So Rollie came through!! I've been trying to get a family doctor for about 6 months now - not only have I NEVER had one - save growing up, I mean since getting married I've never had one - So thats what, 4 1/2 years since I graduated, and I've never had a Doctor?
Unfortunately there is an EXTREME shortage of family Doctors in PG, and NONE are taking on new patients - there has been hundreds of complaints and letters sent to the newspaper, one from me as well!
I swear I've cold-called every Drs office in PG by now. I'd even, as absolutely horrible as it is, started watching the obits for people to thank the Drs so I could try them. The referal I got from the walk-in clinic didn't pan out, but why should it when hundreds of other people are trying to get a Doctor as well?
I am so fortunate that my mother in law is a nurse, she'd talked to a Dr like a year ago, and he said he'd take me on. So she reminded him yesterday that he'd said that, and he was still willing to take me on, even though hes not "officially" taking patients. So I called his office, his secretary was a bit leery of my story, but I bet people have tried something like that before "Oh ya I talked to him, he said it was ok and he'd take me on"
So I have a Drs appointment in 3 weeks - sure thats a long wait, but I'm just so darn happy to finally HAVE a family Dr! Now I can get my flippin PCOS addressed and the necessary meds, and we can start thinkin babies!
We've been married 4 1/2 years now, and once everything works out with the house, (cuz everything WILL work out this time, it HAS to! Karma owes us lol) so its about time, I think mom and dad are getting anxious for grandbabies, since Tina's relationship is too early for young 'uns and Lisa's nowhere near a relationship, its up to me and Rob!! lol.
Life is good!

What's New, Pussycat?

So , since that last post, we almost put an offer one one house, then found out it had (expensive) plumbing issues. So stayed away from that one. Then we put an offer on another, it looked a house inspection done on it, like we always do. Which was SO good that we did, it turned out that the foundation was so bad, the house could collapse at any minute. =/ So needless to say we RAN from that one.
We've looked at more, and looked at more..went to see one on Saturday, and absolutely fell in love; looked like it could have been another "the one" (we've found a couple perfect ones but something always happpens/turns out to be ungood) So the next day, Sunday, we went to look at it again online and..the listing was gone! So we called our realtor, Denis, and he did some sleuthing. He found out the listing had just expired, and the seller WILL be listing it again. Whew! So we'll have to jump on that as soon as he relists ; since it will show it as a "new listing" (even tho its an old listing just being put up a second time) so people might take notice this time around.

In other news, I'm at a temporary posting for 7 weeks, and tomorrow is the end of week 4. More than halfway done, woot! Don't get me wrong, its not like Im absolutely miserable, but its not one of my favoriter programs either. And the shifts suck--I alternate, a week of day shifts, then a week of evning shifts; day shifts start at 630 am (yuckew way too early) and evening shifts are 230-1030, so unless you get up at 630, you dont get a full day to yourself before work.

I'm responsible for taking care of 3 guys with mental disabilities in this program, which I find kind of funny. I can run a household sooo efficiently at work, yet come home and be like "Ug housework" Kind of makes sense, if you do 3 loads of laundry at work, you dont want to come home and do more..but some days I really have to force myself to get it done. =/

Well I'd better head to bed, tomorrow's my friday, but that doesnt change the fact that I still have to get up at six freaking thirty. Blah.
