Sometimes life is a blur. This past weekend was a blur. New car, family in town, crazy Sunday morning activities, Mother’s Day, and then it’s all done. Now the family is gone, there’s still lots to be done, and life is still moving… Sometimes I wish I could brake in mid-life…. but then I wouldn’t … [Read more…]


My whole family is coming up here in just a few days! I am so excited for my sister, brother-in-law and nephew to see this place that I have lived in for over 10 months! It will be nice to spend time with everyone! I do wish they could come up more often, but I … [Read more…]

one year

It’s been one year since internship placement. I can’t believe it! Now, it’s time for another class to go off! To be continued…

The MADNESS begins today. 32 games in 48 hours…then more games next weekend, and the week after that…oh how I love it! This day, every year, I am proud to be a Hoosier, and hail from the great basketball state… Never will I forget those roots. Who knew practically everyone would enjoy making their picks, … [Read more…]
