1. Summer rainstorms. They make me feel like it's OK to hang around the house and chillax.
2. One more week of algebra class and that's it for the summer.
3. My mom, who is taking my kids to the movies in the morning so I can study.
4. My kids, who like to read. It keeps them busy when I don't want to.

Griping again...

Sometimes I hate my husbands job. While I am so thankful that he has a good job that pays well and provides for our family, they expect too much of him. He has been working on a project for the past week or so and he's been at work from 7am until at least 10 at night. He's even had to stay at a hotel because he's about an hour away and the nights are late and mornings are early. He said it's only going to be about another week or two of this but I hate it. I can only talk to him about 5 minutes a day. It's 11:15 here right now and I sent him a text telling him to call me. He's still in a meeting. How can a company expect a person to work from 8:00 in the morning until all hours of the night. It sounds slightly illegal to me. My biggest complaint about him traveling has always been that I can't get in touch with him when I need him. This is the pits. I hope it doesn't last long. I miss him.

I'm not sure if I have a leg to stand on here but I have to complain. I'm taking a 9 week algebra course. It's terribly hard and soooo much work. I took my first test 3 weeks ago and the prof has still not graded the test. I took the second (out of 3) test yesterday without knowing what I made on the first one. I emailed him and he said he's been out of town and then had internet issues but I say BS! As a student, I'm expected to meet deadlines, and be responsible for my work but I don't get the same in return from a professor and he's being paid by the tuition that I pay! I'm so pissed because I really want to know how I'm doing in the course and there are surely people who will want to drop based on their test scores. I just don't think it's fair to do that to students (who are adults) and I want to go over his head and complain. Do you think I have a fair argument? I don't want to piss him off, just in case there's some sort of curve but UGH! I'm frustrated!

AWESOME Weekend!

We had such a blast camping this weekend. I really wish we could have stayed for another night. My brother and his wife were there as well as our best friends from Austin and their kids, and some friends of ours from Houston and their children. My mom and niece also joined us. We swam, rode on the boat, hung out in the lake and just enjoyed ourselves in general. I realized that I miss my friend from Austin so much. We have so much in common and get along so well. I have never had a "best friend" as an adult but I consider her that. I wish we lived closer. It's now 7:30 at night, we're at home and the kids are sleeping on the couch. It won't be long before I join them!

Looking forward to the weekend

We just bought a boat and we're headed out to the lake for the weekend. The kids are so excited about camping and getting out into the open air. I, on the other hand, hate all of the work involved with getting ready. We spend too much money and work for hours trying to get everything packed and ready to go. I know it will be so worth it once we get there. I'm looking forward to some time with friends and a nice cold beer!
