Busy as a Bee

I haven't posted in forever!  I feel like I've been neglecting my blog.
Never again will I register late for school!  There has been a hold on my account since last semester because my father still does my taxes for me.   I know it's sad but since they still list me as an independent so that I get good health benefits and help from the government it's better than way.  Anyway, my dad listed that I made $46,000 dollars on my FAFSA.  I work at Panera, I make close to minimum wage.  I made a total of around $7,000 last year!  So, unfortunately, I did not get all of the financial aid I was anticipating.  Thankfully, I have an extremely generous Grandfather who thinks that a college education is extremely important and he helped me out!
Anyway, I didn't think missing a single week of school would be detrimental.  It was the first week, I figured it'd just be a bunch of introductory stuff and syllabuses being handled out.  I was WRONG.  I have been so busy this past week just catching up on random crap.  I've had to read over 160 pages in a single book (in a single night), read 5 chapters in my calculus book and take the corresponding homework quizzes, study for a quiz that was already given in the first week, take another quiz in the same class for week 2, write a paper, and read all of this drama.  Now this may not sound like much but it is time consuming when you have to be in school all day, take care of a baby, work, and then do homework!  Also, I have never taken drama in my life.  It is a lot harder to understand than regular literature.  It's really not my cup of tea but I figured I'd give it a try.

So now I'm going to try and blog a little more.  By a little more, I mean once or twice a week.  I know I'll be doing a giveaway soon!  I have another baltic amber teething necklace to give away but I figured it'd be better to wait instead of having two teething necklace givaways in a row!  The next giveaway should be for wool dryer balls.  Let me know which one you guys want first!

I really don't understand how you juggle all of that! I'm taking 3 classes and stay at home with a 2 yr old and 6 m old and I have to say, I am overwhelmed! Anyways good luck to you and I would prefer the necklace giveaway first! :)
