Everyone, meet Graycie:
She’s a 7-month old Russian Blue Point kitty cat, and she’s the newest member of the Berg family .
After we had to say goodbye to our previous cat, Ashley, a couple of weeks ago, my family was devastated. It was like there was there was this empty hole that nothing could fill, and we all knew that it wouldn’t be filled until we got another cat. My dad soon found himself searching through humane society ads and one day he stumbled upon a picture of this little gem, and a couple of days later my parents were on their way to pick her up and bring Graycie to her new home.
I’ve been dying to meet her all week, and yesterday we finally got a chance to get acquainted .
She is such a doll. She absolutely loves to play, and while it takes her a little while to warm up to you, it’s not long before she’s crawling all over your lap begging for attention. We will always hold a special place in our hearts for Ash, but right now I’m thrilled to provide a loving home for this cute little furball. I can only hope for a long and happy life for her.
Breakfast this morning was just an epic fail. Since my new rotation doesn’t start until tomorrow and I have today off, I woke up excited to give crepes another try. Unfortunately, my mom doesn’t have any round, non-stick pans so I attempted to make them using a large griddle. Um, there’s a reason why you are supposed to use a round pan, and my griddle resulted in a crepe disaster.
Then I decided to try re-creating this amazing peanut butter smoothie I had gotten multiple times at a café last week, but of course it didn’t taste the same. In fact, the odd taste of my protein powder kind of ruined it and I ended up throwing it away after only drinking about 1/4 of it. At this point I became extremely frustrated and didn’t want to try making anything else, so I ended up just heating up a vegan blueberry muffin that my mom picked up at Oryana yesterday.
It was good, and I should have just eaten that in the first place.
After spending the morning cleaning the kitchen that I managed to trash and catching up on blogs, I met my sister for lunch at The Dish. I got my usual T.C.’s Favorite salad with walnuts, dried cherries, gorgonzola and chicken:
Now I have to start getting my things together for my next rotation. It’s actually not here in Traverse City; it’s in Petoskey, which is about an hour and a half north from here. However, I’m looking forward to it because it’s something completely different from all of my other rotations: it’s a veterinary rotation! Ever since I was a P1 and saw it listed as a P4 elective rotation, I knew I wanted to do it. Before I decided to change my major to pharmacy, I actually used to want to go to vet school. I worked at a local veterinary hospital for about a year and a half before I got my job at the pharmacy.
Rotation sites are pretty competitive and not everyone gets what they want, so I was stoked when I found out that I got this elective! However, the downside is that it’s all the way up in Petoskey and I don’t know anyone up there. I’m staying with a woman who lives near the vet and has a room that she rents out to Ferris pharmacy students and Michigan State veterinary students. My preceptor recommended her to me, and I’m glad I was able to find a place to stay for such a short period of time. However, I only plan on staying there during the week and I’ll be driving home every weekend either to work or just relax with my family. Hopefully this month will fly by!
Enjoy your afternoon and I’ll catch ya later
