Today...

Bio and chem. I have to get at least 2 chapter study guides filled out for bio (would like to get 3 done), take one quiz. For chem I need to start reviewing the material from the the first two tests. Our final is cumulative, so I'm going to review each section by past exams. I need to get about and an 80% on the final to keep an A in the class, my grade right now is about a 93, but the final is 30% of our grade. Its kind of scary. In bio I think I only need about a 6% on the final to keep my A, because its only about 10% of our grade. I like that much better LOL! So I'll be putting in a bit more time on chem than on bio I think.

I'm going to try and get in just a short, light run sometime today too.

Trig class tonight @6, reviewing for the final. Its my last regular class of the semester.

This weekend...

Just studying tomorrow. Ugh.

Sunday is my second triathlon attempt. I am so not into it right now. Planning one right before finals was probably a bad idea. I'm also just not even wanting dh and the kids to go with me. I don't feel like dealing with their non-supportive attitudes...why did we have to get up so early? What time will we get home? Its hot/cold/windy, the drive is too long, there is no where to sit, blah, blah. I just don't have the patience for all that right now from them. And its dh too - if I say something like "I'm really nervous" his response will be "then why the heck are you doing this? I don't want to hear it, either stop complaining or let's just go home." His attitude really contributing to my not doing the last one. When I was freaking out about the wind he kept saying to either stop freaking out or shut up and go home. No, "I know your scared, that's normal, but I think you can still do it." So yeah, I may just prove I can do it by going by myself. Really symbolize turning over a new leaf. Of course they SAY they want to go, etc.

On the bright side (sort of) One month from today we leave for Vegas. Not that I am thrilled about spending time alone with dh right now. But its a work trip for him (conference/trade show all day) I just get to tag along for free. So I will have the days to myself, then we have business dinners in the evenings.

MichaelAnn - can you find a running group or a tri-training group to hook up with? Even if you can't train together all the time, you might at least meet a few people that you can get support & enjoy the excitement of the event with instead of your family. It just annoys the heck out of me to read about the way your family reacts, you really deserve to be supported & celebrated for

I did join a tri club here but haven't been able to make it to a meeting because of my schedule. I'm thinking about joining a 12 week group training program that starts in June with certified coaches put on by one of the local tri stores, but its $350 and I doubt I can swing that. My cousin in CA is super supportive (she does tri's too) and we chat a lot, but she's obviously not here.

Its really been extra tough that I feel like I have lost all my friends in the last few months too. School caused me to lose a lot (they were all career housewives/stay at home moms, so they didn't "get" my going back to school, plus I couldn't join in at PTA stuff anymore) The few I kept REALLY don't get the whole tri thing...neither the time or money I spend on it. I've even gotten some really snarky comments from people. But everyone I know here is very overweight, doesn't work out at all let alone train for something like that. So they pretty much ignore me now.

Yeah, I really need some friends with similar interests!

I think those days alone might be good and relaxing for you. Who is watching the kiddos?


Today I had math class. Now I'm waiting for my BFF to come over and we're going to go out to lunch with Madison. It's a nice day out so maybe we'll go outside in the back yard after lunch and before Maddie's nap.


Otherwise no other plans for today.
