It's Probably Time for a Real Post

I haven't actually written anything for a while. Things have been a little crazy lately.

Speaking of being busy, for some reason it's something my mother doesn't understand. I've been swamped lately with school, work, wedding, and everything else. Keeping the house clean is a neverending chore. I've had test after test after presentation after field observation lately at school. Work is crazy busy because of seminar season. Wedding stuff is getting to the point where it needs to be done, and it's not hard stuff, just time consuming. And every time my mom calls I'm right in the middle of something. I'm not the most polite person when I get interrupted from something I'm focusing on, especially if it's a phone call. I really don't like to talk on the phone, and my mother does. So I usually am short with her on the phone, which I feel bad about, and I do apologize to her for, but I can't stand it when she constantly asks me if I'm mad at her. I don't have a reason to be mad at her, and I tell her all the time I'm not mad at her, she just won't stop. Well last night she came over to see the dining room (I painted again, I'm not sure if I posted that or not) and I was in the middle of cramming for the PPST (pre-teaching classes exam) that I took today. I was so frustrated because I wasn't getting any of the answers right on the practice exams and I felt really behind. Well I was a terrible host and barely talked to her and I was short with her, but I really needed her to go so I could study. I know it was rude, but I was stressed out and anxious. Well right before she left she asked if I was mad at her, and I yelled at her. I feel bad that I did, and I apologized to her twice, and talked to her today, but it is so annoying to me when she constantly takes it personally and she knows how much I have going on. It's like my parents forgot how busy I am when I moved out, like we never used to live together. I know I'm being way too hard on them, and I'm trying not to be. I need to go over and spend some time with them...just as soon as I get time that is.

On a better note, I took the PPST this morning. I passed the reading and math sections (which is great) and the writing section results get mailed to me. I really am praying about that writing section. We'll see.

This Saturday we're having our bible study group over for game night. I'm excited about it, but I have no idea how many people are coming! I hope it's not too many. I'm planning on making two pizzas, and Josh said Nick is bringing homemade ice cream. Depending on time, I might make some other stuff. I think it will be fun though. I love having people over.
