And I'm so nervous! Years ago I started working on my accounting degree and never did finish it. Now I'm finishing it.

This semester I'm taking 2 internet courses and 2 real courses. One of the courses is English composition and I'm pretty nervous about that one. It's been a VERY long time since I've had to write a paper.

My biggest obstacle though will be getting there on time. I have to be there on Mondays and Wednesdays by 8 am. It's a 45 minute drive plus I have to get myself and my three kiddos ready and dropped off at grandma's first. I'm sure my mornings will be quite hectic!

Wow, it sounds hectic! I think I'll have a hard enough time getting myself ready for school. I'm starting school tomorrow too, and I'm probably as nervous as you are!

I wish you both the best of luck. Starting school is always stressful cause you are never sure how you are going to manage and all that. Regardless I think that you can do it and update us on how your first day of school goes. Good Luck!!

My first day went really good! I'll copy and paste from my blog/ another post on this board.

It was really nice. I don't think I've had a better first day of school EVER. Not even kidding you. I went to school really early because I wanted to try to get into a math class that I really wanted.

The highlights of the long story?

-I got into the math class I wanted (I already know the teaching style of the teacher, because I've had her before.)
-I checked out the textbook from the library and I finished the homework before I had my German class.
-I had a really good First German class.
-On Wednesday I managed to get some school supplies that I needed without asking my Dad for the money. (He's paying for my schooling right now, so when I don't have to I'd rather not ask my dad for the money.)
-My history teacher is really nice, she gives a lot of extra credit. I will be taking advantage of it.
-Also I went to the bookstore and found the book I needed for math, for $126. I decided I didn't want to buy it at the price. I went online and found it for 45.00.
