And that's about how my week's going


I realized Saturday that I'd bitten off way more than I could chew,
so I dropped the second class. I can't describe the feeling of relief that swept over me.
I'm just on the second week of the first class and my eyes are glazed over.
We're having BOTH bathrooms completely redone this week.
All work has to be done while the Cute Chicks are in school.
Construction and Autism are not compatible.
I was just overwhelmed.
Now I'm simply whelmed.

They're pot potholes

Take your best shot


Okay, so this is my latest dilemma

I just ended the Grammar Class From Hell, and thought I had two weeks to recover before the next one started. Yay! But wait.... I got an email yesterday telling me I could access the class materials Sunday because the class has been moved up a week. yay.

I took this class because the class I originally wanted was full. Every time I've tried to take that damn class it's been full; I'm just not quick enough on the draw. So I signed up for the other class, paid the fee, and on the very small chance it might happen, signed the waiting list for the first class. Now, both of these classes are required; I'll have to take them both eventually. Keep that in mind; it's important to the story.

I received another email today informing me that the original class has an opening and I'm first on the list. It will still be starting on the 17th, am I still interested? So, here it is, the dilemma:

Class #1: Already enrolled, paid for, instructor is one I've had for two other classes, made As in both classes, he likes me and enjoys my quirky sense of humor. This would basically be a fluff class which I desperately need after the GCFH.

Class #2: Extremely hard to get in, unknown instructor, harder material, starts a week later.

Do I do the sensible thing and drop Class 1 and enroll in Class 2? Or do I do the Angel thing and stay in Class 1, enroll in Class 2, and do them both? The Nuclear Option. I either make it or it breaks me.


This day was made for me

How Godzilla really took Tokyo

Exactly how I felt when I got my grade


I'm still shocked and ashamed that I couldn't identify
a past perfect participial gerund phrase used as an adverb.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it



Adult sippy cups

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.


FYI, I made a 78 on the comprehensive final and an 84 for the final grade.
What I knew, I knew;
what I didn't (identify the phrase or clause, what type and it's function in the sentence),
I will probably never know.
And I'm just fine with that.


If you need me, I'll be in my secret lair with my sippy cup.
