Done with Interviews until the New Year!

Drew officially has 12 interviews down (and 5 more scheduled for after the new year!). I am relieved that he has a break, but it is also somewhat shocking to realize that Christmas is NEXT week! We are soooo not ready for it! Every time I think things are going to settle or slow down, I am mistaken.
We have been on the road every weekend (mostly for interviews, but have been able to fit a few visits with friends and family in there too). And during the week we are trying to catch up. There is always something. When we are home it feels like all we are doing is getting ready for the next interview. Just unpacking, doing laundry, taking clothes to the dry cleaner (for interviews), picking out conservative clothes for interviews, writing Thank yous for the interviews, and baking homemade goods for the family and friends that are allowing Drew to stay with them... and then packing up again!
Our apartment is a mess, we hardly have any food in the house, the milk in our fridge is five days old, we aren't ready for Christmas, and there is absolutely no sign of the holidays in our train-wreck-of-an-apartment!
Drew and I went out to dinner tonight, because we didn't get home until 7:00 and we had a gift certificate that was going to expire this month. We literally sat at dinner and made a list of the things we need to do before next week. What a pathetic dinner out! But I must say I do feel a little better now.
Oh, and I did manage to get the Christmas cards out this week, finally! I always under estimate how long it will take to get them done!
There is so much I'd like to update about interviews, but there simply enough time! Hopefully one of these days I will get around to it!

Don't stress about not being ready for Christmas! The important part is being with family - and you're already doing that by going out to dinner with your husband. The holidays will be fine, even if your house is decorated! :)

Honestly, can you believe how fast time is going? Here I thought the days to Match day were going to drag by. Apparently NOT!
And I really can't believe you guys have 12 interviews finished already... awesome :)
I hope you guys are able to enjoy the Christmas holidays... I don't have any of those excuses and my house STILL does not look like Christmas is on its way!!

Have a great weekend!!

Just wanted to wish you and the hubs a very merry Christmas Marissa :)
I hope you guys were able to relax, unwind and really enjoy it! The new year is just around the corner... it's a big one.
Thank you for all your support and advice the past few weeks... it is very much appreciated!

Yay for interview season winding down! The Match is super stressful (as you know) but then afterwards it's so nice to be able to breathe again! :)

Also, I'm not dead! Thanks for missing me!
