So if you haven’t heard by now, my life’s undergoing a bit of an overhaul… things I’d anticipated for quite some time now but had been scared to do. The most significant change is that I’m parenting and providing for my family alone now. Which is very exhausting and difficult and highly unrecommended unless you’ve done absolutely everything you can to work things out. I did. And I feel more hope and peace now than I’ve felt at any time in the past ten years. Shortly after the separation, I was making dinner and chatting with my kids, when my son walked up to me, put his arms around me, and said, “Momma, is this the real you?” I know the kids and I will be ok.
I decided that though I -could- scrape by on what I’d been earning, I want better for my kids. So I’m going back to school to fill in the gaps I didn’t catch with my self-education.
Full time school = less time work. So I’ve subscribed to the affiliate programs for a few companies I trust and have added their links. Some of you might be upset at me for throwing in ads; sorry to jump shark. At least it’s for a good cause, right? 🙂
