In November, I managed to miss two exams and a quiz. One teacher so graciously let me do the exam a day late and gave me all the credit I earned on it. (The other teacher didn’t even respond to my email explaining my mistake and asking if there were a way to make some points.) I feel pretty certain missing the one exam cost me my 4.0 in US Women’s History. I will have to live with it. Meanwhile, I hade a migraine most of yesterday and didn’t finish the one post due by midnight. I did it today and posted it anyway because I had to read the chapter and need to participate in the discussion.

I have another post due tonight, a quiz and comments due tomorrow, and a post I need to do for sociology… I’m feeling the burnout from these classes, dealing with chronic health issues, and constantly being on duty as a parent while trying to scrape by. Head Start still hasn’t happened and isn’t returning my phone calls. As much as I don’t want Wallace in public school, I think he would like preschool and I needed the time to work and study.

I will not be signing up for classes next semester as I need to focus on income and there isn’t anything offered online that I need for my IBCLC goal. I am working on my Amazon stock, hoping to get some Poofy customers, and looking into work from home positions. I have my foot in the door for a camp hosting job for spring through summer, but haven’t sorted out where it will be. I need as much income coming in so we can get on our way.

There’s an end in sight. Classes end in 10 days.

  1. Keep up your good work. I read your blogs and I definitely hear you, I am an SMC too with two kids- 5 and 6- and it is hard work. I am in a continual state of overwhelm and balancing everything – not everyone can do this. ❤️

  2. Thanks for saying hi! That’s close in age, I was ready about a year ago but couldn’t have done it when he was 1.
