I have been sitting at this computer doing homework since 12 snacking on gooey no-bake cookies (they never hardened) and complaining about this week. Needless to say I am little bit stressed this week and it is only Tuesday. I have a project and test tomorrow. The project is 75% finished. I have been trying to do an interview for it and can’t get in touch with the dietitian. Luckily class attendance and participation account for 75% of my grade in this class, and I haven’t missed yet.
One morning at the end of last week (I don’t remember the day exactly) I woke up to frost on my car. The first of the season. Well the first one that I have woken up in enough time to see anyways. I get mixed emotions about the arrival of frost. I like that I can start wearing layers and scarves but truly miss the hot summer days. I know I am weird. :)
Friday was fun for me because I finally got to make a trip to Hobby Lobby. I was so excited. I think I did a happy dance in my car when I got out of school and headed towards Hot Springs. I spent about 1 1/2 hours in there and got some really great stuff. When I got home that afternoon, I got busy crafting until about 11:30 that night. I finished one wreath and started another (both for fall but one is mine and the other I am making for my dad’s house).
Another event that took place this weekend was that I made Basler Leckerli. A Swiss cookie. I am doing a food demo on Friday and this is what I am making. I don’t really care for it (I am chocolate kinda girl) but it smells like the holidays. It looks good too.
This week has just about maxed out my stress load. I am so stressed that I am only doing the minimum requirements to pass most of my assignments. I just have so much going on, it is hard to give a 100% to everything. I am trying to prioritize, but I am still terribly stressed. I keep thinking that next week is Thanksgiving and I get a 5 day break. However on that so called “break," I have to work on 1 project, 1 8-page paper, and a project summary. Fun! Fun! Good news is I only have 2 1/2 more weeks until finals.
I hope everybody has a great week and can find the strength to make it through this week.
