It Never Goes According to Plan..And That Is Good!

You know that I have started an online MBA program.  I finished my first course, which is a required course for all students of that university.  Basically it is a "How-To" course:  How to enroll is each class, how to find books and other sources online, how to contact people when you need help, how to submit assignments.  It was fairly straight-forward.

After completing that class I had to get enrolled.  It's not difficult, but it is the first step in getting my online access to about 400,000 things.

I thought that perhaps I would be able to spend some time doing school work during these days away from work and home.  But, alas, it has not worked out that way.  I'm still waiting for all those access things to be done.

That's a bit of a disappointment.


I have had the chance to do some visiting and some cleaning and some driving and some Christmas-gift designing and some TV-watching and some more visiting.  And I found the frozen yogurt shop, which is very important.

This has been a little vacation with a big slice of peace of mind.  Tomorrow I will get on an airplane and head back to "Life As We Know It."  The school plan will kick in; the Christmas shopping and gift-assembling will need to be done; the emails will have to be answered; the RS lesson will have to be taught.  For now I'm basking in the fact that life did not go the way it was planned.
