- Jul 14 by gobluernRight here! 1 kid and wife staying behind in home state. A mortgage and rent plus utilities in both places. $26,000 a year in tuition. All this plus, you know, actually going to school. This is what we signed up for though. I am excited too!!
- Jul 14 by missnurse01I have a stay at home dad and three kids. I have spent so much time worrying about how the house is going to run as a single parent household that I haven't had much time to worry about school! Very worried about the finances as I have not yet found out if I am going to get the grad plus. I see myself working weekends to pay rent and food and the phones getting turned off...
- Jul 15 by gobluernWhat are you going to do about insurance. My wife and I talked about her moving up with me but we need insurance.
- Jul 16 by missnurse01kids are going on state insurance. Hubs has minimal insurance thru the VA. I know my school offers one, but I do not know how much money it is, or how it compares to a private policy I can find online. Wondering if I have no income it will make me elgible for state insurance with all the new insurance stuff coming out...
I saw on another post the aana has a deal with an insurance company...I was looking at them too.

I'm quitting in 3 weeks, my loans are set to disperse covering cost of living and tuition, I get my wife's insurance starting September 1st and I'm taking a vacation next month. Couldn't be more prepared, or relaxed.
I really feel bad for you guys with kids, I can't imagine the extra stress. It's doable, I'd say 1/3 of my class are parents, but I can't say I'm jealous! A baby will be the wife's graduation present from me lol.

I'm glad you're confident. School will be challenging with a child. Anything worth doing is tough though. I'm as prepared as possible. I've been out of school for 2 years though so i'm dreading the grueling school work and study hours.
- Jul 16 by missnurse01I am actually excited to be able to go to school without working 48+ hours a week or two jobs at the same time! I have never had the luxury...
- Jul 17 by gobluernI hear you missnurse. I've taken off the whole month of July and it has been great!! I've worked and went to school at the same time since high school. I won't know how to handle it.
- Jul 17 by detroitdanoQuote from gobluernYep! I've worked part time or full time ever since I was 13. I've never had more than 3 weeks off of work since that time. It's gonna be nice just focusing on school.I hear you missnurse. I've taken off the whole month of July and it has been great!! I've worked and went to school at the same time since high school. I won't know how to handle it.
