I have a lot of thinking to do, and some decisions to make. The meeting with the School last night went well. I don't think it is doable right now though. The funny thing is, it isn't the financial part that is holding me back. No, they were able to come up with a very comfortable financial aid plan for me. The part I'm not sure about is that it is a ten month accelerated course, and I would have to attend school from 6:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m. Monday -Thursday! If you read this blog, you know that I go to bed no later than 9:30 every night. If I don't get to bed by then, I am literally falling asleep on the couch. There is no way I could go to school until 10:30 every night. I am already supposed to be getting more sleep than I am because of the Kidney disease. I have to work full time too, and when you add in time for studying, I don't think there are enough hours in the day or even in the week. I know I could take classes at my local comunity college, but the classes are so long, and I would only be able to take a couple every semester. It took me four and a half years to get my last two year degree! So I am kind of overwhelmed right now. I have two job interviews next week and I pray something comes of them. I don't have to make a decision regarding school right now. But soon, because most of the schools around here will be starting up in late August. Decisions, decisions.

just wanted to pop in and say hi. I hadn't looked at your blog all summer. I'm so sorry you're going through so much with the loss of your job and the loss of your sweet tessie. I hope things turn around soon, even tho I know you'll miss tessie forever and ever.

hugs to you,

Oh, God--I can't imagine those hours. A full-time job and school and everything it brings? If you do decide, I wish you good luck. If not, I completely see why you wouldn't :)

BTW, you're tagged!

I used to think that I would go back to school and finish my Ph.d once all my children were in school... clearly that is a pipe dream.

Like you, I am asleep early and seriously, I have the attention span of a gnat... unless I can write my thesis in blog format, I'm done.

What about Concordia or one of the schools that let you do everything on-line?

BTW - let's do another blogger get together soon.
