Loving Summer...

Happy 4th of July...

Since we've been back from vacation, I have stayed in vacation mode. Lackadaisical and unconcerned, I went the entire day yesterday doing "stuff," yet still managing to be almost entirely unproductive. Don't you love those days?

I'm messing around with trying to make a DVD for everyone of our photos from Mexico... Anyone have any experience with the Studio Ten Pinnacle program? Progress is slow going for me because my tolerance for frustration is pretty low. (Plus, I'm a procrastinator.) I'm not sure if I'm having a direct problem with the computer, the program, or the way the program installed itself on the computer.

Other big news... I've been accepted to go back to school to earn (a second) master's degree in Counseling and Family Therapy. After this master's, I'll be able to work as a licensed professional counselor with kids and their families plus I'll be halfway to earning my doctorate and being able to call myself an actual "psychologist." Hopefully, I'll be able to open my own practice one day. How cool would that be? I'll be starting classes in the fall and can't wait. I'll be taking classes and still working full time, so I'll be having a pretty busy schedule.**

Other than that, not much is going on. I'm going to try to make the rounds to everyone's blogs to catch up on what all has been happening lately.

**Dave is the greatest guy in the whole world! He has been so encouraging and positive about the whole idea of me going back to school and the application process... How lucky am I??

Best of luck in going back to school. Psychology is a fascinating field, and we bloggers will give you plenty to analyze. :)

Congratulations - that is awesome!

Good for you! I have toyed with going back to finish my dwindling Masters, but I fear that my brain is too fried at this point?! ha ha

My best friend is a Licensed Therapist and has practiced on her own for years. Despite that the hours are late and sometimes drumming up clients is difficult... she loves it!!

Why not just have Big Daddy Dave support you? Why go through all that work?

Good for you! Very smart decision. Having Dave supportive in every way he can be is good as well. Will make this journey a better experience. However, all work and no play makes Violet kind of blue. I vote for a housekeeper, laundress and yard guy.

Rosemary, great ideas. She already has two out of those three things, and I can help with the laundry. I think school will be pretty unintrusive once we get the schedule down. :)

I LOVE me some grad school, and I love to see anyone so enthusiastic about beginning a new journey. Congrats and good luck with it!
