So I'm heading into my third week of NS. COPIOUS
amounts of reading, assignments, and studying...... I told my guy during the first week, "I will be studying all the time
, but Sundays and Mondays are set aside for NOTHING
but studying", because my instructors like to post things on Blackboard that I need to review before classes on Tuesday.
So, for two weeks now, he has invited his kids (grown) over for dinner on one of my study nights. This weekend, TWO of my study nights (both last night where we watched his grandson for five hours, and tonight when they will all be here for dinner) So I have to clean the house, go to the grocery store, and even though he does the cooking, I do the after dinner clean up. THIS AIN'T WORKIN' OUT!
Not only that (as if that isn't enough), I could have all my books spread all around me, obviously knee deep in studying, and he involves me in conversations about politics and of all things, GOLF!
Which I care nothing about! (Politics I do care about, not golf). If I was listening to someone else say this, I would be like,
"Honey, your man is sabotaging you." But he wants this for me as bad as I do! He is proud of me, encouraging....... I am at my wits end and I am only three weeks in! I'm so stressed not from school as much as from making him understand how huge this is and how much I need some cooperation here. My first two tests are next week, and I finally had to just say "NO COMPANY next weekend." I have the study room with a desk, I just hate to sequester myself away like that, but I'm telling you, if everyone is still here tonight til nine p.m., my butt will be in the study with the door shut, rude or not!!!! FRUSTRATED!!!!! ... end rant.
