Im Desiree, and I was laid off from my job last month, with no prospects in m feild! :( I loved my job. I worked as an apprentice optician. So that sucked. Now I've decided that its time to go back to school. I've always thought about getting a nursing degree, but always had a billion excuses why I couldn't do it.
Im in the process of trying to qualify for some grants and what not to help with worker re-training, so keep fingers crossed for me!
Anyway, so I graduated HS in 1997, and Im now going back to college. I have two kids. My oldest is 9 and then I also have a very energetic 2 year old. My husband is really supportive, but he works most of the time, so its mostly the kids and I.
Im not sure how Im going to afford daycare while Im going to school? I applied for state help and make $20 too much..... Which is beyond frustrating to me.
Anyone else kind of in the same boat? I can use all the advice I can get! Im really worried about juggling all of it. I also might have to go back to work, although where and how is beyond me?
