WOW! I'll say that's a handful. I'm proud of you for making it though, despite the odds. Are you utilizing your skills in today's world?

Speaking of tough situations, I'm proud that I managed to raise two boys from my first marriage, and a daughter from my second marriage on my own. My mom did help me with babysitting, but I did the rest on my own. I was a cashier in a savings & loan, a legal secretary, a train and crew dispatcher @ the railroad, and finally a youth corrections counselor before retiring. Then I've been an on call substitute teacher for youth corrections (a lot of teachers are afraid to come to lock down facilities to teach--and the kids know it.) I'm now going to volunteer to teach grade school kids how to read. I had to get well first.

'Nuff said for one day. :D

Congrats Renie! That is a great accomplishment! You go girl!

I have to agree with Renie, that One of my very proud moments was when I graduated from college. I received my Bachelor of Science in Business and Information Systems (another term for Computer Geek) in December of 2000; and under tough circumstances......single parent of 2 young girls and working a full time job in the Aerospace Industry.

I finally graduated from college with a Bachelor of Integrated Studies: English, Anthropology and Administrative Systems at the age of 50. I was also a multiple Honors student and graduated Magna Cum Laude, with Departmental Honors in English.

My only regret was that my parents weren't still alive to see me graduate.
