I need to crack down on menu planning. With bedtime at 8 I need to try to have dinner ready at 6 so a isn't wring and going right to bed. So I will need to crockpot or have a quick fix dinner starting Monday. The good thing is that instead of getting off at 5 like I did before Dylan I'll probably leave at 4.

Thanks for the kind words guys! I talked to my dad today and of course he was super understanding. I just have issues with wanting to impress/please my parents and its kind of embarrassing/disappointing to me that I've been married eight years and am not where I thought I would be financially.

I do want to go back to school. The classes I wanted to take were already filled this semester so I'm going to shoot for next semester as well add look at some other options.

Since Abby was born I've kind of been having a hard time with Jordan. Before her, he was my buddy and now in full honesty he drives me crazy most days. I just want to love on her and don't have the energy to keep up with him. The constant chatter and questions and go go go is exhausting me. I lose my patience with him really easily. Were any of you like that when your second came along?

Laurie, how far is Camryns school from your house? Its a magnet right? I have to enroll J soon and am looking at all our options. The magnets around here changed their registration to before Christmas this year so we missed out. I still have to decide between five different elderberries.

Alicia, I think it's the age! They are very inquisitive and high energy right now. A gets bored very easily. I used to take her shopping when Gabe napped but all she does lately is complain and beg to go somewhere fun. And the questions...oh lord....

That's great you can leave at 4 Christine! I spent most of the day in bed sick and didn't make it to the grocery store to get the rest of what I needed to cook this week. And DH put all the meat from Costco in the freezer, so I have nothing to cook for this week. Ugh...why???

Alicia, I wonder if your city has any classes that you can take to start easing into it now? maybe there are some shortcuts you can take without officially enrolling in a program. You may find that having a design certificate/degree isn't critical to getting your foot in the door somewhere. I could be wrong about that though.
