Happy 2012! I hope each of you had a joyous/meaningful Christmas. I missed blogging but it was nice to just focus on family.
We traveled to see our families. I'm not a road trip kind of girl. Love the destination, hate the traveling. As the doc says, I can take a 7 hour drive and turn it into 10. Why do men want to drive without stopping?
On the way home, everyone but me wanted to do a marathon trip. Straight 16 hours of driving. Ugh! So at one of my stops, I grabbed a book on cd (did you know you can rent and return them at any Cracker Barrel?) I didn't follow Harper Lee's advice. I was too tired for deep thinking and snatched something with the longest playing time to make the trip go faster. A Danielle Steel novel. It helped. No telling how many times I woke up and had to skip back to find my place.
Speaking of books, 2012 marks a new chapter in mine. How far away this year seemed 4 years ago! The doc will graduate in May and we'll move on to the next chapter of our lives.
Where in the world will we end up? We don't know. (somewhere in the U.S. or perhaps stay put.) Feels very strange to be waiting on a computer to decide our destination. It's called "the match" for those familiar with the residency process. I would explain it but probably wouldn't do a proper job. It's complicated. The good thing is we know the Master Designer. Not only does He have a plan but He's the Author who writes the story of our lives. And that's the only way I am coping with the idea of moving again at this moment.
Jan. 23rd is the big day. We'll turn the computer on and sometime around 9 a.m. there will be a glorious little email. Just like a good mystery, we'll read the title of our next chapter!
If I'm lucky, it will be full of romance, love and happy times. And I'm sure it will be because I choose books that make you dream.
