California had a different plan...

Well, I thought I would be posting everyday to my poorly mistreated blog while I was in California!! I remembered as soon as I stepped foot off the plane, my husbands little apartment is too far away from the router!! So we don't get internet in his house. Therefore I am in the landlady's house while my clothes are washing typing this post. Maybe I can get over here a few more times.
There has been a lot that has happened since I left Mississippi. I stayed with my grandmother in Reno my first few days out west. She had a few neck vertebra fused and was needing some TLC while her husband had to go out of town for a few days. Trae came up and we had a wonderful few days of resting. The three days before Christmas Eve, we spent in Tahoe!! It was great. We didn't ski, but we rested and cooked and played in the snow! Trae and I had a wonderful Christmas. We exchanged presents on Christmas Eve because he had to work Christmas Day. So it was just me and Bella on Christmas Day. My plan was to spend some time with him at the ER during the day, but the ER was pretty hopping so I couldn't stay. That day started his 5 days in a row stretch, which today is the last of. I am so glad he doesn't have to work for the next 8 days! I am not sure what we will do, but I don't really care either.
My Alabama Crimson Tide is playing in the National Championship game on January 7. I am soo incredibly excited! I have never seen them play for a championship. I have also found out that a guy in my OT class actually personally knows my favorite Bama player, Terrence Cody! I really want to meet him one day soon! As soon at it was official Bama was going to be playing in Pasadena for the Championship, I tried to find out how I could get to the game. I figured since I would already be in California, this would be fairly easy. I layed in bed one night trying to figure out logistics of this trip only to wake up tired and upset that I still wouldn't be able to go. Oh well. I will be able to watch it with my sweetheart and that is enough for me! Well that is all for now!! But I am so glad to be back online!!!

Wait, I have a blog?!

In case you were wondering if I had dropped off the face of the planet, have no fear, I was only in the last few weeks of the hardest semester I am supposed to have in grad school! That's all! I am now done with gross anatomy. I don't have to dissect and study a dead body any more. And I must say, as much of an incredible learning experience it was and how grateful I am to have had the opportunity, I am glad it is over. I have been following my favorite other blogs, but have not had the time, energy, or interesting material to post anything new on my own blog. I have really been enjoying Aunt Spicy's travel posts. I really really really want to go to the UK and her latest London post made me want to take a few weeks off school and just fly there the moment I saw her pictures.
I am so excited for the upcoming month off from school I have. I have a lot planned, like finishing the quilt I started for my birthday this PAST February! I know, please don't be too disappointed. I will be going to California for the month on Monday. I must see my Megan get married first!!!
So after I get to California, regular blog posts will resume. Please forgive my neglect but know I have been watching all of you, missing my daily fill of blog wonderfulness!
