CittiKitty 101

CittiKitty 101

Ok, folks. Not much is going on with me lately (first cardiopulm exam next week…gearing up to enter “study mode” for the next 10 days, laundry skills slowly failing again…same old same old), however, Callie has some updates. We began the CittiKitty experience on October 1st. We spent the first week with the CittiKitty tray … Continue reading

I2 Tofurkey and Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! Yesterday was full of food and lazing around as is required, but also provided ample opportunity to reflect on what is wonderful and awesome in our lives. For me, that’s easy: I am healthy and pretty good looking (especially with my new short hair cut!), smart (enough to be doing well in med … Continue reading

Decisions!

Decisions!

There seems to be a few decisions for me to make these days. The first one was: how can we continue with the CittiKitty potty training for Callie in a way that is happiest for all of us? She had a couple accidents when we first moved to the second ring. I don’t want her … Continue reading

White Dress, White Coat

September 11, 2012 **First off, I just want to say that I felt reflective today and decided to write. I realized a few minutes in that it was September 11th, a day that always seems to inspire a bit of pause for me. Eleven years ago I was almost a month into my 8th grade … Continue reading

Tiramisu Cheesecake Cupcakes!

I don’t actually have time for a post right now about my life (everything is wonderful, wedding is in 4 weeks, marathon was a success, I have an amazing temporary job, we’re moving to a great apartment soon, my new baby sister is perfect, I have some VERY exciting med school news, etc etc), but … Continue reading

Marathon Training Begins!

Marathon Training Begins!

Well, I did my first workout session for the April marathon. This picture is me running the Boston Marathon in 2010 and yes, I tweeted the run. Today’s workout was…unpleasant. I ran three miles at a little slower than my goal pace of 9 minutes/mile. I also did some basic weights, too, and sit-ups. It … Continue reading

New Year’s Resolutions 2012

New Year’s Resolutions 2012

So I haven’t formally made any new year’s resolutions for about three or four years now, but I’m in such a time of transition these days that it seems prudent. Plus I’m just trying to get my health, both mental and physical back on track after a crazy near two year stint in Africa. It’s … Continue reading
