There's only one week to go until I take Step 2, and then head to Michigan for a week of vacation!  How, you ask, have I been spending my study time?  Well, I've been drinking lots of coffee, eating lots of fruit and string cheese, wearing sweatshirts in Starbucks even though it's like 90 degrees outside, and reading lots and lots of pages of doctor stuff.  This study month seems to be a bit easier on me than the last one, which I am quite pleased about.  I've also found the time to do some other things that don't really contribute to my education....

Betsy and I drove to Rita's... 45 miles away.  It's the closest one there is!  Note to anyone in Winston looking for a business opportunity, I think a Rita's franchise would do quite well.

I baked cookies.  Well, I tried to bake cookies... and then I got distracted talking to a friend in the parking lot, forgot they were in the oven, and this is how they turned out.  Whoops.  Instead I ate a peanut butter cup.

I went for a run... at noon.  Note to self: that is a really bad idea in NC in June.  I'm pretty confident God forgot to put oxygen in the air today.  It was all water.  Bleck.

A friend and I went to Pump at the Y.  Now, I like to consider myself in decent shape.  Granted, this whole bum ankle thing has slowed me down a little, but I can still keep up with most people.  With that in mind, I will say that Pump kicked my butt.  I can almost move my arms again without too much pain.  I didn't know I had certain muscles.  I can't wait to go back again!

I went to the farmers market for some good 'ole in season fruit and veggies.  Made it out with peaches, blueberries, strawberries, green beans, and peanut butter filled pretzels.  Maybe the pretzels aren't good 'ole in season food... but they are delicious!

I suppose I should get back to the studying and stop spending my time doing other stuff...  But it's summer, and this is basically my vacation and so I think I will keep doing fun things AND studying.  It seems to be working alright.

On the agenda for this weekend:  Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookie factory, cookout with some LeadershipNOW people down from PA, trip to NC winery for some wine tasting, run at Salem lake, studying. 

I'm sure there will be stories.....

Until then,

PS.  There actually is something written in "Meet Me" now... check it out!
