Just a few family pics!
While we are on the topic I wish to share with everyone the trauma we go through to get a good pictures:
First I come up with the idea that we should take pictures. Then Joe dreads every moment. Then I call my dad who says he wants to take pictures. Then I pick out outfits for everyone, to which Joe wrinkles his nose. He then goes into a tantrum declaring that he will only sit for pictures for one hour. He also tells me if anyone says anything about how he smiles (which looks like a second grade picture) he is done.
My dad comes over and I explain the rules. He takes this for an open invitation to harass Joe about his smiling. Joe is mad, I am mad, Jordy is crabby...
It is humid and I am sweating buckets.
We didn't get the perfect picture, but a few are okay...

On Tuesday night I saw the most beautiful sight I have seen in a long time,
Valentine in my rear view mirror!!
Finally our two month rotation out there came to an end. I was thrilled to come home.
Overall the rotation was really good. The staff at the hospital was great, the patients very nice, the town very pretty. I did learn quite a bit, and feel a lot more confident working on my own.
But there is no place like home! I was so sick of going back and forth between Omaha and Valentine. I would always forget something in one place or the other. Jordy was hurting himself constantly b/c the floor was cement with a thin layer of carpet. And Joe was convinced that something was wrong with the apartment b/c he was constantly exhausted while we were there. The last night we were there i thought I smelt gas...
Here are some pics of our time there, including a secret trip to Mt. Rushmore...Shhh!! Future President: Jordan Carter Negroni

I am about to reveal a shocking revelation. Please ensure you are sitting down before reading on...
Losing weight is HARD!!
I want to eat and eat and eat!! It is so hard because we go out to eat a lot and at every meal I want a dessert. I keep rationalizing each one; we don't come here very often, it is a special occcasion, it's date night....
I find myself fantasizing about chocolate ice cream.
Over the weekend I didn't make it to the gym. We had so much to do there that I was exhausted. Today I tried to go to the gym between clinics, but apparently my leaving was premature. As I was doing cardio the owner of the gym came over and said I had a phone call. It was the clinic saying I had two patient in clinic. Oops. I came rushing back...
To further thwart my weight loss efforts I forgot my running shoes at home in Omaha. I was trying to run in my skechers- not such a good idea as now my feet are cursing me.
The diet part isn't so bad. Since I am alone I have been eating special K for every meal.
Today I am supposed to take more stork attack pics, but have no one here to take them for me. It will have to wait until this weekend. Eventually I will be able to post these pics, once I am not so hideous and the general public is not at risk of dying from seeing my massive carcass.

So this weekend Joe and I spent getting the house ready for our guests. It was quite a project. We had to clean the hallway, move Jordy's dresser into it, dismantle his crib and move that into our bedroom. Then we dismantled the futon downstairs and moved that into the "guest room". After all that was set up Joe put up two baby gates to prevent our precious little boy from hurling himself down a flight of stairs. It was quite an exhausting weekend.
Sunday I had lunch with mom, dad, and Joe for father's day. Then I drove back to Valentine, with Pez (my mini-schnauzer). Joe decided to stay with Jordy in Omaha so that he could get things ready for visitors. The house requires much cleaning! And I have to admit, I wasn't too sad to have several nights of uninterrupted sleep.
Last night I slept like a champ! I woke up at 5am to feed Jordy, realized there was no baby, and rolled back over and slept for another three hours. I was almost late for work!
I am not sure what I will do on my own this week. I plan to take Pezzy for a walk, and go to the gym. Not sure what else there is to do alone...
