Sunday, April 6

The quest for a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) continues.....

So, it's 11:11pm on Sunday evening & I still have hours of work ahead of me. So rather than whine & complain, I decided to "take 5" and type up a quick entry and focus on a few little things that I am thankful for this evening.....

Let introduce you to my "Best Friend" this semester....well, I mean not BFF like my dearest "Jennicrust" but it sure has gotten me through the past few months! I *heart* Zipfizz Liquid Shots! This stuff puts those popular energy drinks to shame without all the yucky side effects! Love it! Oh & did I mention the one I just downed about 15 minutes ago..........

Next on my list is the one, the only Diet Coke!!!! Seriously, I love this stuff so much that if I was still in 8th grade I'd have "Stacy 's Diet Coke" all over my notebooks! I don't care what anybody says, this stuff is the elixir of life! And it is excellent as a Zipfizz chaser (but only when I am working on a major project)!

Okay...I think this photo speaks for itself...enough said.....

So why am I up so late if you ask?? Well I am working on a major research paper for my Western Religion class. I have been working on this monsters for days now, but I just can't seem to get it 'wrapped up'....

Secondly I have to be logged into the University website at midnight to secure my classes for the fall. One of the 2 classes I NEED only has 15 slots....wish me luck!

Ya know, I was talking to my husband on the phone this evening & he was wonderfully supportive of how hard I am working right now. And while I was tempted to bask in his sympathy for a minute or 10, I forced myself to buck up.......

I told him I am grateful for the following:

~that I have the opportunity to go to school at all (I know there are so many women out there who will never have the opportunity)

~that he is so supportive of what I am doing (he has even turned a blind eye to the ever-mounting housework that needs done around here)

~ that I have an uber awesome Mom & BFF who are willing to help me out with the kiddos when I have class

~ lastly that overall I have the 'ability' to succeed in school. I know that sounds conceded...what I mean, compared to many of my classmates school comes fairly easy for me... note I said comparatively................

Okay...enough rambling...I guess my point is that I am trying to stay focused on the positive things right now. If I start to let the 'negative' creep in ,it can get out of control & well I just can't waste my time or energy on that garbage.....

Update: Score! I got all the classes I needed for Summer & Fall semesters!

On another note please keep the Smith family in your prayers. Angie's C-section is scheduled for 2pm Monday. I am amazed by this family's faith and their ability to trust in whatever God's plan is for baby Audrey.

Hooray for getting all your classes!

I should make a list like this. If you look at my blog you'll see why I need a PMA...

*sigh*

Good work for getting all your classes.

Your post was very optimistic. I am only optimistic when I have a glass of good wine in my hand!!
