School's Out For Summer!

This has been the craziest week ever. I think I say that every week!!! So it's 4 in the morning. I really wanted to get a post in, because tomorrow I help mom move, and Sat I work, and by Sunday I will have forgotten everything.

I took 2 finals today. I am really praying that I did well on my Pre-Calc. final, because I need a A! See we took 3 regular tests, and a final. If we averaged an A on the regular tests, we didn't have to take the final. Unfortunately, I got my worst grade ever on the 2nd test. I made..... a 66! I actually am going to keep this grade and scrapbook about it. It'll be therapeutic for me! I was proud of myself, I didn't cry, I didn't yell, I just took it calmly from my teacher, and said, "well if I turn it upside down it's a 99!" I actually knew I wasn't going to do well on this test, I missed a class (didn't have a babysitter), and that really screws me up when it comes to math. Because it's summer session our classes only go for 8 weeks, so our instructor has to cram a full semester into a short session. It's doable, but if you miss one class, you miss like a full week of classes. I did make A's on both of my other tests. If I make an A on the final, I will make an A for the course.

I think being a mother is changing me. Six months ago I would have cried all night over that grade. I've been known to cry over B's, I know it's a little neurotic, but school is the only thing I've ever been really good at. Now that I have a child, I would rather play with him than do my homework. It's bad I know, but having a 4.0 GPA isn't the most important thing in this world. I am finally learning that.

We're moving mom tomorrow, wait no we're moving mom in 3 hours. She's doing okay. There are good days and bad days. I am just happy that we are getting her out of that house, and on with her life. It can only get better!

I just got my car out of the shop. It cost $1000 bucks to fix... grrrr. With my fall tuition due, I honestly have no idea what I am going to do. We'll figure it out, we always manage to get by, somehow! Thank goodness for Ramen! We've been borrowing a car that belongs to a friend of mine at work. It's like a 80-something Mercedes station wagon. It's got 190,000 miles on it, and I think we are going to buy it from her. She wants $1600 for it, and it's a really good deal. It's a little on the old side, but it's a big car (we have a 2-door sporty little car), and we really need a 2nd car. We've mostly been borrowing my MIL's car when we need two, but I am really tired of being dependent on everyone, and I really hate having to borrow everybody else's cars.

On to Liam. Man this boy is growing like crazy! He is so funny. He'll cry, and when one of us goes to pick him up, he'll get this smirk on his face. What a spoiled little monkey! He is also greedy! I will pick up his pacifier, or one of his toys and start playing with it or biting on it, and he'll grab it away from me. Sometimes he'll play with it, sometimes he'll just throw it down beside him. I don't know what this child is going to do when he has siblings. He's also moving like crazy, at first he was just rolling to get where he wanted to go. Now, he's almost crawling. He pushes off with his little feet, and scoots all over the place on his stomach. It is crazy to watch him move across the floor!!!! He's only 5 months old, and he just seems to be growing way too fast for me. Pretty soon, girls will be yucky, and he won't want to have anything to do with his mama. *sigh* He's a really happy baby, he just laughs and smiles when you look at him. He does love his attention though. In the mornings he is great, and I can pick up or do something and he is content to lay on the ground while I talk to him. Later during the day though, he wants me or his dad to lay beside him and play. We don't mind.

Okay, I really need to go sleep for a couple hours, or should I just stay up, and catch up on reading blogs. I have two weeks off before school begins, so I will catch up on my blogging, and I want to scrap like crazy! Oh yeah, after finals week for both of us, my house really needs to be cleaned.


  1. I hope you get your A! I wish I lived closer I would've babysat for ya! Isn't amazing what we learn from our children? Sounds like Liam has got you wrapped around his little finger! They sure like their attention. The siblings that follow don't seem to get as much as the first.

    So is your mom all moved in now? Hope everything went well with the move.

    Take care and have a great weekend!

  2. Wow what a busy day! I'm tired just reading about everything. Hope you get an "A" but I'm sure you will. Good luck.

  3. WOw you are a Wonderwoman! Hope the move goes okay!

  4. Lots of blessings and challenges in your life right now, huh?

    What are you studying?

  5. Oh Dear girly! I have to tell you all our houses really need to be cleaned when you have little kiddos. Just remember the basics...teehee!

    WTG on your new found life lesson! And IKWYM, internet friends does sound kinky doesn't it? But that's alright...that will be our memory!! ;)
