Made it through Monday with just a few tears. I talked to my boss and, for once, got some praise! He told me he has every confidence in my abilities, that he was fine with me taking time off law school and that he wants me to do whatever I need for me. I know, I know, I should have kept it to myself. He doesn’t know all the gory details but I did explain that I’ve had quite a bit of stress lately and am trying to relieve some of it through taking time off law school so I can focus on doing the best job possible at work and spend some time concentrating on my son. He seemed to understand.
Made the $2,300 payment to the law school today. Ick. And called Pumpkinhead’s psychiatrist because he was BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS all weekend. I’m thinking the amphetamine she put him on (Adderall) isn’t working. She wants to see him Wednesday at 2 p.m. Of course. And I have an Ob/Gyn appt at 11:15 so I guess I’ll go into work in the morning and then work from home in the afteroon. Sigh…
Meanwhile my stomach keeps feeling lousy. I’m taking my anti-anxiety meds and they work… as long as I don’t think about things. Sigh… Remembered today that my Lowes and Home Depot cards were in my purse along with my corporate credit card (CRAP!). Also Pumpkinhead’s passport… Damn it all.
E-mailed the Dean. She said I can take spring semester off but have to come back in the summer for Admin Law or I will get an F. I took an incomplete in it last summer due to my unexpected surgery and the school’s policy is retake within a year or get an F. No problem for one course that won’t be offered again at night until Fall 2010, but she said it is a problem with this class. If it’s offered, I must take it.
I am apparently super-depressed. And I have a headache that just will not quit. I am in class right now and can hear the teacher talking but just can’t seem to absorb what she is saying. That’s kind of been how my whole semester has gone. I need to go get a stapler. If I can staple all of the research materials I’m pulling together for my paper, perhaps I can actually start writing it.
