Just a speed post here...nothing really

I know, I missed Tuesday Temptations....don't shoot me...I had my degree audit and when I got home, I really didn't feel much like posting. It is not all bad. I have been going to college under a special program for adults. I knew that as I read the fine print that there was a chance that some of the credits would not survive.

Long story short, I have lost only five classes. Unfortunately, two are directly related to my major. On the bright side, the counselor told me that in some instances she has seen people loose ten or more credits. She asked me to send her my resume, as my work experiences may be able to help me gain credits. I can't explain all of it and nor do I need to do so.

While I was driving home, I contemplated the discussion she and I had and in the silence of the drive, I remembered that nothing is placed in our path that we cannot handle. This is just a small test of my metal and I will be fine. I can handle the set back with grace. The current semester will be over on May 15th and together we will lay out the classes for summer school (both sessions) and then review and move forward. Will I be done in December of this year? I doubt it. Reality will be December of 2010 and I am fine with that.

I have some wonderful stuff that I want to "tease" you all with, but I will save it for later on in the week....for now I am off to finish the current repeat I'm on with the Clapotis and then on to bed by 9:00 PM so I can get to the YMCA early in the morning....after all, I have that goal of a two-piece bathing suit by May....

Good for you for taking this little bump in stride. I'm sure it's disappointing, but it seems to have only increased your determination, and that's a good thing. You will be that much more proud of yourself when you get 'er done.
