Well, Im trying to catch up the week here in the Shannon household. It gets away from me so quickly these days. I am happy to report that I am basically done with this semester at school. Finally a breather.... I took my Spanish final this morning and think I did great on it! Such a relief to have it over with. It was a speaking final and I choke when I actually have to SPEAK a language. But the teacher was impressed and said that we (me and partner) were the best she had heard so far and she was already over halfway through the class! I have a History final on May 5th and then my Health and Diversity final which is no problem because our kind and wonderful teacher emailed the final to us and is giving us a week to complete it. Open notes and all!! I might actually end the semester with all A's...I think it will come down to the history final. Im a bit nervous....I might end up with a B+ in that class. We shall soon see. I have already registered for Fall classes as well. I am basically done with the General Ed classes required to graduate and this Fall I will start on my major classes which means lots of reading books and writing papers....I cant wait :)
Ive registered for Summer classes but they are both online so I wont actually have to go to school. Im looking forward to being home with the kids all Summer....(remind me of this post when Im in meltdown mode this Summer and praying for school to start again, ha ha :)
We have quite a few challenges already this year. I hope 2010 gets better. It seems as though every time we have a chance to get ahead financially, something comes along to knock us back down. It has been quite discouraging and emotionally exhausting but we are handling it the best we know how. Denver recently interviewed for a job with Boeing in South Carolina. Me and the kids would have remained here... Long story short, they offered him the job and he decided to turn it down for schooling reasons and of course because he couldnt bear to leave the kids. It might have been a good opportunity for him and he hasnt ruled it out completely....perhaps down the road a little more.
Well, I guess thats really all...nothing too exciting. Just some catch up news and a couple of posts below this one that are more entertaining!!
