Crazy slowly going am I. 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, switch….
I really shouldn’t be posting right now but I need to take a short break and remember that there’s a world out there besides school.
My stress levels seem to be peaking again. How do I know this? I’ve been close to tears on several occasions in the past couple of weeks with no catastropic reasons to be upset about. I almost had a complete meltdown last Thursday and it wasn’t a pretty site. Thankfully, God made it possible for me to go on a women’s retreat last Friday evening and most of Saturday. It was a wonderful blessing and helped to refresh me by getting me connected back where I needed to be. I do have to admit though that I almost had a relapse on Monday.
I had a paper due for one of my classes on Monday. I had been working on it all weekend and had finally squished it into 7 pages. I went to turn it in and found out that it was supposed to be a maximum of 5 DS pages and I almost cried on the spot. This paper was a mini monster that I was looking forward to getting rid of and now it’s too long. Thankfully, my prof let me have until this morning to chop it down to the 5 pgs and I sent if off earlier this morning.
My presentation is for the same class this coming Monday. Why oh why did I not look at those due dates a bit closer?!? Anyways, I actually have all of the data that I need for my presentation and it shouldn’t really be a big deal (10 min presentations aren’t too terrible…not after having to do so many at any rate).
This afternoon I’m having a couple of the McDowell kids over at our place to help make a couple of pumpkin pies for Saturday’s Harvest Party and eat supper with us. We’ll be dropping them off with their parents tonight at the Annual church meeting. Tomorrow is the Harvest Party for the church, and I’m sort of one of the people in charge and coordinating the event. It’s been difficult at times but fun (the difficult part was juggling between school and getting ready for the event). I still have to make our costumes; KB and I are going as “Prayola” crayons. I’ll be red and he’ll be blue. I’m planning on making them tomorrow morning before set up at the church around 1pm. I think we’re all going to have a lot of fun despite the fact that we’re supposed to have our first Nor’easter that day (no snow in the forcast, thankfully, but 90% rain all day long with it getting worse in the afternoon).
Please pray for the Party that everything goes smootly and so that I can get things done on time and with relative ease (flipping out and being stessed is no fun for either of us). That’s all I’ve got time for now.
Peace and Blessings
