Grand Island, Nebraska

We are part way through with our journey to Utah from Kansas City. 12 more hours to go!

So we are going to be moving this summer. And not to Detroit. We will be at least 20 minutes outside of Detroit.

For my third and fourth year, I have to do clinical rotations at a hospital or with doctors in their private practices. We wanted to stay in KC, our first choice, but we didn't match. We didn't even match to our second choice, Palm Beach (which I am super sad about. I totally would have appreciated a year by the beach.) Nope, we matched to my third choice, Madison Heights, MI. The whole match process is a bit like a lottery, and similar to the residency match.

I don't even know why I picked Michigan. Something must have been drawing me there...

We won't be moving for a while (8 months), so we will make the most of our time in our cheap, cheap house ($381/month. Sob.) and hope to find a nice, inexpensive home to rent in Michigan.

I promised to get Eliza a new pair of Uggs when we go. So she's excited.

Jack visits Santa!

Jack and his little friend Eden went to go visit Santa. Jack was pretty excited about the bouncy ball Santa gave him, but not much else. Poor Santa felt really bad. Maybe next year he won't be so scary.

Eden wasn't a big fan either.

Black Friday!

I was terrified people were going to yell at us for being bad parents. I was shocked at how many other people brought their babies with them too. It was fun, but never again.

We're ready!

One more week! Chuck will be done with his semester in one week. I can't believe how ready for this I am. Chuck only saw Jack for about 5 minutes yesterday. I have zero motivation to get anything done but laundry is starting to pile up and I think I'd better start on that today. Ugh.
