Quiet Times Most evenings after work I sit here and wonder why it’s so quiet. I have gotten so used to my children being here and not to mention their friends. It’s funny during those times I wished for peace and quiet. I usually sit here and search the internet wondering what I can do to waste time. I found myself starting small projects and then I get bored. As empty nesters we knew our children would leave, but not as soon as they did. This quiet time gives me a chance to realize how bless I am. I’m so proud to see my children attend a university (one has actually graduated). Can you say proud momma?!
School for Me?? I have been struggling with going back to school to receive my Bachelors. I started online in 2011 to receive my Bachelors in Early Childhood. It became overwhelming because I still had children in school and I was required to stop working for my internship. I actually carry the health insurance for the family and that was not an option. So, I want to go back to school, but skip the option of doing an internship. I enjoy helping people and I currently work at a Department of Social Services as a caseworker. I’m ready for a change—yes at the age of 44. Any suggestions??
