school shmool

I've been studying... studying.... studying... to try to catch up with my classes. Carlee went to the sitter's yesterday, and in 4 hours, I was only able to finish 2 chapters in my computer class (almost 3) and print out the science syllabus. It was then that I realized that my science class is not actually a self paced class like I thought it was. Nope. I've got 3 chapters of reading, labs, observations, and homework due by Sunday. Awesome. It has also turned out that neither class is going to be easy shmeesy like I had hoped. The computer class would be easy if I were in a face to face class, but since it's online, it uses this emulator and if you don't do things exactly the way it wants you to, then it's wrong, even though there are a ton of different ways to do the same thing. And the science class, well, I've never been really good at science, so to start with that doesn't help. The first chapter is nothing but physics and calculations and stuff I don't even know how to do. yay!

so this is why I still haven't gotten back to posting regularly yet. :)

I sure wish they would have had online classes when I started college. I think it's so cool that you're doing it! Being a Mom and a wife are big jobs, so I give you applause!

I feel your pain. It must be the full moon or something. The class that I'm in is kicking my butt too.

If you need a couple of hours to catch up I don't mind watching Carlee for a bit :)

loraloo- aw thanks :)
angela- yeah I'll blame it on the full moon, lol. I might take you up on that offer this next week, Carlee's sitter isn't taking kids b/c she's going on a trip.
