BURNIG EYES....

I am huddled amongst the piles of "stuff" in the basement family room, trying to get as far away as possible from the fumes invading the main floor, due to the last and final coating of the hardwood floors. (whew... what a run on sentence that was!) Although I am buried under blankets sitting between the piles these fumes still have reached me.

In my mail today was the bill for my FINAL home study... also a reminder that I need to get my education hours done BEFORE the referral. So with total dedication, in earnest, I am reading, listening, think and doing the homework. I am really enjoying the new found knowledge which is making me more aware of what is yet to come. Sleeping plan? Feeding plan? PLANsssss???? The glare from my laptop is painful.

With fumes in my eyes I am cramming for the most important test in my life. I take comfort in knowing that there will be a huge learning curve... no pass or fail grades. I am sure, without a doubt I will be getting A's as well as F's during this life long time of learning with Tate. As long as my grade average is a B or normal... I will be good with that.

Fumes = Yuck!!

Studying for Tate = Wheee!!!

I know you'll be a great mom to your precious baby girl! 3 years behind you and only days in front of you! WOW!!! SO exciting!

Happy studying! Can you study at Starbucks without the fumes - well other than a warm, yummy smell of something delicious? :o)

You are going to be an A mom!! Don't study too hard and just think how beautiful those floors are going to look when the fumes are gone.

Holy Cow I'm still sleepy. (I know...lazy, lazy). I meant to say that we have not done the home work education either. There..my tongue didn't get tied that time. :)

Eeewww. Hope you get lots of air through your house, and the fumes will be gone! We actually moved out for 3 days, while we had our floors done!

Plans. Yep - you can have 'em... but you can guarantee that, on the most part... nothing will go to plan!!! Love Tate. Feed Tate. Change Tate. Put her to bed. Don't really think you can plan much more than that!!! ;) Have fun studying!!

Hang in there with those fumes!! I bet the floor will look amazing. Speaking of amazing - you will be an AMAZING mom. You've waited your whole life for this and you and Tate will learn the ropes together as a family.

I'm sure you'll be an "A" student when it comes to parenting! The challenge, of course, is that you are never done studying!
