Here we gooooo...

Well, Keith is off to his BAR BRI class today. I may have mentioned before (possibly a million times) that it is 6 days a week. I am excited and apprehensive about it. It marks and ending to one part of our lives and a beginning to another. I don't know who this next 2 months will be harder for, me or Keith. I am thinking Keith, since he has class from around 8:30 or 9 until noonish, then studying all afternoon until he has to come home so I can go to work and then he has to take care of the kids. Yikes! I am worried too because I have come to count on Keith for so much,. I know I can do it all on my own, and I do when I have too, but I have been lucky not to have to lately. Keith was just a phone call away for advice and I knew he would always be home before 4 (due to the fact that he goes into work early just so that he can leave earlier). But now that option is gone. No phone calls, no coming home early, no family days on Saturday. Nothing. My new mantra is "make it to March." Only two months of hard. I think I can, I think I can!

Good luck to both of you. I know it will be tough, but when you look back it will seem like such a short time after it's done.

You will all do great and it will fly by. Good luck.

you can do it! but it will suck major hard core at times. so I'm sorry about that. but it will be over before you know it and you'll be like "In your face BAR BRI"
just be commited on being well rested, planning things for you and the kids to do, and having suprises for Keith.

It'll go a lot faster than you think. And just think of the reward at the end!

agree with shellie. it's probably going to suck at time, but i like your manta: it's just til march. just tough it out, little lady. i know you can!

it'll be worth it! you two are super strong and your kids are getting big enough to help out a little.

try not to stress (does that stress you out more?)!

Hang in there sweetie, you can get through this. When Mr. L was in his EMBA classes for 18 months he was occupied with studies and group sessions on the weekends. It sucked but it was so worth it when it was done!
