Lives of Doctor Wives: hello everyone!

hello everyone!

hello ladies, my name is melissa. I am engaged to charles, who is pgy 4 in general surgery. we met a little over a year ago. I was living in buffalo at the time (where I grew up) and he was (still is) in philadelphia. while we were dating, I (finally) finished my BA in psychology... it only took 10 years... and then I made the move to philadelphia. we just recently got engaged (about a month ago), and now I have the monumental task of planning a wedding (in a different state) without the help of my fiance. I am a full-time nanny and I love it. I watch 2 awesome kids, and I feel very fulfilled in my career choice. it wasn't what I had planned on doing once I actually finished school, but it was such a good job while I was in school that after a while I couldn't see myself doing anything else. charles is from taiwan, but grew up in california. he attended med school at vanderbilt, and has ended up in philly. thank heavens general surgery is almost over, but then we have 2 more years of cardiothoracic to go. hopefully the next 4 years will fly by... anyway, I am genuinely looking forward to gaining insight from you guys! I love what I've read so far.

Congrats on the engagement! I know well what you're saying. I live in two states 50% of the time each and am planning my wedding (in a month!) in a third state. It's definitely do-able and it'll give you something to do with your time. This is such a blissful period - enjoy it!!! And welcome!
