A big sigh of relief...

I'M DONE!!!! Woo-woo, yeah, that's right, uh-huh, uh-huh (chanted as I dance around). As of yesterday at 12:44pm I had officially completed all of the requirements for my masters degree in Social Work. So what am I going to do now? I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but I'm going to Disney World. Okay, not really Disney World, but we're going to Florida for a week. We leave next Saturday, the day after graduation. We are all VERY excited! Mark needs a vacation as much, if not more, than I do.

Along those lines, I want to publicly thank my husband for the love and support that he has given me. A lot of people were supportive of me throughout completing this degree. My dad gave me hand-me-down text books and his notes from taking the comprehensive exam three years earlier. My mom constantly pushed me to keep going even though certain things were really hard to deal with. But I literally could not have done this without Mark. He was supportive the entire time. He did not complain when I had to work all evening on a paper. He strongly encouraged me not to procrastinate. He didn't bat an eye when we paid his sister extra for watching Gabriel on a day off so I could do school work (which thankfully only happened twice). He was wonderful. I love you, Mark. I feel like this is OUR success. Thank you.
