And So it Begins

A few weeks ago Chris and I were talking about school. Specifically about how he would like to go back to school someday. I've always wanted to go back to college too. Not to take anything challenging, but just to learn. There is something about having been in that environment that makes you want to go back. In fact, last year I had decided that I was going to take a few classes just for fun if I didn't get pregnant by December. Obviously, Miss Haven came along, so my history 101 class is going to have to wait.

Just for fun I looked up UNM's continuing ed classes to see if there was something Chris may be interested in doing. I'm sure there are a few...except that I found some writing classes I was interested in and on a whim signed up for one. I have a bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing and the desire to write never leaves me. But, if I don't have someone pushing me I won't do it.

Today the internet course begins. I don't know how involved it will be or if I'll even have much time to do it. It wasn't expensive so if I can't give 100% to it, then I won't feel incredibly guilty. But, I've been looking forward to it all month.

You guys, too? We're enrolling Zach so he can start taking classes, too. The guy has actually been reading Chemistry and A&P textbooks for fun lately, so we figure he should at least be getting credit for his new knowledge. I bet Chris would be up for the same type of mind-wrenching challenge. As for me, I'd rather pursue some sort of culinary whim or maybe take up under-water basket weaving. You with me?

I'm proud of you, too, and can't wait to hear some of your new endeavors!
