A place to call home

Over the past few months, Dan and I had been looking for a place to settle in Lexington.  We had several options, but what we were finally blessed with is a lovely lady who has large rooms for rent in her home.  We will have our own private entrance via  spiral staircase, a private bathroom, and walk in closet--she even provides a queen bed with the room!  That will certainly be a luxury for Dan, whose 6'2" frame has been squished in a full-sized bed along with me for the past two years! She is very much an aficionado of gardening, has a pool, and beautiful home.  The rent is reasonable and she would even like Dan to do some things around the house, so that should lower the rent amount considerably more!

Definitely a wonderful blessing for us, so we can arrive with a home set up while we do house and job hunting! :)

Sunday Thoughts

11 Her husband has full confidence in her
       and lacks nothing of value.

Paige's Highlights

Well, it's been a while--time to get back on track!

1. The Nourished Kitchen.  A wonderful website with the right thought in mind.  Despite being in "traditional" medicine, I think there's something to be said for REAL food and having things as little processed as possible.  Also, I very much believe that anything home-raised, home-cooked, and well-balanced is better for you than even a diet of all Lean Cuisine and low-fat this and that.  As a disclaimer, it does feel like they're a bit more radical that I'd be willing to go on a daily basis, but the principles are there and they have some great recipes!  Enjoy!

2. Green House Cleaning. I found this website and was initially shocked by the pricey-ness.  But it did have a helpful page on a home cleaning spray with little more than baking soda and vinegar.  I LOVE this idea.  It should help prevent some of the accidental bleaching that seems to always happen every time I drag out the cleaning bucket.  Here's …

A little late for Easter, but right about that time.  One of my favorite flowers.

"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.""

The Final Trek

Well, today I start the beginning of the end.  This, ladies and gentlemen, is Day 1 of my LAST ROTATION!

PA school has been brutal.  It was definitely the hardest thing I think I've ever done--ever.  And it taught me a lot--like not getting hung up on the numerical grade and assessing myself and what I know, not necessarily performance on an exam.

But, it's all coming a very soon end!  :-D  No more traipsing all over the countryside ever 6 weeks, no more long distance marriage, no more having no idea what life will be like a month or two from now.  Twenty-four long months is quickly coming to and end--and I CAN'T WAIT!!!
