Ethan in Kansas' mom shared a blog on Facebook recently that I really liked. It's of a family that recently got back from China, having gone to most of the same places that Jenn and I went, and they've got 4 kids now under 5. And we think our home is full! Our Eternal Treasures
Between the zoo, Szalays, the Riverfront Cruise In, and a renewed interest in the playset, we've been a busy bunch here.
In interesting news on my writing front, you may or may not be aware that I've co-authored a series of essays about the veterinary profession with a friend and colleague, Eden Myers, DVM, of Kentucky. After an unsuccessful attempt to get them published in JAVMA (they're quite politically incorrect as far as the American Veterinary Medical Association is concerned), we had a letter to the editor published that was an abridged version of #4. There was some apparent interest from Veterinary Economics, but that appeared to be a dead end, and after being scooped by the New York Times, we decided to get our thoughts out there and we published on Eden's blog. Not long after that, the Student Doctor Network found the pieces and published our first essay on their site. And most recently, Veterinary Economics has gotten back in the mix, requesting that they allow us to abridge our #2 for use in their Hot Button segment, so that'll appear in next month's issue. The publishing world definitely works on a different pace than what we're used to, but it's interesting to see how one thing definitely leads to another.
And finally, if you haven't see the "Nailed It!" board on Pintrest, you're missing a good laugh. After you see that board, you'll more likely find the humor in this...
