any St. Patrick’s Day plans??
Enjoy the weekend and happy eating!
