Better Days



I couldn't resist that title. I love that new song AND it absolutely describes today for me. After being down the last few days today has been a "better day".

This morning I registered for college. Yes, after 12 years (and 3 kids), I have decided to return to school. I am signed up for my first term of classes and am aiming for my Associates in Business Administration/Accounting. It's going to be a little rough for a while. Because of Brian's rotating schedule I am having to do most classes via Distance Education (i.e. interenet or TV courses). Will be a whole different way to learn and I hope it works out for me. I've always been a numbers sort of girl and have enjoyed the accounting work I did before having kids. I'm just excited about the prospects of getting my education and returning to the workforce once Carissa is in school full time.

In other "better day" news - Memory Makers has asked to use my "Scappoose Sunset" LO in the "Best of Masters" idea book. This is the original LO I had to send with my submission. I never thought I would see it again, but if they publish it they will return it to me! YEAH!!!

I have to give a huge shout out to Deanna for her help with my Masters entry. Having someone to bounce LO's off of before turning them in was such a huge help. And I don't think I would have followed through with out without her. THANKS DEANNA!

So, today's been a better day. Thank goodness
!
