Down to the Single Digits
No, not the temperature, though that is coming soon, I suppose. No, I am talking about how many weeks of school I have left. As of today, I have 9 Mondays left, then I'm done. I was beginning to wonder if this day would ever come! Here's what it took to get here. 17 months of hard work, tears of frustration, long, agonizing hours over a computer, around 300+ pages of typed papers of assorted topics, but all relating to business turned in, 5 reams of paper wasted, and uncounted cartridges of printer ink went into this program. So did the kid's complaining and whining about all the time I didn't spend with them (not that they REALLY wanted me), strange meals of unbalanced nutritional value (primarily pasta, soup, and "cook it yourself, kids", and on the go snacks.) Who has time to cook?! I also gave up social interaction with other family and friends, church activities, and vacations. Now that I'm nearly done, I have to start thinking about how to get back to normal life, oh, and look for a job! I wonder what life will hold for me now? It all seems like such a dream!
