I made it through my first semester of grad school! I ended up dropping one of my courses in the beginning of the semester because the workload was too much. I have to get my work done when the kids are sleeping and there just aren’t enough hours in the day for me to take the full course load at this point. It may take me a little longer to graduate,...

The pulmonary specialist I went to put me on a course of ibuprofen for 2 weeks. I felt mostly...

I intended to take a short blogging break over the holidays, but my break went on longer than planned after my grad classes started last week.  I spent the first half of the week feeling completely overwhelmed by the amount of work I had to get done in just the first week.  How was I going to get it all done?
