certifiably insane!

I've had a bit of a secret over the last couple months.
I've been applying to law school!
And Wednesday we found out I'm in!!

It's going to be crazy!! My first semester will be Ryan's last, so we can say hi and pass notes at school. Cute. But juggling the house work will be difficult. Seriously, every Monday I do laundry and go grocery shopping and that takes me just about all day. Then I try to clean house on Tuesday. What am I going to do without those days? I'd like a cleaning service, but that costs moola. Poopy. Then there's also the kids. Hopefully I can get my classes so that they're all during the day and I'll still be able to drop Gwen off at school, and be done in time to pick her up. Also I'm crossing my fingers I'll be able to get Drake into the preschool on ASU's campus so I could bring him with me. Wow. There's a lot! But I can do it!!! I think

You are a freakin' Rockstar....but then I have known that for a while now:) You are way more ambitious than me....I will still be doing laundry and doing housework while you turn into Erin Brokavich!

Denise said...

That is so exciting!!! Of course you can do it. Just lower your standard of what clean it, and what food should look/taste like, and you will be fine. Just don't forget to blog about how well you are balancing your busy life. I look at your blog like I look at NieNie's, because you are always so positive and rockstar.

holy cow!! congrats!! You're amazing!

Kristin said...

Thank you everybody!!! I'm terrified, but your encouragement helps!

Karen said...

Congrats Kristin!! On the laundry/housework thing... I just discovered flylady.net. Maybe you've already heard of it but her philosophy is to do a little bit each day, focusing on a different task each day and a different zone each week. And one load of laundry each day. I'm not extremely familiar since I just found it but it might help you juggle everything?? I'm sure you'll do great like you do at everything else!!
