Perhaps it’s lack of sleep or maybe the cold has finally started playing games with my brain.
We were spoiled with 2 weeks of spring like conditions and now winter has plunged us back in the deep freeze.
My entire body aches. Little teeny tiny bones in my hands and feet are screaming this morning so I am hunkered down at the eating bar with my cold cup of coffee instead and a bowl of fruit.
Today is a “throw down my white flag and surrender” kind of day.
I just don’t have it in me to wrestle into anything denim.
I ran a brush thru my hair to smooth out the tangles but I am still wearing the flannel pjs I crawled into last night. I pulled on a pair of knit socks with holes in both the heel and the ball of each foot. They are my “pretend your still barefoot but your not socks” and I like them.
On a normal school day I have to fight to get my kids up and out of bed. But a day off like today?
Last I saw all three of them were snuggled under a fluffy white blanket quietly playing mind craft. Still in their pjs with empty tummy’s but they don’t seem to care. Taking their cues from me no less.
I wish that today was going to be quiet but I am 6 days away from my first university mid-term and I have to squeeze in a workout and quiet time to study. Yup, freaking out just a little here!
Going back to school in your 40’s plus being a mother is challenging but not impossible.
I still get distracted by the mountain of laundry that needs to be folded or, the pile of dirty dishes piled high in the sink but, for the most part we pull together and manage.
Originally when the decision of going back came I was going to gradually work towards my certificate. And then it dawned on me.
Was I supposed to apply to get into the faculty? I could take individual courses one at a time but would I actually graduate if I went that route?
Investing this much time and energy into schooling only to get hung up on a technicality down the road wasn’t going to sit well so, I requested transcripts from my previous college and filled out an application form.
I took my application form to the post office Friday and now the waiting game begins.
I now understand how nerve wracking it can be waiting to hear back to see if I “got in”. Ack!
Between school, Bible study and working full time all my extra time has been swallowed up in “life”. It’s a busy season but it’s right where I have found myself to be.
A new path, a new adventure!
What are you doing in this season?
