Grad classes are a hell of a lot of work and that is true no matter who you are. I just spent 12 hours working on homework today. 12 hours. Two chapters, two chapter outlines, an individual assignment, deliverables for the group work. I still have to answer the conference questions, and do the team group work this week.
And I am exhausted.
To top all that off, when fitting in the group work this week, I have to manage to do it between working five days (two of which I’ll be traveling out of the state), starting physical therapy for tennis elbow, attending a microsoft project conference, holding two team meetings for school from 9 to 10 pm this week, and working in at least three workouts.
Oh, and I have an oncology appointment tomorrow.
Work like this was tough BEFORE cancer. Handling it now while my system is rebuilding itself it pure torture.
But I can’t postpone my classes anymore. If I do, I risk not graduating. And I’m not dropping out. 2015 is my deadline to finish. And I’m damned sure going to do it, come hell or high water. Or more chemo. Hopefully not the last one.
On a side note, much of my husband’s family is in Colorado. There is much flooding where they are. My nephew and his wife and their 4 week old baby have been evacuated from their home and are staying with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. My elderly aunt and uncle are in Commerce City and have been told they may have to evacuate. I have a friend who owns a rental home in Estes Park. It’s a mess there.
Please keep them in your prayers.
Now, I’m going to bed.
