My Husband the Rockstar


I just registered my hubby to take the GMAT test for admission into Graduate School to get his MBA.


This seems fairly mundane--lots of people go to grad school, right? For us *right now* in our life, this is no small feat!


DH will be turning 35 this summer. We've been married for 13 years come June and we have 4 kids ranging from 3 to 11 years old. He just built our dream home (I really do mean *he* built it--he was the General Contractor and did most of the finish work himself!) this past year and we were finally hoping we were "settling down" into a slower-paced life. NOT!


On top of being a husband, father, and sole-provider for our family, he is also serving in 2 time-intensive positions in our church. He is the Varsity Scout Coach for the 14 & 15 y.o. boys in our area, and he is also serving as a Second Counselor in the Bishopric (a Bishop in the LDS church is pretty much like the pastor/priest of other Christian religions--so my husband is one of his 2 assistants).


Needless to say, the man is BEYOND busy--juggling work, family, church service, etc. So to say that it was a total shock when he came to me a few weeks ago and told me he was seriously considering getting his MBA would be an understatement. I've *always* wanted Sam to go back for his MBA, so I didn't utter a word of resistance (such as, how in heaven's name are you going to have time for that and where on earth are we going to dig up an extra $38,000 to PAY for this little activity???).


I've spent the last few weeks on-line gathering info and printing out applications. We got a bit side-tracked with the news about Sam's dad being diagnosed with cancer, but I asked him if he still wanted to pursue this idea and he told me he did. So when the screen asked if I was sure I wanted to commit to him taking the $250 test, I gulped and clicked "confirm." Here we go...


My husband is a Rockstar.

I guess we didn't have time in our conversation the other day for this, amongst all our other topics. WOW! If anyone can do it, it's you guys. As you always say, "What's one more thing, right?" :) Love you sis!

It is always so nice to read about husband/wives supporting each other. In the world we live in today, we need to be extra aware of how we treat our spouses. :0)
