Oh, it gets BETTER!

It is past midnight and I am wide awake. Wide awake.

Tonight I realized what the next two weeks of my life are going to look like and OH MY GOD. I've decided sleep is totally overrated.

Tomorrow I have a PowerPoint presentation due in English. THAT I HAVEN'T STARTED YET.

This weekend is busy with various weekend-type things. Semi-worthless, especially if KayTar keeps boycotting nap.

Monday, complete English and Philosophy assignments for the week, because there isn't any other time for it.

Tuesday, press conference day, followed by an evening of Anatomy class.

Wednesday, make up missed A&P exam.

Thursday, take A&P lab practical over material that is completely UNRELATED to the material I'll be tested on the day before.

Friday, KayTar's ARD meeting. Finally.

Saturday, collapse into an exhausted pile of misery, sob for a while, then study for A&P.

Sunday, see Saturday's agenda and repeat.

Monday, studying for Tuesday.

Tuesday, A&P final. Over new material that we started tonight. SIX CHAPTERS BETWEEN TODAY AND THE FINAL EXAM. SIX CHAPTERS OF NEUROLOGY! SIX! We have exactly one class period that isn't filled with testing between now and then, so I'll be teaching myself these glorious SIX CHAPTERS. And then memorizing them. Ugh.

Wednesday, Philosophy final.

That's as far as I know. I also have an English final that week, but I don't know the date yet. SUPER FUN!

And then, of course, I'll have to do the normal things, you know, breathing, maybe eating, possibly sleeping, and keeping my children clean, clothed, and fed.

On the upside, the press conference doesn't seem quite so daunting at the moment. It's more like, "Ooooh, 6 hours of child free time in a car I'm not driving. Perfect for studying!"

Any chance I can get my hands on Hermione's time changer? Somehow I doubt the one they sell on Amazon will be very effective. Drat.

Hang in there honey! You can do it.

Beck said...

You're a bit busy, eh?
May is going to be a CRAZY month at our house, too.

Hubby just emailed me a list of about 12 things that he wants/needs to get accomplished just for tonight and tomorrow. Sunday will be taken up with the March of Dimes March for Babies.
P.S. I think I would rather have my schedule than yours. I HATED studying for tests! Good luck.

My daughter was just asking for a time changer...You can do it. Sleep is over rated anyway :)

My head hurts just reading this! The good news is that the busier we are, the faster time goes, and the sooner we've got the laundry list checked off. Keep your chin up, if anyone can do this it's YOU!

Becca said...

You can do it! Just take one thing at a time. You're amazing!

Julie Pippert said...

What can I say! Hang in there!

Mimi said...

Holy smokes, Kyla!

You know, if anyone can do it, it's you: you're so organized and focused. You can do it. Then you can collapse in a heap and we will all lavish you with praise and pity :-)

Karianna said...

You are going to get through this. You are one of the strongest people I know. And you already know neurology - you can take the final right now. ;-)

Wow, what a week you have coming up. Just take deep breaths and take it one day at a time.

Coming from a mom to a newborn...sleep is entirely overrated. :)

crazymumma said...

One step at a time. You, of all people can do this.

Aliki2006 said...

Good luck--hope things calm down and the madness ENDS!

Don Mills Diva said...

That sounds pretty crazy Kyla but I have a pretty strong faith in your ability to do just about anything...

Katie said...


Shouldn't you have that one covered already ;) See, the littlest 'tar is just helping you study long before you even returned to school!

PJ said...

Just do the next thing. You'll make it! One foot in front of the other! Prayers!!

Holy crap, that's a loaded schedule. You amaze me in so many ways. I know you'll get through this.

And I'm excited for you about the press conference.

kittenpie said...

Yowza. I do hope it lightens up after that?

I was getting upset because gardening was cutting into my Qi Gong and Yoga
thanks for sharing.
Overwhelming and daunting as it is

Christine said...

Okay, I love this because I know exactly what it's like (minus the kids).
