No rest for the wicked

No, no, I haven't fallen off the bloggy wagon. I've just had a very full few days. Claudia came down to visit this weekend and we had a blast. She got to hang out with a lot of my local friends. We had a very good time.

The highlights of our weekend (as I see them, in no particular order):
- good company and catching up
- fabulous dining out, and a lot of it, including trying several new-to-me places
- losing at 3-on-1 pool
- gluten free brownies made of awesomeness
- coffee
- Claud Meets the Village
- a new - and fabulous - vacuum to replace the one that died in the Unfortunate Catnip Mouse Incident of 2011
- breakfast with one of my favorite four year olds
- Cabaret. Or should I say, "cabaret."
- drunken Waffle House with the boys at 2am on a Tuesday.
- Claudia Learns Crochet
- so many moments of "now you see what I've been talking about, right?"

Fan-freaking-tastic.

I dropped her off at the airport tonight and then went to say goodbye to my aunt and uncle, the ones that moved here nine months before I did. They've been such an incredible source of support, and they're moving back to Chicago on Thursday. It's tough for me, to be honest, and all of that saying goodbye in such a short period of time while running on three hours' sleep is even a bit rougher. So, my bed is in my near future, even though I have SO many more things to say.

But I will share this piece of completely awesome news -

I PASSED MY BOARDS.

I am officially a fully-licensed, board-certified, ready-to-roll General Psychiatrist. Cannot beat that.

Sleep


I miss it. Which is why I PTFO'ed last night while thinking, "I should really post somethzzzz..."

Fortunately, Lucky, our new cat, cannot let a single 4:30 am go by unnoticed. Even without his bell (because he's figured out how to take his collar off in the past two days. Not okay. He's WAY too stealthy without it) he makes sure Maggie and I are awake to celebrate.

He's such a little pain in the ass at times. A sweet, adorable, totally lovable pain in the ass.

Seriously. Look at this face.

Alright. Enough is enough.

I miss blogging.

A LOT (LOTLOTLOT) has happened since I last wrote.

I took my General Adult Psychiatry Boards.

I decided to stay in North Carolina Chicago North Carolina Chicago North Carolina after graduation in July.

I went on job interviews. In Chicago.

I have a cat.

I turned 33.

I had really awful migraines like all the time. (They're better now, ever since...)

I gave up gluten.

I had a crisis of...something.

My car is perpetually flooded now.

I worked a lot.

I knitted stuff.

And, like, a million other things.

I meant to get back to blogging in September. Then, October. Then, you know, November is NaBloPoMo, which is the daily blog posting thing that really got this blog going in the first place. But, you know....it's been stressful here.

We'll talk more, though.

I think I'm back.
