Spring Update

As we head into May I thought it might be a good idea to update the site and let everyone know what we’ve been up to. Brian is usually the one that does this but I will try to do the best I can.

Brian has been really busy with work but doing well. He was promoted this spring and is enjoying the perks and the challenges of his new position. When he is home, he relaxes by working out in the yard. He has found that landscaping, planting, weeding and playing with landscape timbers is very therapeutic. As a result our yard is looking very beautiful and I encourage him as much as possible. I’m happy to cheer him on from the window because I don’t share his enthusiasm for gardening. I do appreciate all his hard work.

This week I will be finishing my first year of nursing school and I can’t wait for it to be over so I can relax for 2 seconds. I’ll have a little break before starting again for the summer. I’ve learned so much and have observed many interesting procedures including a total hip replacement surgery and a cesarean section. Nursing school has been very stressful but I love what I’m learning and hope and pray to be a good registered nurse one day.

Our little dog Jack is still not so little. He has been on a diet since January and we believe he has lost a little weight but he’s still overweight. He is definitely not as young as he used to be and we’re afraid his weight might lead to other health problems. He’s our baby and we love him and want him to be around for as long as possible!

During the break Brian and I will be headed to Florida for some fun and relaxation. It will be good to get away from people places and things around here and just relax for a while. We are definitely due for a change of scenery even if it’s just for a week. Hopefully, we’ll come back rejuvenated and ready to tackle the summer.

I think that’s all I have for now. We’ll try not to stay away so long.
