I have good and bad news. Good: I passed my Praxis I exams! Yay!!! So exciting! Also, looks like I will be getting all As this semester. I've had an 18 hour courseload with 2 preschool-agers, so I feel accomplished there!
Bad: I've just gotten my first shut-off notice ever. ...it sort of makes me think about reconsidering the whole college thing, or at least put it off again.... but I really don't want to do that. I don' t know if that's selfish or not. I want financial security for my family, but there is no way I could take care of my kids well, do well in school, and hold a job that is enough to pay all the bills. Husband has been out of work for months. It's really difficult to find work in our area at this time. I'm not giving up hope, though! It's just really frustrating. I don't want to rely on gov. assistance anymore, but there's no other way if I want to ensure a financial future for my family.
Thanks for reading and any advice or encouragement. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving. Going anon on this one bc I don't want any of you to think less of me...
