Scattered bits:

Finals week for winter quarter. Passed my practical exam last night, which was the one I was most worried about. 2 more exams to go. Competed my first clinical rotation with an A grade, and a comment that they'd welcome me back for an externship (woo!).

Took a break from studying this past weekend to put mulch down and prune the shurbbery/trees in the dog yard, with "help" from Riley ("so many sticks!"), Jodah ("you're really here to throw my Frisbee, right?"), Melstav and oldest kidlet ("you didn't really mean to put all the dog toys in this bin, right? Surely I should scatter them back around the yard"). I probably won't get grass really growing in this yard until I fence off another area for the dogs to use for a couple months, but the mud should be tamped down a bit, anyway. Maybe less will make it into my house. A woman can hope.

Found Jodah's ID tag in the mud in the back yard (not even in the dog yard), exactly 2 days after I'd ordered a replacement tag. So at least now I'll have a backup, and he won't have to wear the foster-dog tag again.

Wow!! congrats on all the school successes! you're smokin this thing. Awesome.

Also, yard work. So MUCH WORK, but I find it centering, often... ya know until something goes wrong then I just wanna give it all up. Sighs.

Haa. yard work is hit and miss for me, but this weekend was centering and satisfying. Mowing? Mowing I could just leave. Ugh. I've been oogling plans for raised beds though, mmm. I probably won't have time to really put a garden in this year, but maybe next!

Thanks! I wish there was more of a break between semesters, but at least after this week I'll have a couple weeks breather where there won't be as much homework and stress. :-)

Thank you. It's a bit reassuring that I might be suited to this career-change, you know? Here's hoping, anyway. It's been a long time since I was excited about learning new stuff.

Wow, sounds like the school work is going great!

Dogs just aren't much help in the garden... ;-)

Haha. I tried to get Riley to drag the sticks to the brush pile with me, but she had other plans for them.

That is really good news about school! So smart!

Goodluck with your mud

The mud was pretty epic when the snow melted. I'm hoping it won't be too bad with today's rain....
