Looks like we've made it

Well by the time the three of you are reading this it will be Friday. This means we have made it through the first week of school. And I might add by the skin of our teeth, what ever that phrase means. But what I do know is that this is a three day weekend. And that means no getting up at the butt crack of dawn on Monday and getting ready for the school day.

The first week of school is always rough. The alarm clock screams in my ears at 5:00AM, making sure a good breakfast is served, lunches that were made the night before end up in the backpacks, everyone adjusting to a new schedule and homework is completed and ready to be turned in and all that is just for me. Just kidding it's for the kids too. 

One of the courses I'm taking this semester is the second half to one I took last semester. I made an A in the last semester but for some reason I'm having a hard time getting motivated and the course work load is doubled so that may be a reason. However I had two quizzes to take this week and I made an 80 on one and a 90 on the other. Sadly they were optional and will not have affect on my overall grade for the course. What I'm really wanting to say to the professor is why have an optional quiz. If you are going to take the time to write the quiz, post it online and let a grade be assigned, then why not just take the dang grade. That was 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back.  But my grandmother always said if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all. Sorry grandma.

But on a good note, my work is done until Sunday, when the next quiz is posted (and yes this one is optional too) along with a discussion board forum. 

So until then, I'm outta here. I'm off for some fun in the sun with my boys. Y'all have a good one.
