Mullberry Whine

poured out before bed

Sing It Sunday

I start my internship in just one week (eep), but have not let my (great) angst about the transition to Dr. M. Whine destroy my fun during this fabulous month of pre-work vacation.  Indeed, Mr. Whine and I have been running and flying about rather like headless fowl to enjoy completely this time.

After my graduation (a thoroughly long and hot day of heavy velvet gowns and hair destroying hats), I left my patients to Mr. Whine and other fine doctors, traveling home to visit with family.  Not satisfied with travel by car, we together hopped a flight and headed out West to visit Mr. Whine’s family for other variously exciting and snooze-worthy events and graduations.  Upon returning home, we’d scarcely unpacked before it was back to the airport for the seminal event of the year – a long and absolutely amazing trip to Alaska – hiking, camping, kayaking, boating, and, of course, eating and driving as one must do when spending large amounts of time in such a massive and beautifully untamed place (pictures to follow, teaser below).  Once home, we again welcomed family into our (dusty from our recent absences) apartment for Mr. Whine’s graduation from internal medicine residency (a thoroughly long and cold – why do they keep those restaurants so frigid?! – evening of speeches and plaques and jesting).

And now – Mr. Whine is back to work, and I’ve one week to relax and contemplate life (read: furiously review ACLS and pulmonary/critical care medicine) before I dive into my PGY1 year.  Hoping to (but knowing my odds) sail through this new chapter in our medical and personal lives.

For more AWOLNATION…  For more Nanalew nonsense

      Thank you Scott! And I wish I could take credit for the beauty of the photo – it’s nearly impossible, no matter how poor a photographer you are, to snap photos in such a place as AK and not score a handful of good ones!

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
