Well, long time no blog. But it's been a wonderful time! My last final was over on Friday morning, and it was BY FAR the easiest exam I've ever taken in med school. Let me give you all a little taste:

What is one way to reduce your risk of malignant melanoma?
A-C: ridiculous choices like stay out in the sun all the time so you get enough vitamin D...

D: seek shade.

Wow, I'm glad I'm becoming a doctor to learn things like that.... I really shouldn't complain. There were harder questions than that, as cancer chemo drugs were also on this one, but there's really no reason that I should have done as well as I did seeing as I studied about a total of 8 hours for that exam, 10 tops. I got lucky. But I'll take it!

Then spring break started!!! It's been so nice to have time to myself without worrying aobut getting behind for the next exam. Over the weekend J and I went "away" to a hotel here in Denver, and it was a great time. I finally went to the Tattered Cover downtown. I can't believe I haven't been there before. I also read two giant fantasy books, finishing the books that are currently available in the Dresden Files series. I will miss them! There's a new one coming out within the month though, so there's more to look forward to!

On Sunday we came home to our giant doggy, who the in-laws took care of for the weekend. He always loves spending the weekend with Dween! Yesterday I hardly even got off the couch because I was reading all day. It's easy to forget how much you love to read when all you get a chance to read is text books. But it makes it so much more fun when you get that chance. When I finally did get off the couch I did the shopping for this week and got dinner going, can't believe that was my whole day. Worth it.

This will be a fun week, though. I have some plans to get the house cleaned up. In fact, now that I'm up and moving, it's time to get rid of some clothes that I haven't worn in ages. Since we got our new furniture, I still haven't taken the time to get my clothes situated into the new dresser. I'm excited to have some more space and to be able to find the clothes that I really want to wear underneath all that other junk. It's also going to be spring cleaning around here, floorboards, bathrooms, dusting, all that stuff. I definitely owe J that much, since he's pretty much been holding things together for me while I have been holding school together. Oh, and lots of walks with the big guy, he's earned it too. I hope everyone's weekend was as relaxing as mine, and (as a future doctor...it finally feels like I will be one) make sure you all take some of that time to yourself too, charged batteries just run better!
