I almost forgot to write a post about this, can you believe it??? Most of you already know, but in case you don't, I wanted to catch you up on Matt's BIG NEWS!
Matt had an interview for a summer internship in NYC with Deutsche Bank, and apparently they wanted him so badly, he didn't even make it back to DC before they called to offer him the job! He'll be doing asset management in the Americas (don't ask me what that really means).
This will be an AWESOME opportunity for Matt, but of course we will have to be apart for 10 weeks this summer (oh yeah, and the 2 weeks he'll be in Turkey...over MOTHER'S DAY, no less!). I'm (perhaps overly) optimistic that I will get along fine as a single mom for the summer, but I'm afraid Karol will have a rough time of it. She is very attached to her Daddy. Just this morning she was nearly overwhelmed with anxiety when he got out of the car to go to school this morning. I'm not looking forward to her reaction to spending a couple weeks without seeing him at all!
As for me, I think I'll be fine. I'll probably just work, work, work on school and the kids until he gets back. Plus, we'll be living right next to my work and Lori's by then and I know I'll have a lot of help from family while he's away. And there's always Skype and G-Chat!
