Part of my New Beginning was to start a different career path. I began an Assoc. degree program and have done very well. I considered law school (I already have a Bachelors) and was talked out due to time and financial considerations. So, I started Graduate School at a great university in the fall, while still taking a class in my Assoc. program too.

Grades in. All A's. Holding down two different school programs, having primary custody of my kids, both kids have special needs, own a house and somehow date in there too.

Boo-yah.

This is true in a lot of cases I think. ^^^^^ Once our brains get ramped up, there's no stopping us!

Thanks, guys!! It was a very difficult semester. I wish I knew how to cut myself a little slack, but I am pleased.

Next semester? International business and international litigation. Gulp.

I'm thankful for a two week breather without a project/paper/test hanging over my head!

Congratulations. That is really impressive what you have done.

My son got all A's his first semester in college. So proud of him.

He put in a supreme effort as you have done. Not easy!

Good luck in your international business classes. I have traveled to over 20 countries with my job and really enjoyed it.

We have had our ups and downs but managed to always avoid litigation. It can be tough getting paid sometimes!

I don't sleep much, I'm constantly tired, I always feel like I could be a better Mom and have a cleaner house. But, dammit…I earned straight A's.

If I could afford a housekeeper, I would have one in a heartbeat.
