Wow, the past two weeks have been crazy. I'm back from Vegas and I didn't lose any money! That might be because I didn't gamble any, but I still feel proud. :) Darrica and I had a great time. We met a lot of really awesome people from across the country. It was pretty cool to learn about all the other SAA organizations and steal ideas. :) Thankfully my house was still standing when I returned. Kody did a good job of taking care of Bailey and the house. He even put away his clean clothes! I know, I know...pinch me. It is so nice to be getting into a routine again. It was so hot in Vegas. They said it was about ten degrees above normal. The second day we were there I woke up early and went running along the strip. I loved seeing it without crowds. There were actually a lot of runners. I'm always surprised at how many are out that early...my kind of people!
One thing I realized while in Vegas is that I have become a complete and total wuss. Darrica and I went to the OSU alumni reception at the top of the Stratosphere hotel one evening. There are three different rides you can ride at the observation deck. Darrica kept trying to get me to go and I kept semi freaking out. That is so unlike me! I love rides, I love scaring myself, but something about a ride that dangles 104 stories over the ground made me stop and think. Plus, the roller caster that Grissom rides on CSI is gone. I would have been on that in a second! I didn't see anyone famous, but I did get my picture taken with a wax figure of Nicholas Cage...pretty close to the real thing! I have a lot of pictures to post so hopefully I'll get to that soon!
I hope everyone has a happy Halloween. Kody dressed up as Clark Kent today. Today was his last day on his pediatric rotation and they all were in costume. He went to Wal-Mart last night and purchased a boy's size 4 superman shirt. I'm not exactly sure what the though process was there, but he made it work. I had to help him pull it on because t was so tight and it barely covered his chest! It was quite a site to see. I accidentally already opened my Halloween candy and started to eat it. I always do that. What a surprise!
Core starts on Monday. Core is the most "intense" part of the rotations for medical students at OSU. They do one month of OB/GYN, one month of surgery and two months of internal medicine. Kody starts on OB/GYN. It is going to be really exciting, but he'll be very busy. Hopefully during this time he'll get a better idea of what he wants to do. He's going to get to help deliver babies! Can you believe that? Seriously, I can't imagine doing that. Wish us luck, and by us I really mean Kody, but you can wish me luck too...I'll take whatever I can get!
