The Dangers of Coming Home

So, I've been slacking.  I know, I know, what else is new, right?

A week ago, I was basking in the glory that is Phoenix, Arizona.  What I wouldn't give for some of that sun again right now!  Here in Chicago, it's only 55 degrees (again) and looks like it is going to storm.  Tomorrow is supposed to be just as dreary, just as gloomy, and it's doing NOTHING for my sense of motivation.

What I AM surprised about is how fantastically dark and skin-cancer-risking I got in only 2 1/2 days in sunny AZ.  Wow.  I guess I just haven't had such a great dose of sun in quite a long time - it's almost harder to hit up some sun here at home than it is out there simply out of the humidity aspect.  For the love of all that's holy, it's 98% here right now!  Yuck!!!

Also, I only have about 2 1/2 weeks of class left this term.  While I will be happy to see Algebra and Counter-Terrorism go the way of the Mammoth, in June I have elected to take THREE courses at once instead of the general full-term enrollment of only two - and I think that I might lose my mind a little bit more each day.  Especially since MetalliDad has just had his practices switched from Tuesdays to Wednesdays, and, of course, I have back-to-back classes on Wednesday nights.  So, not only do I have to apply myself to seminar, but I have to find something to keep the Munchkin occupied during that two hours each week.  I think I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew, but I want desperately to just GET that degree done, and move on to my Masters degree... the sooner the better!  Besides which, I need some BANK!  LOL

We'll see how things go!  I'm off to work on a paper for that dreaded Counter-Terrorism class - wish me luck!

Good luck with your classes! I'm a brand new follower and I must say that I am digging the droplets of Metallica references throughout your blog! LOVES IT!
