Tonight I accomplished first semester of Master's classes in my cohort. It was such a good feeling to walk out of that classroom and know that I don't have to tackle another semester until January 13th. When looking back, there were some really hard times throughout this semester. Times when I wasn't sure if I could balance everything...but I did and I got through it. When looking back, I really did learn a lot and feel even more prepared to be in a leadership position. It seems that I was just getting the hang of it and now it is over for a short time. Next semester will be challenging, because we will be adding a new baby to the mix. I am anxious but I have hope that I will make it through it.
I really couldn't have done it without my wonderful husband. He listened to me grump, gave me hugs when I was in tears and stressed, told me "You can do this", gave up all of his Wednesday evenings to make sure John was taken care of, edited my papers, and was just there to listen. I know that sometimes he had to be thinking....why did we decide she should do this, but he never let on that I might not be able to do it. He is so supportive and that is one of the reasons why I love him.
Over a month of nice is that?
