Great Weekend

I must say this weekend was fabulous. Weather in NC was GORGEOUS! sunny and not too cold. Because of my ER schedule I got 6 days off this week and I spent them all with my boys. Meet my boys:

They are pretty freakin' cute if you ask me. One has a bit of a poopie problem and the other one takes up too much space in the bed. I'll let you decide which one is which! I spent a lot of time doing domestic duties this weekend. Oddly enough, I enjoyed it! I'm sure my mom probably wants to die hearing me say that since she knows after 28 years of cleaning and cooking it's not so fantastic. But seriously, for the girl who NEVER gets to play house and feel like a wife this weekend really made me feel wifely!

Thursday I drove down from VA after a fun filled night in the ER stapling heads and sewing up hands! Good times. I got home before Chris, so I got to greet him when he came home from work...a first!

Friday, Chris worked and I did house work and cleaned poop from our potty training puppy! Needless to say after about 4 messes on the carpet I was ready for Chris to come home and help!!

Saturday we took Trek for a hike. He LOVED it! He thinks he is bigger than he actually is. We met 2 great danes that looked very similar to horses. He played right beside them and never got scared. We were proud parents. Saturday night we spent some time in Raleigh with friends and family. Lots of fun!

Yesterday was really low key..and much needed. We bought a shampooer...again MUCH needed!! That lil gadget does just the trick for our poopy carpet! Chris and a friend went skeet shooting so we took Trek along. Not the best plan. We'll just say he is definitely not going to be a hunting dog. The gun shots scared him to death and he wouldn't get out of my lap inside the truck the entire time! Poor baby. And yes friends, I have been known to shoot a few flying objects myself!

Crazy New Schedule

I worked my first night shift in the ER last night. Let me just tell ya... my body doesn't know what's going on right now. I got home at 7am and went to bed and just woke up at 2pm for the first time. I feel completely unproductive. It was an interesting evening though. One of my patient's was actually from AR oddly enough. She was a truck driver that got was walking around the truck stop here in VA and got hit by another 18-wheeler. 1-2-3....OUCH! Lucky for her she only broke one rib. I had a crazy drunk lady come in too...she had no clue what was going on. She told us her "step husband" brought figure that one out!

Chris called yesterday to update me on our lil boy! I feel like such a parent. haha! We get so excited when he does something new. He pottied outside 4 times yesterday! WOO HOO! It's a big deal. He also walked up the front steps..another big deal considering he is super scared of stairs for some reason. I can't wait to see both my the men in my life tomorrow!

I work again tonight...should be interesting! Hopefully I'll get some sleep in the on-call room so I can get up and drive to NC in the morning. We'll see how many crazys come in and wreck my plan!

Puppy Training Day 2

So....Trek is a bit resistant to being potty trained. He is just so confused..poor little buddy. He has lived in 3 different places over the past 3 days. He can't quite figure out what's going on. He wants to be near us and play, but at the same time he gives NO warning signs before he potties. Yikes. He slept most of the night, but was ready to play at 5:30am this morning. I guess it's a good thing Chris gets up really early. I just rolled over haha! Apparently, Siberians are one of the hardest breeds to train. Fantastic. I guess this is a trial run in parenting 101!!! This should be interesting!

Happy Valentines Day!! Chris came to visit me in Virginia for the weekend. I have been sick with a sinus infection for about 10 days now, so needless to say I wasn't feeling top notch. We spent the Saturday running errands and ended up at a pet store. We have really been wanting a dog, but hadn't really had the time to invest in looking for one. We saw several cuties at the store, but one stood out. He is a siberian huskie and is only 10 weeks old!

We came home Saturday night without the lil pup because we needed to talk about it and make sure we could make it work with our strange lifestyle these days. We woke up this morning and just had to have him. So meet the newest addition to our family:

His name is Trek. He is the sweetest lil guy. He loves to cuddle and is very playful. The only problem we are having is getting him to understand the collar and leash concept. He doesn't get the "walk the dog" idea. He will take 2 steps and sit....then just stare at us. As soon as we get the leash and collar off....he is running circles around the living room. It's gonna take practice! We are so excited about him and can't wait to share more stories!!

Almost the Weekend

I am so ready for the weekend. Today seemed to drag along. I finished my first rotation in Pediatrics this week. Let me tell ya...what an experience. I feel like I have been sick for the past 6 weeks. I always knew kids spread germs, but man I have a new appreciation for just how much. I had to go back to school today to take a test and get set up for my next rotation in Emergency Medicine. I am sure I'll have some super great stories to tell!

Chris has spent the last 4 days in the field. I finally got to talk to him last night and he seems really happy with his platoons performance! He gets to come visit me this weekend!! YAY! This will mark the first weekend in a month or more that he has come to Virginia instead of me going to NC. We'll see what valentine surprises my sweet hubby comes up with this year!

Techy Day

Ok so all of my friends have been blogging for a while now. I love reading their posts and it really helps keep me updated on their lives. I was recently convinced to join the wonderful world of Twitter by my lovely friend Kelsey and figured I would just make it a whole tech filled day and start my very own blog. I have no clue how often I'll actually get to post considering I don't have a computer at my fingertips most of the day. We'll see. I am "tech-ed" out for one to study.
