WIN Reflection 3/5/14

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Good afternoon! Hope all is well with everyone. I have been extremely stressed lately and everything keeps going down hill for a while but we are headed back up :) Yesterday on the way to take the kids to school my car started overheating. I pulled over and immediately had an emotional breakdown. I was totally inconsolable when I got home. Luckily I was just around the corner. I attempted to take the mustang but I just spun down our street with all the left over ice. I have no idea how Jason drives that thing! I just knew too that I was really upset and despite the rest of the roads being ok I was in no shape to drive or work. So the kids and I stayed home. Jason changed the thermostat housing and there is still an issue with a sensor but my car is drivable right now. Heat is working really good now too. I took the evening off school also so I can concentrate on the GMAT. I went to bed at a decent time, got up, weighed in, ate breakfast and looked over a few more things for the GMAT and was out the door by 7am. It was as awful as the first time. That test is just really hard! So after tons of studying, tons of stress and $500 later I FINALLY PASSED THE GMAT! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Such a big weight off my shoulders. So now I just wait until registration starts in a couple weeks and my official acceptance letter for grad school and I AM OFFICIALLY DONE AND A GRAD STUDENT! Oh I am super happy. Now I am still going to be busy but I don't think I will be as stressed out! Tomorrow we go see a house. We drove by it this weekend and the outside is really cute. In a country setting going towards the kids school, on an acre with a fenced in backyard. Corn fields in back and on one side and another house on the other side. THe owners did a job with painting and painted every room dark horrible colors so no issue there, I expected to paint. I am worried about the size of the bathrooms and the kitchen. Hopefully its just the pics online. It is supposed to have a finished basement but no pics online so we can't wait to check it out!

Today I weighed in and I stayed the same. Considering how emotional and stressed I have been I am ecstatic! I was expecting a gain! I will take it! Now maybe I will start losing since I won't be half as upset as I have been.

Well off to get prepared for the house tomorrow with questions and then me and the kids are going to relax and watch a movie. Tomorrow I will resume my homework!

Have a great night!

    Congrats! That's got to be a huge relief.

I hope this house is what you're looking for. It sounds like the outside is perfect, I just hope the inside is nice too.
