You get...

the most INTERESTING mail when you are an OB-GYN.

Some "personal lubricant" just sent samples to my house with a hysterical introductory letter. DH & I both got a good laugh out of the letter before pitching it.

Random thoughts

We have a shit-ton of books. 9 bookcases plus the built-in wall of shelves in our den. 90% of what we move will end up being books. Most of the rest will be kitchen stuff.  ;)

A fever of 102.5 makes you feel like shit.

Whoever thought it was a good idea to have a railing on the deck was a freaking idiot. I've been painting it for awhile and still have too many slats to go.

It felt so wrong throwing away the study guides to the USMLE parts 1, 2, and 3. But really, do I need it?

I have got to get around to tossing my notes from my master's degree classes. They are currently sitting in my closet.

Only one more week until M-day. Ugh.

And I should NOT have spent so much time reading the Song of Ice and Fire series...5000+ pages!

5:15 Last night

Pregnant caller. "I've had a head cold for a week."

Me. "And..."

"I need antibiotics."

"Any other symptoms?"

"Just a really runny nose."

"Have you tried a decongestant? Or saline spray?"

"No. I KNOW that I'm sick & I need an antibiotic."

"I won't call in an antibiotic for anyone that I have not examined."

"Fine. I have an appointment tomorrow with MY doctor. She'll give it to me." Insert snotty, entitled tone here.

Ray Bradbury. Thank you for the hours of pleasure you gave me.

This is what drugs will do to you

If you show up on L&D high as a kite in the wee hours of the morning, we will ask for a urine sample - for both a UA (since you are complaining of contractions) and a tox screen. (and not surprisingly, the second test lit up lit a tree at Christmas)

I will say though, it works better when you remove the undies first before peeing into the cup. :D But don't worry, we have the ugly-ass maternity panties you can have to go home in.
