Test Day

I'm sitting in the hotel room in Camarillo, CA after just dropping off Hubby at the Prometric testing center where he has undoubtedly started what is likely the biggest exam of his medical school career.  Two years of classes, thousands of dollars, and 9 weeks of intense studying have most certainly prepared him for today.  An 8 hour, 300 + question exam is all that separates him from freedom.  Well, at least until clinical rotations start in 4 weeks. :)

Josh has been plenty calm since last night, showing little to no nerves.  He went to bed early and had a good nights sleep and woke up this morning calm and collected.  I on the otherhand somehow managed to do my spousely duties and transfer all of his "should have" stress to myself.  I have knots in my stomach, I hardly slept a wink last night due to dreams about test day, and I nearly cried the moment I left him at the testing center due to relief that it was finally going to be over soon.  It's a good thing one of us can hold it together in stressful situations!  I guess there's a reason why he's the one in medical school and not me.

The test will soon be behind us and we can celebrate this weekend with not one, but two weddings to attend!

Until then, if you get a chance, send some prayers our way today.  I know I would appreciate it!

And on a side note, do you think I sent enough food with Josh today?
That's 2 PB&J's, a Power Bar, Granola bar, Pringles, Banana, Red Bull, Powerade, Trail mix, and Banana chips.

We had planned to go out to a nice dinner tonight to celebrate, but he may not be hungry after his test!

  1. Good luck! I'm sure he won't eat very much of it, but even if he did, he'd still be hungry from using his smart brain all day, and you'll be hungry from being so nervous! I'm sure he'll do great.
