All smiles!

Oh noooooooo!!!!

Special thanks to my super cute nephew for his many moods being captured on camera!

Wishing everyone success in this years Match!

*Only 36 more days! … but who’s counting right? 😉

And The Grand Total Is…

3 Feb

So with interviews being done, J and I sat down to look and see what the damage was. Scared? It’s ok. It came to just over $5,000. I’m having mixed emotions… On one hand I am feeling very grateful that we were not THAT couple who ended up spending $10,000+ (sorry for those of you who did and are reading this), and yet on the other hand I am thinking HOLY CRAP! THAT’S A LOT OF $$$$!!!! [money, not a 4 letter word ;)] Just think of all the damage I could do shopping! Oh well.

J ended up going on 27 interviews for both intern year and radiology. Excessive much? Yeah, but what can we say? We like going WAY above and beyond the recommendations so that we can have peace of mind and sleep at night. LOL But in the end, I know it will be worth it. J will have a residency spot (dear Lord, PLEASE!) and the money we spent won’t matter because it will be in the past, errrr, right?

So now we are arguing discussing which programs should be first and at the top of the list 😉 We really have the majority of the list done and have both agreed on mostly everything. Mostly. There are just a few programs he wants that I am not too sure about. So I am busy on Google trying to research everything I can.
