D.C.

I was in Washington, D.C. last week for my school’s required on-campus clinicals.  From Monday – Thursday night, I was attending lectures, demonstrating my skills as a practitioner, performing assessments, learning in-office procedures and suturing, and generally stuffing my head with knowledge.  It was a great, albeit stressful, couple of days where I was able… Read More D.C.

Advent, Holidays

Advent

The word ‘advent’ means “coming”.  In this season of the year, we focus on the meaning of the coming of the Son of God into the world.  And the spirit of our celebration should be the spirit in which he came.  And the spirit of that coming is summed up in Luke 19:10: “The Son… Read More Advent

Post-Thanksgiving and Pre-Christmas

What a great Thanksgiving weekend.  We celebrated here at home in the afternoon and that evening, I went to the hospice house while Chris and the boys had dessert with neighbors.  We’ve had boatloads of turkey leftovers, some of which have already been transformed into turkey salad sandwiches, turkey broth, and turkey tetrazzini. The next… Read More Post-Thanksgiving and Pre-Christmas

August 2018

August has been a full month.  It was rewarding for me to have some time between semesters to relax, see family, spend time with friends, and do nothing.  Joe has enjoyed going to summer camp and we’ve taken a family trip to Washington, DC as well as a trip with me and the boys to… Read More August 2018

Happy Birthday, Joe

Two weeks ago, our oldest child turned 6 years old.  I know that everyone says “time flies”, but I truly didn’t realize how swiftly time zooms by until I had children.  Suddenly, I found myself measuring the days and years based on my child and how he’s grown.  And children grow fast. They acquire language… Read More Happy Birthday, Joe

2 Years

I’ve thought about updating this blog several times over the last 2 years.  Obviously, I didn’t.  When, after several months of thinking I put thought to action and attempted to log in, I found that I couldn’t.  After several sessions with the hosting service’s support desk, we finally ironed out the problem, and access was… Read More 2 Years

Pollen

I’ve come to have a real appreciation for pollen since moving to Virginia.  Or perhaps more of a grudging respect.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the beautiful trees and flowers and plants we have here.  We live in the woods and I couldn’t be happier.  But I had no idea that pollen… Read More Pollen

December 2014

It’s been such a great month, this past December. I turned 34 years old. Chris and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. We had Christmas in our own home for the first time.  Such fun! It’s been a busy month, too. I’ve been back to work now for a little over 5 weeks, and I’m… Read More December 2014

Monday Post

I see articles like this and I’m reminded once again of one of the reasons why we moved back to the USA. We definitely got a little flak from people, both in-person and online, for choosing to move out of New Zealand, in part, because of the high cost of living.  Phrases such as, “You… Read More Monday Post

Thankful

I’m so thankful – I was offered (and I accepted) a new job last Thursday evening.  I’m excited about this job for so many reasons – the opportunity to focus on prevention and primary medicine, being able to help and serve my patients, and working for a good company – but mostly, I’m in awe… Read More Thankful
