As a result of my failure of a life 2 years after high school, my poor husband is also getting the brunt end of the consequences. I am so thankful. And I am so lucky. For the past 4 months, I have been commuting an hour a day to and from school 4 days a week and taking 15 credits of upper division classes and while I'm there, he takes care of this pile of craziness and is also a full time student.....
Side note:(Last night, while I was at a Christmas party, Buddy was about to give her a bath. Claire was naked waiting to get in and just before he went to put her in the bath, she had peed all over the tile floor and was squatting down slurping up her urine. Hahahahaha! What do you do but laugh?!?! EW!!!!! So gross Claire! Have some manners.)
Anyway, I just want you all to know how great he is to let me finish school. He is THE REASON I'm finishing. I love you BuddaLove and so does Clairey. Seeing these two together brings me pure joy. She loves her daddy to pieces. He sacrifices so much for my slacker of a 18-20 year old. It sucks really bad and sometimes I feel like I've let a lot of people down. And I have.... but soon enough, it will all be behind us and I'll be blowing up a copy of my Bachelor's Degree and hanging it above all of your mantles! I'm not the person you should ever say this sentence to, "I don't need a piece of paper to tell people how smart I am." Getting my college degree has been THE HARDEST thing I have EVER done in my life! Including labor, pregnancy and having a child. I know I suck at school, but I'm doing it and can almost say that I did it!!!!!! And you can do it too if you haven't yet.
All thanks to Mikey....and of course my most amazing mother-in-law, Dody AKA Del Taco AKA The Dodster Roadster AKA Del AKA Dolores AKA Dode AKA Doe (She takes Clairey on Tuesday mornings and who knows how many times Mikey has dropped her off while I'm gone.) Thank you both of you and especially my baby cakes!!! I love you.
