Am I Really Enrolled In School??

Today started out…not so good. After the very sweet and touching entry I wrote about how loving my husband is, we got into a fight. I won’t go into details, but I ended up smacking him with a handful of the pretty flowers he got me. Yeah, it got that bad. A lot of the flowers survived though, heh. I still feel bad I took it out on the flowers .

Anyway, I was pissed at him most of the day and he kept trying to make peace, but I wasn’t having it. I was just that mad. Eventually, I eased up a bit and we started talking. We left around 1:30 to pick up money from Mom to pay for her storage unit. Then we got some drinks and drove to the school where I had my appointment at 2:30.

The appointment went well. Things happened so fast–I started thinking, “What did I get myself into??”. I officially start school on July 26th. I’ll be attending classes for 9 months from 8am to 12pm. I should graduate April 2006. I hope everything works out. Since it’s a private school and “basics” aren’t required, we’re going to be paying a lot out of our own pocket, but Mario assures me we can do it. I don’t think I would have gone through with it if he didn’t keep reassuring me that things would be okay. One of the perks is that I get a Blackberry LOL. It makes me nervous just *thinking* about having to drive through heavy traffic over there though. Tonight, Mario, John, Noelia, Jaylen and I (Eenan was with Mary, as always) went to the mall. I drove. I can now say that yes, I LOATHE getting off at that exit and quickly turning into the mall. People are so damn aggressive when they’re driving!

Tomorrow, I have so many calls to make. We have to figure out who’s going to be watching the kids for us while Mario’s at work and while I’m at school, which is most likely going to be Mom. We need to figure out how to pay her and all that. I also have to reschedule an appointment I missed and I have to call and check if my scholarship’s still good (it’s only $500, but hey, it’s something right?). John has a physical at 11am for his insurance, then at 12:30 we’re going to go pick up Mario’s paycheck at work and deposit for him. I’m nervous about that since it’s in a very busy part of town and it’s going to be during lunch…oy.

At 2, I have my appointment to sign the rest of the papers and all that junk at the school. I’m still in disbelief that I just jumped into this. I didn’t think I’d start this soon! I was really excited about it, but now I’m just really scared. What if we can’t do it financially?? We’ve got so many bills to pay this paycheck…it’s a bit overwhelming. Mario also needs to get the Prelude fixed so I can keep the Sentra for school. Ugh…I hope everything works out and falls into place. I’ve got such mixed feelings about this now!

*breathes* I can do this. We can do this.

As for Mario’s jaw…he’s got a strained ligament. He’s on meds for the swelling and pain and is only allowed to eat foods he can “slurp” basically. Poor dude.

Gonna go finish filling out my Financial Aide papers. I have a headache.

Hey, you can do this. I know exactly how you feel, wondering if you can take on all this and pay all your bills. Just take it one day at a time. Things will fall into place, i know they will. 🙂

You are the busiest mom I know! Possibly the busiest person, period. 😉

I hate highway driving (it sounded like that’s what you were doing, since you mentioned taking an exit). I still get nervous, and I’ve been driving forever. Good luck with your school!

Hey COngrats again! What will you be studying? I haven’t had time to update on my site cuz I am swamped with work. I will try to get road runner soon so that I can be online more often. As for for now, I have to use it at school. Oh here is the link to the petting zoo incident:

I plan on taking Frederick cuz they seem cute but II will take a lot of precautions. Take care!

I can totally understand your worries.. I’ve wanted to go back to school too for ages but I’m just afraid we won’t have that much money if I do go. But I can tell you that it’s gonna be worth it at the end!! So good luck to you with your studies ^^,
And also late congrats on getting your license!!! I’m so happy for you and glad that you’re using my advice 😉
I’m still without internet but I’ll be visiting your blog more after I got it, and that’s a promise 😀

Like I told ya earlier, I’m so happy for you! You’re definitely smart enough to go to school and do well, especially in computers! And yeah the FAFSA should get you a grant and/or a loan or two. Financial aid is definitely a priority! But yay! 🙂
