After 10 incredible days touring the Midwest, Rob and I are back in NYC. There was a lot of driving, but even more love and fun with family and friends.
Now, we both need to shift focus. We negotiated a move while we were away. We’re moving into an apartment 4 doors down the hall in what will likely be the easiest move in NYC-dwelling history. It’s a much bigger apartment and is newly renovated (we were supposed to start the move tomorrow, but they’re still laying our new wood floors). It is going to be so nice to be able to spread out a bit, cook in an actual kitchen with normal-sized appliances, and add another desk.
And that extra desk will come in handy because Rob is starting school on Monday! I’ll keep busy each day with settling in and shuttling stuff down the hall so that we’re mostly settled and ready to ring in the start of college football season next weekend! Thursday - Saturday you can expect to find us posted up on the couch watching football.
I don’t start school again until after the holiday. I got my clinical assignments while I was home and I’m really excited. They all seem to be really great assignments and most of them are nice and close to home.
Being that I have the whole week off next week, I’m hoping to also get back on track with my training. I’ve been awful (seriously, I’m so ashamed) about training and I feel so unmotivated. Time to buckle down and get into a routine. School allows for a lot more out-of-school time because it’s not anywhere near as crazy as summer semester, so if I can get my shit together this weekend and next week I should be ok.
What has everyone been up to?
I woke up this morning mistakenly believing that it was Wednesday. Imagine my disappointment when my excitement over being only a day away from a short flight home came to a screeching halt. Seriously *record scratch*.
This trip home is to be my last hurrah with family and Michigan friends before school is in full swing. (I will likely have time in August to make a trip home, but my usual doubling up on trips home in the summer is becoming a thing of the past.) It’s the first time I’ve seen my whole family in a little over 5 months. Sadly, it will be a short one - only 3 full days - and I have so much to cram into those 3 short days, but I am up to the challenge.
I’ve already got a few things planned - trips to stores I can’t go to here, meals with friends, a probable 5k (part of the same event as my originally scheduled 25k), a mini engagement celebration/college roomie reunion, drinking craft beers on the deck with my family, acting ridiculous with my sisters, celebrating my momma and grandma. See, lots of love and happiness - I have plenty to be excited about.
