And it's over. 

Being done with school is a little bittersweet. I have been running at double speed for so many years now it feels a little unreal to know that I don't need to worry about the next class, or paper. From working two jobs and studying part time, to working one job full time and school full time, to a job, a child and school.... now it's just me and Juliet. No job, no classes. I barely know what to do with myself. Cleaning the house is the first order of business of course, this last paper took a toll on the cleanliness here. But once that is done, what will I do with my days? I can read for pleasure again. I can plan play dates and maybe even go to the pool.
Part of me feels like I need to find a PhD program. I've been going to school as long as I can remember- 6 years now getting my Bachelors and Masters. But if I am honest with myself, I need to wait. A PhD and a toddler are like oil and water- you can put them together, but they don't mix well. And Juliet deserves that from me right now. She's dealt with "distracted mommy" for 3 semesters and the poor kid deserves a break.


Cognrats on finishing! I can attest, Ph.D. and baby are difficult. You're making a good decision to wait. Education is always there, but babies don't keep.
