My Dh let the cat slip outta the bag today!
His workplace has a RUNNING bet that I will not finish w/ my BSN degree simply because we are in the process of adopting a baby girl from Russia! Truely, they have a BOARD w/ my odds on it!
He (smartly) said he is not in on this one. I told him (quite verbally) to bet his money baby, its not going to stop me. I also said, I wanted a piece of this pie!
I Gently (LOL) reminded him I was on the flippin waiting list, had signed the paperwork and sent it back...and was going back to school in September. If my intentions were to QUIT, why would I go back to finish my AS and AA degrees? I also (gently) reminded him that I had a year to do nothing...and IF I got off the list I would go back. It wasnt MY DECISION to be on this list...its just how it is!
He ROFLOL... said his money was on me :kiss
once he saw how ENFLAMED I was... he knew I was serious. I was ready to go make a few heads roll up at his work...
Big Jerks.. My Dh was worried when I went back to school three years ago that I would leave him (due to that happening to others he works with, and this is what they alllll told him on a daily basis)...then he wanted me to make SURE I was going to finish...he didnt want me going, then deciding to quit school...WHICH I HAVENT!
My Desire is still there, I still WANT to become an RN...
We're just adopting too! Sheeesh.
Thanks for letting me vent... Anyone else out there have others do crap like this?

Hee. Hubbys... funny creatures, aren't they?
Yeh, mine didn't have a whole lot of faith in me in the beginning, either... actually, not really until I was over half, or nearly 3/4 way through did he start believing I was going to finish what I had started!
And like yours, he too voiced concerns fearing that I would leave him shortly after completing my degree and obtaining my RN...
Now I enjoy the luxury of playing that both ways... I get to remind him dailey that "see? just isn't so !" as WELL as reminding him, that "I've not had my degree LONG, y'know... still could happen !" heh heh heh.......
Keep us posted on the progress of the adoption ! So VERY excited for you ! ((( )))
