HO3-- WEEK 3

Of course we had to take them to our favorite local burger joint!
This weekend we...
-- had a family reunion with T's Grandma's family! In past years, we've traveled to Chadron, NE (which was alway a great time) but we were grateful for the convenience of having it in Grand Island this time! Although we nearly melted in the heat & humidity Friday night - the remainder of the weekend was much more tolerable. T's highlight was probably getting to play his new favorite lawn game - Spike Ball. Unfortunately I was in & out of the fun because I was on-call Saturday. The absolute highlight of the weekend is having T's family from Texas in town! Today we were able to take them out for burgers and then to visit our new house. They're the best.

HO3-- WEEK 2

The lunch crew at Della Costa!
This week...
-- I had some errands to do in Omaha and I was extremely fortunate to be able to meet many of my favorite people for a delicious lunch! We ate at Della Costa in Midtown (which is a fabulous restaurant and even more fun when the meal is shared with people who appreciate great food!) It made the unexpected car repair slightly less painful..
-- well, month, I am working on the Nephrology service (we're all about the kidneys!). It is an interesting rotation because most of the illnesses are things we primary care docs treat - but now I get to learn about them in even more detail. Also, I've been able to tag along to the dialysis unit and gain a little more insight. We're spoiled in Grand Island because all the docs are also great people - but this physician is exceptional. With the 12-month-until-graduation countdown in place, I am anxious to learn anything/everything I can!

HO3-- WEEK 1


This week..
-- we spent the Fourth of July at our new house in Holdrege. We caught the local legion baseball game the night before and stayed for the fireworks after. We were impressed at the size of the show! It was a beautiful night and the sun was setting behind us so the weather was beautiful. Plus! Two-dollar rootbeer floats! It was a great night!
-- we thought it would be the last 'camp-out' at the new house before we could quit bringing a cooler back-and-forth. This coming Tuesday we were supposed to have our appliances delivered but NE Mart called yesterday to report that only our dryer is in-stock (we bought everything the first week of May!). Thankfully, we don't truly need the appliances yet but I guess we still have to pack in & out for the time being! I think we will ask them to just defer the dryer delivery until the rest is in-stock..

HO2-- FINAL WEEK

Dreaming about furnishing the new house..
This week..
--  T is finally home from Florida! He thoroughly enjoyed his training and is motivated to get to work tomorrow! He keeps reminiscing about speakers he liked, books he wants to purchase, and even challenged me to take a personality test to see how our results compare. He will now work mostly in Kearney so he's currently replanning his daily routine (gym in GI then commute to Kearney? Or commute to Kearney and hit the gym there?). We also need to remember to package leftovers into convenient containers instead of just leaving them in the fridge for him to snag on his lunch break. Little things!
-- was my last week of cardiology - for the month AND for my training! It's wild to see the older class of residents graduate and welcome a new set of residents this coming week. It's also wild to be on the final countdown and working to maximize my last 12 months! I am so grateful to know where I'll be practicing next so I can tailor my training.
-- we will be spending the 4th of July at the new house! We don't have any significant plans (other than a few chores..) but being there is still such a treat! We are also beginning to day-dream about furnishing at least the first floor so I'll be perusing Pinterest and Houzz when I have free time.
