An Exhausting Day, and It isn’t even over yet!

PHEW! boy am I exhausted. As you know, from my last post, I’ve been sick and/or recovering from injury, for almost 2 months now. So that means, my house got disgusting…really, really disgusting. Granted, the fiance did at least, most of the time, wash the dishes…that still left me with everything else. Tomorrow my future mother-in-law is coming up to our place to go to church with us and then go to a Bridal Expo with me afterwards, so I needed to make sure my house was not a ball of cat hair and dirt. UGH. I feel like 5 showers wouldn’t be enough to get me clean! The sad part, I’m still not done and as of writing this, it’s 4:30pm and I’ve been going since 10am!! Though, I did take some time to do extra spring cleaning type stuff as well, such as, throwing out old magazines and rearranging the bathroom and the book shelves. It was much needed! I hope I can continue the spring cleaning part the rest of next week, at least until Thursday…this brings me to my NEWS!!!

So, for quite some time now, I’ve been debating about going back to school, pondering over it for a couple years actually, and I knew when I quit my job back in March of last year, that I couldn’t just be a homemaker forever. At least not while we’re so poor. I needed to help in someway. The loss of the Fiance’s job really put it in perspective. It was easy to keep talking about it and not actually acting on it, when we were doing alright financially. Not good by any means, but the bills got paid and we had food to eat. So one day, while watching tv, I seen an ad for one of those trade schools and they had said something about Clinical Medical Assistant. And something clicked, so I got up and found the nearest school that offered it and sent in my info. I always thought I’d end up going to ITT Tech for computer engineering, but here I was, applying for CMA at McCann School of Business and Technology. I set up an appointment for the interview and low and behold, they loved me! I got in on the spot. There was an entrance exam and I passed it so well, that I qualified for ANY program at the school. So it’s been a bit of a whirlwind and it still hasn’t full sunk in as I had my interview on Wednesday, and my Placement testing on Friday. Thursday night at 5 is my orientation. It would be Friday but I have a funeral to attend (the great grandmother of my Fiance passed away) so I was able to go the night before. And to top it all off, I start Monday March 3rd! So soon! Send me all your prayers that I can keep up good grades and actually do well and like the program!

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!
