Another Semester .... Just Chugging Along

My newest reason to laugh..
Chugging right along, my schedule is perhaps the most full it has been since this adventure has started. Between school, work, kids and family my plate is very full.  I am constantly amazed by just how much I have managed to accomplish so far. For the second time I am taking a class with my daughter, which helps because we can bounce our Biology Labs off of each other when we get stuck. Since this semester started I have not made it to bed before 1:30 am or 2:00 am. So each morning when I get up to begin my day the coffee pot is always ready to go even though it may take me a little bit longer to get started.

This has been a great challenge so far, I have found many of the classes that were at first intimidating to be a real joy to take. I do recommend taking a few classes to anyone who may be unsure of where they want to go in their life. It is a great way to find what makes you tick. This year has been far more than just school though, my commitments have grown stronger to the people in my life. It also amazes me that as tired as I may get I am still able to laugh and find the joy in the everyday moments.

We are by no means perfect as a family but we are sticking together and really supporting each other. At the end of the day that is what matters, it is not about how big your family is or even those people who get  that you may be to dog tired to pick up the phone and call. Its the spouse that never seems to grumble even though you come to bed later rather than earlier. Still managing to crack jokes about your computer being your lover.


Every day I am finding myself more and more, the funny part is I thought I knew myself pretty well already. It is as much about learning who you are as about the degree or even potential money you can make with that degree. Either way I know before I was the one who was not ready.Whereas now I can embrace it for the gift that it is. Some days are hard and I want to whine but I don't because this is my choice. My decision to move forward in regards to my own dreams. My Thomas and my kids at home are always my number one supporters that keep me going.

I can only love them more and more for their unselfishness in allowing me my dreams as well. I am truly blessed in my life. It may not be perfect but it is my life and I am glad for the wonderful people I get to share it with. Both friends and family.

To my friends who hang in there even when I seem to go underground and disappear off the face of the earth for a while your patience and understanding helps to keep me going. I would be lost without you.

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
