On Feb. 2, 2008, I posted the following:


I am 49 years old and I go to school!  In fact, every member of my family is in college.  Yeah!  An educated crew.

I’m working on a master’s degree in counseling psychology and should graduate either Dec 08 or May 09.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

My husband lost his job 15 months ago after 33 years with the same company and officially retired about a month ago.  Strange that you retire at 55.  He graduates with certification in heating and a/c in Dec. 08.

Amber is 26, an art history major and classical studies minor at UT Tyler.  She wants to be a professor or a museum curator.  She graduates with her BA in May this year and is looking at schools for grad work.

Tonya, 25, Jason’s wife, graduated last May with her BA in Business from UTT.  She is enjoying working and not having homework!

Jason, 24, goes to seminary and is working on a MA in theological education.  He graduates in Dec. and starts his doctoral work in Jan. 09.

Amy 23, is a vocal performance major.  Objective:  opera or Broadway!  She also graduates this may.  Her senior recital is Apr. 6.  She hasn’t decided yet…grad school or work in the music or theater industry for a year.

What a difference 5 years can make!

Today is April 24, 2013.

I’m almost 55 now.  I’m almost done with my internship and will be a fully licensed LPC within weeks.

Rodney still has no steady job but does a lot of odd jobs and works on pianos.

Amber is writing novels. Tonya and Jason are parents of 5! He’s the children’s and young adult pastor at a church.  Amy is also a children’s minister at a church and graduated from seminary last summer.  Wow!  Lots of changes.
