waiting game

Well, the MCAT is over and done. Ben is getting ready to submit his application this weekend (just figured out that you should submit it before your MCAT scores get back, oops). Now we go into relax-and-try-not-to-panic-about-what-you-can't-change mode for the next month. Easier said than done.

We are going to attempt to forget about what the score could be by eating butterscotch pie tonight. Mmmm it should work nicely. Especially if it's accompanied by a little SYTYCD. :)

Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers, and phone calls today. It's truly weird to have this obstacle out of the way. We've only been thinking about it for 4 years now.

Oh, and do you love how I act like it's such a burden off my back? Because I attended joy school graduation and chatted with my friends about mini vans and made chicken cordon bleu with brussels sprouts and the aforementioned pie all day. High five to the man who really made it happen today. Way to be a genius, Ben husband! We think you are the greatest!

Congrats! How exciting for you both. And hey, if you didn't do all those good things you do his job would have been a lot harder.

awesome, you both.

it took me a really long time to figure out what sytycd meant...i'm a little slow.

It was meant for those only in the know, so as to not embarrass those who might not otherwise admit to watching it. :)

It is truly wierd. Just wait. I'm living in 'truly weird-o-rama' right now. Good luck- I'm sure he did awesome! 36 from Ben Tracy!

ohhhhhh man! Bens pretty much the smartest guy I know in Albuquerque so I'm not too worried. :D I'm glad you both can rest a little easier tonight. and I'm proud to say that I watch SYTYCD eeevery week. Next wednesday we have relief society and I'm kinda torn between the two. Religion vs dance. Aww dang.
