When babies won't sleep...

I've spent the last couple of hours entertaining my son because for some reason he doesn't feel like going to sleep at his bedtime tonight. I even tried to just let him cry it out for a little bit, but after about 10 minutes who goes in to rescue him, his daddy of course. And yet I'm the one being accused all the time of being a softy that can't let him cry, ha!

I am almost officially done with residency now. In three short weeks I will be officially graduated, and expect to be unleashed out into the real world to finally put all my training and knowledge to real use! And earn a real paycheck to boot! YAY!

Loi and I celebrated our 6th year wedding anniversary recently. Well, sort of. Saturday June 21st we went out car shopping, and I drove home my pretty 2008 Acura MDX as my new mommy-mobile. I pretty much assumed it was Loi's anniversary/graduation gift to me since he conceded to getting the car much more easily then I had thought he would. So Sunday morning June 22nd I presented my darling husband with his gift and was met with the blankest most confused expression ever. "What's this for?" he asked, and then his look of befuzzlement was quickly replaced by one of horror as he realized what day it was. Yes, he FORGOT our anniversary. After mumbling some lame excuse about he has been so busy with pursuing his career changes and how he was so sorry he forgot, let's just say he better be damn glad there was a shiny new car sitting in the driveway or it could very well have been the last anniversary he would ever need to worry about remembering.

Speaking of new cars, she is currently sitting in the body shop. Yes, some moron who was apparently incapable of driving between the lines swerved into my lane and clipped the side of my car. Luckily the driver behind me who saw the whole thing was kind enough to be a witness for me, because then the idiot tried to file a claim with my insurance and said that I had been the one to drift into his lane. There's something to be said about karma, and I hope the lying scum bag gets his due. I guess I should just be consoled by the fact that he was found at fault, and soon my car will be fixed as good as new and I'll get her back soon enough. Still, poo-poo on the dummy who hit me.

Other news, I decided to join Weight Watchers online because I am absolutely determined to lose my pregnancy weight, and hopefully get back down to pre-residency size! The last 3 years have not been waist line friendly to say the least. It's been 2 weeks, I've lost 4 pounds so far. 19 more to go, wish me luck!
