Lives of Doctor Wives: Getting closer!

Getting closer!

I'm sorry I didn't put up a poll last week. I hope you didn't miss it too much!

We went on some interviews. Oh my lands, it was fun! They paid for plane tickets for us and our 3 kids. They even got us adjoining hotel rooms so our kids wouldn't keep us up all night. There was a beautiful fruit and snack basket waiting for us in our room. They arranged for childcare during fancy meals with the other doctors. Took us on tours of the town. Had realtors to show us around neighborhoods. Arranged a meeting with the school superintendant.

Then we got to talk about salary, signing bonus, loan forgiveness, moving expenses, housing payments, stipends, etc. It just feels so wonderful to be getting spoiled like this. There is a light shining at the end of the tunnel and it is beautiful!

I am so glad you posted this---it gives us something to look forward to! Especially the loan forgiveness part... ;-)

Thanks, Amanda! It helps to remember there are good parts with all of the tough things we go through. ;o)

JLee, he is in ENT. Thanks for asking!

How absolutely exciting!! Thanks for letting us all get a glimpse at the light! :-) My hubbys says that life won't be any different when we get some real paybacks, but I beg to differ. And we are going to be vascular surgery, so I think it will be nice not to stress (right now we can't even afford a normal 3 day a week preschool for our 4 year old...how many "real" surgeons can say that??)
