Yes, It's Been A While....

Since I updated my blog! I do see that I have some lovely person who posts in chinese to my blog....gee thanks for all those "wonderful" comments - NOT.

All is well, just busy with work and puttering around the house getting some "chores" and things done before I totally throw my life into upheaval when school starts! While I "know" my decision to go back to school is the right course for me right's still really scary to me at times. I wonder things like -
  1. Can I even learn anymore? Seriously, I feel like my brain has no more room to absorb anything some days. I can't tell you what I had for lunch 2 days ago!
  2. HOW do you study? I haven't "studied" in years - a skill I will have to re-learn (see...back to the learning thing again).
  3. Am I going to overwhelm myself? Will I fail completely?
  4. Am I just too old to consider making such a big change - like career? Seriously....I'll be 49 in 13 days. I obviously won't be carrying a full course load - so who knows how old I'll be when I actually graduate!

And what is with this heat wave? Go away already! Hot, humid weather makes me crabby and it makes my hair ugly and anyone who knows me...knows - it's all about my hair! This weather is actually making me long for that 4 letter word that starts with S and ends with W. I have no use for this weather and it's killed my grass and my poor flowers - they are so pitiful right now!

I've done a little scrapping over recent weeks...not a lot though. Haven't had too much mojo.

I also find it a challenge to keep a positive attitude going - it is so easy to get sucked into "stinking thinking". It really does require daily care and feeding to keep a positive attitude going. I think I find the challenge hardest at work. There are so many negative attitudes and no matter how much you try and avoid the hear it...people seek others out to share bad news and gossip. Attitude is contagious....sometimes I think bad attitudes are more contagious or maybe people think it's more interesting.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I have missed you!!!!! I know what you mean about the cranky, yucky feeling with this heat....I HATE IT!!!

Makes me feel so tired and stuck in all the time drives me nuts!!!

Do not worry about going back to need to call me so we can talk...I went back in my 30's to get my BA degree and I the hell am I going to do this raising a teenager, full time job, household and a husband...but I did it...You will fall into a routine.....find what works and run with it!!!

I too have been surrounded by negative....friends going through separations and some family issues and it has sucked the life out of me!!!! I hear it all around me and I just want to scream SHUT UP...I can never figure out why some women think that they need to live a real live Nora Roberts ain't happening and the grass is not always greener on the other side....

I am taking some time off...I need to recharge and really do not feel like scrapping!!!!

Wishing you a great week!!!! We are taking some time away!!! LOVE YA girlie!!!

donna. you CAN do it. you are brave, smart, and gorgeous... the trifecta, baby.

my mom is almost done with her degree. she took this last semester off because my sister moved in with her hubby and two kids. and two cats. but anyway, mom will be 64 this year... if she can, you soooooo can.

:hug: the positive thinking is something you have to work at, just like a relationship. it's worth it, though.

and the heat? well, i can't do much for that except invite you to visit me. we'll have highs in the 70ºs today, and that's HOT for us.

remember, you have your own fan club - you can do it! :)

That yo can do this is a given. If they offer a study habits class like a lot of places do, take it. It helps you get organized after being away from it.
Learning is something that is fun if you are motivated to do it. You don't forget how to learn.

I'm tired of those chinese comments too. I might just make my blog private or something! :(

You are doing to do GREAT with school. You'll find your groove. You've learned SOOO much in business over the years I've known you. You'll absorb the school info just as well.

Chin up! Keep smiling. God's got your back. Matt 6:33
