What happens when you take a 33 year old mother, who has had the summer to do what ever she wants, and stick her in a classroom for 5-6 hours a day, five days a week?? Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh...that's what...lol!! Seriously though, it has been quite the week. I am used to running around all day long, doing what I like, and now I have to sit still, in a classroom, and listen to my professors, who for the most part, are great. However, my math prof is one of those crazy people who thinks that math should be fun (I am joking...he is not really crazy!), and he has not clearly stated what he expects us to do. Have I mentioned that I have ADD??? Well I do.
Thankfully I am an adult, and I know how to overcome it, but I do not do well with teachers who do not clearly state what it is that they expect from me. I just kind of float around, totally confused, while other people are shaking their heads like they understand what he is saying. What???? We have our first quiz in his class tomorrow, and I am still not sure what will be on it. So....guess what I am doing tomorrow after class? Meeting with Mr. Math Professor, so he can explain to me just what the heck I am supposed to be doing. OK...I am done venting now :) Oh, and guess what??? The weather has been gorgeous around here. I'm talking upper 70"s and low to mid 80's. Do you know what it was doing two weeks ago? It was raining!!! Amber was off today, and I swear that I sat, staring out the window, daydreaming about riding. Thankfully she is off on Sunday too, and we are planning on going for a ride. I can hold onto that thought while I am stuck indoors tomorrow (right about now, those of you who work are ready to give me a kick in the pants...sorry!)

The bad thing about school, when compared to a job, is that with most jobs, when you leave work, you are done, and you are free to do whatever you want in the evenings and on the weekends, but when you are in school, once you leave, you have anywhere from 6-14 hours of homework to do in the evenings, and on the weekend. Trust me...I would rather be working than in school any day! Actually, I would rather stay home and ride, but wouldn't we all???
My kids are whining about being stuck in school all day too, so maybe we are just a family of whiners...teeheehee!!! Well...it's late, and I still have a couple of chapters to read, so I will sign off, and hopefully next week will be much better. I mean next week will be much better!!!
The way it is
