Like all good things...

Hey everyone, I'm just going to cut to the chase. I'm not going to continue this blog. Just writing that makes me verklempt. Seriously, I have a lump in my throat. Also, I did NOT know that verklempt was spelled with a "k". Ah blog, you're still teaching me new things.
Initially when we moved down here I was overwhelmed with excitement and the beginning of so many new things. Now that we're more settled I've had time to reflect on this big change, and this week has had its share of many teary eyed moments. I miss a lot of things about Boston, and undoubtedly what I miss most is seeing my friends. Mara, Brianna, Jen, Becky - I miss you guys so much. I can't even go on about it. Thanks for being there for me all the time. Becky you must have heard me say "I'VE HAD IT!" about 327 times about our crazy office. I'll never forget when we found the Sugar Bowl and you bought me a turkey sandwich. I miss you, Ms. Go-To Fix-it lady. And Mara, thanks for always listening to me. I miss talking to you just about everyday about everything. I wish I was there to see Harper and how big he must be today. I think of you everytime I drink out of my Boston glasses, and lots of other times too. And Jen! I wish we could meet for trivia and catch up on the happenings at MGH and life. I wish I could say the Leopard Snuggies went out on top, but I guess I could say we might come back someday and reclaim that 3rd place prize we got that one time. I know all three of you gals are and will be the best moms. I can't wait to see baby Charlotte and baby boy Felices. Brianna lady, I miss you like the dickens. I hope you and Boo love your new place with Whit and Rico. I wish I could give you a big hug.
I also miss being so close to my grandma. I can't even talk about it. I can't wait to go back to Connecticut to visit, for real.
For all the difficulty with the change I really do love my life in Dallas. I get up everyday and I am so happy to go to my residency program. I'm not exaggerating. Everyday I am grateful. I've wanted this for so long, and I can't believe I'm able to train at such a great program. I've learned so much in the few months I've been here. As far as Dallas goes, I love my life here with Joey. Leon has adjusted and remembers we're his parents now, which is a bonus. And I love having my little dog. Plus I'm closer to my parents which is extra wonderful. There's not much more I could ask for out of life.
So I'll probably have one more post to close it up, and that will do it. I'm starting a new blog that I'll link to next time, it will be a little different but probably a lot the same. I love you readers, a lot. Thanks for reading.
