Wishing and hoping

I haven't written in my blog for many months now. With 2 kids in school, I find myself lacking in time. I'm the first one to get up in the morning and usually the last one to sleep at night.

I'm not complaining at all. I love being a mother to my kids and a wife to my husband. Sometimes though, money is short (with two growing kids and rising prices of commodities, what can you expect) which makes me want to have a regular work. But the way things are now, having a regular work presents a problem. I am torn between being there for my family and my desire to earn.

I still do some odd jobs online but not as much as before. What I really dream is to have a business that I will enjoy. I would like to put up a day care or preschool but I would like to have a masters degree in education first and I am not prepared to go back to school yet. Another idea is to put up a play area in a mall or maybe a snack shop. So many possibilities, but not enough funds, lol. Maybe I can make soap, fabric softener or dishwashing liquid at home and sell them. If you're reading this and you have a recipe, I hope you'll share them with me (an environmentally-friendly one please).

God is good! I know that in His perfect timing everything will fall into place.

Mom with a Masters in Education Online said...

Hey ExtraSuperMom, Great post, I can totally relate. Don't give up yet, even though its not easy it's not impossible for you to get your Masters Degree in Education. I am a single mom of 2 young children and love to teach. I was able to earn a Masters Degree in Education and more specifically a Masters in Elementary Education Degree Online at Dominican University.
Dominican was great. The classes were easy to understand and the support from professors and other classmates was awesome. I can completely relate with you when it comes to the money situation too. I had no money for school at all and was able to get approved through Dominican's scholarships for masters degrees program and received grants, scholarships and student loans that completely covered my tuition and put some extra cash in my pocket.
It really meant a lot to me to be able to go to my classes right from the comfort of my home. I got to still have that quality time with the kids while working on my dream career. I hope this helps, it certainly helped me get where i wanted to be in my career without sacrificing my time with my kids.
