Hello out there!!

Well, school started on Monday. So far so good. We only take 2 classes at a time, they last 9 weeks each. Right now I am taking a General Distance learning course which everyone has to take and a writing course. It hasn't been bad at all so far. I may be hitting my sister up on the writing course though! My final project in that class is a Power point presentation.... thank goodness my 14 year old can do power point!

Weather is beautiful here today! Rain tomorrow of course since i am off.

Macy started ball practice last week, she is such a hot dog out in the field...ball hog...she loves it though.

Emily has been trucking along at her school work...8th grade graduation is June 2nd...i can't believe my "baby" will be in high school next year!! Her dance is May 29th, so we need to go dress shopping next week for her.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Off to do some catching up on some of y favorite blogs!!

Call Me Crazy.....

I am officially enrolled in school....
I am signed up, scheduled, and have already completed my Biography....I start May 11!!
I am attending the University of Phoenix, online. I am taking Healthcare Administration....yes I am still working FT, and yes I still have my 14 & 9 year old...and YES I am going to do this.....I have to do this.
As most of you know I am a staffing specialist. Well, let me tell you...the staffing world "ain't" to pretty out there right now in case you haven't noticed. I figure that people will always need health care, besides my first career choice has always been in the health field. I went into Nursing out of HS...but found better things to do at school....i worked in a nursing home for about 7 or 8 years and it has just been downhill for me ever since i quit there.
I have always wanted to have a degree...but for some reason or other my plans always fell thru...well not this time by gosh...i am going to do this.!!!
On the homefront:
Things are GREAT!! Kids are great. Ball season is in full pun's son plays high school baseball which consists of at least 3 games week. My youngest starts practice tonight and will play 2 games a week for 4 weeks starting in June. Emily is ready for school to be out...she is looking forward to babysitting her sister this summer I am sure! Yard sale this weekend. This yard sale is a huge deal in my neighborhood...but a headache if you live there and need to get out of the neighborhood. But a little extra cash is always good.
Mike and I are good. I finally feel like I have someone that respects me, accepts me and my kids, enjoys us and makes us laugh!!
Yes people....i am finally HAPPY!!!!!
So...where you all been, how have you all been doing? haha
