Back to School...again

So, Spring Break is over and I really needed a few more weeks to get organized and just relax.  The dread of going back to class made me realize that I need to get this school thing behind me quickly.  I like going to class and meeting new people and learning new things, but I hate homework with a passion--I always have.  I'm a good student and I make good grades but the thought of writing papers and reading chapter after chapter of mind-numbing textbooks makes my head hurt. 
I hate the time of night when I finally get my kids tucked into bed and the house is totally quiet and I know that I have several hours of homework waiting for me.  Sometimes I just put it off and go to bed with the plan to wake up super early the next day. And I do that a lot.  I guess it's my "process" as a student.
You may think that after all the money I pay for school that I would be excited to comb through the books and find new ways to express my theories on paper.  But the truth is I liked being a stay-at-home mom who didn't have to worry about beginning a new career.  I don't like missing out on my kids' field trips at school and lunch dates with my friends so that I can sit for 2 hours on a hard plastic seat and expand my mind. 
And did I mention that I hate homework?


  1. I can relate to this in every way--my children are 3, 2 and 3 months. I have found a glass of wine always helps me with my homework, though!
