Some 10 or 11 week grumblings and ramblings....

I have about 6 weeks left of school ( hence the title) and it is hitting me hard. I am taking 11 hours this semester. That is on top of working full time at the day job, part time (around 10-15 hrs) at the night job and driving two nights a week to class. It takes me about an hour and a half to get to class and the same to get home. I have one night that I get home about midnight. I know that everyone else seems to be loving the time change but I am not digging it. I should be getting out of class at 10 but my body is telling me that it is 11..... Which makes it feel like 1 when I am getting home. And I forgot to figure in my time for homework, like the two week unit of lesson plans, complete with quizzes and tests.....

I did get enrolled for the next semester and will be taking 13 hours. I only have 3 more semesters left but it is all draggggggging on right now. I always get this way towards the end of the semester but this year it is seeming worse. Maybe getting older has something to do with it????

I am taking a weekend class and am excited about it but would love this weekend to do homework and crash. The rest would do me good but......

My school goals for this weekend (Friday to Sunday) are
1. weekend class (Friday and Saturday)
2. two week thematic unit
3. class observation paper from a spanish class.
4. read 100 pages for Monday nights class
5. create study guide for class discussion Monday
6. read 50 pages for Tuesday online class
7. post answers for Tuesday online class
8. book review of a spanish text book.

Items 2-8 will have to be done Saturday night or Sunday since I will be in ANOTHER class on Friday and Saturday.

This is making me really tired to think about all of this, maybe I should take a nap....
I will be thinking of you all enjoying your shows and normal activities while I am stuck in a book! *repeating the mantra* This will all be worth it in the end, this will all be worth it in the end....

Woah. You and your zany schedule just totally and completely blew my mind. My husband is taking eight hours this semester on top of a full time job and wow, is it ever taking a toll on us. How you're doing even more is completely beyond me. Take a nap already! Or, at least, sit still for longer than five seconds.
