No Fooling Around It's Medical Mondays!

I am not one for playing April Fool's Day pranks, and especially not when it falls on the first Monday of the month:-)

To our regular participants: thanks for coming back we love you!

To new participants, and those visiting from our co-hosts blogs: thanks for coming, we hope you find value in our hop and will make the first Monday of the month a recurring event on your calendar to meet up with other wonderful, amazing, talented, and interesting bloggers who have something in common with you. Medicine.

Feel free to look around while you are here. If you want a recap to get you up to speed on my blog I suggest these two posts Protracted Medical Training Spouse Burnout and Is My Husband Cheating on Me?   Let's get started!

  1. Stopping by for medical Monday. This is my first one!

  2. Just a response to your earlier post. I will say this....the more money you make, the more money you spend. I remember when my Doc Hubby finished his residency and he said to me "You don't have to buy the no name pickles anymore" obviously meaning I could splurge when I did my grocery shopping.

    But, I do think that a budget is always a good idea! I still buy the no-name pickles...

    Thanks for co-hosting Jane:)

  3. Stopping by from Medical Monday, thanks for having us.

  4. Hi Jane! :)

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! And as to yours...I think it's so lovely that he wanted to treat you & I'm sure he's gotten it out of his system :D We're just going to be starting residency and while it's nice to be getting paid, we're already preparing to live on a budget.

    Enjoy all your new stuff! ;)

  5. Happy Medical Mondays! Glad to link up again.

  6. Thanks so much for letting me link up with you. I always look forward to Medical Monday!

  7. Hi Jane! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I can definitely relate to your last two posts. Our story is a bit different as I married my DrH when he was done fellowship; however, until then I'd been on my own and living a pretty frugal lifestyle. I still ended up furnishing a lot of our house with stuff from Kijiji and Freecycle because I'm so not used to having money to spend... although I pushed for a brand-new couch this year so I guess I'm making progress. :-)

  8. Happy April Fool's Day and MM!

    Love linking up again!
