Welcome to Travis and Erin Bodeker's blog!
For those of you who do not know we are less than a week away from moving to North Chicago, IL (about 30 miles north of downtown Chicago). Travis will begin podiatry school at the Dr. Scholl's School of Podiatry and me, well I'll be doing something. I'm in the midst of looking for jobs. I think once we get up to Illinois it will be easier to find something.
We both are finishing up our last weeks of work, me at the Star of the Republic Museum and Travis at St. Joseph's Hospital. For the past two days I have been training the person who will be taking over for me. It's a weird feeling training someone for my job because I can distinctly remember when I first showed up and was learning the ropes.
This Friday my dad and sister are driving down from Abilene to pick up my car and tote it back. With all of the other forms of transportation up north, we feel we won't have a real need for two cars. Our apartment is less than half a mile from his school. Next Tuesday we will pack up our lovely 17 foot Uhaul truck, and early Wednesday morning we will head out! The first stop will be in Dallas where we will pick up my parents and sisters and then head for Springfield, MO. The next day we plan to be in North Chicago, hopefully with enough time to get into our apartment--an apartment that neither of us has seen yet but we have had very good recommendations from outside sources.
We are excited about our new adventure and will keep you posted!
