The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of events for John and me. It went something like this:
Sunday, Jan 27: Bought our pugalier, Chase. Isn't he so cute? Monday, Jan 28: Erika Interview for PA school at UTMB. Here is Chase celebrating with me after my interview.Tuesday, Jan 29: My boys took their first nap together.Friday, Feb 1: John's first endocrine test.
Sunday, Feb 3: Super Bowl Party with small group at our house. Here you see Kevin, Angie, and Abigail. Then, Josh and Christina and finally the girls. Monday, Feb 4: Erika accepted to UTMB PA school AND John's first paper accepted for publication to Applied and Environmental Microbiology. The paper's title is "Antibiotic resistance of enterococci in American bison (Bison bison) from a nature preserve compared to pastured cattle". Here I am opening the letter of acceptance. Tuesday, Feb 5: Fat Tuesday in Galveston. Chase celebrates with a necklace from the Children's Hospital Mardi Gras parade. Wednesday, Feb 6: John placed in the top 5 students on his endocrine test.
Friday, Feb 8: Decide to find Chase another home. He has been spending the weekend with various friends who are interested in adopting him. John and I decided we could not keep him between our schedules and the amount of attention he requires. Unfortunately, we thought we were going to be dog-people. We are not, but we will miss him anyway!
Sunday, Feb 10: Spring begins in Galveston with 70 degree weather all weekend. John and I sit on the beach in shorts and a tank top. To sum it up, while Kellie was in the Dominican Republic saving lives on a medical mission trip, John and I bought a dog, adopted him to someone else, discovered my future career, start John's career with a publication, hosted a party, celebrated Mardi Gras, continued school as usual, and spent some time at the beach.
