Everything I've been doing has finally caught up with me. Friday morning I woke up feeling awful and beyond exhausted. I'm feeling better now. I guess I just needed a couple of days of sleep.

Of course, because I missed school on Friday night, I will now have to do two make up classes. One for when I'll be at the writer's conference and one for the class I just missed. I really feel like I can't get a break. I feel overwhelmed by what I have to do and what is required of me by my job, school, my family and just normal life things.

Before I head off to the conference which is in a little less than two weeks, I have to get my oil changed (I'm over 3,000 miles and I'll be driving 400 miles to the conference) I have my mid-term, and we're having my niece's birthday party here at my house. I also need to get to the dentist, I have a cavity and I keep having to put off the appointment because of my schedule.

I feel as though there aren't enough hours in the day and enough days in the week.

There are some things going on also that are hard to deal with emotionally. Maybe those are making things even harder for me, who knows.

At any rate, I can't wait for this semester to be over!!!! I was going to take a course over the summer... two months (instead of the normal five) of two nights a week till 10, again, but the work willl be heavier because it's so much shorter than a regular semester. Should I? Shouldn't I? Right now I'm thinking, "Oh hell no!" but, I want to finish school sooner rather than later.... so I may change my mind.
