The Best Thing Ever

Howdy!  It was bedtime hours ago is bedtime but I’m bubbling over with good cheer so I wanted to blog.  Spread the love and all that.

Note 1 relates to note 2.  Note 1 – Please ignore my crazy hair and old lady scarf and focus in on how fabulous my giant puffy sleeves are.

Love them!  I bought this top back in my teacher days and it always made me feel like a professional city lady.

Note 2 – I got to Google Video Chat with Adam tonight and it was the best thing ever.

My husband is the most handsome man on the planet!  And me…. well, I’ve got my great sleeves.

Adam has been/will be traveling a lot for interview this year and suggesting that we use the video chat today is the smartest thing he’s ever done.  I can’t even tell you how good it was to see and hear him while we said goodnight.  And this best thing ever is actually a silver lining on what seemed like a terrible situation.  You see, yesterday Adam broke his cell phone.  And if he’d had his phone with him on his trip today we wouldn’t have been on Google Chat at all.  The money and time we are going to lose fixing it and the hassle of Adam having to navigate a new city tomorrow sans phone all pale in comparison to how wonderful it was to video chat this evening.  <–silver lining

Don’t get me wrong, all of the travel has been/will be hard.  A lot of his interview dates are right on top of one another and they make our busy schedule even more hectic.  For example – he got to the apartment at 2am this morning and was heading to the airport by 6am.  This meant I got 3 hours of sleep last night.  Ugh.

It was a double pizza day.  Making a smoothie meant getting out of bed five minutes earlier so instead I breakfasted on the cheese slice Adam brought me from our favorite pizza place in Brooklyn.

Amazing and also a bit sickening.

Clinic went well today, even though I was tired.  In the morning I partnered with another student to chart on a tube feed and in the afternoon I shadowed a RD on the renal transplant floor.

Lunch was a mix of food from home and $2 spent at the salad bar with our great nutrition department discount.  A ‘Thanksgiving leftovers’ sandwich of sliced turkey, homemade cranberry sauce, and cream cheese on a Sandwich Thin.

Plus Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Chips.

And salad bar with cherry tomato, cucumber, carrot, red onion, and honey mustard dressing.

I always have to really talk myself into salad at home but when I’m out and about it tastes so good!

Dinner was round two of pizza since I was stuck on campus working on a group project.

A buffalo chicken slice that was nowhere near as good as Zetti’s.  And I dropped a greasy piece of chicken on my nice pants.  I clearly should have gone with another salad instead!

Finally, I ate 2 oz of chocolate covered kettle corn nuts while I puttered around the house this evening.

They are good, but not as good as they were inside cookies.

How do you stay close to your loved ones when you are physically far away?
