I have received official permission that I can do 4th year rotations out in Colorado starting the week after Thanksgiving. That is under a year away. Excuse me while I jump up and down over and over. I have a lot to do between now and then, so hopefully the time goes by very fast, but I must say that it feels amazing to have an actual date. This means I have to get all my rotations set up and figured out on my own. I have some time though to get it all figured out.
At that point in time: it will be 4.5 years that we've been long distance. I'd say we've earned it.
