We had a fun girls night out last night. We all went to the Cinderella ballet! I love Cinderella, it was one of my favorite Disney shows as a kid. Dan and I were supposed to go last Saturday for Valentines Day-yes, I am a mean wife, I was going to drag my husband to the ballet. We had tickets and I was really excited, especially to get out (we had been sick and stuck at home all week.) But come Saturday night, we were still very, very sick. Dan was thrilled to have an excuse, any excuse, even being deathly ill, to get out of going, but I was disappointed. We gave our tickets to our friends, stayed in and watched The Godfather, one of Dan's favorite movies. See, I am not that mean of a wife, I am perfectly willing to watch these mafia movies.
Anyway, my sweet mom got me a ticket and we all had so much fun going together last night, minus the husbands. She was crazy, she rushed from work to meet us at the ballet and then caught a flight to St. Thomas at midnight afterward! Really, I don't feel that bad for her because she is probably lounging on the beach right now at beautiful Megan's Bay, soakin' up the sun, while we all freeze here in Utah. Is anyone else sick of winter? As a kid, I used to love winter, the snow, skiing, making snowmen, and sledding. But as I get older, the more I grow to dislike this season. After Christmas time I have had it with the cold. Now listen all of you sweater-lovers, if you were stuck in a snow storm on I-15 for four hours and had to drive around in a VW bug with no heater, you would change your mind about winter! Our solution, moving to Texas! Maybe right now is not the best time to make a decision about where to move for medical school, cause the sunny states are calling my name. It's like grocery shopping when you're hungry and all you want to buy are the sugary snacks. Dan just got an invitation to an interview at Cornell University in Manhattan, New York. It is a good school and a great opportunity but I just can't stop thinking about how cold it is there. Have any of you ever been to Manhattan in the middle of winter? Insanely cold, too cold. No thanks, it is sandal-wearing weather only for this girl. Thank goodness spring is right around the corner, and maybe then my judgment about where we should go to med. school won't be clouded by the snow.
