I said..."I DO!"

This past week I did something important and life changing. This is something that will require much of my time and money. Much of my free time will now be devoted to this.

I'm already married and I already have three kids so it can't be either of those things.

After I committed myself to this, I started to cry, hyperventilate and I wanted to throw up.

This is really starting to sound like my wedding day. But it isn't......

What I did do was sign my life away.

I am now officially a university student. I will spend the next few years taking courses to get the old sheep skin. I realize that it would be easier just to put everything on hold and attend classes full time, but I can't do that. As much as I would like to, my family won't let me set them aside while I pursue my higher education.

So how am I going for the brass ring while I have a DH, three kids, a full time job and all the chores that a family and a house produce? Correspondence courses.

Raise your hand if you think that I'm a masochist.

OKAY, can all put them down now.

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

You *know* I don't think you're a masochist! Yay for you!

Good for you, honey! You should be proud of yourself for going after your degree - it'll be twice as impressive because you DIDN'T give up everyone/thing else to get it, but managed to get it while still managing everything and everyone else. Awesome!

Good for you and good luck. Kristen,
my GD got her degree taking all the classes online and then going to a testing place for the tests she took.
You didn't say what your degree will be.
