Days 37-40 My Mind is a spinning

Monday, October 08, 2012

Wow last week was crazy and this week will be much of the same. Doing tons of homework, trying to fit in exercise and housework in. I can't wait for this semester to be over with. I am definitely going to slow down next semester.

I did get a lot of walking in over the weekend, so I got lots a FM in. I know I won't be able to do it during the week, but I will do my best!

Evie just got invited to her next sleepover. WHich is great but I have never met the parents. I do know a couple of the girls that are going but all the rest were in different classes last year so I never got to meet any of them. The party is before her class halloween party so I won't be able to meet the mom there. I am thinking of seeing if she wants to meet one day after school and maybe take the kids to Mcdonalds or something.

Well I hope everyone has a great week!

    You're such a good, concientious mom--that's fantastic. If she can't meet, you can at least have a long phone conversation and let her know your expectations. :)

Day 34, 35, 36 blah blah blah

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Haven't been online much. Dealing with headaches, homework and sleep deprivation. Going to the doctor on the 19th to discuss sleep, headaches and how I feel shakey and nausaus way too often. Think I should be tested for hypoglycemia. Taking Evie to school then me and Bubbie hitting the store, need to get them a few sweaters and sweatoufits. Today is going to be 77 then drop to the 50s how fun! lol Only in Michigan :).

SHort day at school then must get the kitchen cleaned and get my homework done. Going to my FIL this weekend for his bday and I need to grab my halloween decor. Only bad part of having a small house, all my storage is an hour away. I was so excited to see I got a 91 on my spanish test that I freaked out about!

Down a lb this week so that was a nice turn around :) Hope that it continues! Still not going at my full potential but this semester is really kicking my butt. Def going to slow down next semester. Can't continue like this, just too much on me.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Days 31-33/I MADE IT!!!

Monday, October 01, 2012

I made it thru the 1st spanish quiz and it was not that bad. Now that I know what to expect I think I will be just fine!

It was a hectic weekend around here. My FIL came by Saturday and started putting new instulation in the attic. I had to take Bella to the vet Saturday for her checkup, which that went perfect. Doc said she was perfect :)...Then me and Jason when Christmas shopping since the kids were at Grammy and Papaws. They are almost done. We decided no toys (well they got one each) and the rest was electronics (Nintendo 3ds, kidsafe digital cameras...) Just need to get Evie her couple outfits for her American Girl doll, and then some clothes for the both of them and we are all set! For the kids :)

Sunday was my homework day, wrote a spanish poem, did a spanish lab and wrote a paper of 6 article summaries from the WSJ. Everything due this morning got done, so of course more to do tonight. Neverending cycle. One of these days I will get my house cleaned. I really wish I had a little more help. Sometimes my darling DH really lacks in that department. So I will get to it when I get to it. Its growing but not going anywhere...

Today is my long day at school, yay emoticon Same routine different day

Day 30...Just can't wait...

Friday, September 28, 2012

OMG, I am so tired! Last 2 nights in a row I either lay and bed and think about Spanish or when I do sleep, I dream about Spanish. So either I studied way too much last couple days or I am having anxiety over a dumb quiz! Can't wait to get this over with. Tonight I am relaxing and homework will be included into my weekend for stuff due Monday.

Starting to think that next semester it is time to go down to 2 classes. Now that the classes are harder the homework in becoming too much for 3 classes. I am not getting anything done at home and I am exhausted. So now instead of 3 years to graduation it will be like 4 or 5. Which is fine, I rather get good grades than graduate quicker!

I really hope I can fit me in a nap after my class today and before picking up Evie from school. I definitely need it! Just not able to get enough energy to do my housework or workout...I am trying lil by lil right?

    Little at a time. :) And you're right, better grades are more important than graduating faster.

    If you don't take care of yourself, you may not be well enough to continue. Do I sound like your Mom? I'm old enough :) As for your housework, it will still be there, you & your health are more important.
By the way, what are you studying to be? I don't think I know.
It's difficult to be a wife, Mom, student, and everything in between. Hope you can get some rest this weekend. emoticon emoticon

Day 29...zzzzz

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Last night was interesting...got about 1/2 the spanish lab done, there are 41 activities total, some of the listening portions were hard since I have hearing problems, so that sucked. Out of the 20-some I did last night only 2 I didn't get 100% on becuase of that. But thats ok, not bad! Have to finish the rest today, and prepare for my test tomorrow. We did have another new teacher yesterday, but she is there until either Mr. Gomez comes back or end of semester! So happy, I really liked her too even know we need to get things back in order from all the confusion still yet! Very very tired today again. Can't wait to get pass this and get a nap in!

Not sure how productive I will be today with my workout, but I will at least get my 15 minutes in at school...not much but its something.

    Spanish, I can hardly speak English. Ha!! I really don't know how you do it, but I give you the "High-5" for all your efforts. Staying active must help you to stay sane. You do much more than many of us. emoticon emoticon

    We all get days like that - with me it's either something with family or my dog keeps me up for some reason - and then I really don't feel the energy to work out. So on those days, I try to DO SOMETHING to get activity in or at least a partial workout, which is more than I'd ever have done in the past! Hope you have a great day!
