that Ben got accepted to medical school!
You know, at the beginning of the application cycle (clear back in June of 09) I tried to convince Ben to not even apply to our state school because at the time I was so lonely for green I thought I might die. I thought he would surely be accepted to at least 3 schools and that we would have our choice of green locales in the East. And all of this would happen by November.
Life doesn't always go as I plan, and I guess this was a good lesson. We have been waiting for months and months and months for word of acceptance and it has been a very annoying time for us. I can't say it was challenging, because really it's just a career and we have all been healthy and happy and this pregnancy has gone SO much better than anticipated so I really cannot complain, but it has certainly been annoying to wonder what our future holds.
BUT now we know and we must say ten thousand times a day, "I'm/you're going to be a doctor." I'm just so excited that I can have a plan now. I'm such a nerd... nothing makes me happier than a life plan. And so we are now (genuinely) excited to be citizens of New Mexico for 4 more years.
And how nice of UNM basketball to get really good just in time for us to be really proud of Ben's alma mater. :)
