    How do you possibly study with YOUNG kids???

    I hope so...hubby and I are definitely separating, he finally came home at 4am last night...so I am done. My mom watched both kids for 10 hours yesterday while I worked. She wanted him to get a break from the kids, have time to apply for jobs and straighten up the house....what does he do go out all day and night...comes home at 4am. I am done. If I can make it through emotionally right now I hope I can finish school. He keeps telling me over and over that I told him I was doing this...he had no choice. He did, and he agreed to this. Of course if he would get off his lazy ass I would not be killing my self working and going to school all these years. Argh. Ok everyone I am done venting...thank you sooooo much for all your kind words of advice.

    Thank you!!! Its getting better...I did my crying last night, lol. Today was LONG as my daughter woke up at 430 but I lived through it and thats all that matters :) And if my relationship remains on the rocks than it makes it all worthwhile knowing that I REALLY need to finish this for my kids.

    Thank you Mindy for all your words, I really needed to hear that. I went in the bathroom, balled my eyes out, made some tea and have been studying again :) Its going to be SOO hard but I have to for my children...have to. I hope your able to get some peace and quiet yourself :)
  10. I need some serious help as I am about to give up and be in ALOT of student loan debt. I started an LPN 10 month accelerated program this week and I am sooo overwhelmed. I have a special needs (on the spectrum) 4 year old and a 9 month old....and a 40 year old child (hubby). I try to study in my room and my 4 year old just bangs on my door non stop...he is SOOO needy...he asks me for something every 2 minutes. If he is finally calm doing something then my daughter needs something...its non stop until everyone is finally sleeping by 900-930. By this time I have been up since 530am, school 8-3...including a commute of an hour each way. Then I come home clean after the disaster that occurs during the day because my husband stays home with them (he sits in a chair on facebook and playstation alllll day-but somehow manages to keep the kids alive), cook dinner and then I am done. I am so stressed and can't focus on anything. I still worry about the bills, finances, grocery shopping, car maint, on and on....and no I cannot talk to my husband because if I do he just says he is going to leave. I can't imagine trying to do this while being separated on top of it. Although I know in my heart it is going to happen one day. I could go on and on...but I just need some advice. How do you single mothers do it??? I basically am putting myself in the mindset of being a single mother. Granted yes he does stay home with them everyday all day...and I know its HARD...I do....but he doesn't do all the typical house maintaining that should go along with being a SAH dad...no doctor appts...nothing. Should I quit or try to make it work? Its day 3 and I am in tears already. Please note I am a tough cookie...I got my AS in Biology while pregnant and working one full time and one part time job, so I know I can....I just need someone to give me an honest opinion. Thank you for listening.

My 4 year old is special needs and is like having 10 kids...I also have to keep telling myself its for our future!! Maybe I should get off here and go read my book, even before school starts :)

    LPN vs RN on Long Island

    I am not on Long Island, I am about an hour north of NYC in Dutchess County. I am going the same route (I start Boces on Monday). I ended up getting an AS in Libealr Arts because I was waiting for clinicals for sooo long at DCC. I then went to Westchester Community and well it was worse there. I needed to score near perfect on the TEAS and well that was just not happening. DCC had a lottery type...which is just not fair IMO. SOOOO long story short I am doing LPN and hope to bridge right to BSN at Mt St. Mary's in Newburgh (Orange County). I think there are only 2 schools that offer LPN to BSN in NY, I am lucky its 20 minutes from my house :) So good luck...with whatever you choose. I went the LPN route because I am 32 and I just don't have another 5 years to wait. I know 2 girls that did Excelsior completely online for their RN right after Boces...so its all very possible without waiting forever :)
