Graduate School, School, Travel


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.

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

I much preferred it to Glasgow.  It wasn’t… Read More Scotland: Our Trip to Edinburgh and Learning New Things about Your Spouse

New Zealand, Travel, traveling


Alright, blog people – I need suggestions for things to do in Dunedin! Did you know that even though I live in New Zealand and even though my Google Maps is set for NZ settings, the first “Dunedin” that pops up when I do a search is “Dunedin, Florida”?  I’m sure that it’s much warmer… Read More Dunedin?

Chris is Back!

Joe and I have been home alone for the past several days while Chris traveled to… Virginia! Yes, we were just in the States but Chris headed back over there for work-related travels. We really missed him!  Having him gone made me realize a few things, probably the least-important of which was this: Chris is… Read More Chris is Back!
