I just took a deep breath. It feels so good to have the last major pressure off my shoulders. We just got back from the Awards Luncheon where DGS, Andrew, received his scholarship. I’m so incredibly proud of him! He did a great job with his speech and received a standing ovation which got me all choked up and teary eyed. Here’s a picture of him with his two favorite counselors. (No wonder they’re favorites…talk about a young man’s dream!)
And here’s a picture of DH and I with Andrew outside the country club.
I’m sure he likes the looks of Michelle and Jamie a lot better but they don’t love him as much as we do. I was so proud of him. People laughed at the right times during his speech and clapped at the right times and he was really shocked and pleased at the standing ovation. One of the most wonderful things about him is that he doesn’t have a clue about how wonderful he is.
Okay…enough proud grandma talk for now. Moving along….
I feel so good. This banquet was the last heavy-duty burden on me and I feel like I can finally relax. Even though I have to start teaching summer school on Monday, I finally feel free. Summer school is only four days from 7:30 to 12:00 and I’ve taught math so many years, I can do it in my sleep. Maybe now I can start to think about eating well and exercising. The results of DH’s tests show he has blockage in both legs in the calf area. That’s not good. The man is heading for a stroke (or worse) if he doesn’t start taking better care of himself. We’ve been together essentially all our lives and I don’t know what I’d do if anything bad happened to him. And…you can see from the picture that I haven’t been taking very good care of myself either. Time to get back on track.
Oh! BTW…I won $400.00 at the casino the other night and that more than made up for the late arrival and early departure!
