Vacation? HA!

WHEN, oh WHEN is school starting back up?! My children are being jerks to each other, and everyone else. They are so sick of being together, yet all of their friends are either out of town or busy with family stuff. Yesterday, I took them roller skating. Today, we went to the movies to see Bedtime Stories. It was really funny and cute. (Bolt was, too, we saw that last week). The snow is all melted right now, so sledding is out. I’m running out of ways to get them to cut out the fighting. They’ve been separated, yelled at, had their priveledges taken away, etc. I just want them to go back to school. Hell, I just want ME to go back to school. I have too much time to think right now, I need to be busy again, and I sure will be.

I am taking six (yes, six) classes next semester. Two of them are internet classes, which I hope means that I’ll find them easier than standard ones. One of my regular classes is about special education, and requires 20 hours of observation in a classroom. On top of this workload, I will be doing my peer mentor duties, which includes leading an hour of study group every week, plus a weekly meeting. Peer mentors often help with orientation duties, as well. So, I will most certainly be busy. Yes ma’am.

Can I have a vacation after my vacation? Nothing fancy, just some time away from everything, somewhere warm where I can feel the sunshine, maybe look at some stars at night. Anyone?

    I also need a vacation. For me, even just two free hours all to myself is enough of a vacation. I’m going to try to find that two hours soon. I hope you can too!

    I’ll join you! Somewhere with hot and cold running room service and all the wine we can drink? Perfect!
    Failing that, I’ll settle for school starting back soon too 😉

    That sounds like a nice vacation. Hang in there though! You have an ambitious schedule for the next semester but I think that will help keep things interesting and it will probably fly by for you, especially the internet classes! I loved taking online classes! I hope you do too. 🙂

    Ron – YES! All are welcome at Ginger’s island!

    ETW – You deserve at least 4…that way you can get a nap in, too!

    Penelope – Oooh, and a huge spa, and defninitely all the wine possible!

    Teeni – I took a couple of semesters completely online and I loved it. It saved a ton of time!
