After months and months of waiting… we finally found out that my husband has been accepted into a surgery residency in OHIO!! We will be moving across the country (AZ-OH) at the end of May. You may remember when I wrote about the hardest months of my life, while my husband was away doing audition rotations. It was so hard to have him gone, but I'm so grateful that the time away paid off and we got a spot. WAHOO! It is extremely difficult to get into an ortho program. I'm so proud of him! Although, I have heard from several wives that the interns work about 115 hours a week. I'm not excited for that part since I'll be in a new place all by myself. I just have to remind myself that it will only be temporary. After the 2 intern years it will get better! Until then I'll keep busy with my two cute kids. ;)
We will be leaving all of our family and friends in AZ (sad face) but are super excited for this new adventure! I have to say I am not too thrilled for the winters… but the kids are going to love living in the snow. I can just picture myself that first winter driving SUPER slow in the snow. Lol! I have been browsing houses online and they are all gorgeous!! They have so much character. The streets are lined with trees, which is something you don't see in Arizona! I cannot wait to see more of the area. My husband and I will be flying out this Spring to look for a place to live.
I hope we will be able to find a house… but if we cannot find a house in time then we may have to rent something that first year. Luckily I've partnered up with apartments.com to look at our options. Their site makes it much easier to look for a place to live. It's easy to navigate and they also have an app ( Droid, iPhone and iPad) which makes browsing convenient on the go. Our family will need at least a 3 bedroom and luckily there are plenty of options on there.
