The Land of Enchantment

Well, the verdict is in.

Match Day has come and gone.

We are moving...... Albuquerque, New Mexico!

A little suprising at first, but after the shock wore off, we're both looking foward to another adventure and another new place.

Good things about Albuquerque
  • surrounded by mountains
  • inexpensive living
  • as white people, we'll be in the minority
  • still in the Southwest
  • on Route 66

Bad things about Albuquerque

  • gets cold in the winter (it IS almost a mile high)
  • actually SNOWS (will have to buy a winter coat)
  • job market is a little iffy

So that's my list so far. But I don't know enough about the city to make any other judgments, yet. It's going to be a crazy few months. Here's the rundown:

April: 7th--thesis presentation, 10-13--Mother visiting, 17--thesis paper due, later April---fly out to NM to find place to live

May: 7th--WEDDING, 13-14--Graduation, 15-21--Honeymoon, 31---my lease is up (must be packed and moved out!)

June: Early June--move to NM, 25 June---the Med Student starts work! (I guess I'll start calling him The Resident? The Intern?)

Truthfully, I'm not sure how we're going to get all this accomplished....but I'm sure we'll get through it, one thing at a time!
