    If I ever get the crazy idea that going back to school again would be a great idea, if those words every come out of my mouth, if you hear me thinking aloud how nice it would be to be called Dr. SusieP., someone had better smack me upside the head! This has been a very long 2 year process and I am running out of steam.

    2 months. 2 months to go.

    My email inbox is full of messages that say "Get your degree online now!" "Be a teacher!" "Online ...

    Here's today's revelation- As a mom, hearing your child throwing up in the middle of the night is one of the worst sounds possible. That said, hearing the cat throwing up in the middle of the night, UNDER YOUR BED, might be a smidgen worse.
