Summer Days Drifting Away

Today was a shopping frenzy. The kids start school on Monday, so we took them shopping for school clothes. We also got our hair cut, and we all went to Chili's for dinner. $1,003.00..poof! Gone. These damn kids are expensive. Okay, well....I got some stuff too...:) 

Things are about to get a lot more hectic (like they were EVER calm), and not just because the kids are returning to school. Samantha is starting back in soccer, so she will have her weekly practices and games. Cass is starting piano lessons in September, and Dylan will be starting kick boxing. I told Cass if she keeps her grades up, I will let her take dance lessons, but she will have to get there herself. Me, I'm just gonna be drinking a lot of Moscato. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about school anymore.

Holy smokes! I forgot to write about school. I passed my dissertation defense last Monday, so I'm done! I just have to submit the thing for copy and editing and then get it bound (I'm in the process of doing that now). I spent this week making sure all gazillion of my internship forms were turned in, and I applied for graduation and degree conferral. I can't believe how many hoops they make you jump through to get a stupid doctorate degree. They even charged me $250 to apply for graduation. My graduation ceremony isn't even until October 20th (by that time, I will be so over it). 

Now that I am done with school, I have to complete 1,500 post-doctoral intern hours. I plan to stay at my current work to complete those because I am pretty damn content there. Then I have to take two enormous tests to become licensed as a psychologist. I decided to wait until October before I start studying for the first test. My brain needs a siesta. (Knowing me though, I will procrastinate and try to cram 6 months of studying into 6 days). 

My poor house is so neglected right now. I should....clean it or something.
