Way Behind

I don't think that words "way behind" even do justice to just how far behind I actually am.

Case in point? This is my first post since July 6th -- egads, I don't know how that happened!

It isn't, of course, that I had nothing to write about -- that's never the case, is it? It's simply that life is BUSY...same for me as for everyone else. Work, school, family, friends, all seems to get in the way.

But the low down on what I have been up to is this:
*3 weeks of full time medical school type stuff. Which was overwhelming (but helpful).

*Friends...or rather attempting to make sure that at least a few of them remember who I am. Which, if they do, won't be thanks to any ability to get together on my part. As expected, my schedule sucks.

*Work. People never stop having babies. Which means that I never stop having to go to work. Not that I am complaining (not really anyway) - a secure job is a nice thing to have!

* know, the really exciting things like dishes, laundry, and grocery shopping. Well, at least dishes and laundry - I actually really do like to go grocery shopping!

I am going to attempt to get some of my hum drum life adventures written down...I'm sure that you all just can't wait to hear about them...

America's Birthday Party

I LOVE the 4th of July.

Fireworks 5

Or, more specifically, I LOVE fireworks.


Fireworks 4

Unfortunately, this year I worked on the 4th of July. So, instead of seeing fireworks, I saw babies. LOTS of babies. Although we did have an excellent view of one of the local shows through some of our windows. I would have taken pictures, but I was busy -- we let all of the patients who were able come to the rooms with the view to watch the show.

And even one or two of the babies from the nursery.

Disney Fireworks - 06.01.09 (4 of 58)

After all, it's never too early to enjoy your first fireworks display.

Oh! Hi!

Oh! Hi!

I apparently have a serious memory problem, where I mean to post and then don't quite get to doing so. It's a terrible thing, really, seeing as how I am quite sure that all of you are just DYING to know what I've been up to.

Which, by the way, hasn't really been all that exciting.

My biggest news is that I have successfully written and defended my thesis, so now you can all feel free to call me Master. :) Graduation isn't for a few more weeks, but that certainly doesn't make me any less glad to be done. Unfortunately there was no real summer vacation fir me - we started classes to prepare fir medical school this past Monday. Which I assure has absolutely caused me to ask "what in the world was I thinking" on a daily basis.

As you can see, I am still a total insomniac being given frequent opportunities to catch up on my DVR, as it is after midnight and I am still awake. And warning: anyone who tells me that being awake so late gives me lots of time to study may very well be physically harmed.

I am, however, pleased to report that (assuming this post is viewable) I have figured out how to post from my phone. I know - now you are all hoping to be spared the daily live blogging of all my lectures. I promise, you will be...
