hello there everyone! Thanks for stopping by… man, there are so many of you I can barely keep up! (kidding there…)
So a ton of people (ok like 5) have wished Dave luck on the GMAT and have subsequently asked how it went. Well, the “unofficial” results are good! Dave wishes he would have done better, but for not taking math in 10 years, I am impressed. He had to make a 50 or above in the “quantitative” section and he made a 55 on the unofficial report. I am proud of him that he’s actually finished it and applied for the Master’s. Its funny cause there were once so many people who told him that if he quit school, he’d never go back and finish. They were adament we were somehow screwing our lives up and “ruining” Dave’s future. (and by we here, I really mean most of these hate-weilding people really meant ME)
I’m sure that some of those people read this blog. And you know what I say to them!? Ok, so no one really wants to know what I say to them, but if you know me well enough then you can *probably* guess what I’d like to shout from the rooftops. So, here’s to those people- guess what suckers- HE DID IT AND HE’S COMING BACK FOR MORE! crack-a-lack-a-ding-dongs… Pending Dave’s acception to the program, he will hold the highest degree in his family AND mine. I guess to me, its kinda like all those people who are like, “I’m the first college graduate in my family” Yeah well, Dave will be the first graduate school graduate in his and mine. I’m extremely proud of him and really, its a little surreal, considering just last year I was still trying to convince him this was a good idea.
Updates on the girls!!! Charli is now walking, and has 4 teeth! Her favorite things to say are “Whats/Who’s that!?” and “Mama mama” I’d like to pretend that its cause she loves her mommy soooo much she just can’t get me off her mind, but really, she says it when we tell her “No no no no” She thinks we’re saying “Mama mama ” She’s pretty funny. She loves Tori and tries to keep up to her in whatever they’re doing.
Tori still thinks she’s 2. We try to tell her, “No! You’re THREE now!!!!!” as excitedly as possible- but she says, “Nope, I was 3 on my birthday and now I’m two again” Its pretty funny. But, when you ask her to show you how many fingers she is, she’s got that down almost pat- 3 little fingers pop right up! Recently, she decided that she like the taste of her tongue- OK, really, she fell off her stool in the bathroom and chomped right down on it. It bled all over the place(I’ll spare those with weak stomachs any pictures) and it still looks like hamburger. Tori is obsessed with touching it, which freaks me out cause who knows where that “super-virus” is lurking that kills kids in two days.
Thats about all our updates. I still miss Oklahoma and the (mostly) sincere, down to earth people that reside there. I have a lot of people who still mean the world to me and I miss every day. I know one day we’ll be rich though and I’ll be able to go home whenever I want! AND I’ll be able to fly my family down too- family that I’ve never been able to get to know cause my parents always moved us around the country. I miss you Carissa! (and Cam, Steff, Brooke, etc etc!)
Anyway, hopefully you and yours are doing well! Check back later for updates on Dave’s application status!
