Be encouraged. Your kids will be ok if your ok. I thought I had totally scarred my kids from when we struggled so much when I left their dad. There were alot of days, no heat, no electricity, a little food, homelessness..but today they are both well adjusted and remember more of the great times we had than the bad. Trust me they will take their cues from you..I remember the Christmas we didn't have a tree or gifts, they remember the same day very differently..they recall how it was one of the best Chritmases, We painted a tree on our living room wall and made each other gifts. There was no food but we had a bunch of junk from neighbors(they had dropped off cookies, candy, cupcakes) ..while I worried about no turkey dinner, they remember how cool it was they had a day of sweets! Just hang in there, you are trying to make a better life for your family, don't be so hard on yourself :)

My Bachelor in information Technology
I went to one school for a year and then a few years later I sign up for another school. not done yet. I was leaving my home at 7.00 AM and getting home at 2.00 AM five days a week. I has to take a break for a year beacuse I got sick. My heart wanted me to slow down some. So I did. The funny thing is that I can only do one big project at a time. But I am still here. That is all that counts.
If the people on this planet would stop fighting each other we could spend that money for school. Have every man women and child be educationed.
A world without war.

I understand exactly what you are saying and I keep telling myself that this is our only way out. My kids understand that it may be very rough for a while but in the end it will all pay off. What are you going to school for?

Going back to school at our age will take some sacrifice, and you are letting your children know it can be done. you just have want it. when first went back to school a few years ago, I had to move in a place that I did not want to go. But I knew it was the only way to get where I WANT TO BE. So now I am ready to move where I should be. But it was a long long way to go. there was times I could not eat, if I pay rent. At one time I was working two jobs and in school, talk about being burn out. I knew the light was there even if I could not see it. I just knew. Now I see the light and everything else.
It will get much better.

Thanks BJ. It just breaks my heart for them to have to go through this just because mommy wanted to get an education. The worst part is that I just finished taking a child welfare class this quarter and homelessness was one of the topics. They talked about all the effects that it has on a child. Talk about a guilt trip.

Oh trust me I have been praying. I overheard my 8 year old son praying last night. He was asking God to find us a new home and to make me stop worrying and crying. How sad is that. I did not know he know about the crying, I usually go to my room and shut the door. I worry what this is doing to my kids.

Because of fear for the result. You may just not sure about what to expect and so you re not sure you want to do that. however, if you need to do so whatever the result is pray and do it
