I just spent an hour talking to one of my girlfriends. We are both in nursing school and will be working together at the hospital.
She was asking how I wanted my work schedule to go and how we were going to schedule study time in too.
I informed her I am not sure how I am going to make it all work but I’ll manage somehow. Between work, school, JJ’s school and his soccer schedule…I don’t know how I’m going to make it work. I’ll muddle through like I have in the past.
She then launched into this huge lecture on how she’s worried about me and how I’m going to cope and tried to remind me how important this semester is and how many people fail it.
I understand the importance. I also understand my family needs to eat, my family needs to have their fun too, my family is most important. She doesn’t have kids, she doesn’t know what it’s like to see your child want to be involved in school activities and how it feels to tell them “no, you can’t play because I’m too busy working and studying”. How is that fair?
So, I’ll put my cape on and become supermom for another semester. I’ll be tired & I’ll be stressed but I’ll be there for my family.
