A Break??

So today MEA break started! Yeeee haaaww! I needed a break, don't get me wrong...I love school and love to learn, but a break is surely what I needed! My break officially started after school yesterday (that was my thoughts any way). All week long, I stayed after school, daily to get all of my homework done for the week. I wanted to be done with everything, so that I would be able to have a weekend without any homework. But (and that is a an awful BIG but), I thought to myself, we have lived in our home almost 8 years and I have yet to repair, prime and paint our hallway.

This isn't any ordinary hallway mind you. This is one GINORMOUS hallway. One small hallways leads up the stairs, into the stairwell and up to our second floor GINORMOUS hallway. It is a like a large room, within our hallway. I have wanted to paint if for so long, but have been procrastinating because I haven't quite figured out how I am going to become spider man (spider women) and scale the walls above the stairs! I still cringe every time I think about that area. I figure one way or another, I will get it done! I have procrastinated long enough...

This is the question I am asking myself thou...why the heck would I beat feet all week to get my homework done, just to work even harder at getting the plaster walls repaired (most likely three coats of joint compound, sanding in-between each coat and then priming) and painted? I must be a complete fool!

I tell you, I do think I am a fool, but once I am done, I will be a HAPPY FOOL! Is there such a thing as a happy fool? I like to think so.

As of now (mid-semester) straight A's for all 6 of my classes (a couple of straight A's in there actually). I am happy with my grades thus far. If I go down a bit once am I finished with this semester, that is okay. I know that I am doing my best and that is all I can do. After being out of school for 18+ years, I think I am doing pretty good! After all, I am full-time with 16 credits, juggling my life, having three children to tend too and everything else that goes along with it. I do get tired, but more mentally, than physically. But I am happy! And that is all that really matters.

I think I have rambled quite enough. I hope each of you have a pleasant weekend. I know it isn't the weekend, yet. But for me, it is! Toodles for now, ~Tonya

Congratulations on your school grades! Wow! I'm impressed - I'm sure it's hard to be going to school again and juggling a family and crafting and blogging, etc.
Good luck on getting your hallway all painted. Should have before and after pics for us. Have fun! jo
