We Have Been M.I.A.

Whoa, the times just flies by and then you realize that you have lost touch with the world. The past week and a half has been filled with colds, flu like symptoms, and eye infections.....just to name a few things. The good news is that we are all on antibiotics and doing much better. The day Vaughn came back from his interviews the "sick bugs" just decided to hit us all HARD. Luckily we are seeing a light at the end of this tunnel.
In other news, Vaughn has completed his round of interviews. He had 12 interviews ranging all over the country. We could go anywhere. Then came the process of ranking them in order from the ones we want the most, to the least. And yes, that is completed as well..........NOW WE WAIT!! Yet again, another waiting game. I will be glad to know what, when, and where we are going so that life isn't in limbo any more. This part of the game is exciting and yet a little scary at the same time. On one hand, we are so excited that he is finished with medical school, YAHOO, and that residency is in sight; on the other hand, it means another move and another time to meet new friends, new school for Tyson, new church ward and a new life, basically. That last part is always the hard part I think.
By way of announcements, Taryn is cutting all four of her "EYE teeth or Canines" as they call them, at the same time. The poor kid not only is suffering from a cold, but she gets the double whammy of having all of her teeth coming in at the same time. The drool is all over the place, not to mention the fact that we have taken out stock in Kleenex's for her constant runny nose.
Tyson is plugging along nicely with school. He loves it and loves the snowy weather. He taught himself how to snap and blow a bubble with bubble gum last week and is a very proud 4 year old.
I keep busy by running around with Tyson and Taryn and keeping up on the household stuff. I will be glad for the COLD Michigan weather to be over....the days are all the same, GRAY and more GRAY. We haven't seen sun for about a week and it is getting a little tiresome, and the forecast doesn't look too promising for the next week. So more gray skies and snow...lovely!
