I'm glad the procedure went well, Stacy!
I know, dude. Making you wait is unnecessary. They should just call you in the little office right there and tell you.
Keeping fingers crossed Stash!
Sarah, good luck on your job interview! Yay for your DH winning first place! I'm sorry you can't take the course you want online. I hope there's other ones you can take that you're interested in.
Today I got an e-mail from UTA giving me my netID. I'm pretty sure they just give that to any student who applies, but it freaked me out, and then I realized they wouldn't send me an admissions letter in an e-mail
I'm glad it went well Stacy, and good luck with the final results.
Thanks Lauren. I'm totally bummed, but all is not lost. I can do 60 credits in general science starting in October, and possibly count that as a minor if I go on to do psychology degree later.
I hope everything works out with your studies too!
ETA: Don't you have an admissions interview tomorrow?

Thanks, Sarah. Doing the general science might help you, especially if you can try and apply what you've learned into something with the brain. Might make learning it all more interesting too
Guess I will be getting a word processing program today....
I just soaked some beans overnight, and they were still hard. I then boiled them for 30 minutes before putting them into the crockpot with the rest of my chili ingredients. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it turns out okay...otherwise we're having pizza or thai food for dinner.
Maybe we'll have thai food anyway.
Beans don't get soft after soaking, only after soaking AND cooking. Make sure not to add salt until after they're cooked or they never fully soften, either. And by the way, if you're in a rush you don't really have to soak 'em. I sometimes cook them without soaking if I'm in a hurry and they turn out fine, just take a bit longer.
Midgend, the results take 7-10 business days and the nurse said she's pretty sure I'll get the results by next Friday.
She said "just in time for Easter!" all excited like. All I could think was like I give a rip about THAT...
Thanks, I know, it's sucky, but I'm glad to have just gotten past this morning. I have this never-ending fear with early ultrasounds that the fetus will be dead (sorry for my bluntness) because no matter HOW emotionally healthy you are after a stillbirth and three miscarriages, you still carry the trauma of finding out there's no heartbeat. Those moments will stick with me forever and I just HATE the suspense right before you see the little bugger dancing around in there.
So, it's all good. To semi-quote Eckhart Tolle, "RIGHT NOW, everything is perfectly fine." I'm not thinking about next week until it's here.
Thai food - learn to make your own. It's what I had to do in Montana. My thai food rivals any good restaurant now.
Jennifer - it takes a lot of relearning and practice. I'm a big time planner, but worrying is nothing but suffering, and suffering is unnecessary. There's enough in life that will be painful and hard and terrible to add unnecessary suffering into the mix, too.
So my college doesn't do admissions interviews. I'm trying so hard not to see everything glass half full, but d@mn it, I can't help it. Nothing right now is going right, and I'm unbelievably frustrated.
I confess that on friday I told my older brother that my little brother is gay. My older brother is a conservative catholic and they are not close. But we were having a family gathering for my mom to talk to us about some choices she has made regarding her health and my little brother was bringing his boyfriend. I just wanted to give my big bro a heads up. Everything turned out great with all that. My big brother was very open and loving about it and I think some walls were torn down and my mom was really happy to see her two boys getting it all out in the open.
Now my brother is asking me for advice on how to talk to his kids (6 and 8) about it because he says it's not a subject that has come up in their house. Plus the kids go to Catholic school so they'll likely be told that uncle is going to hell.
I don't know what advice to give him. Because I'd like to say, find a new school/church but I know that's not what he's looking for.
Should I ask in the Christian room?
It's definitely a tough situation, but the kids should just know that being gay or straight doesn't define anything else about them but their sexuality. I'm not sure if anything I'm saying here makes sense. Maybe you should ask in the Christian room as well, and see their opinions. I'm sorry I don't have more of an answer.
ETA: I also wanted to add that I respect your older brother for accepting his sibling despite his beliefs.
