As you can see I have been MIA! Life has happened to me, I will be honest there have been days when I wanted to pull out my hair. Here in Boone, NC we have seen 60+ inches of snow in a long time. The school system here has missed 21 days and they have taken away all but two days from Easter break. They are also making up days by going to Saturday school. You ask what does this really mean for me? Well it means that I am staying home with the boys or coming late to work and I am covered up with my own snow make up work from college. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed spending time with my boys as they are only little once, but being trapped in the house is to much. We can't even go outside because the temps are so low. They are calling for more snow this week and all I can say is I pray that they are wrong about the forecast, however I know they more than likely are not. We are known to have our bigger snows in March, so all I can say is come on lets get it over with! I am so ready for spring, more than you will ever know!!!

Thankful Thursday!

It's time to tell you all how thankful I am for a chance to go back to school. I always wanted to go to college, but after having my son at 17, I never got the chance. I graduated high school in May, had him in July and started the wonderful world of being a mother. After he was about 8 months old I did go back to school to get my CNA license, but I don't really consider that college. Along the way I landed a wonderful job at Appalachian State University, where I have now worked almost 8 years. Even though I feel that my job is secure I still feel that I am missing out that I didn't get to go to college and it's something that I always wanted to do. I started this semester at my local community college and I am loving it and so glad that I am doing this for myself and my future! I know it will take me a while to get my degree, however I know that I will do it! I can't wait for that day to come!
