I'll be stuck in the ER from 8a-8p on Thanksgiving day and Friday. Not much fun. But, up until this point, being in residency really hasn't affected my life outside of the hospital. I've yet to miss a birthday party, wedding/baby shower, or anything else I've wanted to do. So, I guess I can't complain.

Heath and I celebrated Thanksgiving tonight with a trip to Texas Roadhouse.

After gorging ourselves with soft, buttery rolls, we stopped by Sam's. We walked out with Guitar Hero :)

It's been a rough year - that goes without being said. But I do have so much to be thankful for. A good friend of mine (M) and I were emailing today about how the holidays are so difficult when you're suffering a loss (of something you've had or have yet to have). The last week has been tough for us both, with several acquaintances announcing pregnancies. M's sweet husband, B, reminded her that while it seems like these people have everything - they really don't. They have the one thing that we want, but we are so blessed in so many other ways. We made a promise to each other to focus on our many blessings tomorrow. I decided to start tonight.

01. My handsome, hard-working, stubborn husband. He has been my rock. I don't know why God chose me to be his wife, but I am so glad that he did. I couldn't imagine having more fun with anyone else.

02. My family. I have the most amazing parents, sister and in-laws I could ever ask for.

03. Our beautiful new house. I know it wasn't quite what I wanted, but we are blessed beyond belief to have this roof over our head.

04. My job. I have worked all my life to be doing what I'm doing right now. I know with every ounce of me that I'm doing what I was called to do. I work my butt off and don't get paid nearly enough for it, but I couldn't be happier.

This list will continue later. For now, I'll sign off - my husband is challenging me to a guitar hero face off. Bring it on!
