We decided to take a road trip this Spring Break to a place we had never been together - Albuquerque, NM. We did a lot of driving guided by the TomTom. Highlights from the trip included : hiking, visiting an Indian pueblo and seeing the white sand dunes (beautiful! - have you ever been?). And, of course I took way too many pics (the reason for three posts). We had a blast! We are glad that spring is in the air and cannot believe that the school year is in the home stretch.
Jordan went to visit our friend Elliot in Dallas last weekend while I was left to study at home but I did take a little break to go to the OU v. North Texas football game with my dad. I must admit that this was a bit of a conflict for my Razorback spirit but we had a good time. I missed being in the stands in Fayetteville and had to just watch the score scroll by in Norman. :(
I am starting my third week of medical school Monday and it has been a bit of a whirlwind! I got my first white coat, my first stethascope (and laughed because I didn't know what to do with it), had my first "pretend patient", have worked 4 afternoons on my cadaver, and am adjusting to the massive amount of material. This is a picture of all my books which I am sure that I will not have time to read entirely. All in all though I am having a blast. Sometimes it seems like a lot of book work but every day I get to do something or learn something that makes me think "wow! this is why i wanted to come to medical school". I haven't cooked in about a week and a half and so I am grateful for my sister, brother in law and husband who make sure it is on the table. I feel blessed to get to be here.
