Can I start out saying just how happy I am that the summer semester is over?! It is slowly sinking in that I have no homework to do, no papers to pull out of my ear in under two hours, and no tests to cram for overnight. I am starting to relax a little...almost. I've been cleaning a lot the last two days. I was so humbled that my friend, Mody, came to help me clean yesterday. I couldn't believe that she did, but she was a great help to me and I couldn't have done it without her. To pay her back, I bought pizza for lunch and made my yummy chili and cornbread for dinner. It was so nice to have someone to hang out with. I told her today that I think that the kids aren't sure if I really have friends cause I rarely have anyone over. Want to know the reason for this? I'm either too flippin' busy or the house is horribly dirty. I have to say that I am very proud of how clean the house is getting. Maybe I can keep it like that all the way through the next semester...Yeah, right! And maybe I can train the dishes to wash themselves. In my cleaning, I have found a cure for spontaneous clothes shopping...do your laundry. You always think you have nothing to wear and begin to feel the need to shop. But if you do your laundry, you'll be amazed by how many clothes you actually have. Give it a try. You'll also find your bedroom floor! It's a win-win situation.
My hubby wants us to go on this Parade of Homes. It's basically a tour you pay fo to go through a lot of upscale homes in our area. It seems like it would be fun to see these upscale homes, mostly because I would love to see the interior decorating in each and the architecture, and to be amazed by their sheer size. Not to mention that hubby's boss bought the tickets for us. Hubby is also hoping to pick up some million dollar real estate clients in the near future.
I got 2 of 3 the grades for my summer classes. The two I got were a B in Trig and an F in calculus (which was expected). I still haven't gotten my grade for English class yet. I think I will get a B or a low A in it. At the end of a semester, I usually feel a huge rush of relief after finals and turning in final papers. However, this year, it was different. I felt relief and disappointment in equal measures. This is because I know that if I had hired my tutor a few weeks sooner, I would have passed that calculus class. So, I'm kicking myself mentally. I will have to retake it and I'm not thrilled about that, but I really want the math teaching certification. I enjoy math and that will be my ticket to getting hired. Between that and having a master's, I should have a greater chance at joining a school district of my choice. I hope to get hired in a district close by so I won't have to travel much and I'll be close to the kids. Another year and a half of busting my butt like I never have before, and I will achieve my goal.
