So it seems that life has again run away with me.  Am I surprised?  Not a bit, and you shouldn't be either.  In fact you should probably be surprised and proud that I'm getting back on here as soon as I am instead of holding out for another 1.5 years to match my last 3 year hiatus.  I've got a gigantic move coming up next month but once I'm on the other end of it things look promising for me possibly getting caught up on the years and years worth of backlogged photos.  Big man will be turning 5 in September and will be starting Kindergarten and Little Miss will be starting PreK.  Her days will only be half days but his will be full days and that means I'm going to have the hours that she is in preschool to myself to do whatever it is I want!

If you're wondering what happened to Nursing school and why I'm not working, well part of the reason I'm moving is that the job market around me is horrendous.  I graduated and got my LPN but now finding me a job in anything but a nursing home or home health (both respectable jobs, just not my cup of tea) has turned out to be darn near impossible.  So, with the job market so awful I have been working on more schooling, pre-reqs for my RN/BSN if you need to know, but I have now been in school full time without summers off for three years.  Add in there the stress of divorce, and now this move, I'm going to be tired once we reach our destination.  I'm going to be tired and I'm going to take some time to be a house-wife before jumping back into the fray of finding a job and getting back into a Nursing program that will get me a useful degree.

So, in the next couple months my title will go from Mom/Student/maybe-if-I'm-lucky-photographer/sometimes-writer/here-and-there-crafter to Mom/housewife/writer/photographer/crafter.  I like the new one a whole lot better don't you?
