Hi again.

I'm a terrible, terrible blogger. I know this, but school is swamping me :/

I found a way to make my life a little bit easier...
The planner is a must. I'd be lost without it, but I decided to take it a step further... color coding! 
Blue is quizzes. Orange is assignments due. And pink is tests. (Yes, I put a key in the corner for myself lol).
Anything not color coded is something not having to due with school, like doctor's appointments, PAT meetings, and such. And then there are things not even listed because we do them every week (like Grace's ballet). 
This is seriously the only thing keeping me sane right now. I kept looking at my planner and getting overwhelmed with all the different things (especially because the other months have MORE). 

Oh, and did I mention I totaled my Cavalier (NOT the suv)? Yep. Driver of the year moment right there.   Air bags smashed me in the face, but I wasn't hurt. I wish I could say it was some awesome quadruple roll-over crash and I walked away, but no. I ran into the back of a car in front of me. We were merging and she started to go (I thought she went), and I was looking back to see if anyone was coming. There was NO ONE coming, but for whatever reason, she didn't go, and I ran right into her :( I know it was my fault for not paying better attention, but I still can't figure out what possessed her to stop. 
I was on my way home from school, so the kids weren't with me.
I was literally going under 10 mph and the air bags deployed. 

It was sticking out, but I pushed it in some. And yes, it was the air bag that shattered my windshield.
There's nothing else wrong with my car, but having just ONE air bag replaced would cost more than my car's worth, so we're going to get rid of it. We're back to one vehicle :/ Oh well, nothing we can do about it now.
Oh, and the other driver and passengers were fine. It messed up her bumper a bit, which my insurance will be paying for.

I promise to continue to try to post as much as possible. I just can't find much time to do that right now between all the studying and assignments and such.

I did order something today that I am very excited about. I'll definitely do a post about it when it arrives. And, my birthday is a week from today, so I'm sure I'll something to post about then as well :) 


  1. I love agenda's and planners, and I'm not even in school. Lol. They make life so much easier!!

    Geez, glad your wreck wasn't serious!!

    And hey, my birthday is a week from today too. I'm so excited to share my birthday with the Super Bowl.. That was very much covered with sarcasm, by the way.

    1. Oh boy. I don't follow football. I didn't even realize that was Superbowl Sunday. Fun :/

  2. You are a terrible blogger! I never get comments on my stuff anymore. :( lol

    Ah. I agree with Megan. I am not in school but I would not be able to keep my sanity without my planner. Just too much to do. I even write the weekly stuff to keep it all organized and in one place.

    Now that I see the pictures...I would continue to drive it, just to have a second car.

    1. I'm sorry! I will try to comment more. I promise :)

      I think I would go insane if I had my weekly stuff written down too lol. It would just be too much to look at. I need a planner with more space for each day as it is lol.

      I don't think my insurance will cover the car any more since the safety systems have all been triggered. And the dash and steering wheel are ripped open where the air bags deployed.

  3. Glad to hear yo are alright!!
    I a terrible blogger also. But man does nursing school have me swamped. It is nothing but back to back quizes and exams. If I'm not in class I'm studying. It's horrible. I don't have much time for anything else. We took the babies to the zoo this pass weekend and all I could think aout was oh my gosh I have a quiz Monday and a test on Tuesday plus a quiz and practical on Wednesday and lab stuff due Thursday. My head is spinning right now thinking about it all.

    1. I bet! I hate having so much work/studying to do all the time, but I suppose it has to be done :/
