Buh-Bye Old Friend

The truck is sold. He was pretty and shiny and new when I bought him 8 years ago, and he transported me faithfully to and from the brewery and then to and from grad school. I felt a bit betrayed when he flipped over while I was driving him on the interstate during an Iowa ice storm. You might say that the accident was my fault given my naïveté re: the treacherous conditions and all, but after that, things just weren't the same between us. I am glad to see him go to a better home. Yay for finding better homes for your vehicles that you no longer share a bond with.

In other news, I have 8 (count them 8!!!) days left of my last medical school rotation. Hallelujah. And they will be a painful eight days, let me assure you. I am on urology. I have seen lots of penises and many a mean thing done to aforementioned penises. And I have to get to the hospital every morning at the CRACK of dawn - like before 6am. For really no good reason. Terrible attitude, yes I know, must remember - 8 days left! And I think I might be ill one of those days.

I have projects to share, but I have been spending all potential blogging time sleeping lately. Is it normal for a 30 year old female to take 1-3 hour naps everyday? I hope so because that's what I'm doing. Being rested is good. Urology is bad. Only 8 more days.

Congrats on selling the truck. But what are we going to do with all our torn up linoleum? :-)
As long as it isn't somnolent detachment, sleep is normal. Sleep is good. If you have some extra, send it my way. Or put it in jars, seal up tight, and save in pantry for consumption next winter. Can't wait for new project posts, and the button date...woohooo!
