Let me preface this post by apologizing for not getting any pics of Ellison in her Easter dress up. I just plain forgot to grab the camera, however did mention it earlier this morning as we were running out the door to try to make it to sacrament meeting before the sacrament was passed...we failed in both areas. Easter in Mississippi is so different from Easter in Utah. Some members here observe church the way other religions do...a Christmas or Easter thing and sacrament was full. By the time primary was over, the size dropped from around 15 to 8. But nonetheless sharing time went fine.
This coming week is the last week I have my student...I am ecstatic and I am sure she is too. It has been a long 12 weeks and I am ready for her to be done. We have had many bumps in the road and a few weeks ago I got to the point of telling her that if she left the hospital hating me, it was fine as long as she had learned to treat her patients safely (all my coworkers think she is crazy too). Anyhow, even though we didn't mesh well, clinically she is doing fine...professional behaviors still need work.
Kam has had the past week off for spring break and has been enjoying the time home with Ellison. I think if he had the option, he would be a stay at home dad. He has been enjoying his time so well, that I have had to nag him to study...which he still hasn't done. Ellison has also been battling a cold for the past week, and I think she is finally on the upswing (thank goodness). We also got our taxes back this week and found out we are getting a nice little return. We will be using part of the money to pay off medical bills and get Kam some insurance. We of course will save some, but I was also thinking new carpeting in the house would be nice, but it's probably a long shot! So, I am going to pose this question, just what are all of you doing with your tax return money?
