Sick Kids, Birthdays, and Back to School

Okay, for all you loyal readers out there, here is an update thanks to a little prodding from my sister-in-law. Kids have been sick, then well, then sick again. It seems like it has been non-stop since Christmas. This past week Jackson had the flu and Chance had bronchitis. Actually, Chance is still coughing and runnig a low grade fever. Ella seems to be immune to it all (knock on wood).

Gary's birthday is on the 26th and I am trying to decide what we are going to do to celebrate. I am thinking we might have friends over and just cook and hang out. Then Jackson's 4th birthday is just a week later on March 7th. We are planning his party now. He decided to have a rock star party. This is great because it is really turning out to be a pretty cheap party, which is saying a lot in the world of Madison. However, it also requires a lot of creativity because there is not a whole lot out there in terms of a rock star party for a 4 year old boy. Leave to Jackson to want to be different.

Now, for the big news. I am going back to school! My job SUCKED! and I got fired (mainly because I did not incorporate myself quick enough). Anyway, I have been wanting to get my Masters for a while now and the timing is finally right. I am taking my GRE on Friday and then I have to get my application and financial aid application in ASAP!

Jackson State has a Masters in Social Work Program that I can do part time and finish in 3 years, which is just when Ella will be starting Kindergarten. I know some of you will think this is out of the blue, but this is what I have always wanted. I was actually applying to grad schools when Gary and I got back together...8 years ago. Everybody just say a prayer that if this is in God's plan for me, I will pass the GRE, get accepted, and get some MAJOR financial aid.
