Married to a Doctor

Only recent picture I have on file on this computer -- here we are taking Flat Stanley (nephew's 3rd grade project) to see Avatar in 3D.

Though I can't recall all the details, I know I had a list of things I wanted out of life. I'm pretty sure I have it somewhere because I've been given the assignment to make a list like this several times in Young Women and a couple times in school. So, I know a list exists. I can't remember the details because honestly, I never really took the assignment all that seriously. I already knew, basically, what I wanted, and I didn't see the need to write it over and over and over again. But I'm pretty sure, on one of those lists, I wanted to marry a doctor. I mean, isn't that an essential on most dream-filled girl's wish-list?

I've since, as mentioned, lost track of those lists. I went to school, served a mission, graduated from school, met and married Marcus, taught high school, had a baby, had another baby, preparing for baby #3, moved many times -- and all the while, Marcus was working on school. I've been very happy and blessed in my life.

But, today...today at 12:00pm all my dreams came true. I am officially married to a doctor. Oh my heart twitters a little faster every time I hear Marcus' voice or I think..."Dr. Green." ooooo ahhhh

No, but really. Today Marcus is in Utah. He went down to BYU to defend his dissertation that he's been working on for the past 5 years. And he passed. And that does make him Dr. Green. And, it makes it possible for him to start looking for a job within his field -- a job where the word "salary" is included in the job description. That's exciting. And it's also really exciting knowing that all this work that Marcus has put into this has paid off. He is finished. All the stress, sleepless nights, hours of reading, typing, researching...it's all over. I am so proud of him. Doctor or not, I love this guy a whooooole bunch, and I'm really excited for him to come home.

Congratulations Marcus!
I always knew you could do it! I love you!

YAY! Congratulations to Marcus (and you too, Jenny, for surviving and supporting)! I think you should included weekly installments of the dissertation on your blog. I would totally read with interest!

We'll keep our fingers crossed that your employment search ends in Utah! :)

Way to go!
