Freaking Out

31 Aug

There is something about major uncertainty when it comes to choosing places to live for the next 5 years! Tomorrow is September 1st. This is the day that applications can be submitted for residency. YIKES! We have had our list of places chosen for a little over a week and are pretty happy with our options. But last night was a total freak out session! It was filled with what if this or what if that‘s. And as many of you know, those are nasty questions that can send you in a downward spiral. We eventually calmed down and came to the conclusion that God ultimately has control. It is our responsibility to place the programs on the list (a good mix of places that are on the I WISH list, the MOST LIKELY list and the JUST IN CASE list). From there God will open up the doors to the places he wants us to explore. It is just so darn nerve racking! How do we know?!?!? The possibilities are endless. But for now all we can do is pray and have faith that God is in control and will always look out for us.

    Yep tomorrow is the turn in day… We decided to celebrate on Thursday.

    I can’t believe we came this far.

    I found your site through the blog roll. Looking forward to seeing your take on everything as well.

    Good luck! I can’t even imagine how nerve-wracking that entire year will be!

    So much fun! Once you put it in God’s hands and let go, that is. Easier said than done.

    What specialty is he looking at?

      Radiology. He is on his second SUB-I with radiology now and really loves it! He’s still not 100% sure if he wants to stick with diagnostic or go into interventional. We shall see!

    So much uncertainty! That – and the Waiting for Real Life to Begin – is the worst part about this whole journey.

    But you guys will end up at the right place. At the very least, it will be an adventure for three years, and you can tell your kids all about that time you lived in this horrible place and laugh and laugh about how it turned out to be not quite so horrible after all.

    Hang in there. Match Day will be here before you know it!
