I received my acceptance letter!
Unless Alan gets a job out of town and we move, I will begin graduate school in October.
I am absolutely excited, but in ways, I am overwhelmed, too.
Will I be able to balance my home life with my new life as a grad student? I have never been a student mother of two at-home children who need baths and clean clothes and healthy meals and field trips and chit-chat. Will we be able to live on a smaller income when I cut back my hours at my job? Will I be able to stay within my grocery budget on a more hurried schedule that will tempt me to eat out and buy convenience food?
I hope the answer is yes. My confidence is a little weak.
