Little bit of everything...

November 18th, 2013 at 11:09 pm

Our son has been awfully grumpy in the evenings lately. He normally goes to sleep pretty easy at night, but the last two nights have been a different story.. It's making it very difficult to get any homework done (I have a lot to do before the semester is over, which is December 13th). Guess I will be getting up at 5:00 a.m.

My college advisor told me that after this semester I have three classes to take and that one of those classes is offered every semester and the other two will only be offered Spring of 2014. I went to sign up for those classes when it came time to register and they are not being offered next semester. I am mad!! That would put graduation off a year (those classes are only offered Spring semester when they are offered). I'm trying to be nice because it is not my intention to get my advisor in trouble, but I do expect them to do whatever they can to help me graduate next Spring. UGH!!!!!

Anyway, the weekend was pretty productive. Fiance and I both got some laundry done (even some folding and putting away!), he cleaned the kitchen, and made supper Saturday, I made lunch Saturday and supper Sunday, got some shopping done, went to Church, went to his Grandma's place to have lunch with her on Sunday, watched our Huskers lose, and watched some football on Sunday also.. AND I got a little homework done.

While shopping this weekend, we had daughter look at some toys and show us things she would want for Christmas. While looking, she found a cheap book ($3.00) that she really wanted. Fiance asked me if we should just get it for her for that night. I told him no, and that we really need to quit just buying her things and have her purchase extra items that she wants with the money that she earns and gets to put in her "Spend" jar. We did that and she was pretty excited that she got to take her own money and purchase something. I think she felt like a big girl. When she got home and put the change back in her money jar I think she realized that there wasn't much there now, but she sure is proud of that book! We'll see what happens when she wants to purchase a more expensive item and has to take some time to earn and save up money.

Fiance is working overtime Monday - Thursday I guess to come up with his portion of the Christmas budget. Yuck! I guess if he can do that then I should definitely make an effort to get up early to get my homework done.

On my way home tonight I decided to stop and get a drink ($1.92) which I knew I really shouldn't spend money on anyway and was really second guessing it by the time I got to the window to pay. A boy that looked to be 3 or so years younger than me came up and said (with a smile) "I've got it, just pull up to the second window". I'm not sure if he was doing something nice or what, but I got my drink for free!!

Well, it's back to bed for me for a few hours! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

    How old is your little guy? Have you felt his gums for teeth trying to break through?

    He is 4 months old. I did feel his gums and didn't feel anything, but he has been chewing his fingers and blankets like crazy lately. I fed him some rice cereal this evening and that seemed to make him happy for a bit, but not long. I did give him some pain relief medicine because I'm thinking that teething has to be the problem.

    That does sound like teething.
    Darn Husker loss! We watched that game too. I just read that some of the Big 10 schools put wait lists on classes like you described, so that the seniors get priority for those once a year courses. University of Iowa is piloting that program this year to see if it will work for them.

    Sounds like teething to me for sure. I used to freeze my kid's teething toys (the heavier duty ones). It seemed to help a lot. I also used Hyland's teething tablets (tiny, dissolves under the tongue quickly) and their flavor free gel. And a low dose of infant's Tylenol at bedtime.

    I suggest you check and double check college information. Budgeting and costs causes changes every semester. They may offer courses you need if there is sufficient students wanting those courses. Does the college require you to register and pay a fee even if you are NOT taking courses next semester? Do your best to get everything in writing, at the very least take notes date and signed.

    Hope baby is more co operative with teething helpers.

    Thanks, LuckyRobin! I will be heading to the store to try those tonight!

    Thanks, snafu! I have everything in email. I have her email saying that the classes are offered Spring 2014, so that's an advantage! She emailed me just a few minutes ago and said she's sure that we can get something figured out! The classes I need are offered every other Spring, but I think she teaches them so I don't know why she didn't have the right year when she told me!

    I hope it works out with the classes you want!
