« on a lighter note: let's give out some free shoes | Main | for better or worse, it's how i feel »


my mom just finished her masters degree...with my 9 year old brother and father to care for, a leadership position in the Boy Scouts, a job as an elementary school art teacher, and other family & friends to keep up with. i kept telling her that every other week or so, a day just like the one you had is not only deserved, but needed for your sanity!

besides, a clean house makes studying easier!

mandy, i need to hear stories like that constantly, thank you, you have no idea how hard it is for me to feel like i got this all covered. thank you! i can do it!

I think that day sounds lovely.

I recently went back to school when my son was just 3 months old (he's now 10 months old) and it's hard, but doable. I find that when I'm finally given the time to study, I bust my butt doing so because I don't want to take any more time out of my day away from my family. Also, you learn to celebrate and embrace the tiny breaks you do get from school and relish every minute of it. After each exam, I allowed myself to completely take a break from school. I wouldn't touch my biology book. Even though my teacher encouraged us to work ahead, I knew I mentally could not keep working without a break. I got a 97% in the class. My method did work!

I don't know you, but you can do this.

thank you marianne!!! every pep talk helps me so much :)
