I have mentioned that I started taking grad school classes last semester and the stress level hit the ceiling in the last weeks as I struggled to get papers and assignments done while taking care of my kids.
When I was on campus, I kept looking at all the undergrads, doing their thing, getting their work done in the food court, and couldn’t help but be jealous. When you have kids, your life always takes a back seat and your plans are always dependent on everyone else’s plans. In order to get some time at the library to work on my paper, I had to enlist my parents to watch the kids. All other work was done from 9:00 until midnight, after the kids were tucked in their beds.
I was so busy, I had no time to myself. I couldn’t watch TV, because I wasn’t able to pay attention and write a paper at the same time. And forget about reading anything that wasn’t for school. My house was a mess. I was in survival mode.
So, when the semester ended, my brain decided to put itself in rehab causing me to become lazy and unable to do anything that involved much deep thought. Honestly, I’m not going to complain. I caught up on TV, watching 4 season finales of shows that I like. We rented some Redbox movies (I did not like Into the Woods. Acting, yes. Music, no) and I actually read an entire book.
Memorial Day weekend was filled with family time, watermelon, a baby pool and sprinkler, hamburgers, guacamole and a broken fridge. Other than the coolers of ice, a handful of ruined food items, and the expensive repair, it was fantastic and relaxing.
Yesterday started the summer session at school. I logged on to the online class site and quickly got back into the groove. So now there is no excuse for my laziness. My brain is waking back up, and I am ready to resume my role as blogger extraordinaire! Well, my role as blogger who tries her best, anyway.
