A Short-Lived Love

I have been putting off this post for a few weeks because I was embarrassed about how typical this story was. We randomly decided to get a puppy... Seriously, it even shocked me that we did this. Those who know me know that I am NOT a dog lover and they will not even be surprised by this story. But, out of no where we wanted a dog, found one online for sale, within minutes drove an hour and a half away and bought it! She was a little cockapoo and was so cute and sweet. After five LONG days of zero sleep, locking the poor thing in the bathroom for 10 hours in the day time, baking chicken for the dog cause she wouldn't eat (um, high-maintenance?), Joey never home, and not being able to leave the house once I got home from work, we decided we better rethink the dog situation. Believe it or not, we were both so sad! We gave her to a family we know who unlike us has people home in the day, a backyard, an actual house, and people to play with her. So there ya go, our five days of dog love.

We Love the Hospital

We live in the hospital (school/work). We get there at 6:15am every morning and part our separate ways. I go to the Sarver Heart Center on the 5th floor of the hospital and Joey goes to the 2nd floor to the medical school. Some mornings, Joey will bring me hospital breakfast since they don't open until 6:30 and I am already working away. If we are lucky, we meet up for hospital lunch. If we are not so lucky, we eat hospital cafeteria lunch separately. Then, by the time I am done working, I am ready for dinner (yesterday hospital pizza) and Joey stays till all hours of the night (not sure what hospital food he got last night). If we were picky eaters we'd be in trouble.

Long story short, we love the hospital and I miss my husband.
