Grad School...

A few years ago, my husband was accepted to Physics grad school at the University of Kentucky, which is 10 hours away from our families and friends.  We lived in Lexington for 2 years...and the last year was pretty horrible for me.  My dad had a heart-attack, and my grandfather died....and this happened within 2 weeks of each other.  I couldn't find a job, and I wasn't able to afford to go back to a university to  finish my 4 year degree.  The last winter there, I decided that it would be best for me to move back home and finish my degree.  I was going to move in the Fall, to start at the beginning of the next academic year.  Fortunately, for other reasons, my husband decided that it would be best for him to stop at his Master's degree, rather than get his PhD, and decided to move home with me.

 

Now, I'm back in school, with 2 years left until I graduate.  My husband was fortunate enough to get a temporary teaching position at the university (this is where he got his undergraduate degree), and will be able to teach for 2 more years.  After that...it's anyone's guess as to where we'll end up.
