    one of the differences
    that i anticipate for this quarter is that i'm going to spend a lot more time in my Mom role. The girls have quite a few activities, and they have places to be. My schedule appears to be such that I can get them places. Myself. This is good, because we no longer have a babysitter (she's in France), and the after-school program does not escort children to soccer practice and music lessons and acting classes.

    I also like that I don't have class early. Last quarter (spring), I had a pretty hefty course load, and I had classes every day at 8:30. It was okay for me, because the high # of credits needed long days of studying, so being at school by 8:30 was necessary.

    This quarter, my earliest class is 10:15. I thought about using the freer mornings to get up later, walk the kids to school for 8 in my running garb, and then go running from there. However, I decided that was going to kill just too much of my day.

    So I'm getting up at 5:30, and am back by 6:45 to wake Emz up for her shower. but i don't freak out, i don't run around like a chicken with my head cut off. i slowly fix their breakfast, and then I take a shower, and then walk them to school. Then I come HOME and get all my crap together, and today, I left the house at 8:30, and was at school before 9. I had time to review my readings (one of the necessities now that I read things up to a week in advance) and slowly sip a cup of coffee before class.

    Time is a beautiful thing. That is my observation for the Month. I also am fully aware that I better drink it in, since next year at this time, I'll be getting all my suits and work garb cleaned so I can start work.
