I honestly admit that my accelerated Masters and Certification program is taking every second of free time and loose charged energy I've had in my body...my weekends are a two second seeming rush of joy and freedom and sweet love that are all-too-soon exchanged for heaps of work,grading, and other such teacherly things.
I have 4 certification tests to prepare to as well as a wedding to dream about (although I refuse to do my first post until we are engaged).
I just can't wait until my free December when I will be a graduate and back into the job market but this time, more properly earned for a real grown-up job. The kind of job that will pay my expensive medical bills and help save up for our house.
Last week, I was also absolutely sick to my stomach with a dreadful stomach flu lasting a whole seven days. I still have a bit of it but it's starting to FINALLY go away. I feel like I lost twenty pounds and everything I ate since last year. It was a complete nightmare and gut-wrenching pain.
I tried joking that it might make morning sickness easier once we start having babies in a couple years but you know, the weird thing with pain is how easy it is to forget that feeling until it comes back again.
I hope you are all having good Septembers. It's almost over though, you know. How did that happen, anyway?
