i don't have a title for this one

because i'm not sure what it's about...

there's so much going on, yet none of it particularly stands out in my consciousness as a specific topic...

it is amazing the amount of rain we have had since moving in. i know there was a lot of rain before we moved here, but it's just kept on coming since we got here. cleansing, refreshing....yadayada

my stomach hasn't been right since we got here either... ;)

the boys are doing really well. my bil came by last night and worked with n on a computer drafting program to start plotting this kayak he wants n to help him build. it fascinates me, but i can't help but wonder if they're really going to do this... i don't know. it'll be interesting to watch the project develop as well as their relationship. watching them together, along with N, and i'm just so glad we moved out here.

N's family is coming up this weekend. he doesn't know it, but they're going to do some sort of surprise congratulations party for him. i'm sure it'll be sweet.

he's excited about starting residency. he's also nervous. but i think, from what i've seen, first year residents (aka interns) don't have that much responsibility. i mean, yes, it's more than i'd be ready to have. but comparatively, it's much less than the more experienced residents. i think they increase your responsibility as your experience increases. so he's only pulling call once next month, while fourth years are pulling lots of call... he'll be fine. this will be a good thing.

ok, i think that's about it for me...
peace out

home, sweet home (again)

now we're in the new home. it's a very comfortable space and we've been working hard to make it ours. i don't know if the climate change is getting to me or what, but today, i am sleepy and not in the mood to do much. and i'm going to be ok with that. it's been one of the rainiest june's in texas i'll blame it on that.

this is quite possibly the sweetest neighborhood i've ever lived in. i know back in our first home in our home town, one of our neighbor's brought something baked and another stopped by to invite us for coffee (or a beer, "if that was our taste"), but we've met all three of the neighbors in this culdesac, and two have brought baked goods and one we just met while she was cutting her grass. they were all so kind and sweet and, well, i hope i don't totally screw it up by being a social jerk... (crossing my fingers) :)

ok, just wanted to check in...
