She's Home

The little world traveler is home! :)
Michelle has been off in China but she came home this afternoon. It sounds like she had a really fun, if not exhausting time. She said she really liked it there (except there was no blue sky - always smoggy in the city) and she would like to go back on a study abroad course or something to that effect. She always talks about joining the peace corp., so maybe she will be there again.

I am just glad that she is safe and sound here at home. It is always a little weird, sort of unsettling when your young ones are off traveling without you. I guess the mom thing doesn't go away even as they get older. Michelle certainly loves to travel and I know there will be many more times when she is not home...but I think for tonight I will just enjoy her company.

Now she can feed all of her animals again! And maybe if they find her luggage we can see what she bought for all of us who were left here at home...

Blog Slacker

Yes - I have been a blog slacker...but for good reason...

First of all - work has been kicking our butts lately. It has been so crazy busy - I so wanted to cry on Saturday when I was in charge. There were patients everywhere. I was on the desk, I was already watching 2 moms in labor when 3 more showed up. I just looked at the secretary and asked her to find me any help, any where that she could. Then...I had a mom on the C/S table with twins - with her spinal already in....when a different patient's baby had a huge decel and we needed to crash her (emergent C/S) - Now how do you run 2 OR's at the same time with only 1 anesthesiologist??? UGH!!! But somehow it all worked out. All I can say is that I'm feeling it. I think I'm aging years by the day! I ache like an old lady!!
And our family life has been very busy...
Michelle had Prom - the last one for our us - and she actually borrowed a dress this time! She looked so pretty and had a great time.

Then we had graduation - Michelle's that is. I can hardly believe they are all out of school (well except for college). Lily has spent the night and I've been lucky enough to watch her every Thursday (except for the day when my car blew a fuel pump). I still think she is the cutest little girl around. And she sure loves that puppy of ours!
Erika is home safe from her adventure in Canada...she got the woods...on a the dark...and we got a call from a stranger that found her belongings...After many phone calls with the Biola coach and campus security and other runners we had a happy ending to her escapade as she found her way back to her room mates house. But Coach Z and I decided that she owes us big time for scaring us that way!! So see - life has just been a little busy for our family. I'm hoping it calms down soon!
