so... now what??

Well, this was a week.

Finals week at school - the cause of much anxiety, I think I could smell it in the air.  I wasn't too worried, just looking forward to being finished.  I reminded myself that I'm a freaking tutor for cripe's sake, and actually took my own advice and did fine.

As we sat waiting for our math teacher to arrive for our exam, one kid in front of me was all a-fidget while taking sips of RedBull.  I wondered how many of those he'd had that day.

I've just got one class I'm still waiting on the final grade for.  I had a solid A going into the final project, which was no biggie, so unless the instructor thinks it's total crap, I should be good to go with that class too.




*ahem*  famous last words.

And now, after all that studying and testing... nothing!  Yay! 

Yesterday I helped Wolfgang move out of his dorm.  That translates to - I sat in the car while he and his roommates lugged things.  Chaco is checking out later today, but he's been bringing things home piecemeal all week, and last night took Ellie Mae with him, so I don't even need to sit in the car for his final move.  Hopefully, he doesn't have much left because I don't know if the house can hold much more!  

Think I can pull off a garage sale while they sleep??

So it was nice to enjoy Meego's birthday.  Everyone was here for dinner and cake, and I managed to find his gift in all the dorm clutter.  Meego's last two birthdays have been somewhat overshadowed with Chaco's and then Wolfgang's high school graduations, so it was nice to not have all that hoopla going on this year.

Then last night was the final band concert followed by a few tunes from the jazz band.  There be Meego, slappin' the bass.



Is it my imagination, or is he starting to resemble Rock Chef?

  1. Oh, I am so envious of you - You get to wind down! My time won't be here until June whatever day when Girl#1 graduates high school.
    Congrats on a successful first (sorta) year of college!!!
    Happy Belated to Meego! My youngest just turned 14, too.

    1. I have been totally basking in slothfulness, but (hopefully) it will get old soon!

  2. If I knew what Rock Chef looked like I'd give you an opinion!

    So will you get bored now the exams are over? Sounds like you did well!

    1. I look forward to finding something to beat the boredom - something other than laundry and stuff.

      FYI, Rock Chef has longish shaggy hair and is often seen holding a bass guitar.

  3. If he starts writing zombie stories, watch out...

    1. That would be freaky, especially if accompanied by painting little Vikings too.

  4. Couple more missed haircuts and Meego will certainly resemble RC. ;)
    Congrats on making it through your finals! Enjoy your newfound slothness, and best wishes adjusting to having the family back home. I doubt it'll take long!

    1. I think I've adjusted to having everyone back home. Having all their crap home is another story...

    Are you taking any summer courses?

    1. I considered taking one class, but now it looks like maybe just a MOOC or two.

  6. That bass is the only color in the band, and red, too! Perfect for when he unexpectedly unleashes his face-melter solo rip, the stage suddenly covered in undergarments......

  7. Congrats on a successful school year!

    I was just thinking how overwhelming it must be to have TWO kids moving stuff home from college. One is plenty for me!

    I'm happy to hear that Meego had a good birthday. I think you're right! He IS starting to look a bit like Rock Chef!

  8. He's definitely working that bass. He's going to have to work on the hair before he can attain RC's caliber. Just don't cut it for a year and that would be a start.
