Dear friends, I can not read a calendar.

I always come up with brilliant things to say when I am asleep, driving or have a baby in my hands. Very conducive to writing, yes?  And in case you have never met me – I am forgetful to an extreme degree sometimes.

A perfect example of that extreme forgetfullness?

I am taking summer classes, 2 right now and 1 I was SURE that started in July to give me only 2 classes at a time.  Only I was very obviously not sure, since that class #3 starts tomorrow. Monday. JUNE!

Not a good thing to forget considering that 9 credits is a lot at one time, and even more in the summer when we get to cram 16wks of papers, reading and nonsense into 6, 8 or 10 weeks.

Who needs to finish painting or unpacking or snuggling, eating, sleeping or spending time in the sunshine this summer?

I know I’ll make it through – possibly with less hair and a few more wrinkles but hopefully I’ll have a few weeks “off” before my fall classes start, so that is one bonus of all the madness.

But really? How did I make it 1/2 way through a doctoral degree and 1/2 way to getting a masters degree without being able to read or use a calendar?

I am obviously a functioning forgetter.
