Also, for those following our life story via this blog, I did get that coveted interview to the nursing school that I would love to attend. My chances of getting in are now very high. It's an exciting time, but also a little hard to decide in terms of what's best for us. My kids will all be in school if/when I start. They would go to after-school care four days a week. Any job I've ever had has been around their schedules, so I've always had the "stay-at-home-mom" status (which was my choice), working with clients in the evenings or on weekends (which was better for their schedules anyway, so win-win). They go to an awesome school and actually want to go to after-school care, so I know they'll be okay. Zach will be at a point in his education where he can step up and do some of the house stuff I'm typically in charge of. It's just a huge adjustment for me! If I get the opportunity to go to this nursing school, I don't think it's an opportunity that I should pass up- I think it would be unwise to pass it up. It's expensive and will add to our education debt. BUT. I still think it's worth all the cost (financial and with the loss of family time). I do think, if I get the chance, I should go. It will be a hard year, but I'm sure it will be filled with blessings too. So, if you pray, I'd appreciate prayers for guidance over these next few weeks. I interview in 3 weeks. If I get a spot, I'd also appreciate your prayers for a scholarship and grants and enough federal loan aid. That's the only way I'll be able to go.
THANKS! off to study for my first Physiology exam of the semester... Monday at 8am. Ouch!
