The times they are a'changing

Things are turning over at work. We'll be getting 2 new people soon. I'm nervous but excited. Emphasis on nervous. I know that this will all be for the better in the end. It always is...right?

As promised

Our first picture is from the Bellagio gardens. Tim has a knack for taking pictures with his arm stuck out in front of us.This was the view from the front of the hotel. I highly recommend Paris and would stay there again.
The gorgeous family shot in the Bellagio lobby. Note my dad's new movie star teeth. Not bad for a coal miner from middle England.

Today has been an interesting day and I've spent some time browsing the internet. I'm toying with the idea of starting a journal. While I know the blog is supposed to be a form of journal writing, I also think that we all have some things that we have to say but only in private. This brings me to my next point. Everyone should visit postsecret This format was used in the video for the song "dirty little secret" where people held up cards in front of their face that said things they had always wanted to say. This had got me thinking. What would my postcard say? In fact, what would yours?

The Red Piano

Tim and I are back from Vegas. What a great weekend. We went to see Elton John on Friday night and then saw Phantom of the Opera on Satuday night. In between, we shopped at the Forum and walked our asses off. My dogs are barking! =) Unfortunately, we didn't come away with any big winnings but we did get to play all our favorite machines. Pictures to follow...

We saw 69 patients today. I did 2 re-exams and 4 new patient exams. Yay for us...but now I'm pooped. pooped!

Much to our delight, TNT is now in hi def on comcast. Subsequently, they are showing movies around the clock. Right now Castaway is on. I have never seen this movie in full but I like the few bits I have seen. Tim just asked me if I thought i would go crazy on an island by myself. I actually think I wouldn't. I really enjoy being alone. i don't know if it stems from me being an only child but I would think so. The only thing I might have problems with is building the fire. Although, I do have a lot of motivation so I think I would keep trying until something got lit. =)
I do think it is slightly alarming that he talks to a volleyball covered in blood though. Oh well, to each their own I guess.

Today I sat outside in the sun for awhile and read. There is nothing better than reading on a lazy afternoon. I could use some new books though as I have re-read most of my books so many times at this point. Perhaps a trip to barnes and noble is due. Actually, not a bad idea.....

The Emerald City

So I spent the day in Seattle at a chiropractic conference yesterday. We left at 6:30 AM and were home by 10:00. It was a really worthwhile trip athough my body is paying for it right now. It's 9:04 and Tim and I are going to bed soon, I think. Anyhoo, back to the conference. It was really motivational and got me excited for the remainder of the year. We are doing a big promotion at the end of the year with charities and the food bank so I'm really looking forward to that. Plus, we are going to decorate the office for fall and those of you who have been to my apt know that I love decorating for seasons! I did take my camera yesterday, but I didn't take any pictures. We didn't have enough time to go to Pike Place Market but we did go to the downtown mall and walk around to kill time. I really enjoyed it but the weather was the pits!
However, I just bough a new equestrian riding jacket (as if I ride) from LL Bean which is super warm. I took my Burbs scarf as well and I was sweating =) (B, all I need now is shoes! =)) All in all, I think that it was a good time and totally worth it.

Tim and i had a nice morning. He went and got Starbucks for me as I was dragging. His parents came over for a bit to watch the 49ers game, which of course was very sad. I had to leave though as my, my mum and my aunt went to San Fran to Pier 39 to see "Menopause, The Musical". I know it sounds a bit odd but it was great. It was four women telling stories about their lives through popular music with the lyrics changed. I highly recommend you all take your moms to see it.

Speaking of moms, mine has been worried about me for the last week. I had a really draining work week and felt like crap by Friday. I also felt like I was complaining all the time, but it was just that I had so much on my mind that had to get out or else I would have gone crazy. Plus, I got all kinds of crazy hormones going on right now, if you know what I mean. =) So I'm feeling more positive now and I think this week will be a good one. I am trying to stay positive and practic separating what happens at the office from home. All doctors go through a transition period when they learn to separate themselves from their patients and office dramas. I think I just wasn't as good at it last week. Oh well, God gave us Mondays to make a fresh start.
