I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

Oh the Joy of Family

It was wonderful to have Mom here for two weeks and Dad here for one.  And how fun for them to be here for my birthday.  We enjoyed many nice days of weather in the sixties and one day it was in the seventies.  We spent lots of time outdoors playing soccer, going to the park, enjoying a picnic lunch and more.  Here are a few pictures of the family.  And it is raining outside.  We were suppose to get strong winds and the possibility of a tornado.  Thankfully there was no tornado, but lots of rain.  But I love rainy days so staying in all day makes me happy.  Tim is gone all day.  He is taking an in-training anesthesia exam with his fellow classmates.  It is a good thing because it tests how well they are doing and if there is need for improvement.  But I have had no husband for the past three months.  He has been going into work at 5:30 and getting home anywhere from 4-7pm and then studying for 2-3 hours for this test.  So it has been a long three months.  So those of you who think being a doctor/being married to a doctor is all peaches and cream, and oh what a glorious life it is, it's not!!  People have no idea what hard work, long hours, debt, and determination they go through to get to the end.  My husband works long long hours and does not get off work when normal people do, takes care of very very sick people and prays he is doing the right thing, does not get time off whenever he wants, they dictate his life.   But with all this being said that is what we chose to do and we are going to finish with a smile! Anyway I will get off my soap box now, just had to add those little tidbits.  I wouldn't change anything though.  This time in med school and residency has grown us and we are in it together for the long haul.  Alrighty ending on a happy note, here are some pictures of my main squeeze and my fam!!  

Amelia loves holding Jonah.  She is going to be a cute little mother.  She holds hims, gives him his pacifier, takes him his blanket, talks to him (in her language).  So cute!

                                                                 Muzzie and Jonah

 Amelia will eat anything and everything, and Papa will feed her anything and everything.  So they both were happy!

 Sweet family times.  The Mosley crew came over for dinner and some cards on mom and dad's last night here.

And the last day mom and dad were here we spent the day at the park.  It was such a beautiful day.  There is a neat little walking trial that takes you through the tress and I thought this pictures of the three boys was so cute!

Jonah went down the slide for the first time.  Joshua is such a good big cousin and took him down the first couple of times.  Jonah first of all loves to be outside, and now I know when he can walk we will be spending lots of time on the play-set and outdoors!!

      I sometimes wonder about my writing. I think I get in a hurry and just start typing sometimes making no sense, but glad you get some humor out of it!! Ann said you will be in Billings in April! I will be home visiting so we are going to come by and say hi! It has been I think five years since I have seen you, wow! Laura keeps saying one of these days you two will meet I hope that is sooner than later! Anyway see you in April!
