I'm a college student AGAIN!!!

It's been a while since I've posted anything. And so much has happened since then. I wouldnt know where to begin so I guess I will just stick to whats going on now.
I've been planning and wanting to go back to school. Yes, I am very aware that I am crazy for wanting to go back to school. But I do...at least at the moment. I'm sure once classes start I will regret it. So anyway. I had applied for all the financial aid stuff way back when and applied to Lincoln Land (which is a little community college...its a start though). At the beginning of July, I got the financial aid award letter from Lincoln Land. Pretty much, I would be getting a Pell Grant that was almost double tuition. I was pretty pissed at the time cause I did think I would get to go back to school. Well yesterday, I registered for classes!!!! Considering classes start the 24th (well the 22nd for me) there wasnt many open classes left. I got stuck with an online Composition class, a hybrid Biology class (all my class work is online and I have to go to lab 4 times during the semester. Turned out the lab was from 6:00 pm- 9:50pm oh joy!), and a Political Science class that is on Saturday morning! Such a great schedule, dont you think? But how my classes fall, I wont have to put Lyndon in day care yet. So I can save up that money for a little while. Then in Oct, if I get into to Certified Nurses Assistant Class (*fingers crossed* I'm #2 on the waitlist) I will have class 5 days a week from 8-12. So I will have to put Lyndon in daycare then. I'm just ready for classes to start...I've been anxious since I left the school yesterday. Its crazy.

About Lyndon now, I guess. He is a wild beast. That pretty much sums it up. I'm sure you thinking I'm kidding. If only I were. We spent quite a bit of the summer in LA. Which means he spent a lot of time with his Mamaw. And that can never be a good thing. Especially when Mamaw lets him do, say, and act however he wants without any punishment. I have to be the bad guy then, and try to break him of all these new habits. Which leads to horrible headaches from fussing all day. I usually takes 2 weeks to break him of 1 week spent with her. Well it was almost 2 months so I'm guessing sometime late next year I will have him broken of it all. He is doing really well with potty training though. He wears big boy underwear during the day unless we will be in the car for a long time and he only wears pull-ups at night...mostly because I dont want to chance him peeing in the bed.

I guess that's it for now. I will update more later
