As I'm sure you can probably tell from my last post, life has been a little crazy lately. The transition from summer to fall is always difficult, but this semester just seems to be a little worse than normal. I've tried to put my finger on it, but I can't quite place the difference, and frankly, it might just be a combination of it all.
To top off the busyness of the week, I now have the busyness of the weekend to look forward to! I am sooo not complaining about this, because I LOVE MY FOOTBALL PLAYERS... but it is difficult to go cheer for a team, when they aren't exactly a winning team. I want my boys to have the satisfaction of winning, so that they are not so frustrated during the week! (And by my boys, I hope you know I mean my college students!) I have been at MCM for 3 years, and at the pep rally yesterday, I realized that 4 of the 5 team captains are my previous students! Over 3/4 of the team are students that I have either had in class, know because they are friends of students, or students that I currently have in my class. Anyway, I want to spend my Saturday at the field cheering on my boys.... but it's difficult to come home and see all the laundry that needs to be done etc and not feel a little guilty about spending my day at the field. But... I will soooooo go cheer em on, because the benefit it does for them and the appreciation they show is way more than the appreciation I will get from my family when they have clean socks!
Anyway, keep Robert in your prayers. He's a little overwhelmed with work and school right now. He is taking calculus, statistics, government, and Spanish! Although individually the classes are difficult for him, all together with his other responsibilities, I think he's going a little batty!
