Lack of sle........zzzzzzzzzzzzz (AND ROLL CALL)

Yes, I am definitely burning the candle at both ends. Guess where that came from? It came from a saying that one left for work, such as on a farm, while the candle was burning(because it was still dark) and then, yep you guessed it, when one would come back home, the candle was burning again(because it was now night).

So, I did a wee better on my next quiz in this class. I am very frustrated because I knew this material frontward, backward and in Spanish even! I ended up emailing my professor and sounding my concern that his quizzes were no reflection on my mastery of the material and could not in one instance find even one reference to a question he had included. He now wants me to meet him in his office. Why do I feel like I am back in high school and am so nervous? I will let y'all know what happens when this meeting occurs.

Anyway, getting into the groove. So far, I am getting full points in my other three classes and so feel I am not a failure after all. I don't know if I will ever know what a good nights sleep is again, or if I will ever find the time to exercise again, but I am proving that you are never too old to go back to school. Funny I am closer in age to my instructors than my fellow students. Well, not that funny.

Hope everything is good in the blog world. I am sorry to say I am not getting to visit your blogs like I would like to but hope I will continue to get feedback from all you awesome blog stalkers. I will so reward those who visit and leave comments. Don't know how yet, but I will recognize y'all somehow, someway.

So jump on the band-wagon people! Or Jump back on, this is gonna be fun!

( Sound out for roll call, even if just to say hello)

Have a great day Blog Stalkers!

Your leading the way, I am sure to fallow you back to school. As we are talking about when would be a good time for me to start back. The hardest part deciding wither or not I should become a teacher or chase my dream of being an architect!

When I go back I will have 2 in college my self.

Look forward to knowing how your meeting works out with that teacher. Good Luck.

Who needs sleep that is for when we are in our 80's and sitting in our rocking chairs.

I admire you for going back to school. It's so sad that when I went to college I learned shorthand. The squigles and lines, not the LOL thing. AND I had a typewriting class. I can't imagine going back now. I have Addi usually a couple of times a week and it seems like I just get the house strait and and I have to drag out the toys again. And keep an ear out when she naps.

YEAH for you for taking the initiative to voice your concerns!!! I know the prof is just asking to see you to further explain stuff. Keep going!!!

Regular sleep is so over-rated! I did not know where that saying came from. I've been meaning to look up the origination of some sayings/cliches we use, you are my inspiration.
