First thing this morning after feeding the T Rex, I checked my email. Lo and Behold - I had received the Lemonade Award - see previous posting below. Then Caitlin mentioned in a message to me that I had won something at Seven Clown Circus. I went over there and I had won a $20 Target Gift Card! Target is one of my favorite stores! So the morning started off good (last night - not so good - T Rex's asthma was flaring up - NEVER fun)!
I had made plans to pick up Cooper and his mom this morning so we could go visit Caitlin and Joseph. That was great fun, as always. In fact, I totally forgot the spider man was coming to fog our crawl space (T Rex Dad was not so happy to step on a Hobo spider in the middle of the night a few nights ago). In the end, the spider man forgot his fogging machine so he had to reschedule. (Seriously, repairmen and exterminators just don't seem to like me!)
As soon as he went outside T Rex had to find the biggest sphere in Ms. Caitlin's backyard. That kid - always has at least two balls with him at any given time.
Then it was time to check the regular mail. Lately it's been a dreaded event around here since it's seemed to be an endless wait for my notification from graduate school. Today the waiting finally ended...
My letter of acceptance to Nurse Practitioner school came! (I've been just a little anxious to get notice.) I guess I just felt like my life was on hold until I knew one way or another what would happen. Now I can start planning for classes to begin June 22nd!
Finally the much anticipated piece of paper that says I have been accepted into the NP program. I will discuss my school plans in more detail in a later post (i.e. how I plan on doing it with a 16 month old).
As an added bonus, my former employer sent me a $100 savings bond for being a safe driver in 2008. I used to drive a lot - seriously, a lot. Not one speeding ticket - nothing. It happened to arrive today as well!
And as I type this post, little T Rex is snuggling with me and watching Baby Wordsworth - a small reward for 100% on the potty training today and just being a good kid, too.
The sweet little guy snuggling with me - doesn't he look so mellow?
Much to be grateful for on this especially good day! Glad I get to share it with all of you!
