over the moon

so my grandmother told me last week that she'd help me with nola so i can go to school. i'll be paying her (because i HATE taking things for free. HATE.) but it will be less than a normal daycare or nanny because she wants to help me out! win win.

so i went to the community college here today and talked to them about what i needed to do to get started.

i'm beyond excited.

its perfect timing because i have enough time to start working and get used to that before i'm in school also, time to save up some money to use for daycare ahead of time and time to figure out what classes i want etc.

i can't really explain the feelings of freedom, excitement, and oppurtunity that i feel. its so incredible to feel like i am finally working towards something i want. something that has nothing to do with my husband or children. not that i dont like them, because i do very much, its just that life has revolved around them or been ruled by them for the past 4 years. we need balance.

i'm so excited to be my own person, have my own life that doesn't involve any of them and then be able to come home and appreciate them just that much more because of that freedom.

i could seriously jump up and down screaming i'm so excited... now i just have to hold onto that excitement for the next 4 months. i will.

look out night job... here i come.

i'm so so so happy for you. i feel like when i was sitting in class the first time i was transported to another era before husband and kids. it was me again and it was incredible.
