August 27, 2010

It's my last weekend before school.  I'm excited about getting back into a routine but nervous about the course load.  The work is starting to get harder and more time and labor intensive.  I remember last semester... after the boys were down at 8:00 I'd be up till midnight or later reading and studying and wondering if I'm too old for all this!

One of my classes is an online class and the homework has been posted so I've been working on it for 3 days.  It's only 7 weeks long, so the quantity of homework in incredible.  I hope to have it all finished over the weekend so I can be a week ahead.  My classes this are Forensic Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Social Psychology, and an Ethics class. 

I've formed a new organization on campus, S.K.I.L.L., Students with the Knowledge and Intelligence for Life-long Learning.  It's been a TON of work, but I'm hoping for great things!

The garden has come to a screeching halt.  The purple hulls and the cukes are completely done.  Some of the corn has ripened but it's eat up with worms.  The green beans are blooming, but may dry up before they come in.  4 or 5 of my six foot tall tomato plants fell over.  The stakes broke off at the ground.  The plants didn't break, so I'm hoping they'll live.  I've yet to can any tomato juice this year.  That and pickles have always been a staple in the house.  Needless to say I'm keeping my fingers crossed for lots of tomatoes.

Caty, Thanks for your comment on my blog. My daughter has her Masters in I.O. Psychology. She got her masters when my granddaughter was a baby. It was very hard for her...but I am very proud that she didn't give up and completed.
You are on a very good path. Your husband is very funny! :)
