Just checkin in- 7/15

I'm too tired to think of a coherent blog entry, so I'm just going to give you the highlights:

* Finals are next week. I have one massively unbelievable take-home final due Monday and one in-class final on Wednesday. I also have a research proposal due on the 29th but I'm not stressed about that, it's almost done, just needs a little revision. The in-class final is scaring me though, I've managed to go about 1 1/2 years without taking a class that has a final exam, it's always been projects or papers. The thought of memorizing lots of stuff then having to spew it back out coherently under a 2 hour time crunch is freaky. So wish me luck.

* I'm working a lot this week. Not much else to say about that.

* I'm guilt tripping because my crazy schedule is forcing us to miss both kid's gymnastics classes this week, the one and only thing we do for them. I'm also guilt tripping because this weeks photo challenge, "A day in the life" made it extremely clear how little time I spend with my children each day, and what a sucky mom I am.

Did I mention how tired I am?

Out with the guilt and in with the luck. You're doing what you can. That's enough.

Bah on guilt! You're the best! Soon you'll be on a break and will be able to breathe. Good luck on the final - I'm sure you'll do great. Love ya!

Goodness, you are one easily one of the busiest people I have ever known! Don't feel guilty, you are doing the best that you can!

Like everyone else said already, boo on the guilt. You are one of the busiest people I know and the fact that you do as much as you do and still spend your free time hanging with the girls and going to Girl Scout meetings and camping trips (among other things) absolutely amazes me. That's sacrifice and dedication -- not suckiness.

On another note though, good luck with your finals. Just thinking about an in-class final scares me too but I'm sure you're going to do great. I hope you get a chance to relax next week.
