Tim has completed this semester, and passed everything! So he is a 2nd semester P3. We officially have only a year and half left. In January, he starts a six week rotation, then has six weeks off, then another six week rotation, THEN he starts rotations full time (9-5, M-F) from May 09-May 10. It was so wonderful to just spend time together this weekend without the stress of him having to study or work on school work. We watched movies Friday and Saturday night. On Saturday, we just got out and drove around in some of the fun neighborhoods around here and went to several stores just to be around the hustle and bustle of the weekend before Christmas! Then last night, we got together with some of our friends from Church and my Bible study. The husbands played video games and the wives played Chicken Foot. It was so fun!
This week, I only have to work two days (Praise the Lord!). The doctor I work for always goes to Thailand for 3 weeks in December/January to visit his family and it is so nice that it falls right at Christmas and New Year's. So, we don't have any patients to see, just phones to answer! Tim is working several days this week at the CVS. On Wednesday, I plan to get out (because I'm crazy like that) and go to grocery store to get everything for our Christmas dinner and I might even decide to go to Target, just to walk around and enjoy that wonderful Target smell (by that, I mean the smell of the Target popcorn I will be carrying around!). After Tim gets off work, we will go to our church's Christmas Eve service. I am looking forward to that.
Next week, I just work Monday and Tuesday, also. So, after I get off work on Tuesday, we are headed to NWA to see my family. My parents have surprised us with a trip to Branson for us and my brother and sister-in-law. We will head up there Wednesday afternoon and come back Friday evening. We are looking forward to shopping and relaxing. I consider anytime I get to stay in a hotel room a vacation...I'm pretty sure I get that from my mom! We will head back home on Saturday, then normal life starts back again. I'm already thinking of when the soonest I could take a vacation in January is...how bad is that?!
I will try to post again before Christmas, but if I don't, Tim and I wish a very merry Christmas to you and your families. We pray you remember the true reason for the season, as we celebrate the birth of our glorious Savior! Enjoy a time of reflection on that very first Christmas.
