Incompetence Annoys Me...

I cleaned my house today for the first time since I told my cleaning lady that I wouldn't need her for the summer since I'm not teaching. OMG...there were things that I don't think have been dusted in months...maybe years! No wonder my allergies have been sky-high lately, the dust was unbelievable!

Definitely won't be calling her back for the next semester, I will figure out how to clean it myself or find someone else. Unbelievable that someone would charge so much for such a shitty job.

Exam Update...

I got good news, and not so good news:

I passed 3 out of 4 questions

I will retake the 4th question in September

This is both the good news and the not so good news as I have all summer to prepare for one question (good news); I passed three questions on the first try (good news); I didn't pass all 4 questions on the first try (bad news) but, I have a second shot and better direction at that 4th question...gonna kick butt and take names come September!!

Patience? I don't have no stinkin' patience!!

So, my exams ended on Saturday around 4:30. Now comes the waiting for the results. Originally, they told us we would know on Friday...only 3 days away, but then they realized it was a holiday weekend. Now we don't find out until Tuesday afternoon if we passed the exams or not.

Patience? What's that?!? I cannot believe that we have to wait over a holiday weekend for our results...I'm dying here! Trying to keep my mind off of it, but it's tough!
