Waiting

Waiting{we heart it}

"Waiting is one of the great arts."
Margery Allingham

If waiting is an art form, then I'm the world's most failed Picasso lol.  Tomorrow is the big day.  I find out about my internship placement for next year.  The question isn't necessarily "where" its also "if."  There are more applicants than ever this year, and hundreds will not match at all.  (Yikes, Lord, please don't let me be one of those people.) So I am impatiently waiting for tomorrow morning, so I can find out if (and hopefully where) I matched for next year.  (I know for sure that Mattie and I will be apart for a year, so there isn't the added pressure of hoping to be in Chicago.)  Up until Monday, I was doing fine with the whole patiently waiting thing, but this week, things took a turn for the worse and I've been an anxious mess.  So to help take my mind off waiting, I'm trying to cram as many little delights into today as possible.

On the list:
an early morning tall soy sugar free caramel latte...
whole wheat waffles...
a quick trip to the MAC counter...
a Britney and Beyonce playlist...
Chicago restaurant week at NAHA...
a glass (or two) of red wine...
a slumber party with dear friends...

Hopefully, with those little lovelies sprinkled in, the next 24 hours will fly by.  Because frankly, I hate waiting.  I'll pop in tomorrow morning with a quick update.  Thanks to all of you who have offered support along this crazy journey.  (And a crazy journey its been!)  Now back to waiting...

Good Luck!!! I will pray and cross my fingers for you. Waiting is the worst thing in the world, but your remedies seem pretty great to get your mind off of things!

I can't imagine being in a relationship where BOTH people are going through so much change and waiting. What a test of faith! Y'all seem to be doing such a great job handling all of this between the two of you. It is great inspiration for all of us reading. Good luck and remember it is in His hands!!
