Hellooo from Dallas!

So we made it to Dallas! My brother, J and I left last saturday after J's graduation from medical school. It was so amazing to say the least. He has worked so hard and to see his dream coming true was wonderful. We had most of our families there and it was so nice to have everyone together. The graduation ended around noon and after lunch the three of us headed on our way to Dallas. We drove about 9 hours that first day and stopped that night somewhere in Louisiana. We got up on sunday morning and drove about 4 hours and we were in Dallas! It was very exciting and scary at the same time. We are living downtown so we found our building and signed paperwork and finally got to see our new apartment (we only saw it online before this). I was a little shocked at first; it is very high up and much, much smaller than the house we were renting in florida. It's growing on me though. We unloaded the stuff we had piled in my car but our moving truck is not supposed to be here for another 7 to 14 days!! We packed enough clothes though to last a couple weeks. My brother stayed with us for a few days and it was so fun having him here. He is a lot like me in that we like to explore and try to restraunts. We went to the JFK memorial one day which was awesome. Everything is so accessible which is very different than living in the suburbs!
J doesn't start work until June 24th so we are trying to spend as much time together as possible. I am so afraid that Im not going to see him and that I will be lonely :( I signed up to start crossfit next week and I also am really hoping to meet some good friends at work. I have to remember that it just takes time and I have to relax a little. It's okay to be lonely for a while. In the meantime I am going to enjoy life in my new city. Speaking up that I am going to head to the 8th floor pool :) Till next time...

Still Not Sure

So if the title is not explanatory enough then I don't know what is. I'm still not quite sure what I'm doing but I figure eventually I'll figure it out

So new things going on: J will be graduating from medical school in 16 days and then the day after he graduates we will begin our drive to Dallas where he will start residency!! We are both so excited but a little nervous with the move. We are moving from a 3 bedroom house to a 1 bedroom loft-style apartment. We are happy about trying to cut down on all the crap we have and only keep things we really need but I am a slight hoarder so it is difficult getting rid of all my "stuff." I am so excited to leave my current job ( I like the people but want to be somewhere bigger.) I am excited to get back into pediatric hematology/oncology, my true passion and live in a bigger city. Our life is getting ready to change but we are embracing it to the fullest. I am going to miss my family so very much but they are so supportive and encouraging about this next step in our lives. I guess it's not everyday you get to pack up and move 1000 miles to start a brand new, exciting life!!
