Counting down, Anxiety update, and a giveaway to check out!

Today, Drew had his FINAL interview! Wooooo hooo! Thank goodness they are over because we seriously cannot afford one more! It also means that we can start to seriously put together our rank list! Rank lists must be submitted by midnight on February 24th!
Today is also five weeks, or 35 days (or however you look at it) from Match Day!

And I wanted to write that in the last two weeks I really have felt a great amount of peace. The anxiety has almost magically subsided and my stomach issues have calmed as well! I'm also starting to get excited about Match day instead of terrified and anxious. I can't exactly point to what has caused this change but I think I can contribute some of it to writing down all my fears, and perhaps some of it to yoga, and of course the power of prayer. I am so thankful that the Lord has given me a sense of peace and serenity knowing that He has a plan, and He will take care of us! Now I am just hoping this calmness remains for the next 5 weeks!

And last, but not least, Bloggy Blog Designz is doing it all over again! They are giving away blog designs and all kinds of goodies. Plus ALL entrants will receive 15% off their purchase! Be sure to check out their website (www.BloggyBlogDesignz.com) for more information, or to enter yourself. The giveaway will close on Feb 14 at midnight.

Having peace is good! I'm starting to get anxious and our Match Day isn't for over 13 months. Yikes!

It WILL all work out.

Congrats to your husband (and you!) for finishing up the interviews. Now all that's left is for those programs to fight over which one gets to have him. :-)

I hear you!! My husband and I are also anxiously counting down until Match Day, and I think I'm getting to the same place you are in terms of just letting go of all the fear!

I love your blog - I have been a "lurker" for awhile and finally decided to stop being a creeper and start my own :)

Exciting! I bet it is a huge relief to have all the interviews done. I'm terrified for the next year as it sure does have a lot in store for me.

Im planning to get maaried to a Physician assistant who's dream is to go to Med school. I already have children from firs marriage and would like to have children with him too. But I'm wondering how and if it will be possible to cope with children in a new marriage when the hubby is going back to school at 40 years to study medecine. Thanks 4 your input
