These hermit bars sound so so good! Sounds like they’d be a good treat for the neighbors at Xmas time - always looking for something good to share. Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it!

Hey everybody, I'm back! It's been a while. Last week @elsa said there'd be angst and aggravation, and that definitely happened here. I haven't really been following my transits very closely, but for me it was definitely a momentous week. I could have avoided the huge argument I had, but I didn't really want to. I felt like a precedent was being set, and I needed to show someone where the boundary is, which I did.

I also got some amazing news last week. But first I need to backtrack a bit. A while back, my husband was accepted into grad school, and he was really excited about it and wanted to celebrate. I had just finished up this past spring semester in college with a 4.0 GPA, with hardly a mention, so I was a little miffed that he wanted to celebrate acceptance into school, meanwhile, I had been accepted nearly half a year before into school and was doing awesome, and it went without notice. Well, then he made a comment to me that really ticked me off. "Well, I was accepted into a very prestigious institution."

Ohhh, so we get to celebrate him and his acceptance because he will be going to a prestigious institution, whereas I was just going to some run of the mill university, so no big deal. Riiiiiight.

Anyway, it did get me thinking. I had enrolled at my school because it was one of only a couple that offer the degree I was going for fully online. However, after one semester and taking an introductory course in my major, I decided to change majors. I started doing more research into the program I switched to, and wasn't really thrilled with the reputation of some of the professors at my school. I started thinking that maybe I could find something better.

I started hunting for other online programs in my new major, when I hit upon something amazing. I could actually change schools and get a master's degree instead of a second undergraduate degree. The only thing is...the schools offering it almost all seemed out of my league. I started applying anyway, and also applied to the one school that seemed like a more realistic choice, in the hopes that I could at least get into a master's program somewhere.

Then it happened. Just last week I was accepted to my top choice. I am still pinching myself that it actually happened. I was satisfied before his comment, but now I am getting a better degree, and I can also stop feeling self-conscious and judged about where I am going to school. Honestly, I'm still annoyed by the comment. It was totally unnecessary. But, I'm also kind of glad for the push it gave me, even though it was a crappy thing to say.

I'm getting my hair cut, and highlighted - will be my first time since March 2020. And a new crown on my #11 tooth. Had the old one for 15 years - it was ugly and caught food. I'm going to be so Hollywood. Ha!
