And thus it begins

School started Wednesday last week. Normally I really wouldn't pay attention or care as to when school was starting but this year is different. This year is the year that my little family embarks on a long journey. Alex decided to start school. Orginally I thought we were planning on him starting in the spring, however, somewhere along the way, it quickly became him enrolling for the fall semester. Now here I sit, after a long, LONG afternoon, with a sleeping baby in the nearby room, blankly staring at the computer screen. My husband has enrolled for 2 classes as that is about all that he can handle due to the fact that he's working full time. He has a math class and an art class which requires him to be at school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.

I always loved when Alex came home from work for 2 reasons. I missed him and I enjoy spending time with him and it also meant I could pass our son off to him for a little bit. Erick always loves when Alex comes home and gets excited when he sees him. Now, that won't be happening so much. I know it's going to be hard, it's already hard and this is only the second day of class, but I know it will be worth it. In the end, he'll have a degree, we'll have moved one step forward in the progression of life and all will be jolly. Ok. Perhaps it won't be jolly, but at least we'll have his college education taken care of, well the bachelor degree. Then it will continue on to the master and hopefully he'll be done after that. One can hope, right?

I sympathize with you Amy. It is hard to not have the husband home at a decent hour, but oh so worth it in the end.

Cheer up chum :) It does suck, and it's not fun, and I know that Alex doesn't like being away either but the reward will be great!
