I promise…he really does love riding his dinosaur. He was laughing and giggling and swinging his legs…right up until the time I got the camera. Little stinker!
Today was a pretty important day. I ventured over to the (semi) local community college to sit through an orientation and to register for my classes for next semester. Nursing school is finally going to happen! I realized today that I have basically been taking pre-requisites (or on a waiting list) since September of 2008. That’s a long time!
My schedule is pretty nice. I’ll drive to Wausau on Mondays and Thursdays for class or clinicals. I should be home in time to get the kids after school. On Tuesdays, I will go to the school’s satellite campus in Spencer (a 10 minute drive vs. a 45 minute drive) to take two classes via interactive TV. I am so glad that this option exists. It will save me money on gas, time on commuting, and give me a better chance of finding a part time job.
The job is what is stressing me out the most, right now. I’ve been unemployed since the end of March. I am looking for something part-time, with some flexibility so that I can still spend time with my family. And the kicker….I can’t work weekends. I just don’t have reliable child care, and Tim works every Saturday. I was hoping to find a part time CNA job so that I could get some more health care experience, but they all seem to require weekend hours. I’m getting discouraged and frustrated. I am really hoping that something will work out…and soon. I am not good at staying home all day. I get bored too easily.
Here, he’s giving the dinosaur a hug. I told you he liked the dinosaur.
