OH HEY.

Here’s a thing that no one tells you about summers in your midtwenties/summers when you’re an actual working adult: they are so busy! I actually spent four weekends away from home at the beginning of this summer. The Accountant hasn’t been home in over five weeks at this point.

What I’m trying to say is that it’s almost August and I don’t really understand how that happened because yesterday it was May I swear.

If you can’t tell, I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants right now. You know what helps me feel in control and capable?

MERINGUE.

Peach and Raspberry Galette

Spring (slash really it’s just Summer-Lite in Texas) is here!

The Accountant and I have already had to turn on our A/C. Because apparently our apartment doesn’t believe in insulation. The weather outside is the weather inside.

Anyway, even though spring/summer brings things like heat and AC and sweating, it also brings super awesome things like baseball and sundresses and fruit pies and like one week of weather where you can do activities outside and bluebonnets.

So, I’m on my OB/Gyn rotation right now.  On the OB part with the babies.  And the thing is that OB’s work a lot.  Like…a lot.

The main problem with this is not the loss of sleeping hours, although that is sort of a sad thing.  The main problem is that when you get up really early and your day is really long, you’ve created these extra meal times. (more…)

PB&J…from scratch

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this post.  A few weeks ago, my college roommate Sarah was in town visiting.  Even though it took us awhile to figure out some of our other daily activities (sometimes a challenge to choose an summer activity in Texas that does not involve heatstroke), we obvs knew for sure that we would be baking something.  (more…)

I moved.  My friend Cathy (not to be confused with Kate, whom I do not live with despite spending most Monday nights in front of her television) and I moved into a 2 bedroom because did you know that’s cheaper than paying for rent all by yourself?  I only took health care economics in college, and we didn’t learn that.   (Also don’t ask me any questions about health care economics, because I don’t know the answer.)
