I'm supposed to go back to school again starting in January. I'm trying to becoem a respiratory therapist--get out from behind the desk and get into patient care! But I'm really starting to worry about it. I'm not worried about the money for it, as it's practically paid for already, but I'm worried about the time element. My husband rarely gets home before 8pm and my daughters have activities that they need to be shuttled to and that I try to attend. I'm afraid that either I will miss a lot, or they'll have to give up some of them. Really makes me sad. But not many ways to improve our financial situation without enhancing my education. So I really feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. I need to figure it out soon because deadlines are looming.
I took chicken breasts out of the freezer this morning, but don't have a clue what I want to do with them for dinner. I need to start using more crock pot recipes so dinner is ready when we get home.
Shoeluvva.......an education will be a temporary inconvenience to a long-term solution. You will actually be teaching your kids an invaluable lesson....and life lessons are more valuable than activities. You are making a move to better yourself and get a job with more security and more money than the one you currently have. Kids don't want things or activities.....they want you. When you get your respiratory therapy job, you will have more $ to provide better opportunities for them down the road, and most likely more time to spend with them as you will have to work fewer hours for more money. I have faith in you that you can do it.....you go girl!!!
