2 things I love...

                about Matt's job

(1) his schedule
Who has ever heard of a residency with the hours of 8 to 5 or 7 to 4 (depending on the rotation) Monday through Friday?  Those are his hours FOR REAL. No weekends.  No overnighters.  No crazy weeks where he has to work 100 hours.  We are lucky ducks.  I LOVE IT!!  He has the option to take call a few times a month from 5 to 10 pm.  But he gets paid extra for those shifts so he sort of seeks them out.  (It's not a cake walk though.  He tells me that radiology is more mentally demanding than internal medicine was for him because there's no time to zone out or wait around to round or anything like that so he still comes home tired.  Just a different kind of tired.  We'll take it.)

(2)  free food
He gets all the free food he wants in the physicians' lounge and he gets $100 worth of meal tickets every month for the main dining room.  He struggles to use up the $100 so he brings home dinner or little treats almost every night. Yum! Thanks hubbs!

And here's a little pic of Willa modeling her new Gator outfit from Auntie Moe.  ha-ha.  Thanks Moe!
