~thankfully yesterday was really my friday and thank goodness because I felt quite overloaded in this short week.

~I am SOOOO far behind on my school WAY behind. I am hoping to make a dent in it on Sunday, but that might not pan out as I had hoped. My mom has bronchitis which means she likely won't be better by Sunday, which then means, she won't be able to watch E. it really frustrates me that O boohoos about watching E for more than a few hours on Sundays while I go study. I told him that this is what I needed to do way back before I started back to school. heck, in my opinion, he should feel lucky that I don't also go study 1-2 nights per week AS WELL, because we all know that I can't possibly get everything done on Sundays. so i'm not going to get my hopes up that I'll have ALL day to study on Sunday because then i'll just be let down when it doesn't work out, but I am going to insist on having at least 5 solid hours at the bookstore. he'll just have to suck it up!

~my dad's condo sold and he already bought a new E, my dad and I are off to see it today. the condo is in a 10 unit complex and he actually hasn't seen INSIDE the one he offered on, so he's unsure as to whether it's full hard wood floors or has carpet in the bedrooms like the one next door. he doesn't really care, but still wants to see the exact unit that he is buying. it's about a 90 minute drive from my house so we'll end up having lunch out there as well and make a day of it. should be fun. as long as E cooperates. ha!

~i guess the state fair has begun. O wants to take E to see all the farm animals and ride the (nasty) fair rides. I'm good with the animals, but fair rides creep me out, or maybe the people who run the fair rides creep me out, not sure. so that will be my saturday afternoon i imagine.

~in the running world...I ran 2 miles on Wednesday night after class and then did another 2 miles today after I got home. I'm taking Friday off. the calf pain is not gone but it was slightly different during today's run. more of a tight feeling vs. pain. i really like the 2 mile runs because i am done in about 22 minutes and that seems so quick compared to the 4 miles in about 45 minutes or so. i wonder how i'll feel after 90 minutes of running....hahaha...if i ever get to that point.

~have a good weekend!!

Fair rides creep me out too. I can't get on them because of the horrible, graphic visions of broken pieces and wonky wiring I get when I look at those things. Death traps...not that I should be telling you this before O takes E to the fair. :)

Good luck getting through your homework this weekend, and don't forget to set-aside some relaxation time too!

I hope O just realizes he needs to compromise with you and let you study on Sunday!

Have fun at the fair! And you WILL get to the point of running 90 minutes!! :)

Super excited about it being Friday too. It will be a long Friday for me, but so glad it's finally here!

You can do it. Just keep that running in your head. You. Can. Do. It.

I dont think 5 hours of studying per week is alot to ask at all. You are totally right!!! Suck it up O.

Fair rides!!! EEEeekkkkk!!! I wouldnt mind going on one, but the thought of putting my stepmonsters on one makes me a little ill. We are going to the fair today, just for the animals and high calorie food!!!

running??? whats that??? I cant wait to get to Africa and start running again. I feel crappy without it, but I've just been so busy freaking out that I havent had time to run :-)

Hope you have a great weekend! I love looking at new homes, although I can't believe your dad put an offer on one he's never seen the inside of!

Speaking of your running, your little Nike girl is cracking me up.

I'm just going to say this: Given the industry I work in, I would get on a carnie ride for any amount of money. Take that as you will.

Now. O. This *really* pisses me off. E is his child too. He needs to suck it up & then some. He's not babysitting his own child. He is being an active parent. He shouldn't be whining about 2-3 hours a week. He should be participating 24/7.
