...phone call = 1800 mile cross country move...



so there was this one time that my pharmacists mixed up my medications.  xanax and ambien to be exact.  not such a safe scenario, ya know?  i took two xanax thinking my anxiety would soon calm only to be driving half asleep and half drunk trying to run errands.  well, my anxiety did pass, but the whole driving around town completely oblivious to anything/everything is not the safest way to spend my afternoon.  

this mistake was caught after i woke up from my ambien haze.  i drove straight to the pharmacy and had a little chat with them.  the head pharmacist apologized over and over for the mistake, fixed it and refunded the money i had paid for the prescriptions.  no harm, no foul, i suppose, but mistakes like that can't happen.  

so here is the good news...

in four years i will have no fear to walk into a pharmacy and drop off my prescription to my husband.     where he will methodically fill the script, checking once, twice, probably three times as a responsible pharmacist should.  

it's not a dream anymore.


 
studly has been accepted to northeast ohio medical university where he will begin the four year pharmacy program.  studly has fought tooth and nail for this dream.  it was expressed from the day we met what kind of plans he had for his future.  education.  a bachelors...a masters...a phd even?  

well, this university offers exactly what he wants.  not only will he get his degree in pharmacy, but he will also be working towards a phd in, well, i can't remember exactly what it's in, but basically he'll be dr. shumway and that is awesome.  

studly has had to put off this dream for a few years now.  there were surgeries to pay for, babies to fight for, boog to bring in to our home.  he has given up so much for our family, and now it's his turn.  studly gets to follow his dream, and ohio is his dream.  

so i follow, because i promised him 6 years ago that i would support his plans for education and life.  i stand back, amazed at all he has over come, dealt with, oh the list could go on and on.  point is, he has arrived, and he deserves a standing ovation.  

or just a little yeah! from your computer desk.

rootstown, ohio, i hope you can handle us.
