I know that I’ve been talking a lot about back-to-school lately and I promise to stop soon, but I had to share this with all of you.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that my husband was starting college this fall, after years of swearing that it was too much for him he finally gave in and decided that it was something that he just had to go ahead and do. I must admit, I am extremely proud of him, he works hard all day, comes home, goes to class and comes home and keeps his nose in the books until he goes to bed—he is definitely dedicated! With that said, he is also driving me insane!
Now for you to fully appreciate how crazy this man is making me I feel compelled to tell you that on top of running Misadventures, taking care of 4 kiddos, and my house I am also a full-time student carrying a full-load this semester…not easy stuff ladies and gents! I told my husband when he enrolled in college that I would help him as much as I could—if only I had kept my big mouth shut!
I’m not saying that Jamie takes advantage of the fact that I’m a Junior and have already had the classes that he is talking, but he does make sure to ask me to double check every single answer to every single question in every single class. Yesterday he was working on something for one of his writing classes when he yelled for me to come over, no problem I wasn’t that busy, I was only cooking dinner and giving my youngest kiddos a bath—at the same time! Anyway I walk over to his computer and he starts telling me about this file that he’s trying to open, knowing that he knows full well how to open a file I start to yell at him when I realize that the file is a PDF that he needs to convert to a Word file—alright no big deal. I begin telling Jamie that he needs to find a PDF converter so that he can convert the file and he looks at me and asks, “Well how much is that? I don’t want to have to buy one.” I calmly explain to him that all he has to do is search PDF Conversion on the internet and he can find one fairly cheap or even free. I notice that he still looks confused so I begin explaining the process for him at this point he decides that he would rather have me do the work for him so he makes up some lame excuse about having to take the garbage out and leaves the room. An hour later Jamie returns to the room where I am still at the computer looking over the assignments that he had completed earlier and he looks at me and says, “Babe I think I did the wrong assignment earlier, that PDF thing was supposed to be turned in yesterday.” Seriously babe?
This semester seriously cannot be over with quick enough!
