As many of you have heard, Adam got a job offer at the practice he was most hoping to work for. He is joining Rainier Anesthesia in Puyallup shortly after he graduates. If all goes as planned, we should be home at the beginning of July. It does not seem like that long ago we were making similar plans and arrangements to move to Albany. It's truly amazing how quickly time goes by. Yet, it seems like a long-ass time ago that he began the process of becoming a doctor! Haha! I am just so impressed with his perseverance and dedication in accomplishing this goal. After he got off the phone, we just sort of looked at each other, eyes welling up at the bewilderment of having survived this journey. And not only did we survive, we're actually still happy. Mind-blown.
The next few months will be busy as we make the transition back to the northwest. We haven't nailed down where we want to find a rental house, though we've received many opinions! I've already had one emotional breakdown and I'm sure I'll have more. I'm the stress-case of the family and fortunately have Adam to bring me back to reality. I wish I could just snap my fingers and all of a sudden our house would be packed up and moved for us! Oh well... it will get done and all will work out. I'm really looking forward to another cross-country road trip. We're thinking of heading a little further north and then driving west. I'd love to see some of the Great Lakes and parts of Canada.
I'll do my best to keep you updated. Somehow, I'd still like to go on a few more Northeast adventures. I'm guessing once we get the house on the market in April, we'll get a chance to do some of that. We'll need to spend as much time out of the house as possible so the kiddos don't mess it up! That is going to be a serious challenge! Wish us luck and we'll see you soon!
