Sorry to be so quite these days! That is so not like me. But you see, learning how to learn again is a full time job for this little brain of mine.
I have never taken online courses before, and now I am taking three. Plus the Anatomy class I take at the school campus twice a week. I thought I understood the calendar feature of the college website. Alas, wrong again. I logged on yesterday morning to find that I had a science lab due that day and one due tomorrow.
I set about reviewing how to make this ^%&$^# calendar function work and wrote it all down on my new school assignment book.
Here is February:
Each notation is something due. An exam, an assignment, a lab report or a term paper. Not just "Will you please read chapter 4 and take notes," but "Do this big *ss lab for which you don't have a ruler that does millimeters, format it into a file, attach it to an email, and send it to me, your lofty professor who is reclining at the pool somewhere sunny while you sweat in the freezing cold."
Yup. That about sums it up.
Needless to say, yesterday, instead of calmly preparing for my anatomy lecture and lab on biochemistry, I ran around unwashed, in my long john pajamas, measuring cr*p with a quilting ruler, converting centimeters to millimeters (don't you dare laugh at me, Marmy!) and trying to get stuff done before the professor with the tan and a pina colada refused to accept it.
I threw some clothes on over the long johns to help Studly drop off and then collect the Tahoe at the car dealership, where it had some recall items and other things fixed. And they want $700 to replace the ruined tire rim. I don't think so!
My husband is very patient with me, but I doubt he is amused by the even less than normally bad housekeeping and cooking.
He's also very amusing!
I WILL get my act together one of these days. But, I don't see any letup to the frantic studying until... umm... May!
