Is It Over Yet??
Well for those of you who have had the unfortunate experience of being around me and/or Kimball these past couple of weeks, I am pleased to report the cranky dispositions are about to go away! Kimball took the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exam) on Saturday and will take the COMLEX in a couple of days. FYI the USMLE is the score he will use to apply for the M.D. residencies and the COMLEX is the score he will use to apply for D.O. residencies. He feels good about the test he took on Saturday, the only complaint was that they started two hours late! Those of you who know will sympathize about the two hour addition to a test that is seven hours long to begin with and how any added stress can affect someone's performance on a test. He didn't seem as concerned as me, and through it all was satisfied with how he did. I think he was just glad that the hard part was over with. To celebrate I worked really hard to get the house nice and clean for when he came home, next we took Mya swimming at the aquatics center where it was fun for him to get to play with her after being away all day. After that we went and got a snow cone (Kimball's all time favorite treat), then he said he was craving barbeque so we went out, afterwards we rented a movie and took a deep breath and slept well. The tension has already been cut down by 75% which I am very happy for, all he has to do now is basically the same thing again, but it ought to be much easier now that he knows what to expect. Through it all I didn't take any pictures so the ones posted are some that I had that I thought were relative (Miss Mya is quite a bit bigger these days, and is now jumping off the diving board by herself). Thanks to everyone that has been so supportive to our family, and me in particular, as we have gone through this stressful time.
