MBA Complete but Thanks Due to So Many

As most of you know, I graduated on Friday with an MBA from the University of Chicago and it’s Booth School of Business. It was a long 21-month journey. As I mentioned when I first blogged about it, I would need a lot of help from many along the way. I received that help and much more and to all of you I’ll be forever grateful. Lynne, all I can say is Thank You.

Shown below are just a few pictures from the weekend. I love each of these pictures since they each represent a much larger story. I love the last one, all my stuff in a tote and packed away…….

Daisy: - You were such a great dog

Daisy was such a special dog in so many ways. In almost nine years of blogging, trying to write a few words to honor her memory is literally the hardest post I‘ve ever written. There is no formula for mourning one’s pet, so we do so like they were a loved one.

Daisy was such a loyal friend, a great dog for children and all who came to our house.

I have tried tagging Daisy in my pictures, a fraction are shown below. As you can see, she was with us through so many of our key moments from the last decade. This included being the star of this blog with her cute pink glasses. I’ll leave that up for a week or two before removing it.

Daisy: - You were such a great dog; we will all miss you dearly.

After Some Highs and Lows I'm Back......

Since my last blog post in January we have had a few highs and lows. Honestly with trying to get my course finished I had no energy to take the time to write a few posts each week. This is changing tonight and I look forward to re-engaging.

The obvious high was my MBA graduation on Friday, we all just returned home after a wonderful weekend and I’ll be recounting much more on that over the coming nights this week.

Many of you know that the low we experienced over the last two weeks was that Daisy, our loyal pet for 10 years passed away. She was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant tumor in February and her time had come. It was very very painful and I’ll also devote some blogging time to this week.

So there you have it, keep an eye this week…..
