Alternatively titled:  About Rebekah's 4th Birthday
Alternatively titled:  About Bollywood Fantastic-ness
Alternatively titled  About realizing it's not normal to say goodbye to all of your everything all at once.

And that's in a nutshell where I am.

So, I'll keep Finishing Grad School until later.  Suffice it to say, my final presentation on PTSD in Children went well -- except for that little part about where my slide about the joke re: p=0.053 did not go well because nobody understood it.

Really?  Come on.  A sufficient P Value is 0.05 and below.  Get it?  No?  Ok.  I am a geek!

Graduation is on Saturday.  We'll chat about it more then.  It is not like graduating from undergrad.  Not at all.  Not even a little.  Not for me.

Sister Cheryl and I took a Bollywood Dancing Class Downtown Portland last week.  I shook it like nobody can shake it.  If this therapist thing falls through, I think I can make a living out of it ...


Where I'm headed with this new venture:

It was also uber important to connect with my goddaughter on her 4th Birthday (especially since I'll be leaving the weekend of her party!).  Rebekah was uber excited about the monkeys.  I mean, uber, uber excited.  As in:  Where are the monkeys?  Are the monkeys soon?  Are we going to see the monkeys?  Look at that monkey!  Why is that monkey doing that?  Why is the monkey sleeping?  The monkey is looking at me!  Can we see the monkeys again?

Love her.

Love them all.  In this one, Rebekah's "Cheese Noodles" turns into something like: "Cheese Nooooooooooooooodles!"

And then there are things I don't have pictures of:  Lab Parties for all of us graduating with Masters or getting into Ph.D. programs, last coffee dates with friends and packing up my house.

And I thought there was going to be all this blank space in my planner ....

    I love cheese noodles and cheese doodles. Super proud of you and so thankful we had that opportunity to go. Rebekah said she'd like to go again when she is older. Maybe Shoes can go with us then.

    I'm sure Shoes will go with us - we just have to make sure it's cold and rainy! ;) Had so much fun with you guys!
