And no, I'm not speaking of NCAA Men's Basketball.
I'm speaking of the madness that has been the month of March for this family.
I mentioned the sickness that has been plaguing our house for the last three weeks, but that was only the beginning.
I started back at work on March 4th, and the sickness made that transition about a million times harder. I have to say, that being back at work has gone better than anticipated, but it is still hard. I've stayed busy and that has at least kept my brain occupied. I can't help but get excited driving (OK, lets be honest - speeding) to Jessica's at the end of the day to pick up my little man.
I'm learning to deal with a day in the office after a crummy night's sleep. Good thing this baby is cute.
Things got real interesting when my graduate program comprehensive exam was handed out on March 11th. I knew this was coming and I knew it would be intense, but the timing could not have been worse. So, for the last two weeks I have been spending an amazing (and not in a happy way) amount of time pouring what brain function I have left into proving I've learned a thing or two over the past two and a half years.
Did I mention that I've been attending and doing homework for my regular Wednesday night class all this time, too?
I'm happy to report that I have completed the exam (which I could not have done without loads of help from Ryan, Momma, and Rachy). And as long as reading through it one more time doesn't cause me to vomit - I'm hoping to do so before submitting it tomorrow.
Only six more weeks of the semester left before I will be done with my Master's program. Hallelujah.
Needless to say, I am ready for the month of March to be over.
I will be oh-so-proud of myself when April gets here. Especially if my head is still attached to my body.
