Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to us by Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time. Go say hello and check out the other Friday Fragments participants!

  • It’s been another wild and crazy week, as I continue to try to get into a routine with school and work.  I’m pretty much tired all the time.  But, so far, I am keeping up.
  • Tim was a lifesaver last weekend when he instructed me I was to only focus on homework, and leave all the household stuff to him.  He cooked, cleaned, did laundry, and offered his support.  I am blessed!   Thanks to Tim’s ‘intervention’, I was able to get all of my homework done, and even get a little bit ahead!  Thank you, Honey!  XO’s!
  • I still like my classes, but am a bit worried about statistics.  Sometimes I just feel like I’m in over my head.  Hopefully, as time goes on, I’ll actually start to get it!
  • My government class meets twice a week, but, I really don’t see the point.  We do all of our work online and meet in class for discussions.  (This is not an online class.)  Again, I just don’t get it.
  • My ex had our almost 14-year-old dog put down last night.  I know Cody was in failing health, but have no details about why the ex chose to do it now.  I’m sad I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye, and I hope that Cody is at peace.
  • Cody

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to us by the infamous Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time. Stop over at her place, say hello, and check out the other participants!

*  I was told I should hear something about my job at the end of last week.  Well, it’s the end of this week, and I still haven’t heard anything.  Maybe today??

*  For three days this week, I worked as a Peer Leader at a seminar for an organization I’m a member of at school.  Let me just say, these three days were filled with perfect examples of disorganization, which caused me a great deal of frustration.  I was the only one who showed up on time every day, and that was just the beginning.  So glad it’s over!

However, I did meet some great people.  One in particular was my fellow Peer Leader, Jen.  We hit it off right away, and I don’t think I would have gotten through it without her!

I also had the opportunity to meet a new student who reminded me a lot of myself at about this time last year.  She too has to take the “refresher” math courses, and was beating herself up about it.  I shared my experience with her, and gave her my email address.  She seemed more optimistic after we spoke, so I hope that I helped her a little bit!

*  Haven’t been feeling well all week.  It started with a terrible headache on Monday (which I still have, but not as constant), and then added a sore throat yesterday.  I’m also exhausted from the hours I’ve put in at the seminar, so I’m sure that doesn’t help.  I slept in until 10:00 this morning (something I rarely do), so maybe I will start feeling better soon.

*  One of my classes was cancelled due to low registration (I was expecting that), so I had to register for the only other time that class is available… 8-9:15 a.m.  Not great, but, honestly, I’ll just be happy if they don’t cancel that class too (it also doesn’t have very many people registered), because it’s for my major.

*  I decided to withdraw from the class that would conflict with my work hours.  I never got around to asking Edna (not her real name) if she would help me out.  Even if she agreed to, it would mean I would have to go in on my only day off during the week (from both school and work).  The more I thought about it, the more I didn’t want to have to do that.  I’m already stressing about how I’m going to keep up with school, work, and home, so that seemed an easy way to take some of the pressure off.  I spoke with the professor, and she usually teaches the class in the spring semester as well, so I’ll just take it then.

*  Dropping one class meant I had to choose and register for another.  I’ll be at school four days a week, with two classes each day.  So, I decided my new fifth class should be an online class.  In my experience, they are usually more work, but at least I’ll be able to do it from home (or work).  I chose Short Stories.  Not that I really wanted to take another English class (thought I was finished with that!), but I think I will enjoy this, and if fulfills one of my humanities electives.

*  Even though I didn’t particularly enjoy all of the seminar, it felt really good to be back on campus this week!  I love that place!

Hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and fun weekend!

My First Friday Fragments

Fragments Friday

Friday Fragments is the creation of Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time. If you’re not already reading her blog, today is a good day to start! :-)

My Friday Fragments…

~ ~ You know how most churches these days have signs out front, usually displaying their service times, or an inspirational message? Well, one church that I pass on my way to work had a rather odd message last week. (I tried to get a photo but failed miserably.) It said, “Humpty Dumpty was pushed.” Huh? ~ ~

~ ~ Last Friday, my supervisor told me that the woman I was hired to fill in for is not coming back. I talked to the woman in human resources on Tuesday, and she informed me that the job has to be posted internally for seven days, but that my supervisor “really wants” me, so it’s looking good! Hopefully, I will get an offer today (and a raise)! :-) ~ ~

~ ~ In case you somehow missed it (as if that were possible!), Tim and I got engaged on Tuesday! You can read/see more about it in my previous post.  I am the happiest and luckiest woman in the world! ~ ~

~ ~ Today is Tim’s birthday!  Happy birthday, Sweetheart! I love you so very much!! ~ ~

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
