I'm dreaming of .... a White Christmas.....I mean a break!

Oh my goodness its been a long while since I've posted anything.  I hate not having the time to blog.  But school is really killing me right now!  This session, I've had an algebra class and a principles of business class.  Algebra alone was killer but add to that all the required assignments (usually 2 each)  from both classes due each week, and working a full-time job on top of that and I feel like I am going to pull my hair out.

I had math finals due yesterday and I didn't realize it was due yesterday until Thursday so I literally spent every waking hour that I wasn't at work, studying and preparing for my exam all weekend.  I'm stressed and I'm feeling a little down because I haven't had anytime to enjoy the holidays like I want.  But why am I complaining?  I chose this path so I will just shut up now. 

Any hoo....  I have a 2 more assignments for each class due this week and then I will be on break until after the new year.  Thank Goodness! 

So now you know what I have been doing.  What I haven't been doing is baking and making candy or shopping.  I am hoping to get started on that very soon. 

I'm excited though because DH and I are driving to Utah on Friday to pick up my kids and bring them back up here for Christmas.  I am really looking forward to seeing them. 

I am very proud of Shellise.  She was in her school play "White Christmas" which held their production every day last week.  She has to be beat!   I sure wish I could have seen her in that play, it is my favorite holiday production. 

Shellise also takes ballroom dance and will be performing next weekend and I will get to see that performance while I am there.  I can't wait! 

I hope to be able to finish my Christmas shopping, do some baking and make candy, and catch up on some much needed projects sometime soon, or maybe I won't.  For right now I have to get my school assignments done so I can enjoy the holidays.  Looking ahead to some wonderful quality time with my kids. 
And I am looking ahead to some quality posts by me in the near future... maybe?  I hope.  Miss you all! 

Happy Holidays!

Those were great pictures of Shellise in her play. Also, how long are you going to be in Utah. Are we going to be able to see you? Email me if you'll be around because I would sure like to see you two.

Good luck with school! That is something I do not miss!

You certainly do have a lot on your plate. I remember doing the school thing with 5 little kids. I lived and breathed school, I am not sure when I took care of the kids.
Supportive hubby for sure.

Good luck with the math classes, yuk.
Drive safely to Utah and wave as you go by!!!!!
