Yep. I'm going to take fewer hours at work, which will unfortunately mean I will need some PA. Why? Because I'm going back to school, baby! I'm so excited. I'm getting my degree in nursing!
For a while, I had a really decent job with really decent pay, which is why DH and I decided we would try for baby #2. Then, two days before my pregnancy test came back positive, i found out my store was closing and my job was going to be thrown out the window. All the careful planning, all the careful financial foresight, and we got screwed. I took a huge demotion, a huge pay cut, and now can barely scrape by. i've decided I want to get into a profession where I have the ultimate job security (like healthcare) and where I can provide a better future for my family. I know I'm going to have to get some PA to help out with a few things, and apply for grants, but I'm happy to know that when I'm through with school, I won't ever need PA again. I wish I didn't need help from the government, I wish I had gone to school a long time ago, but I unfortunately can't change the past, so instead I'm changing my future.
I'm so excited!!!
