First day of classes

WELL THE DAY HAS ARRIVED and there is no turning back! Summer break is officially over. My first class starts at 10:45 this morning and I am scheduled to finish my second class and leave campus at 4:15 p.m.

I am sure I will get right back in the school groove even if right now that seems like an unlikely statement.

My goals for the day?
1. Treadmill 35 minutes
2. Pack my book bag and a light lunch.
3. Head out the door at 10:20 a.m.
4. Maintain positive attitude.
5. Remind myself that I don't have to figure it all out on the first day.
6. Come home and make dinner with my husband (who is going to be on a local news program this morning at 10 a.m.!)
7. Watch the taped version of husband's interview.
8. Relax.
9. Get things together for tomorrow's classes.
10. Get to bed by 10 p.m.

  1. Re: No. 10...

    I'll give you one reminder :) Happy first day back sweetie!

  2. Hmmm I always make my husband "cook" on school days (which means take-out or dinner out).  I tell him I'm too mentally exhausted to cook!  Of course, I do all-day classes on Saturdays, leave the house at 730am, class until either 4pm or 6, and then the 1.5 hr drive home. 

    Hope things went well! My first day of fall school is next Saturday.  Today I'm hanging with my sis and her 5 kids!

  3. It appears you are off to a good start. My school schedule begins on August 29.
