Morning all! I'm up late as usual, and thought I'd go ahead and kick this one off for once. :chuckle
QOD: What is the single most fulfilling thing in your life at this time?
For me, it is seeing my son grow and develop so much. He is so smart, and the things that he says and does continue to amaze me each day. He is such a loving little boy, and he is continually getting praised for his good behavior at school! :hatparty: HIs teachers comment on his good manners, his good behavior, and say he is such a joy to work with and to teach. They say he makes their job easier, that he always leads the class, and that he is just so sweet. I couldn't be happier. Of course here at home, he is NO WHERE near the :angel2: that he is at school!!!
But he's my heart, and my pride and joy. I can't imagine my life without him.
Now, I'll fill y'all in on what I've been doing. I've been working, working, working for the past few days. I hardly get a moment to myself when I work like that....6 shifts in a row. WHEW!
Friday I was off, I went to the university here to try to sort out some things about my schedule. ALL of my info was screwed up, and I walked from one end of the campus to the other non-stop, it seemed. *sigh* Finally, I talked to someone who decided that he could help me, and I got signed up for an orientation. The problem is, it's on July 6 @ 11am. I have to work night shift (12 hrs) on the 5, 6, and 7, and I want to sign up for summer session II, and after the 5th it is a late registration, with late fees and all. Oh, and also, the financial aid dept. did not bother to process fin. aid for me for the summer, only next fall and spring. :angryfire: Hopefully they will get my award together sometime soon.
Now going back to school is posing a couple of big dilemmas for me. One, I don't know how in the world I am going to manage to work at least 36 hrs. a week on nights while going to school during the day. I NEED my sleep, always have. WIth less than 7 hours, I am a BEAR!!! Second, I really feel like I don't want to persue my BSN, and I had seriously thought about med school, but now I don't feel like putting the time into it. So I'm thinking about doing the PA program. I can finish it up in 3 years, same amount of time I'll need to get my BSN. ALso, I hate living here, and I'm not exactly sure that I even want to stay here long enough to complete a degree. WHO KNOWS??? I am just having a lot of issues right now.
Kate, I can totally relate to how you are feeling about school. It's such a huge ordeal!!
Today we are planning on going to the waterpark and the beach, to try to relax a bit. We'll see how that works out.
Y'all have a great day!!!

*grumbling with eyes half shut* morning. Man, am I tired! Am I ever going to get caught up on sleep? Bryce must be having another growth spurt. It seems like every couple of weeks, he is up one or two times a night eating, eating, eating. I'm tired. I even lay down with the kids in the afternoon when they nap and it isn't doing me any good. The only thing it seems to help me do is stay up later at night and then I'm not getting sleep either!
I gotta get some coffee...................
Okay, now at least I have the aroma wafting up to my nostrils while it cools a bit.
The bunnies are in the kitchen going bananas this morning. Almost time to let them out of their cage to run. Yesterday, they were running across the floor and sliding. It was hilarious!
I have made an official pact with myself and you all have permission to kick my butt if I break the pact. I am staying away from all things political here. I may read them (though it is better if I don't so I don't get goaded into answering) but I may not answer! This, I solemly swear!
(how long will this last now?)
it sounds like you are in a state of confusion with deciding just what it is you are going to do and you also sound like you are in the middle of weighing the pros and cons of each situation. That's a great way to do it. I have to do that with just about everything anymore and I bring many problems here to this thread to get everyone's two cents.
Try to relax a little today when you go to the waterpark. (how I envy you.....it's too cold here to do ANYTHING outside!)
QOD answer: My kids are the single most fulfilling thing in my life at this time. I know that will change and it will probably sound horrible but I know once school starts that my self-worth will rise and I will feel better about me. School and how I do there will quickly become very fulfilling, maybe surpassing the kids at that time.
Today's plan is to get the living room cleaned, try to get the kids outside for awhile to run off energy, work on my class's group some more and start going through paperwork and bills to get this office cleaned on Tuesday. (the deadline I gave Bry to get the pile on his desk cleaned off)
Bryce was using Piper's potty chair to stand up again yesterday and fell and cut his chin and his lower gums. I couldn't see where the blood was coming from so Bry rushed home to check him out. That way, one of us could hold him and the other check. *sigh* I swear I am going to have a heart attack one of these days. It's every other day that someone is hurting themselves around here! My heart cannot take it!
Alright.....gonna run and get started. Dang, I want some more sleep!
Hugs all around........
