Just Breathe...

10:00 a.m this morning was the first time in a LONG time that I felt that I could relax for just a second.

I've spent the past several months tending to a very full "plate" around here.

First was the WREB (Western Regional Exam Board) for dental hygiene a week ago Monday (on the 10th). I spent a lot of time studying and about $2,400 on taking the exam… Then my patient was disqualified at the check-in by 1 millimeter. It truly SUQUED – don’t know when I’ll be sitting for them again – first to find another patient – with 1 millimeter LESS gum disease… My only complaint is that the first time my patient was rejected they told me I didn’t have enough qualifying calculus. If they had rejected him because the pockets were too deep I would have scrounged around and gotten someone else to submit for my final shot. And there were some extra patients there…

Oh well. There’s nothing I can do about it now. At least I don’t have to stress for the next four weeks wondering if I passed it! (However - they were kind enough to inform me in writing just in case I wasn't sure... It was in the mailbox when we arrived home on Sunday night.)

I gave it to the Lord and there’s a reason for everything. So I just keep going.
The next day (Tuesday, September 11) we headed to Missouri for my cousin Margie's wedding. We took my mom and sis along - so the van was loaded to the gills. The wedding was very nice. I ended up taking on quite a few tasks. I love the whole wedding process - so I was in my element. Got a real groove going and everything came off without a hitch (except of course for the bride and groom...)

For their wedding gift I've made (am making) them an album. I got quite a bit of it done on the way up in the van. I had a real nice set-up in the middle row - I did about 8 pages. I guess I can never again complain about the amount of space I get sharing tables at a crop. I had my big CM shoulder bag to my right – open and jammed between the middle row seats, my AMM tool bag on top of a cooler just in front of that and a lap desk (that thankfully held a 12x12 page) right up to the back of the drivers seat.

I have photos coming from Winkflash soon – I’ll post pix here when I finish them off. I gave it to them on Wednesday night before the wedding and then took it back so I can finish it.

Homeschool Co-Op classes began this morning. The kids each took 3 classes and I taught a beginner scrapbooking class. I’m looking forward to sleeping in my bed tonight rather than this chair in front of my puter… I spent last night preparing handouts for the class since there just wasn’t time to devote to it before the boards.

So today at 10:00 a.m. (after my class ended) I truly felt like I was able to breathe for the first time in months. Now we gear up for the wedding of another dear friend the end of October. Need to get going again on that wedding gift…
I will not be appealing the decision about my WREB exam... Their website informs me there is a $500 fee to appeal any ruling. Good news? The next (and only) exam near me is May 2-5, 2008.
