I get another excuse to eat lots of food and gain weight without having to feel guilty; How you might ask? Let me tease this a little…
Priscilla VanGeenen from Holland will be living with us for awhile. She’s has been with us for about 1 week and its been a big help and fun for us. Along with attending school, she will babysit Tyler during certain hours of the day as both Lindsey and I are back in school.
Currently, Lindsey is still trying to finish up her last few classes so that she can begin nursing school. On top her regular schooling, she and a few friends have also enrolled in a Phlebotomist class which she will attend every evening for the next 3 months. While this will allow her to get her foot in the door and help prepare her for becoming a RN, it will greatly benefit us as a family. The medical benefits provided by Kaiser and even better than those provided to us by the state. Plus the pay is ‘decent’ and will allow her to wash her hands from being an apartment manager and move on.
This may come as a surprise to most, but I dropped out of Sacramento State AND have started a new major (GASP). I have been attending the University of Phoenix and am 1 1/2 years away from receiving my degree in criminal justice. For those of you keeping track, this will be my 4th school and 4th major/degree. By the time I graduate I’ll have 200 credits. Ridiculous. But as many of you may also know, my original years in school were spend pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice, specifically FBI. And I have returned to this field but it is my intention to join the DEA. I’m enjoying classes and I really like the University of Phoenix’s structure; Rather than taking 14 credits (4-5 classes) at once, I take one at a time. More specific, every Tuesday I attend a 4 hour class for 5 weeks. Every 5 weeks that class ends and a new one begins. I no longer feel as overwhelmed with school as I used to.
Oh. I almost forgot. Lindsey is pregnant.
