At long last…

Over two months without a post? Inexcusable!

But not inexplicable. I have been busy. COMPLETING MY FIRST YEAR! Finally. Jeez.

After more than a few tense moments, I can say with confidence that I will begin second year in August. I’m really excited. And in a couple of weeks, I’m starting my preceptorship with a family physician; I’m looking forward to that as well.

Since I took my last exam I’ve spent a lot of time hanging out with the fam. Zoe is sweeter than ever. This weekend she had her very first recital.

Adorable, yes? Our little ballerina. Forgive the early cutoff – I had to cheer loudly for my tiny dancer.

Doll Face

Does it get any better than this?

All of her grandparents (and everyone else in spirit!) cheered her on, showered her with post-performance flowers, and generally made a large fuss, which she loved. I must admit I wasn’t sure how the whole thing would go, given that we missed the dress rehearsal. But she was so excited to be on stage, and we were so proud of her – she just shined up there. I believe a star was born.

Other excitement has included time to straighten things around here. I still have plenty to do, of course. It’s a project. Speaking of straight… I also became free of my braces! I only had them for ten months, and they came off last Thursday. No real pictures yet, much to my sister’s dismay, though I did send her one… But I’m sure they’re coming. So far I’ve had to tell most people that they’re off, which makes me think I should have been less self-conscious all along – though I really like having straight teeth.

I also started Jillian Michaels’s 30 Day Shred. Krystal and I are on day 6, officially. I started a couple of days before to see how it was, then I took a day off to do Zumba. It’s kicking our asses; I feel stronger and better. Now to get my diet polished…

That hardly covers two months. So I’ll sum up the time before the last ten days or so: I was studying. Now to live it up during my last summer ever!
