Please help my sweetie out! James will need a little extra TLC the next 6 weeks! My new class is very intense and will involve a lot of research and writing. I am a virtual Dr. Jekyl/Mrs. Hyde when I have an important paper to write, and this time I have to write the first 4 chapters in my Action Research Proposal (between 40 and 80 pages). I have warned James ahead of time, but it always seems to catch him by surprise. I am going to owe him big-time when I finally get my master's degree in October!!!! Maybe we can spend a weekend in Myrtle Beach or something.

Barbara

40-80 pages! Wow oh wow! I have almost 7000 post here on DC and I doubt if they add up to that much. That's sure a lot of writing and thinking you'll do GREAT! And James will be fine!!! He can spend lots of time here talking to us all.

smiles, T

Great idea Buckytom! Hey, this class will be a cinch!!!

Oh rats! I just read the syllabus, and it says that if we use giant fonts, we have to use 8 1/2' by 11' paper rather than 8 1/2" by 11"!

Barb,
You will breeze right through this. All of us will keep James busy and try to make him half as happy as you do. Just tell him to come play.

kadesma Good luck to you both.

Wow Barb... it is a huge job, but I am sure you will ace it and all the hard work will be well worth it come October... (if you can do such an excellent imitation of James, you can do anything!! ) Best of luck to you!! Yeah, we will take good care of James, he is always a big part of DC family here!!

And when everything is over, I suggest a Roman Holiday for you two!! I am no Audrey Hepburn but I can be a fine tour guide and caterer for you guys!!
