The heavens opened and decided that NOW was FINALLY the time for us to be done.
what am I talking about? Well.. most of you know that Rick has been in school for a (ahem) long time. well folks, the end is here. TODAY marks his final day of school! WOOOOHHOOOOOOO!
That's right. As of 4:30 pm this afternoon, he will be officially done with schooling and this time in 2 days, he'll have his MFA degree! How exciting is this?
well.... Let's recap here:
1) Rick and I have been married for 7 years. Out of those 7 years, he's been a student. Yah.
2) We met in college, which meant he had been in school prior to us getting married. Yah.
3) We have a grand total of 9 years in school.
4) Out of those 9 years, the only "breaks" he's gotten has been Spring break, christmas break, and 2 months one summer to work for his dad before moving to Savannah. Count that.
5) He's been in school NON-STOP for 4.5 years. seriously.

so are we a little excited? um.... YES!
Now for a little "bad" news. He has 5 interviews on MOnday morning. yes- 5! very excited about them. If he gets one of these positions- guess what that means? Yup... more schooling. why you ask? well- they are teaching positions. And even though he has his MFA, that's not exactly a teaching certificate. So he'd have to go back to school to get that sucker. Not too excited about that one. However, guidelines give him up to 3 years to complete it even though he'd be teaching already. So i guess it won't be so bad. just thought that the whole school thing would REALLY be over. oh well.... we'd totally do it if it meant a job and a salary WITH BENEFITS! :)

Ok- so now that all that's been said.. i have a contest I want you to check out real quick. The Nook is sponsoring it and there's a nice $75 gift certificate involved for the winner.
