Monday Madness 4.4.16

Happy Monday and happy first week full week of April!

I wish I could say it was looking and feeling like spring here in Michigan, but it snowed on Saturday! Ughhhhh!!! We had a surge of warm weather towards the beginning of March and I was really hoping it would stay. The five day forecast doesn't look so hot either.

Times like these make me wish I lived somewhere with better weather. I think it would improve quality of life.

Nick and I watched The Walk this weekend.

I'm not a fan of heights and this movie started getting to me! My hands were all clammy and my socks were soaked by the end of it.

Overall, the movie was just okay. I was a really weird role for Joseph Gordon-Leavitt. The main character is pretty eccentric and I found him annoying. Plus, I saw a documentary about it before and the documentary was much more interesting.

Last week I started looking for a transfer between jobs in my company. I still love what I do, but I'm ready to spread my wings and learn a new specialty or go into internal med or family medicine. Plus, my commute is horrible. I can get to work in 35 minutes if there is no traffic (which since I work 8-5 never happens #rushhour). So, it ends up being about 40 minutes in the morning and at least 45 coming home (it took me an hour to get home on Thursday). My main goal is to have a shorter drive and work a little bit closer to home. I had an interview with a pulmonary office and I'm looking at opportunities in  cardiovascular and OB/GYN. Wish me luck!


  1. I do not envy that weather, mainly because we had a taste of it yesterday, and will get more of it this week...all after having 80 degrees on Friday. What gives???

  2. We are in the process of getting 6 inches of snow right now. Ready for spring!

  3. i don't think i could watch that movie lol. when movies always start with like an aerial shot or whatever, it makes my stomach drop. no thanks. i feel you on the weather, it's not as cold here, but we did have much warmer weather a few weeks ago so i got excited and thought the cold was gone for good. no such luck!

  4. Omg that gif would so be me watching that movie!! I love joseph gordon levitt but I definitely would be biting my nails watching it!! I can't believe the weather lately! I'm in NY and we had spring like days the snow is back in April!?!?! Ahh! =)

  5. Yikes! I've been seeing all of my family in law's (can I even say that?) Michigander Facebook posts... it is a bit of a bummer. On plus side, enjoy another hot cocoa and make a big pot of soup and watch movies :) It was like that last year over here so I definitely felt your pain.

  6. We had snow on Saturday too and some this morning! So crazy! I hope you get a transfer and an easier commute soon!

  7. Boooo to more snow, it's April and spring Mother Nature! What you said about moving somewhere warmer for a better quality of life really hit home with me. I grew up in Connecticut, and moved to Florida about 6 years ago and it was hands down the best decision I ever made. Outdoor living year round is priceless, we love dining outside year round, riding our bikes, outdoor movies, food truck nights, water sports, etc.. If you ever have any questions about relocating definitely let me know ;-)
