Rocky's Day Out

Today I took Rocky to the farmer's market with me. He was great! I love having (at least) one good dog that I can bring in public without worrying he might eat a kid or pull me into a vendor's tent.

I have to say I'm enjoying the fall. It's the best time of year for farmer's market produce, the weather is nice and cool but still warm enough to enjoy it, and for me it just seems to be the most optimistic time of year. This is only fueled by the best news I've gotten all year - I am going to do my surgery rotation at Rose Medical Center.

Why is this great news? Because at Rose your life doesn't suck. That's why. Students work one weekend a month instead of every weekend. Students get meal tickets! Students get free parking! Students (so far) don't get yelled at! I've been so dreading this rotation (which starts in the middle of October), and now I don't feel nearly as scared. So far third year has shaped up to be better than expected. I hope I don't jinx myself for saying that!

For now, I am just enjoying my time in private practice pediatrics. Everyone has been so nice, and I enjoy working with kids and families. Right now, life is good!
