  • You go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anything is possible-Just be positive you are in for a bumpy ride.

    If you feel overwhelmed then you might have to stick it out to next sysmeyster and then take turns....

    Try to schedule everything and stick to it. From breakfast to playtime, study time and bed time....

    Anything is possible, never say never, I am trying to remember that daily...

  • Not sure about the ages of your kids my husband works full time and is going online full time. Although Im here day and night it seems like my husband can take breaks from his work to help with the kids or do whatever. It can work.

  • Take turns doing your classes. Like you work for 2 hours then he works for 2 hours (or how ever long you want to set). Also, take a look at your assignments in the morning and maybe you can start squeezing some in during the day during the kids quiet or nap time.
