And that job was horrible! It was bearable because at least I was home now. But this job made me see that education actually was important. I started back to school, and for the first time ever I had a 4.0 GPA. I enjoyed learning, and I enjoyed making good grades. After that semester, I was able to move to a much better part-time job, which I loved. I kept working on school, and finally got my Associate's. We then felt like we were ready to have a baby, and we were also financially ready as well. I had always wanted to be a stay at home mom when the time came, and I have been blessed to be able to do that. I know that school is still important, so I am now working on my Bachelor's degree in Information Technology. I am taking all of my classes online and it is really convenient! I work on my schoolwork while my sweet boy takes his naps. I think I enjoy school even more now, because all of the studying and homework gives my brain a workout. It's a nice change from speaking baby talk. :-)
So back to talking about my blog. When I started this blog, I was on this "new mom" high. I was so excited about everything, and I had great plans to do LOTS of things. I envisioned myself wearing a cute apron, cleaning my house, cooking meals, making our own soaps and cleaners, crafting, taking care of my son, and blogging about it all. My expectations were a bit too unrealistic. No, they were WAY too unrealistic. I still want to blog, and I still plan on blogging, but I don't think it's going to happen as much as I want to. Not right now anyway. My baby and my schoolwork takes precedence over everything, and it's kept me so busy that I haven't had time to do a lot of things I want to do. But my baby will only be a baby for so long! I am thankful that I am getting to spend so much time with him. And my time management skills seem to be getting a little better, which makes things easier.
And now, I'm going to utilize some of my newly learned time management skills and go take that shower while I can. ;-)
