March Madness!

For those of you who might suspect that I have a case of the Jimmer's, I would say most definitely... but that isn't what this post is about.

March has been a lovely, crazy month so far.

On March 7 we found out Paul got into Radiology here in Saskatoon.  It was his first choice, but really would have been equally happy had he got family medicine or internal medicine.  On one hand, it was a brutally difficult decision what to rank #1, #2 and #3, but on the other - it was a nice position to be in; feeling like whatever happened would be great (even if it meant he would also be a little disappointed regardless of which one he got because it meant he couldn't do the other 2.  Any wonder why the guy got married when he was 29?!?!?)   My first choice was whichever would make him the most happy, but I was secretly (or not so secretly) rooting for radiology - I wanted for us to to be able to see him!  So major, major yeah!!!  I am so ridiculously proud of him.  I love talking to my dad, because he is just as pleased and together, we can both go on for hours.  And the biggest plus - we don't have to move!!!!!!  We get to enjoy the pool for at least 5 more summers!!!  Woo hoo!!

Second big news of the month - we had a baby girl on March 13!!  I couldn't be more thrilled that Charlotte has a sister and that I have doubled my odds that one of my girls as adults will still like me.  She is perfect.  I sincerely wanted her name to be Lovely, because that is what she is, but will settle on calling her lovely, lovely, Eloise.  Eloise Margaret Russell.

Sorry Jimmer.  You can't really compare with that.
