It's a long story, but I just enrolled at the University of Phoenix for two online courses. The first begins at the end of March (deliberately scheduled after my first show of the season). Each course is three semester units and takes four weeks to complete. The average amount of time spent "attending" class and completing the required assignments is 15 - 20 hours per week.
The thing is that I also work full time. It takes 30 minutes to get to work, and since I go straight to the barn from work, that stretch of my drive adds another 50 minutes to my day. Combine that with the two hours I spend at the barn, and my waking hours are nearly filled.
Since my day is not quite packed in enough, I also get up at 4:30 three days a week to run on the treadmill. Something has to give. I already told my husband that our nightly home cooked meals will probably not be on the menu for the month of April. He wondered about my daily barn visits.
Um ... What's to wonder about?
What a silly question!
