Scattered is the best way to describe the way that my brain is working right now. I am finishing up my second grad class this week, counting down the four days to winter break, and trying to wait patiently for the rumors to start and referrals to get here.
My entire school year has been spent in kind of a haze. Learning so many new things and then turning around and teaching alot of them kind of numbs your brain after awhile. It has been 12 years since I graduated with my masters degree and things are different now. It is different to have the internet (better, but different). It is strange to take classes totally on the internet without an instructor there to help you out when you need it. I have enjoyed learning the information and it has helped me to be a more knowledgable teacher, but it can be tiring and stressful to try to get everything finished.
Now I am throwing "Mommy Brain" in on top of everything else and I am just shot. All I want to do is check the queendom or work in the nursery or go baby shopping (though it is hard to shop when you don't know how old the baby/toddler is or if she/he will definitely be a boy or a girl (BETTER BE A GIRL)) or be online talking to people who are in the same spot as us. I will be really happy when next week gets here and I can take a deep breath with no grad class and no school and just me and Alex hanging out and doing what we want.
I know that others in my spot are having the same problems. Gail and Julie have told me so. Lucky Jen and Steve are in Jamacia. laying on a beach someplace and relaxing. I haven't heard from Kristin in awhile. I don't know who else reads this that is a 1/5er, but leave a message if you've been lurking.
