A sense of accomplishment
Technically, I’m not done yet. I still need to take a science lab over the summer, but other than that I’m done with my BA in Sociology (Minor in Anthropology). Since there is no commencement ceremony for summer graduates, I got to walk with the spring class. I’m taking three classes this summer and will start graduate school in the fall. Grades were posted today and I am more than a little relieved. I was sure that I was going to get a B in my Social Research: Methods class.
In other news, I got a job. Work during the day, school at night and five kids still at home. It’s funny… You wouldn’t believe how much crap I’ve had to listen to over the years because I was a stay at home mom. Everyone acts like I don’t do anything. Now that I’m working, I get to hear about all the stuff I don’t do anymore because I am at work. Figures. Can’t win for losing! Seriously, though, it is a big adjustment and not just for everyone else. I feel a little guilty because I really like working and getting paid for it is even better.
We are busier than ever. Butterfly is still in softball and plays one or two games a week. This weekend she is in a tournament and Mike is entering another chile cook off. I’m tired, but happy… and so grateful to everyone who has supported me since I returned to school. It has been a lot of work, but so worth it.
