I started off yesterday full of motivation and promise of doing a long list of things. I got a lot accomplished, but not everything I wanted to. I did take a break to visit with my mother for awhile, and I enjoyed that.
One thing I did was check into going back to school to get my master's degree. The person at the school wasn't very helpful, but at least she gave me a number to call. The guy I talked with was very helpful. But I can't believe all that I would have to do to get accepted. There's a $25 fee, a 500-1000 word essay that I would have to write on why I want to go back to school, and I have to get 3 letters of recommendation. This all has to be done quickly, so there's a lot to think about. My biggest hesitation is that it's all on line. I don't know how that would work for me with my ADD.
I got a good night's sleep last night - I must have really needed it. So, I got a late start this morning. But, I'm already working on what I want to do today. (since the boss called at 9 last night and told me to not come in). I'm curious to see how much I can get done today. And I'm determined to fit in one thing just for me and for fun (like my impromptu stop at my mom's). Of course, the main things will be to hunt for jobs, pass out Avon books and practice my typing so I can take a test to try to get a county job.
