what’s next?

There is nothing like the day that you interview for medical school. Then there is nothing like the day that you get into medical school. You survive first year and continue to second year. What is the next big thing that happens? Well it apparently happened today in my class. 3rd and 4th year ROTATIONS schedule. This can be exciting, frustrating, and a little intimidating at the same time. Login to your E-value account, click this tab, fill in this button, and hope that your schedule appears.  Since I am a Rural Medical Track student I had a little better idea of what my rotations schedule was going to look like than most of my classmates, but it was still made my heart flutter as I read my schedule on one little piece of paper that is my life in 4 week blocks, 2 mini-internships, 2 vacations, and step 2 board review all in 20 lines.

Tulsa, Enid, Clinton, OKC, Talihina, and wherever the wind may take me for my selectives and electives.

17 days until Spring Break

70 days until 2nd year is over

104 days until COMLEX 1

123 days until rotations.

We can do this. I can do this. “NO MORE classroom!” that’s the thought that will get me through.

thank you Mike, for supporting me through all of this.

This is what is exciting (for the moment) in a 2nd year medical students life. I am sure it won’t be very long until I am wondering what the next exciting moment of life will be. Guess we can plan a vacation now.

Parents send their LOVE with sweets

Parents always find amusing ways to say I love you. Valentine’s Days gifts from them are full of chocolate, sugar cookies, and of course a pedicure gift certificate.

Love shown with sweets:

There may or may not have been a few more cookies and a box of turtles. Good thing I have decided to give these things up for 40 days starting tomorrow. Guess all these sweets now belong to Mike, or I could see if I could eat all of them tonight….. That’s probably not a good idea!

My card! Nice and Sweet.

Mike’s card:

Got to love our parents.

celebration of life

We all love birthdays! Fun, friends, presents, and food! Its a time to celebrate the life that you are living with the people that you love. February is a very popular month for people that I know to be born in. People that I can think of off the top my head that are born in February:

February 6: Hannah Adams

February 12: Mason Littleton

February 14: Jacob Bernard, Owen Cheatham, , Owen Huck

February 16: Gloria Martz

February 17: Wayne Kiser, Kourtnie Mollet

February 22: Tim Busheyhead, Paulette Adams

February 23: Tracey Duroy

February 19: Darlene Duroy

February 28: Lindsey Bastemeyer

I am curious if I actually know someone that was born on everyday in February? I bet it can come close, what happens 9-10 months prior to February, that so many children end up being born in February? Happy birthday to everyone that I know and love that is a February baby, I just can’t get over how many birthday parties and events I have been to for people this month.

realized this today….

I realized this today: It has almost been three years since Mike and I got married, and I have procrastinated in actually ordering pictures or an album from our wedding photographer. I have the disc with all of the pictures on it, so I have some prints from the wedding, my parents, and in-laws have pictures too. We still have a huge credit that came with our package to order pictures or an album.

New goal before spring break: pick out what album and pictures I need to order over spring break. Have album or some beautiful photograph from the wedding for our 3rd anniversary.

Some of my favorites!

Best photographers:  Colorband PhotoArtisans, thank you Roy & Jamie for such great photographs and letting me be a procrastinator on ordering our wedding pictures.

MOM turning 50

1962: This was the year that my mother was born. On January 19th of this month she will be celebrating her birthday, the big 5-0! We had little celebration last week for her since she will be someplace a lot more fun and warm than Ponca City, OK.  We had a great turn out and I appreciate and I know that she appreciates everyone coming over to celebrate her birthday with her.

the moon.

Papa please get the moon for me. This was the book that Mike and I got my almost 2 year old cousin Spencer for Christmas. She had the greatest expression when she opened the present. “The MOON!” as she pointed at the cover. Then she realized that the book’s pages opened bigger than the book itself. Big ladders, a big full moon, a crescent moon, and a talking moon, what more could a little girl that loves the moon ask for! This might have been one of the best moments of my Christmas weekend. Even though it was just a little book, Spencer’s face and her little voice being so excited was one of the cutest and sweetest things ever.

somewhere

So I listen to lots of Pandora radio while studying or I have earplugs in my ears. Really anything that works to keep other peoples voices out and any other distracting noises. Well almost every day I hear this song:

This song makes me so happy. It makes me think of my wedding day, my husband, and our journey to somewhere over the rainbow together. This version of somewhere over the rainbow was played at our wedding with the slideshow that my father in law made for us. What a great song to put to your child and new daughter in laws wedding day, a day that we will remember for the rest of our lives. One day we will be somewhere over the rainbow together and for now we will just enjoy the journey to it.
