So far so good. I wake up every morning and do my stretches, everyother morning I do sit ups and push ups and a few other toning exercises.
My days have become stressful to say the least. I am student teaching in a middle school, but my mentor teacher was only their for three days before he left me for two weeks to undergo surgery on his elbow. (not fair, but whatever) So I have been helping the substitute by leading the class with the lesson plans that the teacher has left. They are super boring, so I feel for the students and have been trying to liven them up a little.
On top of this I have to resumit about 10 papers that the college was supposed to have but I was not told about or assigned. As well as the assignments that I need to complete for my student teaching class, and classroom assessment class. I feel like I am drowning. (I also have three daughters, a husband, a dog, and a house)
Something has to give and it isn't going to be my health or my schoolwork. I am too close to meeting both goals that I am not willing to let them slack. My husband should be able to handle the rest for a few months so I can finish school. So far he has done an okay job. He makes dinner, a few times a night, and he has been stepping in to referee my 10 and 13 year old who fight too often. (thank God, because this I can not deal with right now)
I will graduate in May, my family should be able to step up and help me out, but the way my older daughters act you would think I have abandoned them, and it is only a week and a half into the semester.
I spent 6 hours yesterday trying to complete one assignment that should have been done four years ago. I am so frustrated right now that I want to cry, or get drunk, lol.
But I know that I can do it. My house does not have to be perfect, and except for my three year old my children should be pretty self sufficient, and I know deep down my husband is capable of taking care of the rest.
I can't wait until this is all over. I am so done with school right now I just need to push through it all and make sure that I exercise and eat right so that I am healthy enough to deal whatever life will throw at me next.
