School is time consuming

So I've been going to school full time for about the last three weeks. It seems like I spend all my time either doing homework or chores and I always seem to have more homework. This is the first time I've gone to school full time since graduating almost 20 years ago, so I'm not in the habit of keeping track of more than one class, and I have three. To make things more fun one class has weeks that run Wednesday to Tuesday, another runs Thursday to Wednesday (with the quiz for the previous week's material available Thursday through Sunday) and my last class runs a normal Monday to Friday. Because of this, once I get everything done in one class, another one starts a new week and it seems like I'm never caught up.

Now if I could just get my kids to realize this and understand when I need to be left alone to do my homework. But maybe, just maybe they'll see me doing mine and think that maybe they should put theirs first too. Ha....who am I kidding, of course they won't.

At least I'm doing OK in the classes I can see scores for so far. But then seeing as how two of the classes are basic intro to computer type classes, if I don't get A's in both of them I'm going to kick myself. The only real challenge is each one has a research paper, on one I have to pick from a list and on the other I have to compare two operating systems. And in both I have to find sources. That will be fun. And of course I have no idea which two operating systems to choose, since I can choose any two, not just one of the big ones that everyone knows. Anyone got any suggestions?
