I am screaming at the top of my lungs from Arkansas and Roger is screaming from the top of his lungs in Kennett, MO right now!

We just received his results from his 2nd try at taking the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager test. There are so many different dimensions to this test from chemistry to equations and stuff that is way over my head...actually, it makes my brain hurt to think about it! LOL!

He called today from out of town around 2:30 and asked me if there was anything in the mail yet. Of course, the mail hadn't run yet but I told him that I'd keep checking. I had to run some errands and checked the mail again at 4:15 PM.

Oh, my...when I saw the envelope in the heart stopped. He has worked so hard studying harder, longer and more intensely than even the first time.

I stopped in the driveway and called him. I told him that the envelope was here. He said "oh, no" and I asked him if he wanted me to open it (he's out of town overnight) and he said "yes, go ahead".

I opened it and told him..."oh, honey" and he just groaned as his heart sank. I said the letter says "Mr. W......(long pause)...Congratulations on passing your CHMM exam!!!!".

Ok...I know that was mean but I couldn't resist...he would have done it to me!

Needless to say...we were both screaming so loud that I scared the dog and probably the neighbors!

I am so proud of him!!! Way to go, baby!!!

P.S. is busy, life is crazy but I am slowly getting there. As for my heart, I have only had a few episodes over the past few weeks and I am so thankful. My new appointment is January 5th because I had to reschedule it do to a conflict with something else. I am praying that there will nothing be wrong and I will be given a clean bill of health.

Merry CHRISTmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. Congrats to your husband, way to go. Keeping you in my prayers, love you.

  2. Oh I am so excited for you both. I'd scream too but I'd wake the whole household up so I'm opting not to! LOL

    Love you my friend.
