After my birthday #SummerSixteen seemed like it flew by even faster than it came in. I'm happy to report that I survived the busiest service of third year. I still have to conquer two mini-blocks of antepartum (inpatient obstetrics) and 7 weeks of GYN-Onc, but I think I will be just fine.
Since leaving Wake Med, I have been on a rotation called Ambulatory Care Clinic (or ACC). ACC is just what it sounds like - I get to spend my days in the outpatient OB and GYN clinics. It has been great to learn how to run my clinic more efficiently, especially now that I am a big, bad third year and know a whole lot more about what I am doing...
The hours are also quite nice which has allowed time for other responsibilities - like working on my third year research project, meetings about interview season, tending to my self-care initiative (or lack thereof), and some much needed recuperation with our family. I feel like it took me two weeks before I felt like I was crawling out of the hole of exhaustion from Wake.
In Johnson news...
Natey started second grade! Isabelle is beaming with as much pride over him as we are.
Big Nate finally was able to live out his fantasy on the race track one weekend when our family visited the Charlotte Motor Speedway. And I am sure his fantasy all those years ago included being at a racetrack with his two kids haha!
|Back when he was just a teenager with a Mustang :-D|
And we completed the fasted (and longest) road trip in history over Labor Day weekend when we went to Detroit for Nate's mom's birthday party:
And then afterward hit the road again to see my parents in Indiana. Something about the familiar spaces at home that seem to put everything back into alignment. I needed it. An added bonus was that my brother josh, his girlfriend, plus my uncle and his family all came up for the day too!
|Seeing your babies in the place you grew up gives you all the warm fuzzies...|
|So happy I got to see my sweet Samson|
|And my sweet middle brother came to see us|
|Josh and Bridget xo|

|We will talk about my child's sass at another time...|
Thanks for bearing with me, still reading, and indulging in my photo dump...
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
