I was so Blessed last night to have so many dear family and friends come to my new home.
My Daughter came up with the idea of having a “family” night so we could just spend time together and it has morphed into a really great time.
She usually brings her son and a girlfriend. Our last gathering was at her house and we did the traditional pizza and a salad and pop-corn and a movie. We were up soooo late that night, lol.
This time, it was at my house and her Mother-in-law also came and two of my friends. It was so much fun that we never got to the “movie” part.
My Daughter, Erica, had also suggested a book club which is really great, since as a kid, getting her to read anything that wasn’t required was an act of Congress, lol. Subhannah Allah, she is a voracious reader now and I am so incredibly pleased that I am happy to find a way to cram some “reading for pleasure” into my schedule of “reading my assignments” that I’d stay up even later.
Generally, on a day to day basis, I clean a house from 9 am to 1 pm then, if I have another one I’ll start that one about 1:30 pm until no later than 5:30 pm, then race to school (16 miles away) change into scrubs in the ladies room (a lot of us do this) then attend school until 10:30-11:00 pm, drive back home and cram some studying in if I’m awake enough, then sleep by 1 or 1:30 am. Repeat daily. If I only have one customer (usually) I go early to school and study, do assignments then classes so that by the weekend I am a total ZOMBIE, but in the long run, it’ll be worth it.
I already have an Administrative degree, but since the trend in hiring is toward medicine, especially with so much of our median population nearing retirement, I decided to add the Medical Billing and Coding to it so that I would be a more marketable commodity. InshaAllah, we’ll see if it helps. I sincerely hope so since even with the grants I am adding to my student loan deficit 😦
