If life hands you lemons.......well you know the rest!

Somedays I do find it hard to find the lemonade out of the lemons thrown this way but every day is a new day so I start all over again.  I absolutley hate the daily grind, I hate not having enough money every month to cover things that come up.  I thought when I went through two yrs of Radiology school that I would at least have a leg up considering I was such a young mom but it seems that is not the case.  I am making the same amount that I was making ten yrs ago which is hard to understand.  The medical field you would think would be the place to be!  Nope!!!  I haven't seen a regular old xray job in the paper in about 3 yrs now!  I was without a job for two months almost 3 yrs ago and honestly I was desperate to find ANYTHING!  Sooooo I took a phlebotomist job/xray and make less than I did when I went back to work in 2000. Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful to have a job but it would be great if I felt that I was making what I was worth and what I do!  It does help, however, that I feel at home here and that the Dr's I work for do care about us as a whole.  What is extremely hard to get past sometimes is how long I've been in this field and still at a place that I get approved for reduced lunches for my girls!  Sad.......

So now that I have vented my frustration on how under paid I feel I am, I am going to just change things up and go with how thankful I am for certain things in my life.
1. I am sooo thankful that I was lucky enough to have 3 healthy wonderful children to raise.
2.  I am thankful that I learned early its ok to fail as long as you try again and do a better job at it! 
3. Thankful for my wonderful Fiance who is soooo supportive and loves my kids even when they always haven't been nice to him!
4.  Thankful for a job.
5.  Thankful that I really haven't had a lot of trouble with any of my kids legal or otherwise!
6.  Thankful that I'm not a Nana yet!
I could go on like this forever but because Friday's suck at work and everyone thinks they need to see a Dr on Fridays I probably should sign off!!!!  Have a fantabulous Friday!
