C’est Fini (for now)

You may not believe me, but earlier this term I really thought I was going to have to drop or take a zero in two of my classes. I bit off a huge piece, taking four classes for 17 units. Most of you probably know, but 12 units is a full-time student. Plus, this time all four of my classes were level 450 and up. Tonight, a mere six hours before the deadlines, I submitted my final paper of the term. In the last week I wrote more than 10 papers. None of them were monsters- the largest was seven pages- but still, that’s a whole wheelbarrow of writing. My poor kids are feeling pretty neglected, and I won’t even tell you about the laundry situation. Clean socks are a hot commodity, that’s all I’ll say. Monday is the first day in more than a year where I don’t have an assignment looming, or something to register for, or reading to plow through, or some something that needs me.

I did it. One full year down. I don’t even know what I’m going to do with myself. Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow. Oh, wait… yes I do. Laundry! But for now, I am going to sleep and sleep and sleep.

  1. Enjoy your break, you deserve it!! School and kiddos is hard work! Hope your break is full of lots of fun, but some rest too.

  2. Love the photo! Congratulations on chewing and swallowing that big bite! Have a wonderful, restful summer!

  3. I know it’s not your purpose to be an inspiration to me, but you are. Take a well-deserved “break.”

  4. I read your blog from time to time, and cheer you on from afar, though I don’t know you. I, too, am juggling school and family, and it is tough! I could never do 17 units! Congratulations on another semester and a year done!
