Thirty-three and a half more hours

That is when I will be done, done, DONE with my classes! But right now I have a huge paper, a huge group assignment, and a PowerPoint to do so that I will have something to turn in tomorrow night! In case anyone has wondered where I have been most of the last 18 months, that was it. Up to my ears in papers to write.
This has been me-->

This will be Maidrite in two days-->

Barbara

Barbara, for those of us who are newbies, papers on what? Studying what?

Does your brain feel like it's been put in a blender? I'll bet it does.

Thanks everyone! It will be such a relief to be done. I was working all last night until 8:30 this morning. I had to miss church, which I hated, but fortunately my Sunday School teacher is also a high school teacher (and the pastor's wife) and she definitely understood. My poor poor husband! James (Maidrite for those of you who don't know he is my husband) has put up with a lot these last 18 months! Now I can be nice to him again! Ok, I'm back to work!

Barbara,

Your hard work and sacrifice will be worth every grueling minute of study when you get your degree in your hands. I'm so very proud of you!

This is Maidrite very soon.

Barbara, that's fantastic. I know it's very difficult to continue your education and have a life at the same time.

Congratulations on getting it done!
