I think I mentioned a few months ago that I had decided to get my MBA. Yeah, well, scratch that. There was a reason I swore off ever going to school again once I got my bachelor's; I honestly just don't have it in me anymore to do classwork, however pathetic that makes me. Which is why I am so, so proud of Mike for deciding to go back to school, because it's something he's talked about doing since we met. I'm behind him 100%, even if it means more housework for me!
Case in point: yesterday, Mike needed a few hours to catch up on his homework. We had just received an early birthday/anniversary combo gift from his folks--carpet tiles for our basement (Thank you soooooooo much, Mimi & Grandpa!). Did I sit idley by and wait for Mike to help me install them? Nope, not me. I put them all down myself. All 250+ tiles. (Actually, truth be told, Mike put down two, and his dad put down about 3.) And I couldn't be happier with the result! I still would like to paint some fun stuff on the walls--a Block "O" here, a Script Ohio there--but it's looking so much better. We have an actual usable room now; it's so much cozier down there that I added some of Aiden's toys. He LOVES it. Home improvement, indeed!
