Where Am I and What Am I Doing???

Hello, everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I have not forgotten about my blog or any of my blog friends. It has been an urgent situation at my house and I thank God for keeping me and my family while we all endure.

First - my family ganged up on me and made me return to college to finish my degree. I started my Associates of Busines Administration degree through employee benefits and once I was laid off, all of that and professional certification was put on hold. So as of April 13, I have been attending college at my local university. The first two classes are online - Marketing and Sociology - and these classes are not nice. As a matter of fact my husband also returned to college and the children also. Weall attend at the same location.

Second - we opened a retail store that specializes in men's and boy's clothing. Our special interest is big and tall because those types can't always find clothing in their size which looks nice. The store is doing good after one month of business and we are glad that we were able to do it.

Third - We still needed an income to keep us going while the shop is getting on its feet. I am glad to say that as of today, I have returned to the working arena. I start Monday, May 4. YEAAAAAAAAA!!!

With all that said, please no that if you don't see a post, please don't forget about me. I am still here, just not as frequent. I promise to post as soon as I can as time allows. Until we blog again, Love Mimisatin.

Going back to school is no easy task. Best of luck to you, you husband, and kids. Good luck with your store and with your new job!!!

Good luck to you and your family. I totally understand about going back to school, I completed my associates degree a few years ago and it was a struggle, I worked two jobs and was/is a single parent of two. You can do it just hang in there, it will be worth it.

School can take up a lot of your time, can't it? LOL!

Glad you and your family are making it through.
