Overheard at Table 3: Masters

L: Almost done with my Masters and really it doesn't feel like I've really mastered anything except how to spend time away from the kids.

J: And that's a problem how?

L: Cut it out.  I feel like I'm missing out on their lives.  The other day Kaylie wanted me to take her to her 5k but her dad had to take her - again! - because I had to get online for a test and guess what, the site was down?

J: Cool.  So you could take her.

L: No, because they were already halfway across town!   So I just stayed there and cleaned house and kept checking back on the site every 15 minutes like some junkie.   whensthesiteup?  whensthesiteup?  Because I just knew if it came back up in the afternoon, THEN I'd have to miss our movie marathon Saturday night.

J: Cleaning . . . ugh.  Sounds like a frikkin' nightmare.
