Bored with Boards

Tomorrow is a much anticipated day. John will finally be taking a test he's been studying for since our honeymoon! Yes, that would be since July. And yes, that would be nearly five months ago. In his defense, I told him I was ok with him studying while we lounged on the beach, why not make good use of time, right?


 
I can't imagine spending months and months studying for a test. I highly doubt I ever managed past a few days of studying for any test I've ever taken. Probably one of the reasons school and I were never great friends. But hey, I still graduated with a B.S. and a fairly decent GPA at that. Go figure. But that's beside the point. The point is, in 24 hours, the boards will be behind us, or him, for at least two more years. What's the big deal, it's just a test? Maybe so, but a test to tell him if he's got what it takes to continue on with dental school, and dentistry nonetheless. I know he'll do great. He gets A's in most of his classes. He's on the Deans Honor Roll List. And he's been waking up around 5:30am almost every day since we've been married to study for this oh-so-fun test. So, needless to say, I know he'll rock it. But hey, if you happen to be thinking of him around 8am tomorrow morning and wanted to include him in your prayers, I kind of think he'd appreciate it. I know I would.

I can't wait for him to be done with this test. I will no longer have to be a mute in my own home. Although, finals are in two weeks, so maybe I shouldn't get my hopes up just yet...

Good luck babe, you're going to do awesome!

My Grandpa memorized the entire greek alphabet on his honeymoon and my Grandma never let him live it down. So funny!!

But, I'm with you. No need to waste time! I'm sure he will do GREAT! Good luck John!

Good luck to him! I know how you feel. I think Adam studied for the GMAT for like 6 months before he took it. Now that he is in school & I am finished I feel like a mute too. Luckily he just finished finals and has all of December off!

I've been praying that John would select the right answers and do well. I'm sure he'll do great! Yes, you are a lot like your mother, I hated taking tests...I was terrible at them.

Thanks everyone... After six hours of test taking this morning/afternoon I can say that i am glad it is over. I'll let you know what the results are, hopefully within a couple weeks.
