Homework posting break....

....so today I stayed home--no classes on Wednesday, but Wednesdays have become the day I seem to take Mackenzie to where she needs to go. Couldn't happen today as I have too much school work to do. We'll 'run the streets' a bit Friday.

Had to finish a graded 'learning module' for my 100% online labor class that was due today, covering 3 chapters. Would've been done with it a few days ago but got bogged down in other school work and I also applied too much analysis to one question in the module and the word definitions. So much so, I couldn't figure the question out. So I went to see the professor before class yesterday--I have her for my 2 classes at Kent's main campus too. Explained my question and she saw my point, and also said I was analyzing like an attorney. I shan't bore you with legal definitions and analysis.

Anyway, overnight we got about 6" of snow and I saw this morning I had about a 1" ice dam on the back porch roof, cuz y'all know the bitch--ice dam destroys pantry, roof gets replaced--as does pantry, they fail to say ice dams will continue, FUCK THEM! Since I got young grasshopper Mackenzie back to Ohio, I thought it best to deal with it myself instead of paying someone--plus I'll know when I'll show up. If we get another big blast of snow, say during midterms, I might pay someone provided I arrange an EXACT time---3 out of 4 midterms will be take home. Then I'm not half listening for someone. Honestly, at the end of the day, it's usually easier for me to do it. I know exactly what to do, how to do it, I know when I'll be there, and money stays in the bank.

Finished my learning module, started my bath, then bundled up to play 'clear the roof and curse a certain construction company'. Eddie came over at that time with his snow blower to clear the driveway, so I didn't have to shovel, as I was gonna have to do that too. He knew I had school work to do. I know he also likes to be able to 'play' with his snowblower. Had him hold the step ladder I have set up at the other end of the back porch to ensure the down spout is clear. It gets wobbly. I could move the extension ladder against the back porch and move it to the other end, but it's a pain plus I have the ladder set up perfect. So wobbly step ladder it is!

Have worked on laundry, did dishes, and am trying to finish my reading for Family Law--Monday class--tonight and the review questions that were assigned. Have to do a legal case for that class; but I will get to that tomorrow morning. Have to read chapters in Legal Research and in Civil Procedure as there's going to be an assignment in each of those classes given tomorrow. The Civil Procedure one she said is easy and is due Friday, yes, the next day. Legal Research is a legal brief and that is due Sunday. I have a legal brief due on Monday for my labor class, of which I haven't even looked at the case yet. Typical.

Was going to go grocery shopping tomorrow, drop off perishables and then go to school; but think I'll go grocery shopping Friday so I can try to get chapters read tomorrow before class and get that out of the way. I'm going out Friday anyway with Mackenzie, so I can just stop at stores then.

HI Senior Detective Rice!!!!! Spring break is the last week of March, I'd be happy to travel over yonder to see ya!! Yes yes, I'll get to emails! I know you understand. Is it surprising I'm a conscientiousness and studious student? I did not misspell conscientiousness and that is sort of scary. Had to check that spellcheck was working-it is!

Back to Family Law I go. I have to things to say about this class; but that's for another blog entry on another day and um, well, the end of next week looks free, so I'll jot that down in my calendar. Then we go into midterms the last 2 weeks of February and nope. No way no how. Will let Mackenzie know that Friday. Maybe Eddie can pinch hit for me if she has a pressing errand. Yes, I'm the responsible adult in her life. No, no I don't like either of those words: responsible or adult. Combined, together, with me?! Surprised I haven't spontaneously combusted!!

RE: Re: Just a question…
I just had quick fleeting thought of 'who's Mackenzie?' but then thought no more about it and thought it must be someone I had forgotten about until I saw that franklanguage had asked!

Message me an answer too please lol!!

Re: Re: Just a question…

RE: Re: Re: Just a question…
I had that bad coughing cold throughout dec and jan and it completely wiped me off my feet for weeks! (still say it was a really really bad cold though and not flu!) I then spent first two and half weeks of feb catching up on all the things I'd needed to do while I was ill - and there was LOADS of things! Then at the beginning of this week I had to do my usual three day jelly diet (can't have the rocket fuel!) so I could have my routine camera examination - which was all looking fine and lovely. Thursday and Friday I decided to have two days relaxing and playing sims3 and then here I am today catching up on LJ :)

The flat still needs a clean but I'll start that on Monday.

It looks like you are enjoying being back in education, and sounds like you are doing well...like doing far more than you actually need to!

Yes, I AM enjoying it! Haven't blogged about it yet, but I dropped the Family Law class at the branch campus because you didn't learn anything PRACTICAL---as in HOW to draft briefs, complaints, forms, things a paralegal WOULD DO! Instead, the professor read from the text book basically and the tests were True/False! 4 others in that class had had him before and said it was an easy A, but I don't WANT an easy A. Plus, what good would it do you if you get into Family Law and you're asked to draft a separation agreement and you have no idea how to do that? Only know how to answer a T/F question about it? Ridiculous!!

This blog shouldn't be read by anyone! Don't say I didn't warn you!

Spare some change?
