My husband is graduating this Monday at Auburn University! He will receive his PhD:)
Friday, May 06, 2011
So it has been a very long road. I feel like we've been in school forever, but it was all worth it. My husband completed his PhD program in late December. He missed the graduation deadline in December just by a few days. He had to defend his dissertation before he was actually able to graduate. So here we are he had to wait until this semester to walk. Anyways, this year has been the biggest transition for my family and me. In December my husband started a post doctoral fellowship in FL. He moved to FL with my 13 yr old daughter and she started a brand new school while my husband started his brand new fellowship (job). My 2 yr old and I stayed in Auburn for a month by ourselves while I finished up my job. I loved my job and the people I worked with. I made so many good friends and it was a hard transition when I moved to FL in late Jan. I have been struggling with my eating since August 2010 and gained 10-12 lbs since then. I have no one to blame except for myself. I am in this terrible cycle. Lose weight and gain over and over again. The good thing is that I did not gain all my weight back. I am learning more and more as I live my life, but I have got to finally finish what I've started. I don't think I've ever finished anything completely. It's time to finish what I've started. My husband is the total opposite. Just like his PhD, he finishes everything he starts no matter what. I've asked him how he does it, he just tells me just do it! Don't make excuses...just do it! I don't know how he does it, but I guess he just does it! I'm so needing to finish anything I start. I think it will be very encouraging and therapuetic for me to actually finish something. To know that I can actually attain a goal. I have got to do this not only for my health but for my mind. I feel like my time is coming. My husband has completed his education and now it's time for me to reach my goals!
