It's all Coming to...



an end. Now that boards, at least the written part, are over (of course he passed, was there any ?), I have a new husband. I have to admit that I was scared he would never return. Good news...He returned! The late night study sessions have been retired, for the most part. I was pre-warned that there would be a little studying left for a few tests here and there, but by and large studying is almost a thing of the past. All that remains is the stress of finding boards patients, but luckily for me and the kids, that stress stays at school. You can't find a boards patient lying around our house. Two months from now Justin will graduate. Can I blink yet, is it really true? I am all sorts of emotions...somewhat wishing that Justin had three more years of school left, and not to go through the studying again, are you kidding me? It's just that three more years would buy me some time to play in the East a little longer, to do things I haven't yet been able to do. At the same time, I can't help but want to skip ahead 10 years from now and think about what my life will be like. I guess in this case I am hoping for the best case scenario possible, whatever that means...

I was going to post this video a lot earlier, but forgot about it. This was taped back in February and now looking at it still find it funny, but also a sort of "theme song" for all of our husbands, who have had to go to school and try to juggle being a great dad and husband all at the same time. Just when I am feeling like I have a husband back, my friend Vanessa, must be missing this guy. There is nothing like a husband's help. She moved back home to have her baby around family, so that she could get some more support from family and avoid moving all her stuff out west with a newborn. Unfortunately dental school doesn't do independent study, so her husband has had to stay behind to finish out the year. Can this hold her over? Would it for you?

I can't believe you have just 2 months left. What makes that even more sad is that we still live in my parents basement... so awesome!

I'm so glad you have your same old, fun, loving Justin back! The kids must love it as much as you do. That is so crazy that you are almost done. This year just went so fast. I know what you mean with the whole wanting to play in the east more...lucky for you, you have Justin's parents there. I know it's not the same, but I'm trying to help you not feel so bad. Just enjoy the next few weeks! I must say though, it's a different stress being in the real world.Nice, and really good, but different. Bills, student loans, and more student loans. Life is just full of fun right?

That is so exciting for you guys. Boards are over! Yay! Well we still have a couple of years till those days come... 3 years. Wow. But how exciting! So where are you guys planning on moving now? We also just got screened for all our dental buddies out here to see if we could be their boards patients. Luckily for us we were not. Well, I wish you the best.
