Lunch Box

I copied Kaisha. She does cool random things that makes you want to copy. Like taking pictures of herself in the mirror or wading in the bay wearing a fancy dress.

In a couple of days I start back to school. I took chemistry last quarter. This quarter I have to take fifteen credits. I'm not exactly sure how to pull it off with the single mom of 5 kids thing going at the same time. But maybe its like cliff diving, where you just have to jump and hope like crazy its going to work out. I'll be breathing anatomy and physiology. My lab partner (gone lifelong friend) will be holding my hand through cat dissection. Here kitty, kitty ...

The big picture is a job that'll buy food and heat. My goal is to start the physical therapy assistant program this coming fall. It's a competitive entry program, so we'll see. Five consecutive full time quarters (they say 17-19 credits). Two years from right now to be finished. The academic stuff is fine. It's the academic stuff combined with taking care of the people that live in my house that is a little unsettling. It helps that I'm gushing with love for my kids and totally in love with helping them through life. And I'm happy. Happy in a way I didn't know I could be. Now if I can just keep from getting in a dither with the busyness that's just around the corner. Pray for me.

Pray we will and enjoy doing it too. You are brave-taking a deep breath and jumping in. Just today that's all you can do. Way to go back to school...quite honestly, I couldn't do it. I love watching you do it SO well.
