OMG- where did the time go?!

My first two weeks of classes has flown by! I can't believe it. Mostly because I also had to start prepping the kids for the beginning of school and it was our anniversary. My head is spinning so much I can barely remember my name. The kids are off for the first day tomorrow & our anniversary was this past Saturday. #22! Can you believe it? Neither can I.

That leaves school. It's intimidating to enter a classroom & realize that most of your classmates are young enough to be your children. :( Luckily for me the prof is a very genteel Southern lady who gives off what I call "nun vibes"-gentle and sweet looking on the outside yet very no nonsense when you scratch the surface. She wore the neatest raspberry colored suit the first day of class. Anyhow. The Husband bet me I couldn't keep my mouth shut even on the first day- I barely made it. What can I say? Idiots annoy me & teenagers who think they have the answer to it all are especially annoying. *shrug* I didn't have to whip out the mom voice until the second class, so I guess I won the bet. Problem is we can't remember the stakes. LOL :)

As for books I'm way way behind. What else is new? I have three books for the international relations class, one of which I'm supposed to have finished by Sept. 15th. Haven't read more than 75 pages out of 600+. LOL :) I can catch up pretty quickly- it's a Thomas Friedman, so it should go pretty fast once I really get going. Anime Queen somehow has me hooked on Fruits Basket. Why and how I really don't know, but FB has totally caught my attention. How much of a contest can there be, honestly- between T. Friedman and Fruits Basket?

So there you have it. My first two weeks of class, getting the kids prepped for school, our anniversary & remembering I have homework now. Very calm & quiet life I lead, huh?

Yikes--just realized I didn't wish you a "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY".

I can imagine you do, Tara! :) Thanks for the good wishes.

I got the "nun look" yesterday, that may actually be worse than "nun vibes" :)

Bookwormom said...

Ah yes "the nun look" - is it as intimidating as an adult as it was as a kid? ;)

Tara Marie said...

Yes--LOL Not only did I get "the nun look" yesterday I also got "the nun voice". "The nun voice" means you're really in trouble.

Thankfully I don't know any nuns ;)

Happy Belated Anniversary and Great Luck with school. I'd be terrified to set foot in the door of a school ;)

CindyS~ School has been pretty intimidating, TBH. I'm settling in ok- not being able to shut my big mouth has helped! :0

Nuns can be wonderful or scary, not much in between. Thanks for the good wishes. :)
