A thousand thanks to a Columbia friend of mine for agreeing to be our agent at closing! We've both given her power-of-attorney, so she'll be able to sign a thousand times for us and SELL OUR HOUSE FINALLY!!
Unfortunately, it's not happening for another week or so, but as far as I know, all the kinks have been worked out. I'll be glad to get that finalized so I can stop stressing about the past and start stressing about the future (kidding! I'm not one to stress much about anything...)
Seriously, though, I need to get my head back in the game for this next semester. It still seems very far away, but I'm sure the time will zoom by and before I know it, I'll find myself back in a classroom. Again. I've lost count how many times I've re-gone back to school. I'm proud of myself for making it happen, especially with two kids. I can't tell you the number of times I've heard something along the lines of: "It's so hard to start back up, so just don't leave until you're done! And with two kids? You'll never find yourself the opportunity..." Poppycock. I've had no problem getting back into the swing of things. My kids don't slow me down, I just find better ways of managing my time. And I've been lucky enough to put myself into a situation where my school pays for itself.
So there. :) And this time, I may actually finish the masters...
