I went back to school in my thirties. I was very hesitant to start but am glad I did it as I'm much more confident in my work skills now than I was before returning to school. My first semester I was actually pregnant with my son (funny being the oldest person in class and pregnant). After having my son I went back to work part time and cut back to one class a semester which was very stressful but manageable. I would suggest starting off slowly, maybe one or two classes a semester and go form there. Just try to keep some balance in your life. Good luck!

well, i try to take problems, one at a time, as u can see from my history..and it seems like u have 2, and you are blending them together..

Your husband is one

and your day limits (24 hours is all u get )

as for husband , i will pass on that one,since i am not a good person on that
so i will go to number 2

first - why are U doing all the work for the WE ? i worked my way through college and it was hard , and i did this when i was 20 with no kids or hubby !! I saw that my day was gone before i even got out of bed ! so u must rethink how many classes u can take , since u need to work to feed the WE ..and keep this in mind ! Aid requires a 2.0 gpa, so now u have added pressure to keep that mim ! i think u need to work , then build the school around that - maybe one class to start , then if u find it easy , go to 2 classes..also keep in mind, if u are going to transfer the credits - make sure the 4 yr college will accept the credits..i got stuck taking more classes at the Comm. College, and 8 classes were not accepted - so i lost that. AND if u are looking for a better job, look to see if the new company will pay for some classes . That is how I got some Grad classes for free, from my past employer ..AND no one is ever too old to learn ! u are talking to a girl , who is doing crash classes on french ! emoticon

keep in touch !

It sounds like you have lot going on and are really asking for permission to do something for yourself so you can be happy. I work full-time on 1st shift, hubby works full-time on 2nd shift, and we have 3 kids. I started back up with college courses a year ago part-time. It's not easy and it took a while for hubby to support my decision. I get stressed out trying to balance it all, but I'm also proud of myself for making the decision. Either you live with the regret of doing nothing, or you take the chance to fulfill your dream. emoticon
