The reason this is late- we moved. Again. And not to my MIL’s house as originally planned. We moved in my childhood home with my parents, sister and brother. In case you lost count (in Michelle Duggar’s voice) that’s 8 people. In a 4 bedroom house. But it’s working. Hubbs already has a job, I have a job with a home health agency, and I’m going back to school! In the past 4 years, we’ve come full circle back to where we started.
Speaking of school, I was SO pleasantly surprised that I am still registered at the college (was community, now a 4 year public) because they do lifetime membership; In 1998 I tested into college, and they still honor that (YAY! no TABE test) AND my English Composition I as well as my College Algebra classes still count. I’m most excited about my math requirement counting- in the 13 years I was in school, I made only one “B” EVER in math- and this course was it.
I’ve expanded my writing. I have a deadline coming up soon for a website I’m going to start writing for. Once I have my article up (or I’m cleared to say where I’m writing), I’ll post it. AND, my childhood parish that we will be attending has a self-published newspaper, which I signed up for when I “re-registered” this week. I’m excited for these endeavors!
I’m researching having a major in Nursing, a minor in sociology or social work. I know that’s a lot to bite off having a job, husband and kids, but if I’m aiming, I’d better aim big, right??!!
I haven’t given up derby. Jacksonville has a big league (WFTDA-sanctioned) with 4 teams… only one of which travels. So this should be do-able. And I’d make myself availale to my girls in ACR too… they gave me my start, and I didn’t want to leave them!
It’s interesting learning to cook so that my dad (a heart patient) can eat… it’ll help my husband (and me too, for that matter). It’s just hard to not default to pasta or something else cheap.
Using shifts at a computer isn’t fun. But it’s what we have to live with for right now. That said, I have to go.
