2:39pm & Still Wearing Jammies

A few months ago I must have swallowed stupid pills because I decided to go back to school for a master's degree. Fast forward to Friday, November 14th 11:54pm and I am freaking out. I have a minute to upload a group assignment that is not as good as it should be and I realize I don't care. Five more semesters of this! I need to figure a way to convince my doctor to up the Xanax prescription dosage.

So now it is Saturday and I refuse to shower because that would mean I have to take my jammies off. (I will shower before I leave the worries.)

The best part of this (yes, there is a best part) is having a husband who sees the importance of earning this degree. I cannot remember the last time I did dishes or cleaned the bathroom. He just does it. While I type up the latest assignment, he is cleaning the kitchen. The computer is in the kitchen now so we can have some time together. I wish everyone could have an Alan. If I could clone him, I would!

Little Keziah is even better about it. We have found that we can have one-on-one time by doing homework together. We lounge on the couch or plop down on my bed...but there the two girls are trying to solve what feels like the toughest problems possible. I would trade with her any day. She has to figure out rounding up numbers then subtracting them. I am trying to figure out the best way for Land Rover North America to position the Discovery vehicle to increase overall profits and global market shares. I don't think Keziah will trade with me. Or maybe she would...I can picture her solution: "Paint them pink and put Hannah Montana's picture on the side." Hmmmm....maybe.

Lesson learned: Despite all we have going on in life, your family can be a part of it.
