Survival. . .

I started Summer semester with a bang. . .15 credits after being away from school for 18 months (yet again). I knew it would be difficult to have that many credits after being on hiatus for a while. I had to get the cobwebs out and get my brain to work scholastically again. Even though I knew it was going to be hard, I don't think I realized how hard it would be.

My class schedule consisted of being in classes from 9-5 each day and then 5-6+ hours of homework each night. I started classes on May 18th and finished them up on July 23rd.

My house was being run on auto-pilot during the week because I was too busy to deal with it. My older kids had to take the responsibility of watching my two younger kids ALL day. I have to give kudos to "Bones" because his sister was gone most weeks with volleyball, EFY, camp, etc. So, he did have the most babysitting to do. He was a trooper. I can't say that he never complained about his babysitting duties this Summer, but he didn't complain often.

The craziness continued to gain momentum when my sister arrived with her kids on July 4th to stay for a month. We were excited to have them come and stay since we don't get to see them often. . .they probably wondered what they had gotten themselves into when they saw how crazy my life is right now.

My sister is still here and now we can finally take the time to have some fun because I SURVIVED and finished up finals yesterday. I officially have 15 more credits towards my bachelors degree and I am still sane after all that the past 12 or so weeks has dished out to me.

Now to enjoy the 4 week break before I start Fall semester and live the craziness all over again ;)

Until next time. . .
