Continued Education

When I decided I wanted to go back to school I had the problem of finding a major I liked. I changed my major a few times before in college, which is part of the reason I never finished. What I finally have decided on is to work towards an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Systems at our local community college. When I finish that I can then decide if I want to continue to work towards a Bachelor's degree through a nearby university.

If I ever decided to go on to obtain a Masters degree, I could check out the Masters Information Security program through Lew University Online. They have Managerial or Technical concentrations in the study of information systems security provided in a flexible online format.

Online Learning

My Hubby and I have been planning on me going back to school soon. I never finished college because we had kids and moved to a different state, but with the way the economy has been, we thought it would be a good idea for me to finish getting a degree, in case I ever need to go back to work to help support our family. The only difficulty is that with 3 small kids it is hard to find the time to go to school.

That is why online courses are such a great idea, such as The University of Scranton's MBA online program. They are the only 100% online AACSB accredited program. They also received a Top 15 ranking by the Princeton Review. With an online program like this, finding the time to finish a degree becomes much easier. No commute, no sitting through lectures in a classroom of hundreds of students, and the ability to do your schoolwork at times that are convenient to you. You can get an MBA in as little as 2 years with The University of Scranton.

My Ideal Cruise Vacation

I have always wanted to go on a cruise. From what I have heard they are amazing. So much to do and see. You get tons of great activities and food on the ship, plus you get to make stops at other great places. Carnival Cruises offers a lot of fun Caribbean cruises. My favorite vacation ever was to Cancun, so I would love another Caribbean vacation. Ah, seeing the beautiful ocean and swinging on a hammock on a beautiful beach sounds so nice right now. Of course whenever I do go on a cruise I want it to be during winter time so I can get away from the snow and cold and enjoy a few days of sun and warmth, lounging by a pool with a cool lemonade.

I think a cruise would be the perfect getaway for our 10th anniversary. That's not for 4 more years (we just celebrated our 6th, yay!) but that gives us time to plan and save. Since Carnival has such great prices for their cruises, the only real issue is getting to a city where they sail from. We don't live by any ocean so it would be a few days' drive or a plane flight to get there. A little road trip to Florida sounds fun, like a little pre-vacation vacation.

Aches and pains

So, I've had a headache off and on for most of the last month. I went to the chiropractor because I know it's a problem with my neck being out. Unfortunately that didn't last long until I hurt my back trying to be a kid again at the playground a few days later lol.

Right now it hurts so bad I want to cry and just lay down in a quiet, dark room and get a good night's rest. Unfortunately I doubt the good night's rest will happen. Nathan hasn't been feeling well and I'm sure he'll be up a lot tonight. Last night he slept horribly and Hubby and I are both exhausted. I need a break or Orlando vacations with no kids for a week.

So, I really was going to post about something else, something more interesting than my complaining, but I really cannot concentrate lol. It's way passed my bedtime and I just can't think anymore. My mind keeps wandering and my eyes keep wanting to stay closed. Goodnight!

Monday Madness

I do have 4th of July pictures, and I will try to remember to get them up sometime this month lol. We had a really fun 4th at the park with some of my family. We also did some lame fireworks on the 3rd at home haha, but at least Jason liked the sparklers this year.

Anyway, today I need to do a bunch of cleaning up. Dishes, laundry, vacuuming, etc. I have a pile of clean laundry that is taking over my bedroom that I really really need to get folded before I wash anything else. I also need to run to SLCC to sign some paper at the financial aid office and then later I have an appointment for a light treatment. It'll be so nice when I don't have those appointments twice a week.

My little sister spent the night last night so when she wakes up I'll ask her if she can watch the boys for an hour while I run to SLCC.

I'm obviously trying to put off my cleaning which is why I spent the last few minutes rambling about nothing important lol. Maybe when I'm a little more awake I'll actually post something worth reading.
