It seems like every time I get out of school for the semester my husband and kids look at me like I am a stranger sitting in their living room. We always have a hard time reconnecting because they are a little bitter about me spending so much time doing something that is for me, and not much for them. It is really hard to balance it all, my hats off to anyone who has mastered the art of keeping their family satisfied through this program. I am almost done, next semester is my last one, I cannot wait. Anybody have any creative, clever things that helped them and their family through this?
