It seems like years have gone by in the last week.

Lots of stuff has been happening this week....Almost all of it really good, or really, really bad.
However, tomorrow is Grant's birthday, and things are getting better....

Last week, our friend, John "kiwi" Flitcroft died from a heart attack. Leaving behind his wife, our dear friend Kristen, who is also one of my veterinary technicians. He was 33.
For some things, there just aren't enough tears.

So, after that horrible event, our transmission blowing in our pickup, pain in my knee, only getting to go to my conference for a short time, and having them give us the wrong pizza again, just doesn't seem that bad. We are very lucky. I am very, very lucky.

Now...on to the good news...

We went to San Antonio for the first 2 days of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society annual Symposium. Grant had taken a few days off to go with me.

San Antonio, even though we were only there 1 night, was awesome!!!
We stayed at the Marriot Riverwalk.
The lady that checked us in was so nice, and she gave us a room on the 24th floor with a balcony that looked out over the river walk and city.

Check out the view from our hotel room:


Even though we were only there until the next afternoon, we got to....

meet up with our friend Chris (who is also a veterinarian)
Eat at various Mexican restaraunts (yummy queso)
walk along the river
Take a river cruise
Watch a serious lightning storm from our hotel room balcony
eat ice cream
and just have the most romantic time.

Oh...and check this out! Grant got to go jogging along the riverwalk early Monday morning!

I must say, there is nothing like a romantic getaway with your husband. Yes, this is good. We need to do this more often.
