Longtime readers may recall that the Lovely Mrs. Sneed earned her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy this past May, culminating something like four years of hard work. All while still being a full-time, no, more than full-time, pediatric nurse. The next step on her road to becoming an actual therapist involved getting a license from the State of Arizona. In order to get her license, she had to take an assessment to be sure that those long years in school weren't spent just hanging out, drinking beer and cutting class. Evidently, learning is high on the State's agenda. Throughout this process, I have been especially supportive, even if I say so myself. How specifically, you might ask? Well, let me tell you. During the school phase of this process we had about one million conversations like this: Her: I can't do this, I don't want to do this, I'm quitting. Me: Yes you can, yes you do, no you're not. Then came the run up to the test. Months and months of studying, day and night. Her: I am going to fail this test. Me: No you're not. Her: How do you know? Me: I know. Her: You have no idea. Then, she took the test. Her: I probably failed. Me: No you didn't. Her: That's false reassurance. Me: That's psycho mumbo jumbo, you passed. Anyway, she passed with flying colors. She got the letter today. Mrs. Sneed is the smartest and most determined person I know. Congratulations to her! Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

That lady in the red sweater sounds pretty damn amazing.

Mrs. S., my heartfelt congratulations, and I hope Mr. S. gives you lots of kisses in between disagreeing with you in such an agreeable way!

Congrats to Mrs Sneed!

Merle, I like the way you develop a simple assurance about things and stick with it. You did the same thing with the election. Having a rock like you around would be a good thing.

There's nothing like a supportive husband to boost one's ego! Do you cook for her too? :)

Hey Merle, you were in my dream last night. As it turned out, your name was really Arthur. I was moving through a nasty divorce in the dream. You stood by and offered cups of coffee, told me to just sit around for awhile on the "comfortable upholstery" in your living room. You were so sweet. Thanks!

Congratulations to you both. This is cause for all kinds of celebrations and special gifts.

The world needs more of what she got schooled in.

I never doubted for minute that Mrs Sneed wouldn't accomplish what she set out to achieve. Well done to the Lovely Mrs S.
