Worst Day of the Year Ride

Sunday, February 11, 2007
Landon did the Worst Day ride for the first time this year sans me, but he took Samuel with him in the Burley. They had a great time. I dropped them off, studied, then went and picked them up. It was an 18 mile route around Portland with hot chili at the finish line. Landon said there were many stops, and great support. Definitely a ride for our list. I was sorry to miss out this year, but I have a mid-term on Wednesday, and my quiz on the appendicular skeleton tomorrow night.

Samuel's party was so fun. He had a great time, and he's happy to be two. We got him balloons & a Bert balloon as well. He received several nice presents from his friends that came to the party, and he has been happily entertaining himself with them ever since. He's a special boy, and we've had the best two years with him, and look forward to the many years to come.

It's my baby boy's birthday tomorrow, and I just finished frosting the chocolate cake--Samuel's favorite! I let him have some frosting since his birthday is tomorrow & boy did that put a smile on his face. He can hold up two fingers & say he is "twoooo."

Studied lots today. Got a killer test on Monday & a midterm on Wednesday. I'm taking some relaxing breaths of fresh air & trying not to let my stress levels rise.

My massage therapist canceled on me tonight--she's also a doula & one of her clients was delivering. I could have really used a massage--I look forward to them every Friday!

February 9th...I do remember two years ago that I was in quite a lot of pain at this point in labor. The years go by ridiculously fast.

A life of dramatic circumstances, even in death.

Random Thoughts

I've been working on memorizing the appendicular skeleton & all its special features the past couple of days. Last night, I was at the library studying the bones from the bone box on reserve there, and plan to do the same Thursday night. This morning, I put in a couple of hours of sheer memorization of the pelvic girdle & scapular bones. I have a test on the entire appendicular skeleton next Monday and a midterm in lecture on Wednesday, so this is going to be a crazy study week for me. Every groove & bump on the bone has a name, and it's all game for the quiz. We have one week to learn the appendicular skeleton, then we have to turn around and memorize the axial skeleton next week, and after that we get to move onto the scores of muscles. It's going to be a really busy 5 weeks for me--I'm already looking forward to finals & spring break. I just hope I don't burn out before then! I keep reminding myself to have fun with this--after all, I'm committing the next two to three years to study! I'm working on finding the balance between taking this seriously enough to get the grades I want so I can actually get into a nursing program, but not take it so seriously that the rest of my life falls to pieces in the meantime. Life is all about balance, right?

Samuel is going to be two on Saturday, and his train table arrived yesterday, so we set it up for him. I wanted it to be up for his little party Saturday morning. He loves it! It's a Nilo model. I will post pictures on his blog http://www.samuelkuhn.blogspot.com/ later this afternoon.

I've been drinking lots of iced vanilla lattes. This great coffee shop opened up this past fall in our neighborhood, and their coffee is excellent, and it's a great place to study, because they have big classroom-size tables, quiet environment, and an open & roomy shop. I also found another coffee shop on the east side that renders all the same features, although they have an added bonus of being open until 11pm during the week & 12am on Friday & Saturdays! I'm frequenting that shop quite often these days.

Yesterday, Samuel and I went for a short walk & he collected sticks along the way. It was nice to get out & enjoy the fresh air & the warmer weather that proves spring is on the way.

I'm looking forward to spring break. We're not sure where we will go, but we are planning on taking a family vacation that week. Any recommendations for family-friendly spring-break vacation destinations on the west coast? Please make your suggestions in the comment section below! We're open to flying.

I can already tell this year is going to fly by. Feb. 7th already? Crazy!

5 days until Samuel's 2nd birthday! I can't hardly believe it! He will be in preschool before I know it.

This week is going to be crazy. I have to memorize the appendicular skeleton by next Monday night, I have a midterm a week from Wednesday, and Samuel's birthday is this weekend. Crazy!

Of course, I always remind myself that I birthed a 9lb. 14oz. boy, so that really does mean that I can do anything.

Spring is on the way...we're already a week into February. The robins have returned, and the crocuses are sprouting up. Before long, everything will be in full bloom.
