HO2-- WEEK 52

Service project with the youth from church (between rain showers!)
This week..
-- T, his mom, grandma, and grandpa got to go to the local arena football game and sit in a suite! T tells me that the team played well and ultimately won (I had to work so I just have to take his word for it!). We love watching any type of live sports - but especially football!
-- T also got to spend some time with my family as he worked in Omaha a few days this week. My beautiful mama had a birthday and one of my siblings sent her a new board game, Hive. He came home proclaiming we need to own it for ourselves - so it must be fun! We love the excuse of crashing with them whenever we are in town!
-- I stayed busy (-er) with work this week as there were a few more patients on labor and delivery than there has been the previous weeks. My Saturday call, in contrast, was pretty benign. You can never guess which shifts will be busier than others! I'm still roaming the hospital picking up whatever procedures are available for the remainder of the month. It's been a nice month to have the flexibility of creating my own schedule but I am starting to crave a little more structure. Next month, I'll rotate again with Cardiology.

HO2-- WEEK 51


This week..
-- we decided to spend a weekend glamping in our new house. We had originally planned a camping trip but it morphed into a few nights at our new place (still with half of us sleeping on air mattresses!) and a lot of good food. My parents first met us for dinner Friday night at The Odyssey and then we ate Saturday night at The Speakeasy. In between, we ate basically non-stop at our place between the entire cooler, mini fridge, and multiple shopping bags of food we brought. We also golfed 18 holes (well, the boys golfed and the girls drove the carts), played games, completed a few chores, and had a campfire in the backyard. It was a great staycation of sorts!
-- we would also like to publicly wish both our mothers a very happy Mother's Day! We were spoiled and able to spend some time with each of them today. Such a good day! T and I wouldn't be where we are today without our lovely mamas. We are the luckiest!

HO2-- WEEK 50


This week...
-- we bought some new appliances for our house during the Berkshire Hathaway sales at Nebraska Furniture Mart. You know, exciting things like a refrigerator and washer/dryer! It's definitely nice to save some$$$ but it was still a painful swipe.. At least I got to stop in and see my family! I visited NFM Thurday around noon and I was honestly there for a total of 10 minutes before I was done. Highly recommend  running over on a lunch hour next year if you want to avoid the crowds!
-- we made it to the golf course.. TWICE! It's been beautiful weather so I've been all-in to drive the cart while T golfs. Sometimes I even walk to the green and pull the flag. I'm super helpful lol. He's still spending the majority of the day studying for another licensing test he takes this week but he'll take some time off for the important things in life.. He's excited to get through this next test because then he can start to actually work while he studies for any future exams.

HO2-- WEEK 49



This week..
-- we went to an arena football game! We love any live sport but this was especially fun since we sprung for close seats at midfield. There were a couple tackles in to the wall right in front of us - thankfully we didn't end up with any football players in our lap like others did! Though T was a little disappointed he didn't catch a ball.. There isn't a large crowd at the games but between the over-enthusiastic quarterback and announcer, it was a great time. Plus, the event center is only like 2 minutes from our home. Can't beat that!
-- we've been pre-shopping for appliances we plan to snag during the Berkshire Hathaway sale next week at Nebraska Furniture Mart. Gotta love living in a smaller town and shopping for everything online! We are slowly but surely starting to furnish our new home!
