Recent Events - Trudging Onward

Chase and I helped with a picnic sponsored by Chase's boss this weekend. She put Chase in charge of planning it, so he was very relieved that it was a fun event for all involved. Of course, there was way too much food, but everyone had a blast and, most importantly, Chase's boss was pleased.

Sunday we went to church. The sermon continued to follow the life of Joseph...stuck in a foreign land without a job in economic hard times trying to follow God's will. It was a good sermon and very applicable to our life now. Afterward I met Santana at the mall for pedicures. I chose a vibrant red, and she has the blue with flowers.

I also hit up New York and Company's sale on last season's styles (who cares about keeping up to date anyway!). I bought this shirt and one just like it in brown :) HOoray for new clothes! Now I have to wait for this season's styles to go out so I can stock up on the beautiful pink that just came in.

I finished my Therio rotation today. I didn't leave it with that satisfied feeling that comes from knowing you did your best. What can I say? Having my arm shoved up a cow's rectum up to the shoulder is just not my thing...neither is collecting semen using phantom mares and artificial vaginas, eletroejaculators, or digital manipulation. Nope...not fun at all. I'm glad to be finished with it. You know what my reproductive advice is for dogs and cats? SPAY and NEUTER your pets please! Needless to say, I put forth what effort I could muster despite the unappealing nature of the work to be done. I didn't do so well on the test either. Oh well...pretty sure I passed (or at least I feel that I should pass). Tomorrow I start my surgery rotation, and I'm really nervous about it. It's only for 6 weeks so I just have to jump in and get it done! I feel like it's all down hill from there. After surgery, I'll have community medicine (6 weeks), internal medicine (3 weeks), anesthesia (3 weeks), radiology (3 weeks), ophthalmology (3 weeks), and 3 weeks of a spay-neuter preceptorship. I'll have 9 weeks to do more preceptorships and job hunt!

Peace and Love, y'all
