Well after almost five weeks of being into the semester I think I am finally starting to get the hang of juggling school and taking care of my kids and house. The ability to take a course online has been like heaven on earth for me! I get to keep my kids during the summer, which is awesome (at least when they are not nagging at me), and I have the convenience of working on my classwork when its their nap time.
Just now I took my Medical Terminology test while my kids were watching a movie and resting, and I so got a 96% on that test! I like the ability to take the test whenever I want to during the day and I don't have to worry about window times, because having kids makes your life unpredictable. I also like not having a specific time to get the test completed and the option to save the test and resume it later. Just today when I was taking my Medical Terminology exam I had to stop, get my children some juice and a snack that they were bugging me about, and I had to freedom to do such! That was so nice!
For my Anthropology exam I was able to take it in the evening after my kids were in bed and my husband was home to keep an ear out for them just in case. Although this test did have an hour setting and there was a specific window for the test, it still worked out okay.
But I think I am getting the hang of things, on my first medical exam I received a 100%, and my Anthropology exam I received a 94%, my mythology test was a bit harder and received a 76%. But I think considering what is required of me (physical therapy, recovery from my surgery, kids 24/7, and maintaining a household), I think I am doing pretty darn good!
So to all those moms out there, online classes are heaven! I always say that one of the perks of being a mom is that you have a natural gift of multi-tasking.
