School

I managed to get a parking pass AND find my class yesterday! My class is 2:30 to 7 M-F so I will have no time for blogging. I am so busy trying to cram my life in the rest of the free time. The first class was part mind-numbing and part exciting. I definitely learned a few things, felt a little overwhelmed, but I think I am really going to love it. One bad thing. I will be required to write a paper. Oh shit. I haven't written a paper since 1981. I have no clue. Luckily I have a fresh from college graduate in my home whose talents I will be tapping into.

Over the weekend we had a great grad party for Lisa. I will post pictures....um, someday when I have time. Luckily there was a little leftover food because that's what my family will be eating for the next month. Ha!

See ya! Gotta get my assigned reading done.

Dearest mary.. pardon my absence but I LOST your blog!! How so you say?? Well, since I'm a procrastinator fixin' my blog to add all my favourites in one convenient clickin' link, I thought I had yours in my regular favourites list ..holy cow. I did not. I tried googling you and still, couldn't find you. Sheesh..glad you commented on The Future..so I followed you back 'home'.. awwww...yes yes, I know..
anyhow, I have a lot of catching up to do with your interesting life.. luckily, school's out tomorrow and the next couple of weeks I'll be doing more blogging as well..
congrats on the school thing. Isn't it weird being back into it as a 'grown up'??
take care and see you later,
hugs
Ingrid

"I managed to get a parking pass AND find my class yesterday!"
Some "incoming Freshmen" have all the luck.:)

"One bad thing. I will be required to write a paper. Oh shit. I haven't written a paper since 1981."
Ghost writers, honey, Ghost writers!:) The kind that do the book but allows the title to say "By Mary", and then in print so small you need a high powered microscope to see, "As Told to "......"

Betmo- Girl, you are so right!

Ingrid- Don't feel bad. I am so behind on reading too. It's hard to keep up now that the nice weather is here not to mention all the other things going on.

Carol- Thank you from both of us.

Robert- Funny. My kids laugh and laugh at me. They just find it so bizarre.
I highly recommend taking any class you can fit in your busy schedule.

Dawn- We had places to go when we were young. Now we are settled. Take a class.

E4E- Love the encouragement. At the beginning of the week i really needed it. Now I'm all in. I'm ready to sign up for more!

TUA- Ha! Thanks for the tip. I have one in mind already.

Fran- My head is already buzzing w/all the new ideas I've picked up. By the end of the month I will explode.
