Drum Role Please...

I know it's been almost a week since my last blog, trust me I was having blogging withdrawals, but every time I tried to have a moment to myself, it was never meant to be! Don't you hate that? When you think you can plop down at the computer desk, while breathing a sigh of relief because FINALLY there is hopefully going to be no distrations, only to be sadly mistaken. Hellloooo...didn't you get the memo? Your a mommy, there is noooo such things as breaks! Hey, a girl can dream can't she? Anyways, besides is serioulsy kicking my booty.

On the upside, the last time I blogged, I was rambling about how I was nervous and unsure about taking my first microbiology exam. I am HAPPY to say...ALLLLL the studying paid off!! I PASSED!! I really...really...passed! At first I wasn't so sure I did because after everyone finished and turned it in (btw-I was last to finish..sad I know) our professor went over the questions. I was sooo sure I didn't pass, I began to feel down in the dumps, so to say. The next morning I still felt blah, even AFTER having my two cups of morning life!!!! I arrived to class, our professor handed us back our tests and when he handed me mine, he handed it back facing down!
GREAT...was he trying to tell me something? At first I was reluctent to turn it over, I just sat there staring at it, trying to prepare myself mentally to stare defeat in the face! Here goes nothing!

WHAT!!?? Is this some sort of joke? Did I read the grade right? Sure did, more than a dozen times! Do I have the right test? Yup...that's my name! WOW...I'm sooo excited...and I just can't hide it! (ok I really didn't sing that, but internally I was singing and dancing up a storm!)

This stressed out, pulled in a million different directions, sleep deprived, coffee drinking, nose in the books for hours, nursing student, mother of two, passed my first microbiology test with an 82%! turned out to be a good day after all.

That was the start of my week, but it is nowSaturday, and I am looking up at what seems like a mile high worth of reading and homework on top of all the other to do's on my list. Oh well...I better suck it up and get to work! it's going to be a loonnnggg weekend! *Sigh*
