You know how you keep trudging along, hoping that eventually all your efforts will come to fruition? Telling yourself, "self, someday, this will mean something. someday the reward will come." Not just a paycheck, but a big "ahhhhhhh" followed by a huge shit-eating grin.
Today is the day!
Man-cub got the scholarship he interviewed for on Monday!!!!
All those nights spent nagging him to study his spelling, memorize his multiplication tables and do his homework, finally mean something!
Am I proud? Heck yeah. To see his handsome face on top of that strong frame, with the knowledge that I gave birth to him, whew, I am very proud. He wrote a great essay, cleaned up real nice (even bathed) and interviewed well. The Dean of Admissions called personally tonight to let him know. Wow! I guess I'll have to let him sleep in the house tonight!
Yep, even though being back in the office was an exercise in futility, to cap a day off with news like this is pretty awesome.
A trivia question: Who wrote Call Me The Breeze, popularized by Lynyrd Skynyrd? It happens to be a favorite for driving with the window down on sunny day.
