There are only a couple more weeks to go before orientation, and I am leaving no stone unturned in the relaxation/fun department! The number one priority this past week and next is making sure my daughter gets to enjoy her final days of summer, since she only has one more full week to go until she starts school, and I think this weekend was yet another success :-)
|I'm not an alcoholic, I promise LOL!|
On Friday, I had the chance to meet with one of my future classmates who is a parent as well. We found this really cool in-door playground place not too far from our homes and brought the kids along to have some fun. It was a win-win situation for everybody! Our kids got to play and tire themselves out for the night, and we got a chance to socialize and get to know each other. Outside of the school’s brief meet-and-greet, I had not met any of my classmates yet, so it was really nice being able to chat with someone who will literally be in the same shoes as myself for the next four years. The best part of the day though was a visit from one of my sisters. She drove in all the way from Louisiana AND brought me a daiquiri! To say I was happy was an understatement, LOL!
|She loved the Georgia Aquarium!|
On Saturday, we made it a family day and took a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. My daughter loved it, and it was so cool learning about the different types of marine life. She freaked out a bit during a storm scene in the dolphin show, but other than that, we had absolutely no problems. Afterwards, we weren’t ready for the day to end, so we also took a trip to the movies to see Transformers. Yes, I know it had its sexist moments (for all you critics out there), but sometimes a girl just wants to see some sexy cars and watch stuff get blown up! The movie met all my expectations and then some.
|A very happy and eventful day :-)|
I’m going to try to plan more fun things to do this week, but today is a relaxation day. This is the first time in a long time where I haven’t had to worry about work responsibilities or anything major, and I’m really enjoying it. I don’t know what med school life will bring, but at least I’ll be relatively stress-free going into it!
