I am 39 and in LPN school. I have 4 children still at home, and a husband who is more maintenance than all of the children and pets put together!
Monday thru Thursday, I am in school (either classes or clinical) until 4 or 4:30p.
Kids get up at 6am, and we're out the door by 7:20, so I can drop them off and get to school.
Home by 4 or 4:30, eat supper, get some studying done & get to bed by 10, only to get back up at 5 and start over!
Fridays are basically the same, but we are out of classes at noon. I come home and take a nap till it's time to go to work at 6p. Take my books to work with me, as I work on a dementia unit in a nursing home, and all is usually pretty quiet between 2a & 4a.
I work from 6p to 6a on Fridays and Saturdays. It's a quiet and peaceful time for me, but the only thing I don't like is that I hardly see my kids at all on the weekends.
Husband and children help out alot! Just taught my 9y/o how to fold a load of laundry the other day! She's pretty good!
So, you hang in there! You can do it! Anything you want bad enough, can be done!!
