Just ROLL with it!

Hey there dolls! πŸ™‚ Hope you’re having a great weekend!!

First of all I apologize for slacking on this week’s postings. I feel awful, but I have a pretty good excuse for it, (or at least I think so and hope that you would too)

I apparently had total PREGNANCY BRAIN in which I got the due dates of two my classes confused. :-O I’m taking three graduate classes this semester and somehow I got the due dates of one of them mixed up with the due dates of another. I was somehow under the impression that two classes required assignments to be due every TWO weeks and the other EVERY week. So on Monday I was starting my day off like any other morning when for some reason I went to look at the course schedule only to see that my dates we ALL MESSED UP! I FREAKED OUT ( I know shouldn’t stress for baby’s sake but I was just couldn’t believe why the dates were all wrong, until it hit me that I WAS THE ONE WHO WAS WRONG) So I imediately called my professor, hoping that he’d answer his phone so that I didn’t have to explain things via email. {Side note: I’m ALL about technology like email and text, but sometimes you just HAVE TO talk to people in person or over the phone to efficiently get the message across} Thankfully he answered and I explained my misunderstanding of the due dates, how deeply sorry I was and I promised that I was not slacking, but I had just simply overlooked the deadlines of each assignment. I was literally 2 assignments BEHIND not to meantion that I had another assignment due this week as well. Oh and there were also those other two classess that I’m taking, those too! 😦 I couldn’t believe how I could have made such a major mistake like that and overlooked something so important. Thankfully, my professor said it wasn’t a problem that I just needed to complete all the assignments before I would be allowed to take the midterm. He also said that since they were “late,” he would have to take points off, but that he didn’t think it would effect my grade too much because I seemed to grasped the concepts of each previous assignment well. I was Β SOOO *thankful* for his sincerity and relieved that he understood the situation. I wanted to blame it on pregnancy hormones…lol but I didn’t think that was necessary, plus I’m not blaming baby for anything when I’m the one who clearly messed up. Afterwards, I sat at my desk looking over the material that I needed to cover and complete (3 projects total, which usually amounts to a week’s worth of work for each. 😦 *tear*) I began weeping like a baby….1. I couldn’t believe how I had let this happen. 2. I didn’t know how I was going to finish all of this work in just a few days. ( I did have two weeks until the midterm, but I couldn’t procrastinate any longer and was determined to finish all of it by this week’s deadline) 3. I was going to have points deducted from my grade….this one hurt me the MOST. I take so much pride in my assignments and the work I put into them and the thought of getting less than what I’m capable of it just awful. I had gotten 100% on each of the other two assignments that I had submitted, so I was pretty frustrated that the following assignments wouldn’t recieve such a high grade. :-/

So I pretty much spent my entire week playing CATCH UP! If there is anything I’ve learned from this fiasco it is this:

1. Things happen that totally rock your boat and you just gotta roll with punches and overcome it.

2. Mistakes happen and the point is to *live & learn* from them.

3. I’m a SOOO much more stronger, brighter, and more efficient than I ever though I could be.

4. With *DETERMINATION* anything is possible.

I think such events happen in our lives to teach us a lesson and to remind us how capable we are.

So intead of reading all the lovely blogs I love to follow and post about my weekly adventures, I was stuck being a total book worm all week. :-/ But I’m not complaining, I’ve caught up with all of my assignments and I feel GREAT! πŸ™‚

As a reward for all of my hard work, hubby took me to see The Help on Thursday. I finished reading it on Monday and I was very anxious to watch the movie finally. I was beyond pleased with the book and equally satisifed with movie. Hubby liked it too πŸ˜‰ which always makes he happy.

Another thing that I discovered makes me happy….

PICKLES!!!! πŸ˜€

There is a funny story behind it, but I’ll share it with ya later…maybe on the next baby post or something. πŸ˜‰ Needless to say, I definitely had a pickle run this week to satisfy my pregnancy cravings!!

Another thing that makes me *HAPPY* is….TEXAS<3!!

We will hopefully be visiting the *family* soon! I cannot wait πŸ˜€ I miss my parents, my siblings and my sweet sweet furbabies so so much! Everyday I tell hubby, “We’re one day closer to seeing Miss Lexie!” πŸ˜€ or “I can’t wait to cuddle with Mr. Grouchy Pants!” πŸ˜› He’s a cutie but his name could have easily been “Oscar.” But I still LOVE him to pieces. We’re going to bring home the little furry monsters, (YAY!!) and have our gender party to announce baby’s gender. (double YAY!!!) I’m sooo excited and CANNOT WAIT!

This weekend we’ve got lots going on with friends, today is the BIG GAME for TEXAS…they play top-ranked OU in the Red River Rivalry! We are pumped and super excited! I have a feeling Texas is gonna be the underdog who pulls out with a W this week. πŸ™‚ I swear baby is already throwing the *HOOK EM* sign up in my belly…Can’t wait to get him or her cute little Texas gear. πŸ˜€

Tomorrow we’re meeting our other friends (My *BESTIE*) and their precious little girl at the state fair! πŸ˜€ We’ve made it a tradition, the last time we went SHE was preggers and it was so adorable seeing her indulge all on the state fair goodies and NOW I’m the preggers girl! Since we don’t live as close as we used to, I greatly enjoy these get togethers to the fullest because she is truly a wonderful friend.

Do you like to go to state fairs?? I love all the craft booths and goodies that they make and sell. My friend loves ALL the crazy fried stuff they have. I dunno about fried oreos, but I’ll take a corn dog just because it’s the freakin’ STATE FAIR!! πŸ˜‰ hehe

Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend!! (Sorry if I bored you with my lack of posting explanation..lol)
