Tuesday things

So, Taylor got back, safe and sound.  Minus a pair of jeans- which she threw up on and didn't get a chance to wash them.  So she didn't want to bring them back to the states in her luggage, so she threw them away.
Awesome.....although i can't say i don't blame her.
She has all of her pics on her own computer- so hopefully i can get my hands on some so y'all can see them.
And look what she got me!  A Joey Hat!!

For those of you who don't know, I love Friends.  I think it is one of the best shows EVER and any chance i have to watch it, i will.  Taylor likewise loves the show and in the afternoon when we get home from work and school and are fixing dinner, Friends is on in the background. TBS is amazing because they play Friends from 4-6 pm!  When it first aired in 1994, i didn't watch it.....and Taylor wasn't even born (!)  but when i went off to college, it was part of my Thursday night lineup. I even remember bringing Taylor over the my BFF Kaitlin's apartment to watch the show. I was devastated when the series ended in 2004, but did you know that the series finale (the 236th episode), airing on May 6, 2004, was watched by 51.1 million American viewers, making it the fourth most watched series finale in television history.  Pretty cool!
The best thing is that I can pretty much reference a friend episode every day when someone strange, funny, or quirky happens to me.  And now a days, one of my friends, Jane, and I will send each other text messages quoting hysterical lines from episodes that are playing on TBS.  Hehe.

And since it is the end of June, you guys in the medical profession know what that means.....July 1st is right around the corner and new INTERNS start!  EEEeeeekkkkk!  :)
I'm just kidding of course (kinda).  So back to July 1st and what it means to me.  It means that i am about to start my third, and final year in Pulmonary/Critical Care fellowship!  So after 4 years of medical school, 3 years of Internal Medicine Residency, and 2 (of 3) years of fellowship, i am almost done!
Here are my co-workers.....whom i love and would not have been able to survive without.

And saving the best for last......look who got her "restricted" license yesterday! 
So yes, this means that Taylor passed the road test (!!!) and can now drive without an adult.  For the next year, she can drive from 6am to 10pm without an adult......and do you know what this means for me?  No more being a chauffeur!  She can now drive to babysitting jobs, tutoring, sleepovers, the mall, and pretty much anywhere else!  WHOOO HOOOO!
Only downside- i think this means we need a 2nd car.  I am NOT going to buy her a new car, so don't worry.....but i just don't see how my crazy work schedule and her crazy school and social schedule can revolve around one car.  ugggghhhh.
Anyone have a car they want to sell me on the cheap?!?!?!?!?

Happy Tuesday everyone.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  1. Will she have to pay for any portion of the car herself? I'm not telling you how to parent. I just remember my friends in HS and College who had paid for some portion (or in some cases all of) their vehicles seemed to take a lot more pride in it and took care of their cars more.
