game -set- MATCH!

So yesterday was "match day" for medical residents. This day determines the rest of our life. Ok, so there has been a few of those along the path (marriage, med school acceptance, kids, whatever). It at least determines whether or not we can get on with it.
The way it works for you all not in the know, Chris interviewed at different residency programs then he ranked the places and they rank him and then a computer matches you up together. HE MATCHED!!!! We don't find out where we go until Thursday, but the most important part is that we are going. Chris will start in July and we can buy a house and we are just extremely grateful. There was a lot of stress and much staring at a dark ceiling instead of sleeping leading up to yesterday and now relief has settled in and we are excited to find out where we will be going. I will be posting soon.
