Residency Interview Line Up

It’s been quite a long time since my last post. I was really freaking out for a bit about “THE MATCH”.  It was better to avoid thinking about it. Sitting at my computer for hour wasting time on looking at possible housing options depending on location we *might* move was starting to consume my school work time. Wedding planning has taken over my worries. My check list is getting shorter and shorter. My dress came in, save the dates are about to go out, and bridesmaids dresses are ordered.  All is right in the world. Except for my Christmas tree that only survived 48 hours before I came home from school with it on the floor. The cat popped her head up from the braches playing with the ribbons pouncing up and down excitedly as I opened the apartment door. Nice. Déjà vu. This already played itself out last year. … I have yet to fix the decorations. Instead it’s propped up against the wall. I’m using the excuse that it now looks “artistic”. Lol

I am very happy to report that the fiancé has a total of 19 interview for orthopedic residency programs!

Rank lists are due sometimes in February. This is getting more and more exciting! I'm drinking more and more Yogi Stress Tea! :) haha But in all seriousness ,  have prepared myself that we might be moving away from Columbus. Anger was a real emotion felt for about a month before acceptance set in. The fiancé has very supportive about me not wanting to leave my job. It’s so nice just to hear him say that he understands what I am giving up potentially.

Happy Holidays!
