One more party

After three nights of going out I was pretty pooped, but Johnny couldn't miss the 4th Semester Banquet. It is known here as the Dominica Prom. I wasn't going to go because it was a whopping $125ec for a date to attend, but I had some good luck and my friend Katie did me a favor. She usually goes so she can write an article about it for the Ross newsletter, but she really didn't want to go. So I did it for her and she watched Daphne for us. I think we were both happy with the deal. 
I am no writer so I was nervous about the actual writing part. Katie is such a sweet heart and says I did a great job and suggested sharing the opening paragraph with you. So here it is, my first attempt at professional writing:

"As we got to the top of the Cabrits and came upon Fort Shirley my husband leaned to me and noted how the road has been long, hard and full of pot holes just like our road through medical school and that here at the end you could look back and see where we had started. How fitting on this night celebrating the end of a long hard road."

I feel like I spent most of the time taking pictures and taking notes for the article, but it was a fun night. It has been awhile since Johnny and I have had a night to ourselves. I did spend most of the time worrying about Daphne, but it was still a break. We had a nice dinner and had fun watching the videos some of Johnny's classmates made. 
Now the celebrations are over and we only have a few more weeks 'til we head back to the states. I can't believe how fast the time has gone.

  1. Tracy!! Your professional writing gave me goosebumps!! You painted a picture with words. It was GREAT!!!
    I'm SO glad that you went to the "prom" and had a great time. It's healthy to get a babysitter every now and then and go on a DATE with your husband, so good job. :D
