situations = solutions

Recently I went online to pay some bills and was smacked in the face by a harsh reality. I needed to do something fast. I immediately went online and applied for the RN program at the local college. I spoke with an admssions person who informed me that all the courses I took a kazillion years ago would transfer over, where applicable and I would be well on my way.

Of course this isn't going to be a fast solution but long term it will be an outstanding solution and nursing is something I wish I had done a long time ago. (actualy I would have loved to have been a surgeon but can you imagine the med school bills now? LOL). I  spoke to an advisor to see what exactly my next steps would be and basically my dream was shot down. I decided to give it one more shot and went and spoke to another advisor and I am now signed up for classes 5 days a week. So with a job, 2 kidlets and school don't expect much on this blog, oh that's right I barely blog now so you won't notice.

I am really giddy about this change, the kids are onboard 100% and we can't wait to sit down and all do homeowrk together. those are Rosies words.

The biggest change for them is with swimming. It wasn't their choice to give it up and I feel absolutely rotten about it but with the added expense of school and having to do it alone I have to cut out some extras. I also cannot be in 2 places at once and the professors probably won't want to teach from the pool deck. We have already discussed other options and I am hopeful something will prevail as they need to be busy.

I couldn't do this change at all if it wasn't for an extremely supportive family and Sista. I cannot imagine how people get through life without a family on their side. Thank you to every single one of you that has my back. I promise to get this done as quickly as humanly possible.

So there you have it, the scoop. Now I need to post from the cruise and the restof summer.
