It's been determined that we will not be moving to Rome next year! This is why it's good to visit a school on the other side of the world before moving! And while it would have been a great adventure I'm kind of relieved not to have to move the entire family for such a long stretch (five years) to such an expensive place, halfway around the world. A year or two would have been fun, but five years is a long time to so far from family.
I am excited to have one more possibility ticked off the possibility check list. We're a little closer to figuring out where we are going to be. Will it be Naples, Florida? San Francisco (oh my sanity!)? New Orleans? D.C.? Milwaukee? Ottowa? The list is so long (Paul applied to some 35 schools) and there are so many possibilities!
At least we have the continent narrowed down!
I know the feeling. My husband did the same. Unfortunately, in this economy, the responses were not quite as we had hoped. He does have one interview next week. I can't decide if I want him to get the job or not. It would keep us nearer to family than other schools, but it isn't far from NYC and I hate urban areas. Guess these things aren't always up to us though.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I think the tough part is not knowing! We're still waiting on responses because the test scores just got in, and it's so nerve racking! I love living in the country, but I'm kind of resigned to city life now. Good luck to you guys too! It's so hard to wait!ReplyDelete
Naples would be good! I live about 4 hours north of there.ReplyDelete
And Ave Maria sounds like such a great community! I would be thrilled if that's where we end up!ReplyDelete
Ummm Milwaukee! That's by me! Sorta... The Milwaukee area isn't too horrible of an area though, my sister went to college in one of the suburbs, the suburbs are nice.ReplyDelete
I'll admit that I'm (not so) secretly hoping we end up near someone I know (from the Catholic blogging world! That would be so nice!)!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that you won't get to experience La Dolce Vita. I'm sure God has a great plan for you and your family. It will be exciting to see where you end up (I'm guessing it will be as far away from Seattle as possible...) :(ReplyDelete
I keep reminding Paul that he still has to take me there someday! I would love to move to Washington! I'm not sure Paul actually applied to any schools up there though. Texas was another place I wouldn't mind (we have family there) and I don't think there's any there either.ReplyDelete
I am so impatient though! I just want to know, so I can spend the next six months obsessively googling the city we're moving to!
TX would be nice ;-) Can't help it I'm a bit... drawing a blank on the word lol. But I love it here. Good luck w/ all that, I love moving (well not the packing and such) & it just sounds like fun looking into all the diff places!ReplyDelete
I must say, it would be wonderful if you moved to Milwaukee... We are moving to Green Bay (hopefully since my husband has a job interview January 24 for the police department)and I would love to have you as a mentor in the Catholic faith! We will be praying for your family in finding the right choice.ReplyDelete
Is St. Louis on the list, or near there? We are considered "Rome of the West".ReplyDelete
Thanks LouLou! I would be excited about Milwaukee! I just can't wait to find out!ReplyDelete
I'm not sure if St. Louis is on the list. I know it was for his last degree, but the list is so long (for schools he applied to) that I don't even know where all of them are! He's applying mostly to regular law schools in the US and then (I think) to Catholic U's Canon Law program.
I am so impatient!
I did ask my husband and St. Louis is on the list! Now to wait and see if he gets in!ReplyDelete
