1. I like my family! After a scheduling snafu on my part, I made an unexpectedly early trip to Dallas last weekend to see my sister. We took the kids to six flags, and I had a blast with my niece and nephew. They're still too little for big roller coasters, but they went on all the little kid rides and small roller coasters. I loved seeing them have a good time. Alex especially giggled all the way through the roller coasters. I can't wait for them to be big enough to ride the larger ones with me.
2. I like my labmates! Right now I have three great ladies working for me, all of whom I've known for many years. Shout out to Jamie, Maggie, and Lauren. My lab is a small one and unfortunately I'll only have all three of them for just a couple of months, but for right now they add a great vitality to our lab.
3. I like my sister's dogs! She has two young ones, one still a big puppy, and I love seeing them romp around and play with each other. Her side yard has a set of external stairs that lead up to a small balcony/second floor entrance, and recently the youngest dog figured out he could go up there to get a bigger view of the neighborhood. He taught the other dog, and now when you go outside you will often hear and see them barking and looking down from above. I think they like the new perch! Their names are Checker and Auto (all my sister's dogs have had car names). Auto likes to jump on your lap and stick his tongue in your ear.
Thanks as always to LeeAnna!
