Life changing decisions

My weekend was amazing!  It started alittle rocky with a $200 tire replacement on my car.  Thankfully, I had them checked because they probably would have blown.  Then when I'm 2 hours away I get a phone call saying the kids were sitting at school an hour and a half pick up time.  The babysitter forgot to pick them up.  Hubby was on the way so it turned out ok in the end. 

There is nothing like spending time with a good friend.  No pressure to act a certain way or say the right things.  We shopped and gossiped and watched good movies.  I bought a couple of new shirts and even managed to buy a size 18/20!  I did a little happy dance in the dressing room.  AMAZING!

So, what's this life changing decision thing all about?  My friend, Gen, and I were talking about school.  She is enrolled at the University of Maryland and taking classes online.  I asked about tuition, financial aid, classes online, testing, etc.  I've decided that if I'm eligible to receive a full ride scholarship/grant then I'm going to go back to school!

I talked with hubby because I can't make this decision by myself.  It will take commitment from the entire family, not just from me.  He was so supportive that it made me cry.  As we sat in the car he said, "The only thing I have to say is why didn't you do this sooner?" 

After this huge decision is made, I get a phone call for an interview.  Go figure!  It will be my luck that I get this job.  I'm not going to bomb the interview today.  If I get it, then it will be another decision to face.  It's good to have options, right?

Well, you know I am excited for ya! You will do great and remember you don't need straight A's!!!!! I can tell you here in Florida we need behavior analysts with autism on the rise. My teacher DD is contemplating going back to school to become an occupational therapist- lots of job opportunities there too.

Options are great! Keep us posted and good luck at the interview (or should I say, just be YOU, and then choose from the 2 paths before you!)
