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.
