and it was the worst of times. Honestly, as a parent I have felt the happiest of emotions and the saddest of emotions. The ultimate roller coaster ride.
Honestly some days I wish I could go back to the days when my kids where just little. Life was so much simpler then.
But I am sure that I am learning and growing as a parent in ways that I could never imagine. Some days I am tired of learning hard lessons and some days I wish that I wasn't the easy safe target for the ones I love to take it all out on. Please don't get me wrong. Life if filled with happy times 90% of the time.
But on days like today, I think I would just like to runaway.
I am grateful to know that I am not alone and that I know where I can turn for peace

Surprise, Surprise but this is why
I returned to college this semester (after skipping a year)
I have found what seems like the perfect schedule and I am loving it
I only have one regular on campus class once a week
The other classes are online and flex classes where we meet on campus 6 times during the semester.
It has taken some fine balancing but things are coming along and working out and I have almost found that I am addicted to learning new things.
I knew if I was going to be able to do it I would need to have classes that really interested me.
I have some fabulous classes. I started slow - I have 3 full semester classes
Digital Photography (finally learning to use my SLR)
Microsoft Word 2010 (this class is blowing my mind with everything I am learning)
Marriage and Family (really enjoying this class)
Then this week I add 2 late start classes
Microsoft Excel (I figure I really need to learn spreadsheets. I am guilty to fault at asking Janna to always create my spreadsheets)
English 102 (I know it is sad I have never taken this - I am excited - it is a semester long research paper and I have the same teacher I had for English 101 that I loved)
So the balancing act is constant - but I am loving it and getting more done, because I am having to use every minute of my time well.
Debating about cutting my hair short to save time. But then I think of the up keep of short hair and think I might be better off on a daily basis, but then I have to find time every six weeks to get it cut.
I am torn.
I have been putting some of my pinterest ideas into action and I am excited to share some photos soon.
