(unlikely dreams)

Well, I just finished my Duke supplemental application -- haven't turned it in yet, though; I'm still in the stage of letting it 'marinate' to make sure I'm satisfied with everything I've done. We're leaving for Charleston in an hour, as soon as L gets home from teaching, so if I still like it when we get back on Sunday, I'll hit the magic button.

I also got an email from Pacific today saying that they had received my CASPA, so my application is complete. Interview decisions will be emailed to us. Cross your fingers... I know it's the 'dark horse' of the pile, since it's on the West Coast, but something about that school is really drawing me to it. We'll see. I might get an interview and totally hate it. Who knows?

Speaking of visiting schools -- I'll be at MUSC tomorrow as part of our Charleston trip. I'm excited to see a school I've never been to or even seen in person. Better think of some intelligent questions to ask...

Not much else new in my life except for the fact that I will not in fact be bouncing from doctor to doctor over the coming two weeks... I'll be doing nurse visits and camp forms. Every day. And I've peeked at the prescheduled appointments, so I can say with certainty that I will be single-handedly vaccinating approximately half the kindergarten population in Chapel Hill. Sigh. Somewhere, there is an army of five-year-olds out for my blood.

Guess it's time to start loading up the car. See you all in a few days!
