It's finally here.
After nearly 7 years of working hard and hoping that the day would eventually come I am finally able to say that I only have ONE CLASS LEFT until I get my degree.
I can't believe I just typed that.
The class starts in 2 weeks and I will be finished on April 24th.
Then I'm done.
I can't believe I just typed that either.
All this goodness is happening in the middle of the extreme stress and uncertainty that's currently going on at work, what with the buyout of my company (Wyeth) by a much larger company (Pfizer) and all the massive layoffs and the not knowing for over a full year if I have a job or not.
Good times, good times!
I'm trying to keep a positive attitude and focusing on the obvious plus of the situation which clearly is the fact that I will never have to buy another textbook for myself, I will never have to spend my evenings and weekends doing research or writing ridiculous papers, and I will never again have to say to my kids' "Sorry. Not tonight....Mommy has homework to do."
It feels great to be so close to such a large accomplishment in my life. I'm proud of myself and I am so grateful for my family for all the help they offered and for putting up with the "time suck" for so long.
Its almost over.
We made it.
Thank the Lord!!!!!!
