Do YOU know what I'M talking about?!!

Your honor, I'm pleading insanity. Insanity by the means of a Power Point presentation. That is what I told my husband to tell the judge when he commits me. Or at least I think I told him, maybe I told Lena, or maybe it was one of the people in my head telling ME to say that.

What were we talking about again?

Oh yes, the P word.

I had never done one before, never had a reason to. I've seen both my boys work on them and they always looked so pretty and creative. I was proud of them and patted them on their heads when they were done. All the time thinking, oh that's kid stuff.

Well HELLO kid stuff and welcome to mommas first OFFICIAL college break down.....

It happened on Saturday, early afternoon, and let me tell you it was not pretty. There were clinched fists pounding the table, tears, high pitched animal like screams and that was all just from me trying to pick a background color!

2 days and lots of Kleenex's later, my slides are officially done, my hands are board line numb, I took a huge sigh of relief and then realized I now have to do my outline and cite all my research materials in APA style.

Honey, I know lots of styles but an APA, AIN'T NEVER been one of them. (I'm taking English next semester :)

Slides were sent to the young girl in my group, that has made it known that SHE knows EVERYTHING about ALL this stuff.

God bless honey, I did mine with a rosary around my neck, because at some point I was speaking in tongues (my secret curse word language) and then felt the need to say the Act of Contrition OVER and OVER again.

Who's idea was this whole get an education NOW thing?

Yes, yes, I know MINE...

Girl! You're going to get through this.

I had to do my first one for a business presentation. I spoke in tongues, my head spun around, and even the dog wouldn't come near me.

Next time will be easier, I promise. Hang in there!
