Finally - I received my semester results for Uni.
PHEW - another 3 subjects out of the way. (Possum does the Happy Dance!!!)
Again - I had to drop one subject midway through this semester - and I will now only be taking 3 subjects each semester for the next 2.5 years.
Twice now I have tried to do the full load of 4 units - and have almost been put into the nut house on both occasions!!
This will bump my degree out to 5 years - but it's for the sanity of our wee family unit that has caused me to make this decision.
Trying to study full-time whilst trying to maintain some type of normality within one's immediate family - is just NOT GOING TO HAPPEN - especially in this 3-kidlette house.
The house looks constantly like a tornado has passed through the place / kiddy homework gets more and more stressful for us parents to cope with as each term rolls on / all contact with one's family and friends comes to a complete standstill (YES - we are still alive - we're just unable to string together any words into a coherent sentence) / and life seems to travel faster than the speed of light - and before you know it - I'll be finished this degree - but my children AND husband may well have left for greener pastures.
So - FIVE YEARS IT IS.
(surely that will mean that I'll be a smarter-er teacher in the end - huh??!!)I'm not saying that anything will get better - as 3 subjects is still a heap of work - but at least that way we may actually get through it all in one semi-held-together-with UHU glue-piece.
Here's to December 2010 - that's not so long away - is it?????
