MS2!

08.18.10 | Comment?

In the style of Zoe at 18-months-old, so far I like it MS2. After three full days I can say that the classes are interesting, and I’m excited to be continuing with a brighter attitude than I began last year. Actually last year on day one of my personal groundhog day, I was a black hole; this year I’m the sun, and mark my words, I will honor at least one class.

We’re off to a pretty good start on the home front, though as always, our sleep schedule needs to improve. The good news is that I’m sleeping at all, which is more than I can say for the past few months. The entire summer I rarely slept a full night, and when I did, the quality was poor. I reasoned that despite being physically exhausted on occasion, and working out intensely most days, my brain was floating on its back. Compared to the previous nine months of being pounded by the waves of med school’s inundation, there was not much mental exercise going on, for which I do not apologize nor do I regret in the least. Last night, however, it was a short night but solid sleep, and it was glorious. I’m planning to crawl in bed even earlier tonight.

Last week we prepared for a successful year by taming the apartment. We…moved…everything. The office is usable and organized. Things in the living room have a place. We donated many things and are shuffling around less unnecessary junk. Certainly there is more to do, but this was a major goal of the summer, and we finished it just in time to host another couple for dinner. They and Zoe became fast friends.

I have more pictures of the cruise to post to flickr. Words cannot describe the beauty and the fun. We went to the Bahamas (Princess Cays), Ocho Rios in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. It was a fantastic trip, and it has inspired Joel and me to add vacation savings into the budget and spending more time, perhaps someday again living, near the ocean. Zoe asks daily if I remember the big boat, and when are we getting back on it? I thoroughly enjoyed being at sea and getting to spend some quality time with the family for a whole week. We returned to an excited Chief Licky who had developed kennel cough despite his vaccination. He is doing well, and now that it’s subsiding I can say that minus the phlegm, a dog coughing is one of the more bizarrely amusing experiences I’ve witnessed in awhile.

Blogging/writing is built into my schedule as relaxing/sanity time, so stay tuned, and if I go too long without a post, I’ve probably gone mad, so contact me and remind me to take some time out. 🙂
