My Apologies to My Team and My Spark Friends

Friday, May 24, 2013

I want to say thank you for all your wonderful support, comments, and birthday wishes this past week. I am sorry I have not posted anything back. But I wanted everyone to know I did see them and that I appreciated them very much.

It has been a very long week. My birthday was on Monday. My son graduated from preschool on Tuesday (took a long lunch for that so had to make up some time at work). I had finals Tuesday and Wednesday night. And died on the couch early on Thursday night :o)

And just when I thought I could breath, I got an email from my instructor.......I missed the entire last page of one of my finals!!!!!! Say what????????? He was giving me a change to get it finished but wanted it done ASAP so he could post grades for the class. Um????? I was at work with no book.....now what? I went and downloaded the exam and sure enough, I missed the last page of like 30 questions!?!?!?!?!? So I attempted to do my best to answer the questions with limited resources while at work. That was not stressful at all ;)

I got it finished as best I could, emailed to instructor, and am now crossing fingers hardcore. I have had a very rough semester a lot of things came up early in the semester that put me very behind. Most instructors would have not been flexible and allowed me to still turn in stuff late with no point loss. I was very blessed to have the instructor I did, or I would have failed my first class ever. When I submitted the remaining questions, he emailed me back and said:

"It has been a really tough semester for you but you have had the character to overcome all the difficulties and I appreciate your hard work and all you contributed to our class.
I hope you get some rest this summer."

Very blessed indeed. So as I was saying.....I am sorry. I have not been able to read emails, reply to posts, read blogs, write blogs, or keep track of status updates. All I could keep up with was, eating healthy, working out, logging food and logging exercise. Minimal participation is all I could give this week.

You are all such an awesome group of people. I hope you have had a great week. And I hope that you have a safe and healthy Sparktastic holiday weekend!!!

    Oh boy that's completely insane. I'm so glad you had a great professor who was willing to let you have a chance to do the last page. Everyone has busy or hard times, and we all understand when people can't respond. Hope things start to slow down some now.

    What an absolutely lovely note for your professor to send! I

    Why is that everything happens in a short time span leading to overload? I saw your updates all week. You were checking in. And you were getting exercise in, too. I think you did more than "minimal".

    Hang in there and enjoy the weekend!

    That's life sometimes and it sounds like you are handling it like a champ! I'm impressed you were able to keep up with your eating and exercise with all that going on!

    Good for you :)
