So I've got 9 pages of notes thus far from my readings for the Ethics final paper, which has a limit of 6-10 pages. I'm not done reading for it yet - that means maybe another three or four pages of notes to be written. The good thing is that once I get through the note-taking phase, I can turn this porcine verbiage into a silk purse, or at least a pleather purse, within the length limit fairly quickly.

It's just that tomorrow I have Fat Club first thing in the morning, icon writing at noon until 2 or 2:30, Saint Middle School contemporary service 41 miles away with set-up starting at 4, then taking PH out for his birthday dinner at 8:30. That pretty much kills Saturday.

Sunday I've got Saint Middle School all morning, leaving the house at 7:15 and getting home probably around 3 pm. If I have four cups of coffee, I probably will be able to put in another 3-4 hours of work afterwards. Next week is a bear. I still haven't finished the Trinity Sunday sermon for Homiletics on Friday. Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Oh, and I've got to develop the revised version of the honors thesis proposal so I can get it approved by my advisor and the Dean and register for next fall's courses by Wednesday night.

And then, of course, I need to study for exams. One more week of classes, then reading days and exams, and of course candidacy interviews.

I can do this....can't I?

Yes you can, yes we can... Middler year shall not defeat us!

Hang in there, and thank you for the kind words!

Oh, you most certainly can. And beautifully.

Hang in there.
