Blogging obviously hasn't been my thing lately. I always mean to update my blog, then I realize how far behind I am on downloaded pictures, not to mention laundry and grocery shopping. So it has been sadly neglected. But I'm determined to do better, at least until I get caught up. Here's a preview of what's to come in future posts:
Utah! The conclusion of our 10 week trip in the west
And of course Halloween!Besides these more exciting highlights, we have just been busy around here. Paul spent the month of September in El Paso, and the month of October in Dallas, both times doing a radiology rotation at the hospital there. So I had plenty of alone time. Gratefully we were able to see him a lot on the weekends. Now he is traveling all over the country doing residency interviews. I feel like a travel agent/secretary. My spare time is spent buying plane tickets, reserving hotel rooms, coordinating interview details, and preparing a travel itinerary for him. For example, he is currently driving to Temple, Texas for an interview tomorrow. He'll drive home tomorrow (Saturday) night, catch a flight Sunday morning for Richmond, VA, and interview in Richmond on Monday. Immediately after the interview, he has to go to the airport to catch a flight to Fargo, ND, where he'll interview on Tuesday. Again, as soon as that interview is over, he flies to Wichita, KS for an interview on Wednesday. That evening he'll fly home to Lubbock. But Thursday morning he has to put in a 1/2 day shift in the ER, before leaving that afternoon to drive to El Paso for an interview on Friday. And that concludes the madness for the week. I think we have about 3 or 4 weeks like that scheduled, with a different town every day, usually a different state. Although all the planning is stressful, it's exciting that we are getting closer to finding out where we'll be living once he graduates. Hurrah!
