This thing still works, right?
Gosh, y’all, I am so sorry I haven’t been around. I am *failing* at this whole Being a Mom, a Wife and a Big Bad University Student thing. I’m not sure why I am barely surviving it, but it’s planning on killing me by December, and I’m determined to not let it.
Of course, it doesn’t help that my husband now lives 614 miles away (where he works) and I only see him every few weeks. No, we aren’t getting divorced.
I have had to drop two classes since the beginning of the semester, putting me under full-time student status, which ticks me off, but I can’t juggle everything at once until I get used to juggling everything at once. Clear as mud, right?
I wanted to write about my experience at the Inner-City school that we visited in my Education class, but it feels like forever since then. Let me just say that the experience was good but SO sad.
I wanted to write about the fact that I had to drop TWO classes because strep throat swept through my house like the bubonic plague and my son has been put in speech therapy and I needed a morning every week that I could use to refresh my brain and not have to rush to classes after the ten other things I had to do.
I wanted to write about how much of a whiner I am that I can’t handle everything, all because my husband isn’t here, he’s there, and I would suck at being a single mom. But I am also in awe of mothers that do it themselves, because parenting is hard.
I wanted to write about my son’s school pictures and how I forgot about them and rushed him to school with a somewhat dirty face and how in his pictures he has dirt on his face and I feel so *bad* about it, but not bad enough for re-takes.
I wanted to write about how I was so excited about the iPhone 4s that I
practically begged my husband for one for my birthday, which is not very far away. He said he’ll get me one. I love that man.
I wanted to write about how for our anniversary (which is also coming up soon), I asked for a gun, because living by myself is not the most mind-easing thing I’ve ever done.
I wanted to write about the Wall Street protests, because they scare the crap out of me.
I wanted to write about my professor that wants us to call History “herstory” – and how I laughed out loud until I realized she was serious.
I wanted to write about how I’ve found Foster the People (a band) and how they complete me and make my soul happy.
I wanted to write about how now that I have a Macbook, I have totally taken a huge swig of the Apple Kool-Aid and I want
at least two of everything that they make.
But all those things came and went and now it’s almost Halloween and I probably haven’t been here in a month. I suck.
Hope y’all are around, because it’s about to get more entertaining.
