Just Going with It

According to my professor last night, this is hell week. Which clarifies a few things for me. Cause I'm feeling it. Getting a D+ on my first Anatomy & Physiology exam that I put no less than 20 hours into studying for was, um ... sad. I have more homework online than I can really sort out. And unrelated to school, a weird visit in my living room with someone I don't know, telling me things that are, um ... weird. Things that are both irrelevant and yet central? I'm going with irrelevant.

A couple friends have asked me, how do you do it? To be totally busy with school and kids and planning for my future while being divorced at the same time. The honest answer: I have no idea. Am I doing it? What exactly am I doing? It's one of those times in life where you don't really have time to think about the next thing you need to do because the thing in front of you needs doing first.

The good news is that my D+ was above average for the class. It was a bad test. They're implementing a new online program through the textbook company. He said that the next test will tell him if it was a bad test or if we're all really stupid.

The other good news is that I got a position at the physical therapy office that I really wanted to do my job shadowing hours in. All, hopefully, 150 hours if I want. Ten hours a week for four months.

Wow! That is GREAT! Good news!! Sorry about the D+, but still, above is all in perspective, huh?

You are amazing and I don't know how you do it. I know that feeling of taking each thing as it comes and how certain things need you now, so that is what you do. As soon as you finish with that, the next urgent thing needs you, the rest of life either goes on with you or waits until you come back to it!?! You are doing great...I love seeing you smile and hearing you be "okay"...Love you my friend!
