Let’s Try This Again…

Since it has been six months since I’ve written anything on this page, I feel I’m way overdue for some blog sessions to start back up again. So much has happened in six months that it’s hard to comprehend how one person can handle it, truthfully. In a nutshell, Matt completed his three months away for audition rotations in Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania; interviewed for seven residency programs; MATCHED at his top choice in Dayton, Ohio, for Neurology (from the state of the Nittany Lion to the Mountaineers to the Buckeyes, here we go!); and have been traveling back and forth to PA to be with my mom who has been in and out of the hospital with Lupus complications. Oh, and in the midst of everything, I’m wrapping up my job of the past three years where my coworkers have become my family and leaving the state that I’ve called home for the past four years. And last but not least, WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOUSE!!! Our loan was approved and now we wait to close in six weeks 🙂 In the midst of this mess, it’s amazing how God truly has provided for our needs.

I’m determined to not let time get the best of me and avoid writing for so long. I need to write because it beats punching pillows or letting it all out at Matt. As we were packing today, I came across journals and quote books I’ve kept since I was 13 years old. They’re the kind of books that I read and cringe, but also want my future children to have to reflect and learn from. Reading some of the entries in there was what made me actually decide to sit down at 10pm on a Saturday night and write again. I will continue with this later, but for now, I leave with the human beings and small adventures that have gotten me through the past six months.
