On December 17, 2009 I was notified that I have been accepted to the Ross University Medical School MERP program. I am a 30 year old mom that has been working towards this goal for a very long time. My husband and 4 year old daughter will be moving to the Grand Bahamas and then the island of Dominica with me. This blog is about my family's venture as we prepare to embark on this wonderful adventure of a lifetime.

The first day of "my" vacation
First day of second grade!
Although I have been on vacation since I took the STEP back in June, I haven't had a minute alone. It's a small price to pay for having a family in medical school. Sure there are things I wish I could do during the day (like catch up on several seasons of True Blood) on my first summer vacation since high school but spending this time with my little pickle has been irreplaceable. Well I did sort of get my wish. My clinical schedule starts one week after my daughter's school. So for the next 5 days it is mommy vacation week. From the hours of 8am to 2pm I am all alone. Today was so sweet... peaceful, quiet, and uninterrupted. It was AMAZING! I must admit though a small part of me really really missed her about 30 minutes after I dropped her off at school.
