There have been countless posts with countless pictures to go with them. I have yet to throw together. I am recovering from my summer semester. Hind sight in my case is always 20/15. I have only gotten back one grade and it was an A-. Yes folks an A on my transcripts that isn’t Art or Gym. Ok so… Since I have posted last….
The band has been out of work, the car broke down. I started school with a two month old, two year old, and a three year old. We don’t own a vehicle that is less than ten years old. No AC and some soaring temperatures of 113+.
And…I think I may have done the best semester of school in my entire college (12 Year) career. To sum that up again. I done good. So now all I need is a Katrina Strength hurricane to blow through town next time I take a full load of classes and I think I will pull off a 4.0!!
Currently I am on day four of neglecting-house-work-deep-clean. I enjoy this chore becasue I am reminded every so often of what the carpet color is and what it used to be like. I did find my son in a pile of salt that he was using as sand for his trucks the other day. I love the creativity of these fine youth these days.
This summer’s education brought interesting knowledge. For example, in other cultures there are those toddlers that continually following their parents watching in silence their every move inorder to learn their future duties. They will sit quietly for hours on end just watching the mothers cook, clean and prepare things for the village or home they live in. No wonder I despise learning about other cultures.
Another thing that is getting under my dermis…always hearing that money and the pursuit of it will never bring happiness. I have yet to meet the person with ten dollars left in his/her account that said "Ahhhh.. I have never been so happy in my entire life." I wouldn’t call poverty a good choice of mood enhancement therapy.Oh the lies we tell ourselves to feel better.
Yeah the past couple of months have been spent doing some major balancing acts. School and family are difficult to say the least to attempt at the same time. Like I said hind sight 20/15 for me. I don’t think I will sucker myself into that again.
