Hooray! I've made it to week two!
Wow - full time job, full time mom, full time student. I'm doing it! And I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself. After a few more weeks, I'll really have a system down for organizing my time most efficiently.
One thing I'm rediscovering - sleep is only marginally required to function in society. Much easier than sleepless nights when the kids were little. This time, I choose to stay awake until midnight or to wake up at 4 a.m. to study.
Ahhhh...the freedom to choose what works for me.
That's the coolest part of being a student again - this is time devoted just to me. And I don't feel guilty about it, thanks to my super-supportive family and lots of cheering from my dear friends.
