The Last few weeks

I have spent the last few weeks cozied up with some books, studying for the bar exam. Today was the first day of the exam. I managed to survive, mostly sane, and now I have only one day left. If I'm lucky and I managed to come up with enough points to pass I won't have to do this again. Otherwise I will have to start studying again and take it over in February. Of course I won't find out until October. Talk about insult to injury.

Oh well - after tomorrow I can get back to sewing and knitting! I'll need fiber therapy by then.

July 1

My son has decided to sabotage my study plans. He brought home a playstation and a new game. I wasted at least three hours of good study time before I just shut it off in frustration.

At least I'll get 9 hours of study time on Thursday and Sunday. We are driving out to visit my parents. The deal was I'd go along - but he had to drive so I can study. With any luck I'll be able to get a few good hours in during the holiday weekend as well.
