Not this time (well, working PT, but just 10 hours a week), but with DS I was in grad school. During the last two quarters/trimesters (funny how the schedule coincided ;-), I had an evening class two days a week. I couldn't get through without a venti mocha something-or-other, and DS would just daaaaaance right through Labor Relations and Growth, Science, and Technology. Maybe someday he'll find discussions about unions or patents unnaturally exciting. ;-)

Oh, and I didn't earn any units my first quarter/trimester. I dropped two classes and took an incomplete in the third. Had to take 4 classes the next two terms to get it all done! But still had 5 incompletes and a rewrite for my capstone project undone at the end... took a year to finish all that up.

I work full-time. I do have a part-time job too but that is not consistant and I only fill in for others now and then....so maybe work 2 times a month. By 2:30 most afternoons I wonder how I am going to survive the next 2 hours without a nap.

I work 26-32 hrs a week and I am going to school. I am just taking 3 s.h right now but I will slowly increase my school load next term and then the next until I am at 9 s.h. I wish I could give you some energy but I don't even have enough for me to work, do school and clean my house!

How about working IN a school? I was going to take a class this semester, but found out I was preggo just before I signed up. I decided against taking a class.

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.

I am working 40 hours a week with a 30-45 minute commute each way... it is so not fun!! It doesn't help that I loathe and despise my job...

I'm taking 2 classes and teaching 2 classes. It's hard with morning sickness and a wild 2-year-old.

I think we have enough of us to form our own tribe in here... We can all whine together! I was originally signed on to take 6 classes, but I rethought that, and dropped 2. Still full-time though. Hoping to still some how, some way, graduate next summer.

Lol, I was supposed to finish up my MA at the end of April. Now, who knows when I'll finish? I took a year off when my son was born because I couldn't stand to leave him. At the rate I'm going, it will take me 4-5 years to complete this 2-year program.

When I was pregnant with my first, I worked full-time and went to school full-time at nights. What I found helpful was to take an hour lunch or leave an half an hour earlier from work and I would nap. I would get to my classes and have 10 minutes to nap. I napped when ever I could no matter how long or short.

I hope this helps.

Great advice! Yesterday and today I started napping during my lunch break. I have my own office so I can close the door and lay my head down on my desk. Just the 15-20 minute power nap does me wonders to get through the afternoon and home to cook dinner.
