Photo Challenge Day 4

My heart is breaking tonight for Steph, who at her 9 week graduation ultrasound after her FET, found out there was no heartbeat.  Please say an extra prayer for her and her husband tonight!

Day Four:  School

I would be a full-time student if I could afford it.  Multiple times I have strongly considered going back to get my PhD, but the dissertation scares the living crap out of me.  Luckily, my employer offers tuition reimbursement, so last fall I was able to take a graduate class in Compensation & Benefits (the really big book in the picture).

I've also taught at local colleges as a part-time job since getting my Master's Degree 10 years ago.  This spring I decided to take a break from it and focus more time on other things (like becoming a mom).  I feel good about this decision, though I know I will miss it.


  1. I debate going back to school for my master's degree all the time but, like you, I am trying to become a mom. So that comes first. I'm not sure we could afford IVF and tuition at the same time.

  2. I'm so behind on my blog reading...

    Back to your previous post, I love that you have your mom's piano. I really hope that your little ones are playing it some day. :)

    I often think about going back to school for my PhD, or a Master's in a different subject area. And then I remember how wretched life as a graduate student was and the feeling goes away...
