Hey there! So let me start by saying that I have used parts of my brain that I haven't used in nearly 23 years! Ouch! This morning I got up at 5:30 am to get ready and drive into town to catch the light rail (subway above ground) into Denver for my first day of classes. Can I just say that I seemed to be the only happy one at the station. I was so excited that it was finally "That" Monday and that it was finally time to get back to school. I really felt like a kid on their first day, new clothes, new school supplies, no lunch box but the equally important Starbucks' card! Yup that was me at 6:50 am at the station! Shiny faced and ready to go. Fast forward to 11:30, I am as old as the professor and infinitely more conservative. There are 12 of us in this class and I am old enough to be the mother of 11 of them! So modified mindset is in order, remember what it was like to actually be a young, fresh out of high school kid and try to remember I am not their Mom! LOL! I have just spent three hours doing homework and am still so very excited to be back! Please remind me of this in about 3 weeks or so:)
I haven't gotten any stitching done this last week, sigh. I have been working on my algebra. I can assure you I have not used algebra since I left high school. So I have enlisted the help of Demitri to reacquaint me with the oh so fun formulas and concepts. Alas, now the tutor has left for a week in Rome. Yup, Rome. So I am left to continue forward on my own. I should mention that I really am grateful for the Internet. I found a couple of websites to aid me whilst he is out and about touring fabulous places and getting a real world/global education. Sigh, someday my sweetheart and I will get there. Demitri promised lots of pictures:)
Well, I think that covers it for now, I have to get upstairs and start reading Chapter 1. Until next time, TTFN!
