moving right along

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Now that the loose ends have been tied up, I’m excited to say the macnamania family is moving.  Husby got an excellent resident position match with the University of Wisconsin Madison. And where the match decrees, so shall we go. So Husby, Cheeks McGee, and I will spend the next month and a half enjoying […]

I’m thankful for the wonderful friends husby (and me by proxy) have made during med school. And the chance to eat fancy cheese and laugh with many of them tonight.

Seven Things: That I could have blogged about in September, but didn’t

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Folks, I don’t know why I haven’t written anything here in over a month. I do know that I spend 3 of those weekends traveling to MN, so that may have had something to do with it. But I have Monday’s off, it’s not like I don’t have enough time for this. Anywho. Since I […]

Seven Things: to do to pass the time while husby is on nights

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Husby just started his third year of med school, which means he’s finally seeing real patients in the real hospital and getting to do real things (like holding legs during labor and delivery. Was that TMI? oops.) And all of this real gets to happen at night for the next week. Which means we won’t […]
