Ok...its official! We are MOVVVVVVVINGGGGGG!!! Not until March/April though. Heres the deal. Next year I have to do my out of town rotations for Anesthesia. Basically we do 13 one month rotations...and at the end of each month we have a weekend to move to the next city and start back at the new hospital Monday. We have rotations set up everywhere: St Louis, Kansas CIty, Houston, Atlanta, Ohio, Alabama, New MExico, etc. So as you can see.....thats a lot of moving and driving and what not. Heres the other kicker....only about 1/2 of them provide housing. Most of them you have to go on craigslist and find somewhere to live for a month. ($$$$). Paying double rent while paying to travel across the country isn't exactly the easiest thing for a grad student. With there being 12 rotations set up in Atlanta...it only makes sense that we should move there for a few years. (Theres 4-5 in Savannah but tons of competition since everyone lives here now..so I could probably only get 2 months in Savannah) So after a little research, we decided Suwanee, GA is the place to be for the next few years. Now that we have made the decision...I'm SUPER excited! I really think its somewhere I could raise my family. It will be tough being away from home (Cleveland)...but it was rated #10 in the top places to live by money magazine and top places to raise a family. Pretty cool huh? So for my first 6 rotations I will try to get them in Ohio where I can stay with family and in Savannah where I can be with my hubby. Then the last 7 will be in the Atlanta/Gainesville area in which I will NOT be paying double rent or being away from my hubby for 7 monhts. SAweEEEEEEEET! (IN addition I will NOT be dealing with snow either :) I'm sure my family and friends in Ohio aren't exactly enthrawled with this decision...but its what's best for now. I will probably take a sign on bonus for 2-3 years...and we can reevaluate at that time if Suwanee is the place for us...and if we should buy a house there. (By then we will probably be dealing with lil runninduffs if you know what I mean) haha
So thats the big news around this place. Other than that...I'm just trying to go force myself to go to the pool....eeeeeeeeeek! 1..2...3...GO!
