New Poster saying HI!

  1. just wanted to say hey everybody. i've been reading these forums for about a month now. i have gotten lots of laughs off the humor discussion and read many interesting posts.

    i am presently enrolled in a five semester adn program and am just getting ready to finish up my first semester. i am a 40-year old, single parent with two children--ages 14 and 7.

    reading everyone's posts has given me much encouragement and at times relief to know that i am not the only one in this rocky boat!! thank you!

    Ha!Ha! I know I tend to scare people a little when I tell them how many children we have, but there's only 4 left at home.
    The scary part is that my 72y/o Mom is here for a week AND my 4y/o grandson!
    I'm more freaked because of my Mom instead of all the kids!
    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

    Hi Julielpn, I think we emailed a few times. Don't you have a web site for home schooling? How old are all of you children? how is school going for you. ........I know I am ready for a xmas break.

    Hi Janleb~
    No... I'm sorry. I think you must have me mistaken for someone else. I don't have a home-schooling website. I don't think I could do it! Wish I could though... these schools are getting quite frightening around here!
    My children range in age from 21 down to 7. 6 girls and 3 boys.
    I am soooooo ready for break! Even though I am beginning to think it's more stressful than school having my Mother here!
