I just took my last exam of didactic year! yay! I then marched up to my professor's office and turned in our research proposal! Now, I hope I don't cry on my first day of rotations. I am to call the doctor I am with at 6:00 the morning of the first day and ask which hospital to meet him at! I am excited that I (we) have made it to this point. I feel like I know SO much, yet at the same time I feel that I have SO much more to learn.

This past weekend we flew to El Paso to visit Lance's grandmother. We painted the garage doors and some columns on the front of her house so she can sell her house. Lance said he had many good memories in her house and was sad that she was selling it. We ate lots of tamales, chicos tacos, enchiladas, and Lance had lots of menudo. We got back late on Sunday and picked Maggie up. We missed Maggie while we were gone.

Tomorrow we are heading to Longview. My mom had surgery and is recovering so I am going to see if there is anything she needs. Also, we hope to visit my grandparents. I don't know how crazy things will be clinical year and I don't know the next time we will be able to see any of our grandparents.

Lance and I have been reflecting alot lately and have come to the conclusion that we are very proud of the life we are building together. I can think of a better person to be my partner through life!

summer fun

This past weekend we went to Tomball to swim and attend a graduation party for some friends of Lances. Sunday we went to church and the headed to Galveston to look at the sandcastles. They were neat. I think I could get used to the summer schedule for PA school. Before I know it I will be freaking out on rotations.

This weekend we are flying to El Paso to visit Lance's grandma.
I have an exam Friday before we leave. Hopefully that goes well.
I am trying to finish this research before we leave because the presentation and paper are due when we get back. I am having trouble filling out the IRB form in order for UTMB to approve us for research. It is alot of explaining yourself!

This morning I won a $50 off $100 purchase at Old Navy. I then refreshed the page so I could look for the coupon I really wanted, the $75 off $100 purchase. Little did I know that refreshing the page caused me to lose the coupon. By the time I could go back for the coupon I just lost, they were all gone!! Old Navy has this game you play every week to try and win these coupons. People stayed up all night waiting for the game to come up, and I just happened to be on the page at the time it opened this morning. I can't believe I had the coveted coupon and lost it that easily. Oh well, I guess half of the fun is in the hunt!
