  • I was a single mom working full time while I went to college full time. Keeping in mind my goal of finishing school and moving on to something better is what kept me from losing it. Looking at my daughter and knowing I wanted more for her is what kept me focussed on my goal to get through college ASAP. You can do it. Hang in there!

  • I have started walking regularly with some friends who are in the same boat. We catch up on old times, and the exercise really helps to keep me focused without stimulants.

  • There is no sanity. I also homeschool my son. It was a lot harder than I thought but I am hoping I will get used to it.

  • Sanity? What's that?

    But in all reality, I'm thinking that I'm really insane right now. The one thing that's keeping me going right now is my husband taking over a lot of the nights.
