FROM | US | TO | YOU

 Season's Greetings to you all !
Just wanted to share a piece of me + my boy's lives with you today . 
Here is the Christmas-card-poster-style-masterpiece 2 0 1 2 :

 
I do hope you were able to decipher the intended message . It took some family members O T H E R family members' assistance , like a little Christmas puzzle , to put the words | phrases together . If not a Christmas card , than at least it's a mind game . 
May these words be bright in your heart today . X O X O

T H A N K F U L  for Thursdays that are actually like Fridays . 
No work tomorrow for me ? 
Why ? 
| Shhhhhh . Because the substitute teacher system thinks I may be sick |
Well , there is a T R E E to be decorated . 
There are W R E A T H S to be hung + G A R L A N D to drape .
I must find an U G L Y   S W E A T E R
And browse for the perfect G I F T ideas which have not yet arrived to my head . 
And that deserves a hard day's work . 
Y E S . Can't wait for that glorious last day in this T H A N K F U L month .

Thankful T O D AY that the official 
M Y . B O Y . H E A R S . F R O M . S O M E . D E N T A L . S C H O O L S
is down to O N E  W E E K from today . 
I should make a paper chain . 
My boy ' s been quite busy these past two years now with every kind of science + language.I.could.not.possibly.begin.to.comprehend type classes + last January he took a big Get.Into.Dental.School type test + last June he Spent.Our.Life.Savings.Just.To.Apply.To.Schools + this Fall season he has been Spending.Whatever.Is.Beyond.Our.Life.Savings | my work bonus, I suppose | to fly to 5 of the 12 schools to officially interview + 
N O W
in one week from today , we shall hear the verdict . 
At least from these five schools : 
Marquette // Case Western // University of Michigan // University of Minnesota // Columbia University.
Yes , Colorado is not even a choice @ this point , so a move may be approaching | mixed feelings | , but time will tell .   Furthermore, to make everything just a little more complicated , some schools will interview in the Spring only, so we won't know about those schools yet + at least one school will accept applicants without even interviewing, so we may not hear from that school until later on in the 2013 year + everything can most definitely be up.in.the.air // bound to change if certain chances arose later , B U T 
N O N E T H E L E S S, for N O W, 
| H O P E F U L L Y
at least O N E choice will make its way to us in O N E week . 
And for that , I'm T H A N K F U L .
