please do not take your time

My teachers have three weeks to finish marking our exam, from the test date.
I am very happy that most of my teachers followed this, but am really unhappy with the one class that did not.
Seriously, our last exam was on April 11th. That is more then 5 weeks ago. And whats more, it was an oral exam, seriously, I am sure they knew our mark before we left the room. So whats the wait? And such a long wait.
And if all that is not annoying enough now my student loan is all messed up, because the university does not have a mark for me then the student loan people assume that I failed. This reeking some serious havoc on my banking.
Some good news is that I am sure I did not fail the class because the marks that they have put in the system are all looking very good.

Big Plans

I had such high hopes for this week. I planned on getting so many things done.
Making lobster soup with classmates, coffee with friends I had have been neglecting, serious gym time, spring cleaning, dreams.
None of this worked out as planned because since Monday afternoon I have been limping around with a cast.
It is not as bad as it sounds but I was running, with a phone at my ear, down some stair and at the bottom, tripped and smashed myself into the pavement. The phone looked rough, I looked worse. After complaining all evening I went into emergency with a fractured wrist. Got a cast now. Went back after a couple days because my leg was still hurting, a lot, and rather purple,  got told off by the doctor for not getting it looked at on Monday.
So these injuries have really slowed me down, in fact, can you imagine how long this is taking me to type with one good hand and one on the mend?
Actually, I am inventing my own one hand typing style, its going very well.
I should also mention how fun it is to explain this to everyone I run into. And I swear I didn't fall off a trampoline...
(thats what the emergency people thought)

It would seem that I do not know how to relax at all. Seriously, I am on holidays and still waking up stupid early, just like I had to for school, but I don't need to now!
Yesterday I woke up at 6 and had to wait nearly 3 hours for the kids to wake up and today is shaping up to be similar. I was up before 7 and now its 8:30 and no one else in the house is moving.
While this did give me time to check the camera batteries, empty out the car, start the laundry and pack our bag to visit my in-laws today. Now that I am done all that it is just waiting for everyone to wake up.
Then they have to eat and get dressed, I am already done that, then we hit the road, and providing I remember to bring my camera I will have some great pictures of the boys tonight.
The weather is beautiful and it looks like the perfect day to be out in the pool.
