I need motivation!!

I'm currently enrolled in a online school for medical transcription and editing program. I have completed only two modules as I don't have the "motivation" to make myself work on my studies. I'm working two jobs and own my own vending machine business. I have two kids that need my attention, a house that needs attention and I need sleep!!

My kids start back school in two days so I'm *hoping* I can get motivated to do mine :( I have legit excuses as to why I'm not studying but in actuality I need to force more out of myself!! (After I get my degree, I can quit both my now jobs and just work one in the field I'm studying. There are so many advances and pluses when I graduate)

Ladies, any suggestions??

LOL something has seriously got to give

The girls at work already think I put too much on myself.

Sounds like you need to balance everything. You started the program you have to decide for yourself what its going to take to finish it. Personally speaking...all this talk of school has got me thinking I need to finish college. I want to set a good example for my boys. Bottom line is, it'll take a lot of hard work but you CAN do this and in the end you'll know you did it. Hope that helps. you rock hugs

Both of my kids know and understand everything I'm putting myself through. They know I'm doing it for them and myself.

My husband told me today that he's going to "make" me sit at the laptop everyday for at least 2 hours just so I can get back into the school thing lol (maybe after the kids are fed, bathed and snuggled in the bed)

 You did put a lot on your shoulders.  Something will have to give but maybe it won't be as bad as you think.  A few dirty dishes in the sink won't harm anyone, lol!

Sounds like a plan..just make sure you take time for yourself. If I go back to school I'll be going it alone. My family will be my support system but its ok.
