School Blues

Ok so it's not really that bad...I just couldn't think of a title for this post.  I figured I should post some kind of school update since I'm such a boring blogger lately and school is about the only thing interesting that I have going right now...besides Nigel bahaha.

I'm taking 13 hours this semester consisting of aerobics, adult life skills, a practicum at an adult day care for adults with developmental disabilities, family and community resource class, and child welfare.  Surprisingly, aerobics is going to be the hardest from what I've heard/experienced.  I usually do not sweat except for my armpits...I've never been a face, leg, chest, back sweater.  Yesterday in aerobics we were just doing some testing to see where we were at so that she can grade us on improvement. Holy. Cow. Between that class and then hiking for 10 minutes all around campus in the ridiculous heat and up 4 flights of stairs, it's needless to say I was dripping by my next class. Ewww.  Fortunately, it wasn't stinky sweat...from what I could tell at least...too much info?  I'm looking forward to getting in shape for the first time since high school, though!  Yesterday, I also went to an abs and butt class and the yoga group fitness classes at the rec.  Jake met up with me after those classes and we ran half a mile.  I'm trying to get up to jogging a mile without stopping before we have to do it in aerobics on Monday....we'll see....

My other classes don't seem terrible.  The community resources class is going to be a LOT of work.  We have to do all these different assignments finding types of community resources and then by the end of semester we have to turn in a binder with 200 different agencies that could be resources for our clients when we graduate. Buhhhh.

I also have child welfare with a teacher I had last semester and I'm dreading it.  She doesn't allow excused all. And I'm just leaving it there.  I just typed out a whole rant and then deleted it...not worth getting all worked up over again.  Basically I spent all night in the ER and had a note from a doctor saying do NOT go to class or work for 2 days and she still wouldn't let me make up anything.  She told us even if our grandma dies or we're in the hospital, we can't make up anything we miss.  So I'm kind of dreading having her once a week for a 3 hour long class.  If I miss one day, I miss an entire week's worth of stuff...hope I don't get sick at all....

Between classes, homework, working out, and trying to stay on top of keeping this apartment clean, it's going to be a busy semester.  Busy is good makes it go by more quickly.  9 months from now I'll be a graduate for all of about 2 weeks! Eeeeep!

Confession Friday

I confess, once again, that I feel like I have nothing to blog about.  I also just typed worry about instead of blog about. If only that were true...there's plenty of things to worry about :/

I confess the only time I left the apartment this week was church, lunch after church, grocery shopping, and going to Wal-Mart last night to get Jake oreos...which turned out to be good because we ran into Eric and Hannah and went to get ice cream with them :) Yay for best friends :) But that doesn't change the fact that I'm a loser with NOTHING to do until school starts.

I confess that our guest bedroom is FINALLY (almost) completely only took almost 5 months.  I just got so frustrated the other day and it stressed me out too much to even go in there because boxes and crap were EVERYWHERE so my amazing husband went through most of the boxes and got rid of a ton of stuff. He's so great :) I sat there and tested a bag of writing utensils to see if they still  He did find one of my favorite stuffed animals that he made me at build-a-bear :) and my hair straightener, bronzer, bobby pins, and some eye shadow.  I was a very happy camper :)

I confess that any cooking skill I had before this summer went out the door when I stopped cooking for 3 months.  There were tears last night...which has not happened since the very first night I cooked dinner for us....over a year ago.  It was awful.  This morning I put dinner for tonight in the crockpot and it was another near meltdown.  It better be dang good is all I have to say or I may give up.  I need enough money to hire a chef......

I confess that Jake and I want 4-6 kids and that stresses me out just thinking about it.  I love children and as soon as we have them I plan on being a stay-at-home mom as long as it's financially doable but cooking for that many people, especially when our kids are teenagers, stresses me out.  Is it normal to stress out about stuff so very far in the future? Ughhhhhh.

I confess that I'm excited/nervous/worried about the fact that a year from now Jake and I could be potentially buying a house who knows where?!  Crazy, right?  For the first time in a long time, I have no idea where we'll be a year from now.  I don't know where I'll be working or if I'll even be able to find a job.  I don't know when we'll start having kids.  I don't know where we'll be moving or when we'll have enough money saved up for a house.  We're hoping Jake's new job goes well enough that we're able to pay off our debt (ughhhh) and save up enough in the next year for a nice down payment on a starter home :)

I confess that I kind of like school.  Am I a total weirdo?  I love getting new books and notebooks and pencils.  And then about a week into school I'm counting down the weeks until the semester is over :/

I confess I wish that I was a better homemaker.  I want a garden and to always have a clean home and delicious dinners with the right amount of fruits and veggies every day.  It's hard though! And I know it will only get harder when we have kids :/ Boo...I just want to be a June Cleaver...but most days it's too much for me to even drag myself into the shower let alone to be a perfectly kept up woman with a perfectly kept up house.'s problems, right?
