It's four in the morning, Isaac has gotten up three times already and now is sleeping on the floor beside me. He came into the study/guestroom a few minutes ago demanding that I give him the toy I bought him. I finally told him I had no idea what he was talking about and he threw his hands up in disgust and said he must have just dreamed the whole thing.

Jason' s aunt emailed me this water art piece it was really interesting.

I failed my first online Patho test. Studied the way wrong things. I wonder how other people did? It's hard not having that interaction with fellow students or the interaction with the teacher to see what he/she emphasizes. Is it bad to hope all did poorly and they'll grade on a curve? When left to my own devices, I gravitate to the things that are interesting to genetics and birth defects....not so much sodium/potassium/calcium balances (guess what was the heavy balance of the test ---- not sex linked-chromosomal disorders...I could have answered those questions!). It sucks to actually study hard and not do well.

Now....on to studying for my A&P2 test today, then the lab quiz tomorrow.
Tuesday afternoon I'm gonna RELAX and not THINK about school; you will find me mixing a batch of Mojitos to enjoy with the neighborhood 'sister wives' while we take in the premier of Big Love(thank you Shaina for the use of your tivo). And yeah yeah, it's getting mediocre reviews but I am strangely fascinated by it, at times repulsed, and at times envious of the whole family dynamic they have created on that show. I'm not much fond of critics, see
Colleeno's blog to see why.

Hang in there. Remember, this is a pre-req. to a program you've already been admitted into. Get a passing grade and move on, ok? I know it is hard to let go of the "but I want to master this" though. But, if you do that, you'll be fried before you ever get to the good stuff, ok?

Hugs from over here..

You're bringing mojito's! Atta girl. So I already know you did better on todays test, things are looking up.

I'm cleaning the absolutely disgusting fish tank. I think that needs to be added to the girls weekly chore list; right after stop over feeding the fish. Fish are gross. Why do I have fish? Obviously a pre-puppy thing.
