My Master

November 18, 2009 at 3:12 am (Uncategorized)

It is true…I have a Master. My husband finished his Master’s degree in Educational Psychology a couple of weeks ago, but his revisions were officially accepted today! Halleluiah!! 9 years of post-secondary education,3 degrees, and a crazy amount of student loans later, he is done! He has promised me he will not go back to school until I am done my Master’s and for this, I am very grateful.

My husband is a smart, sweet, and successful sexy man and I am very proud of him! Congratulations, oh Master!

N.B.: I told him I would call him Master when he was finally done and I am very pleased that I can cross that humiliating task off my to do list:)

Changes

November 13, 2009 at 4:22 am (Uncategorized)

Earlier this evening, Brendan and I were talking about how many changes we’ve experienced in the last few years. We’ve also prepared ourselves for big changes, found peace with that change or picture, and then that picture was never painted…on more than occasion! I am struggling with finding a balance between living for today and preparing myself for the future (i.e., appreciating where my life is today instead of obsessing over our adoption!) I tend to draw vivid pictures in my mind or fantasize about how our future will look. You’d think I would have learned by now that it’s never the picture I have planned, but apparently not.

And yet, we always said that we were going to go to Africa 2 or 3 years after we got married. Brendan also said that we were going to watch the World Cup. Maybe it is the picture we had in mind, just painted with a different brush.
