Hi friends, I just needed to share with someone because no one is answering their phone and the people I was with today just don't get it. My husband is in the middle of a very intense, very not cheap graduate program and he is working fulltime. I fully support him in this endeavor and we have made sacrifices in order to make it possible, but in the end we are hoping it pays off. The reason I am so down tonight is that he has been sick this week, he still worked, still studied and is finally feeling better (he did take on day to stay home and rest). Well today he spent all day reviewing for his weekly exam (20% of his grade per exam) and he failed. He got really mad and down on himself and decided he just couldn't go to dinner with my family because he would be distracted and worried about it. He gets to take it a second time if he wants. I get needing to work on it. I wish he had joined us, but I get it. Some people who were out with us were just very insensitive commenting about how you are giving up your life right now to do this, you're missing out on a great day/fun night out/etc. We get that. We know he's missing out, heck, I am missing out too!! I guess I just wish that people would be a little supportive. It's a choice we made and it means he can't do all the fun stuff. Don't give us grief about it. It just seems unnecessary. So anyway, that made my time out all the less fun and now I am feeling mopey even though I didn't earlier because it's all about choices and we agree on this one. Blah. Thanks for "listening".
