Follow me on my journey to earning a teaching degree at WGU Indiana. I'm not your typical young student! I am beginning my journey at the age of 42, with 4 children and working hard to achieve my dream. I began my quest for education at WGU on October 1st, 2010.

My favorite study buddy !

Yes, I must admit I find it difficult to study without some very good friends! The bad news is my best friends seem to be Caramel  Frappes or on occasion a Caramel Swirl Iced Coffee with extra cream and sugar! Those 45 pounds I lost just might find me if I don't find some new best friends :) !

Updates and Wow did the time fly!

Wow, it is hard to believe it is the end of March already. I do have a couple of updates. I DID finish all my planned courses and manged to add another before the end of my term this month. It was almost by miracle that I felt well enough to finish the last one.

My health has been a big issue this term. I've had several very painful ulcerative colitis attacks that lasted for months on end. I didn't quite make it until my insurance kicked in, and ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. I am feeling better, but I do have my bad days here and there. I am still going through testing to figure out what is causing all the pain and attacks. Not to mention my hernia has once again appeared. This time bigger and well lets just say I don't know what a belly button looks like anymore ;), mine disappeared. A golf ball now sits in its place. Yes,,, gross I know,, but it's life!

I decided not to take a break after all, and I am looking forward to my new term April 1st! I must admit I find it amusing that my term starts on April Fool's Day. It sort of mimics my life most of the time. I suppose it is some sort of cosmic side joke the universe is playing with me.

I have decided to strive and keep reaching toward my goal. It seems like it is just right around the corner, and yet so far away. I suppose when I finally graduate I will look back and think, wow, I lived through it all and laugh. No on second thought not laugh, but sigh rather loudly with the breath of relief.

School and My Health

I was off to an awesome start for my new term, but once again my health seems to have reared it's ugly head and knocked me a bit off track. I haven't been able to complete any more courses due to being ill. I have taken the month of December off to deal many of my health issues. I will not have health insurance until February 1st, and I am just praying I can make it until then. Prayers would be appreciated.
