The countdown is on

This is serious stuff...you see, he is using two computers so its gotta be serious!
I am soooo sick of books and building plans strewn around the house, but I am trying my very best to be patient and supportive!

Jaron has about 4 weeks left until he is finished with uni once and for all - he has been going for 8 years! For me, the thought of 4 weeks left is VERY exciting...we will finally have our Dad and husband back and will not have to discuss building plans and designs every 5 minutes! For Jaron, the thought of only 4 weeks to get everything done is stressful, but I know he will be okay.
So, when it is all over it is time to move into the "real world" - the world of a 9-5 working Dad. Although it will be great to have a decent, stable income, I know we will both miss the life of a student. The money is rotten, but the flexibility is wonderful. Never having to answer to anyone, taking holidays and going out for lunch whenever we want, having Jaron home a couple of days a week, etc.
When he is finished he will have three degrees behind him, so I think it is definitely time he puts university behind him once and for all!!

When he starts his own business he'll have flexibility and independence back without the lousy pay :)

8 years is a long time - it will all be worth it soon! Aaron was at uni for 6 years and got two degrees, so I guess it was worth it but at the time it seemed like it would never end. You are right though - life of a student is great, but having a steady income is so much better and not having assignments all the time - what a blessing! He will be so much less stressed. Very exciting for you all!
