Well I am currently 1.5 into my school week…Enough time to say I’ve acclimated to my new role in life?
I have settled well into my classes.
I found out that the average age of a community college student is 29. I am the average?!.. Take that all you kids who look like you can’t grow facial hair yet!
The work load seems pretty light now.. but factoring in WHEN to do it is rough..
Here are the perks to my new life:
My house is CLEAN. I leave for school .. come home and it’s STILL CLEAN. I have been able to clean areas that usually get neglected… My laundry room actually has a floor under those piles of clothes… Who knew?!
I went grocery shopping by myself for the first time in probably 10 years… My bill was $30 cheaper since there was no one begging for this or that… I didn’t have to weasel out of those god awful car carts that have a gravitational pull to anything and everything other than a straight line…
I am starting to REALLY like the house being quiet. The first day it was creepy.. I kept thinking the old Sea Captain was going to whisper something in my ear. (For those that don’t know.. where I live people used to bury their family on their own land. There’s tons of random graveyards that people stumble upon in the woods. The only recorded burial on our property is an old Sea Captain..creepy right?) But now…. there’s no kids fighting.. I can do a task and actually finish it without being interrupted!
I also get to watch tv all darn day if I want… If I want to watch something MA I don’t have to wait until bedtime…
I get to listen to non Disney songs on the radio
By the time the kids get home I’ve have enough of myself and engage with them a little more. I don’t feel so drained or worn out.. And both kids loving school…
So far so good!
