will work for books

Tuesday was my first day of school (as you all know). We didn't do anything but go over policies and procedures and BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. It was my Math class, the teacher seems super nice and ready to help us unfortunate souls that couldn't even get into their desks correctly :)

When I got to school that day, I was surprised at how calm I really was. At no point did I start crying or breaking out into a cold sweat (as I've been known to do). I did almost pee on myself walking to class but for those of you who know me, know that is just, well ME!!

I made it to my building and the bathroom and into class with all of 30 seconds left. Not to bad after I spent 20 minutes in the parking lot nightmare.

When I left there, I felt like, OK if you have been brave enough to show yourself on this campus during regular school hours and you didn't fall on your face, walk into something OR pee on yourself, then you are OBVIOUSLY meant to be here! I have a whole thing in my head about the signs that are given to me and I take them very seriously (Lena you can stop smirking at me now:)

I ordered my books and I have to buy a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR calculator!! TI- something or other. It's not even cute and as far as I can see there is no vibration mode on it, so REALLY what am I paying for??

After today when I pay my tuition, books and the non vibrating calculator, we will be POOR. I informed the kids no ice cream runs and we will be having sandwiches A LOT in the next 2 weeks.

But everyone was OK with that, because they know that it's mommas time.

And most importantly, so does momma!!

Thanks again ladies for your support, I received 2 emails yesterday that brought me to happy yet ugly cry tears. You guys are awesome and I'm so excited to be on my next chapter with you all!!

Ok, the calculator does sound pretty lame, but it sounds like you are doing just fine. If you can deliver 3 babies this will surely be a breeze. I'm proud of ya!

Keep the calculator. Your kids will use it in school, trust me I know from personal experience. Just hope they don't 1) loose it 2) loan it or 3) get it stolen. How do I know this? personal experience.

Glad you had an awesome first day! How many hours are you taking and what are your classes?

Does the calculator play music or videos? Take pictures? Make your lunch? For $100 it should really do something more than just calculate, right?

Congrats on not peeing on yourself! Here's hoping to many more wonderful non-peed-on school days!
