Five Words

1. Thinking do I really want to finish school? It's only about 7 more classes before I can finish up the BA degree and then...then what? Then I have to spend another couple years shelling out a ton of money, doing even more work for an online masters degree in library science or archivist. Do I want to spend the kidlet's wee years always tired, cranky and pressed for time? Or do I want to chance losing the credits I already have amassed over the years and have to start from scratch when I'm in my mid-40s? Oi.

2. Reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac for the first time. Can't believe I never read this before. I found it laying about the house and said, sure, why not? Well, I'm digging it! Yes! Yes! Yes! It's fun and light while still managing to make me think.

3. Imbibing spicy basil noodles with fried tofu for lunch (at Bangkok Thai) following with fancy tea and a chocolate chip cookie back at work (ho'made last night, the cookie, that is).

4. Purchased I shouldn't be making extraneous purchases but I'm not very good about that. I just ordered this print and these cards because I just can't get either one out of my head.

5. Weekend! Taking a homework break tonight and maybe watching an old movie while knitting and drinking wine. Taking the kidlet to the library for new bedtime reading. Very few plans and no 'should do' items. No trimming the crazed rosebushes or hedges, no painting the bedroom, no cleaning...must remember, NO!

I'm struggling with the school question myself. I'm "writing" now which means slogging away at a novel because I want to write, but knowing the chances of getting published are slim and in the meantime we could buy more stuff if I went back to school to get a nursing degree.

Never mind that I already have two degrees.

Never mind that it would take me about 3 years to finish nursing school.
