I am happy and proud of my current life-achievements, but I believe the best is yet to come.

Melanie.....I have recently achieved the same adult status as you. I bought a house!!!!


I just got a new job which thankfully gets me out of the oil field and allows for me to have a normal life. No more phone calls in the middle of the night telling me to get up and drive out to a rig. No more staying up 3 days straight or working 19 days straight. I get a nice 8-5 job with normal sleeping hours!


I got to move back to a city I love and have missed, and to top it off, I bought a house!! I close at the end of the month, so if everything goes the way it's supposed to, I'll be able to celebrate Christmas in my own home!

Haha. I've gotten over being frustrated and decided to start taking it as a compliment. Though I did look bug-eyed at the kid who asked for my ID when I went to buy tickets to a Rated-R movie. I was 26 and couldn't pass for 17?! Me = baffled!

I passed the Board exam for Certified Public Accountant at age 25, almost made it to the top 10 over 11,000 candidates who took the test. Became a book author at age 65; already published 4 books and currently writing 2 books side by side. One is entitled "How to be an Accountant in 10 Days.: It is like the book "Accounting for Dummies." Also made my two children with disabilities become Accountants like me - both works with Big Oil Companies here in Houston. My son just passed the CPA License last December 2011. Without God's graces and Mother Mary's love I couldn't have achieved these.

I've decided to move to Neverland for my next home purchase. Real estate agents are a little hard to find there, though, since apparently only Captain Hook and his pirates are old enough to create contracts, and I can't take up piracy since my knot tying skills are still a little weak. :)

There are so many "rite of passage" moments that are supposed to be momentous, or speak to us, or whatever, as we travel this path of adulthood. I was just sitting here pondering what some of my neatest "I'm a grown up!" moments have been.

Honestly- at the risk of sounding kinda dumb - it's a rug I purchased. Not just any rug. It was a rug to go in the living room of my first house. I bought it sight unseen off the internet, putting alot of trust in the digital image. I am awful at house decorating - my mom does it all! But I picked this out all by myself, and now - 1/2 way into my 2nd year in my little house - I still smile every time I look at that rug. I felt bold when buying, and when I unrolled it, it finally hit me - I freakin' bought a HOUSE!!!!!!

Hope you are out there having a great weekend!

Mine would be getting a Master's degree after having overcome so much adversity which I have described in other posts.

Ooh! The first time I booked a tour of a foreign country for myself and 5 friends while we lived in Austria! I arranged travel, hotel, food, and all the other stuff. It was the first time I really felt like I had adult responsibilities.
