Life and Some of its Perks

Just wanted to update you on the grad school dilemma. I have decided to stick with the current plan of waiting until next summer to apply. By doing so, I will be better prepped for the exams and the application process, I will complete the math classes needed for the endorsement, and the math endorsement will give me a better chance of getting into the grad program as opposed to the overpopulated English major. Math seems to be what will get me in the door and keep me there until a door for the English opens up, school and job-wise. I just hope I can pass the math classes. I'm not especially talented at math, but I usually find it doable with help.

Other news: The LonDolls are set to go to Colorado for our break. And for the hen party, we will be dressing up as an angel (the bride) and devils (the rest of us). The bride is pretty excited and it should be good fun. I'm just praying that the weather will agree with our travel.

Sidenote: I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from class to pick up a few things. While loading my stuff at the register, I let the guy behind me go ahead since he only had two things. When I was loading up my car afterwards, he pulled beside me in his and told me, "I just wanted to tell you that you are extremely attractive. You probably get that all the time." I, of course, smile and blush. I told him thank you and that I appreciated that. The first thing that popped into my mind though was that my husband tells me that often. It's nice to be complimented like that by someone, but it always feels the best when H tells me that I look really nice or when he checks me out. It makes me feel really good and I know that he is telling me the truth. If I'm not sure about an outfit or a hairdo, I will ask him and know that I am getting an honest opinion. No, I am not always thrilled when he tells me something isn't working, but I'm glad to know that he's honest about it. But it sure feels good when he is liking what he sees.

I know what you are saying about compliments! It so nice when other people say something like that... but it's so much more special coming from the one you love.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm glad you and your son got a kick out of my bacon debacle, LOL!
